Nice! Togashi's battle manga series(Yu-Yu Hakusho, Hunter X Hunter) have been pretty solid, so I;m looking forward to seeing how he approached a different genre.

I'm really looking forwards to this one. It looks really good; definitely a funny look at the alien trope. I hope that, since the manga is pretty short, they're able to get the whole thing in one series. Excited!

Won't be watching this.

With only 3 (1 maybe) of 10 that i'm watching and given the others are subscription only - Crunchyroll have disappointed me.

Can we please refer to Togashi as the creator of Yu Yu Hakusho over HunterxHunter? I mean, seriously, for 1, the guy didn't put that manga title off for close to 3 years on one break and then after completing about 1 volumes worth of chapters decides he needs another year off and takes one of his most anticipated battles, Nefelpitou vs Powered up Gon, AND FINISHES IT OFF SCREEN!

He's working on the 28th volume of Hunter x Hunter. YuYu has 19 volumes, making HxH his 'main' work now, especially since it's his newest title as well.

Looking foward to this. YuYu and HxH are at the top of my favorite shonen shows beside One Piece, so I'm hoping Togashi didn't fall flat with this between the two.

Well I'm curious about this series so I guess I'll use my new trial subscription to try it out. Very Happy

Very, very happy now. If someone simulcasts Fractale, that will be all three of my most anticipated shows.

I will probably try out a few of the others as well, like Beelzebub and Gosick.

YES! I really wanted Wandering Son and Level E on Crunchyroll, but after the news about Gosick I was afraid if they were to be simulcasted, it wouldn't be available in my region. I think this means that all 3 out of 4 shows I really want to watch are on Crunchyroll. I feel like my membership is worth it now Anime smile

It's funny how they refer to Australia as 'the Commonwealth of Australia' in this announcement, when in previous announcements they just used 'Australia' Smile

I still don't really know what Level E is about exactly but I'm glad I'll have the chance to find out first hand.

This wasn't on my radar the first time around, but now I'll check it out. It seems interesting enough.

That's across that board in that announcement ~ Kingdom of Sweden, Republic of South Africa, etc. etc. Even when they list by regions, its not just North and South America, "Central America" gets named explicitly.

That could be the short period when the Level E announcement went "TBD" ~ maybe someone in Japan objected to the informal names for the country, and Crunchyroll had to fix it up before they approved it.

Nice! Togashi went with a pretty different art style with this manga, so I'm wondering how that will translate over when it comes to the anime. Big fan of YYH and HxH, so I'm really looking forward to this one!

Wow, we have such a divergent connotation of "all." Laughing

Wonder if they'll update the show to go with the tech of the times....
