Wasn't that creature just making some noises?

Yes, like "ku-ku-ru-kuuu!" or something, lol.

I was glad to see Nakajima doing some VA work again but turns out it's pretty much a non role. Wasn't that creature just making some noises?

Glad that they brought Mizuki Nana back to voice Tamao. I'm sure her scenes are gonna be super adorable now. Don't have any opinion on the rest.

Oh and the new character designs look perfectly fine including what we've seen in the trailer. I'm actually fairly optimistic for once.

^ I think Yoh's new face design looks perfectly fine
no need to look goofy, he's the type of character who is more relaxed, laid back, so his new design shows that perfectly

They should update Yoh's face to look more goofy

Now he does not look like the guy we all fell in love with

Don't change to change. Only change stuff when it's bad and when you think that you can make it better
