The Yozakura trailer looks really good.

In the other hand, it's such a shame Atsushi Ootsuki is directing the new season of To Love-Ru. I wasn't a big fan of the original show, but at least it had some potential. But now this guy will probably turn it to smut like the rest of his shows.

As long this ToLoveRu sequel follows the manga, things are going to be ju~~st fine! Wink

for Yozakura ... strange choice to not use the same character design used for the original TV series (and Durarara). This feels more like K-ON Mad . Himeee !! Crying or Very sad

I think they should hurry up and reboot the Pokemon series because the story has been going for far too long for anyone to really give a damn about, we're pretty sure BW is not gonna end the series, it's gonna end on a cliffhanger and then whatever new game is made by that time will be adapted into a new series to continue it.

Or at the very least, why not remake the entire series into a faster-paced story like when DBZ became DBZ Kai? Filter out all the crap like the entire Master Quest arc and maybe that would boost some interest because there are just too many episodes for newcomers to get started on.

Pokemon is a show where you can just join in the fun everytime you want. You don't have to watch the previous episodes, you will understand what's going on rigth away. It'd be meaningless to do a reboot.

About the Yozakura trailer... I can't say I like it, but we'll see. The character designs are strange (though I didn't like the series' either, the manga looks much better), but as long as they follow the manga (what the tv series couldn't do), it'll be fine.

Well if they did an anime based on the Adventures manga, most people annoyed with the Pokemon anime may stop complaining as it is the superior story...but I'm fine with the anime. Diamond and Pearl actually was a pretty interesting arc and had some memorable rivals, and was much better written than Pokemon Advanced. Black and White should be interesting since Brock is permanently leaving the cast, and the new characters seem to be interesting enough to bring in some fresh blood...

Oh good, according to the press release Dramafever.com also releases shows on Hulu, so it looks like there won't be an interruption there.

Very much looking forward to the new Yozakura. And I hope the OAD will get licensed. This is what it should have been in the first place. Love the manga, can't wait for this.

If it makes you feel better, that's what the games are doing. They're starting over the route numbers, isolating Isshu (the new region) from the other four regions, and giving us about 150 new and unique Pokemon so it's like Red/Blue/Yellow.

Great it seems Ash won't even be in the next Pokemon. He's supposed to be the main character, it's been that way for over 10 years. I wonder how many people in Japan are complaining about Ash (Satoshi) not being the main character from the looks of things. Confused

Ash is still going to be the main character, they're just introducing the two characters that are replacing Dawn and Brock.

Here's a thread from another site that has all the new information that's been revealed. Note: If you don't want the game to be spoiled for you, you should probably stay away.

I feel that Yasuda's designs came across a lot better in the original Yozakura anime, in that when I first saw Durarara I instantly knew they shared a character designer but I'm not sure I would have made the same connection with this version.
