I had yet to check the PV, damm, it is really looking sweet, at least a noticeable improvement from S3.

Gotta say I wish Origami arc had this kind of animation to it...

A shame we gotta wait until 2022, but I was very impressed with the PV. DAL is in good hands and I'm glad they did it justice compared to S3. Can't wait for it

Darn it! I was really looking forward to this! Oh, well, as long as the show is good, the studio can take as many time as it needs.

Shame on the delay, but at least the PV already looks better than the whole of S3 did. I rather that they take their time, instead of giving us disappointing quality again.

First it was Shield Hero, now this.

As if this has any impact of Fall 2021 being amazing.

It's funny to remember that once upon a time this franchise was just a silly sci-fi harem with no big ambitions.

The good thing is that we have more time to read the novels.
Mukuro is so cute on this PV omg

crap, I was waiting for this, well, can't do anything but wait for 2022

Well said, at least no more waiting for updates and I understand the COVID-19 situation which is affecting the workforce which is why it's postponed.

2021 has been a shit year for anime, and the fact that I dropped anime which are Jaku-chara Tomozaki, Ex-Arm and Fruits Basket The Final, I mean they're just terrible to be honest.

Onto 2022, and let's see what happens from there.

Fall has been ruined.

But hey that PV looked very good.
