That's quite the 90s style preview with that gritty thumping music.

The manga is really good. Glad it will have a remake and hope the studio won't mess this up.

A little sad that Shinkouhyou won't be voiced by Ishida Akira like the old anime. With this remake trend, I hope there will be a remake of Samurai deeper Kyo.

Lol those people got baited for haikyuu. I still like retro getting anime adaptations. I am now waiting for 20th century boys adaptation

Personnally, I'm waiting for the full DQ : Dai no daibokken one.

Is that something you fear or was it annouced. Because it may be like Ushio to tora, that was annoued as a 2 cour, and got 1 more for season 2, because it worked pretty well. I'm surprise they took the Wen Zhong/Taigong Wang fight for the teaser (I'm sorry, but I don't know the name in japanese, in my country they used the chinese names in the manga). But yeah, from promotionnal to teaser, it looks like that will only cover until Wen Zhong's fall.

Also, guys, the design is very close to the manga one.


You can also check wiki for the name: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Hoshin_Engi_characters

I also think like you. If the anime did well enough, maybe there would be a 2nd cour to cover Jyoka arc.

The animation looks good but the characters look shit. Shesh.

I can't tell if this looks horrible or good lol


After watching 0.51 in the PV, I say that it is good



Oh, wait your right.

So random studio who has only done Starmyu and a shitty LN adaptation suddenly makes 2 anime this winter ?

This cant be good.

IT'S GONNA BE GREAT! I LOVE HOUSHIN ENGI!

C-Station is rather new so I think having this with Yuru Camp is actually neat but worrying (edited since I looked its slated for Winter)

Staff looks pretty decent although I have a bit of a skeptical feeling towards the PV. Buuuut I'll give it a chance, since it caught my interest.

I feel the same for Akira!!!
Long live King Akiraaaa!!!!!!!

So far, I'm loving this new cast, specially KENN for Kou Tenka <3
I will miss badly Akira Ishida for Shinkouyou...
And Yozen will sound more... masculine/mature? Maybe?
Strange change for Shinjin... but I support Nobunaga Shimazaki :)

Kensho ono + hosoyan + nobunaga : kuroko no basuke cast

This is not something tailored for contemporary short series.


I thought the same thing, I hope they will cover everything and without rushing it too much..

To be fair, he has lost certain of his voices. Just compare him as Chô Hakkai in the 2000s and now.


Well ,he is older so his voice should change a little but he's still good, like Zura in Gintama. He also voice the first seat in Shokugeki no Soma. Both of them are popular anime.

I've planned to watch it when the news first came out but after seeing the teaser i'm not so sure : the visual is too horrible. I don't know the old version nor the manga but my first impression isn't really good so i will let it go.

*Raises hand* I misread it as Haikyuu too.

Nov 1, 2017 4:37 AM by Oona_Shea

i misread the name to Haikyuu..

Nov 1, 2017 3:52 AM by AniDeMax

Lol like other I read Haikyuu too xD
It's the same studio than Starmyu (didn't watch anything for the studio except this) and I like the cast so maybe I will try...

Nov 1, 2017 3:47 AM by Moune-Chan

>TFW you click on a thread because you misread the title and discover it's not Haikyuu S4 that's being announced

Fucking REEEEEEE
