Honestly amazing to see how Furirin started from voicing and singing as Ruby Kurosawa, to not only starring in a series with A-list seiyuu but also singing the OP in her actual style. Though one could argue that Love Live being a popular IP in Japan was still a good start for her career, she still wasn't dealt the best hand compared to the other cast. Add to that the fact that its only after 8 years that she's getting these opportunities, it all becomes an inspiring story of perseverance and grit.

Hoping this series is successful, or at the very least becomes a hidden gem for the season.

What a beautiful dog, and it will be voiced by Archer himself, great, it's a pity it's not Shinpachi Tsuji with his vast experience....
