I'm crying. I've been waiting for years for this remake and even when is schedule for next years, I'm crying for the new trailer, it's look beautiful. And I'm so glad that (at least) Orphen have the same seiyuu that the old series.

I wasn’t particularly looking forward to this to be frankly honest but it’s good to know that they’re taking a bit more time to hopefully improve things.

On another note, this Fall Season is already packed so I might’ve opted to miss out in this anyway.
