    That looks promising.

    You watch anime?

    • Kylie Sturgess

      Of course!

        It’s nice to see the noitaminA block’s intentions to get back on track (at least partly) for next season. Some of their recent offerings (Guilty Crown is a prime example) were rather stale.

        Now for someone to do a number on whoever decided adding Black Rock Shooter was a good idea.

      Everyone should.

      This one looks good…and with Watanabe’s directing and Kanno’s music, it is especially promising.

  • J. J. Ramsey

    Yeah, Shinichiro Watanabe and Yoko Kanno working together on a music-themed anime looks like a winning proposition.

    And it’s nice to see someone else out there who’s into anime.
