All of them looks so visually nice. But I'm really waiting for psycho pass!

Oh come on, this means Sarazanmai will be 1-cour only. So mad about it, Ikuhara deserves more than 12 episodes

Given is actually a good manga, I'm glad to see some decent BL get adapted.

Sarazanmai I'm really excited about... and it fast approaches!

Potential BL, open BL and Psycho-Pass ... They finally admitted that PP is popular with yaoi fangirl, lol?

A BL music-themed? It look interesting and I like the visual though I’m not a big fan of BL... Plus it’s for summer where I already have 2 other music animes. Well I will keep an eye on this, plus Egu for one of the character!

If Carole & Tuesday really turns out to be yuri, then these two shows will make up a rather amusing combination.

So filthy garbage, sequel to garbage, sequel to garbage sequel and probably garbage. Same old, same old when it comes to noitamina. I like when a series is so bad you don't even need to watch it to know it. Saves time.

You left out the Sarazanmai hotsauce

Given looks really good, I would have watched it regardless but when I found it was BL that only got me more interested. Its rare that they choose a good BL manga to animate so I'm looking forward to this one hopefully being decent. Plus, I read that its not really yaoi and its actually just about gay characters. So hey, maybe it won't be full of stupid fanservice for once, and we might actually get a good gay romance. Guess we'll have to wait and see.

I'm crying happy tears right now omg Given anime is happening! One of the best well-deserved BL for an adaptation. Beautiful visual and stunning PV. Characters looking so great. Cast different from drama CD but 10/10 new cast. I can't wait to hear Mafuyu singing.

I really really hope Psycho Pass S3 will once again regain its glory from the first season. Season 2 was a huge letdown.

Sarazanmai looks pretty interesting given the staff lineup and premise.

I read part of Given and it was pretty good EXCEPT I DIDN'T KNOW THE NAME OF IT WAS GIVEN SO I COULDNT FIND IT ON MAL

glad it's getting an anime adaptation!

Will definitely keep my eyes open for Given, hadn't heard of this manga until now as I'm not that interested in Music genre anime, but the PV looks incredible.

Mar 14, 2019 9:41 AM by Mimerio

I could not be happier with the anime's adaptation of the manga given(^^)

Sarazanmai sounds good to me

Mar 14, 2019 8:37 AM by Fundashi666

Given doesn't look that bad...could it be? A good BL anime series? It's been a 1000 years.

Sarazanmai and Given look promising, Psycho Pass too but I gotta watch the other seasons.

Mar 14, 2019 8:12 AM by BackstageMage

Oh, these look good!

Key visual for Given looks especially detailed and hence amazing!
Will keep an eye on it for now! I hope the BL isn’t too excessive though, i don’t mind if it’s just on the surface like how Banana Fish was. Not too sure about Sarazanmai at the moment but I’ll be sure to keep up with the other two! Kabenari is surely going to be even more amazing, movie budget and whatnot, but I really hope Psycho-Pass Season 3 won’t be a flop like Season 2 is said to be(I haven’t watched it yet, you see, but I’ll by Fall Season).

Needless to say, but Fall Season is looking so much better with this noitaminA and +Ultra’s lineups!

;____; I'm so happyyyyyy, Given is one of the best BL I've ever read, the PV looks so prettyyy can't wait!!! I'm so glad it airs so soon asdlghadlhakdhkadgh ALSO PSYCHO PASS 3!!! Fall season is gonna be amazing

Shitty lineup to be honest. I wish noitamina didn't go to shit. The Mappa original has potential. I expect nothing out of Psycho Pass S3, they clearly only care about milking the franchise after season 1.

Mar 14, 2019 7:34 AM by alpha_shadow

The noitamina block has become the fujoshi block.

Mar 14, 2019 7:02 AM by removed-user

The PV for Given looks lit. Didn't expect sth like that at all. Nice to see it on noitaminA!
