Chio's School Road is one of the funniest manga I've read. Super hyped.

It's good watching that Chio-chan trailer with absolutely no expectations because that was one heck of an experience! Shocked

I'm disappointed Angolmois isn't a Sgt. Frog spinoff based off the character in question.

Project D - Another piece of crap using time resets, I'll pass.


But the names attached on it tho. Takuya Sato worked on Steins;gate so he knows about dat time travel stuff and Yoshitoshi abe ... i mean, he's just character designer but usually when he's in something its pretty damn gud.

Of course that doesnt automatically means thats its going to be great but i wouldnt dismiss this just because its ''another time travel crap''

He also directed Orange, which I thought was garbage.

I've heard a lot about Shield Hero and the PV looks nice, but I can't help feel a little apprehensive about the director and series composition writer's relative lack of experience. Hopefully the strength of the source material can carry it, writing wise. The animation looks nice and that isn't surprising with the character designer's prior work, so there's that. With their work on Chivalry and Alderamin, I'd want Angolmois' lead writer on Shield Hero, but that isn't how it works.

Speaking of Angolmois, I'll definitely check it out, though the director isn't very experienced either.

The staff for Shield Hero imo looks questionable but the PV looks great so far.

Hope they can make it into a 2 cour still.

There's already someone doing it on here lol!! It always makes me laugh when people judge the content, by it's genre/cover. They did the exact same thing with Re:Zero and Kono Suba. Well from the looks of the characters from PV, one would hope the anime is two cours.

The synopsis is pretty good, so I most likely will watch that, also Angolmois, I believe that takes place during Kublai Khan's reign.
