      Studio Fantasia? I’m calling: Muv-Luv!
      OK, highly unlikely, but if it’s a shot in the dark, why not aim high?

      I bet Anime Insider fell from a 2-pronged attack by the recession, and the internet. After all why buy a magazine, when you can get instant up to date anime news on the net for free?

      Still dissappointing to see it go. R.I.P

      The only interesting thing to me is the Spice and Wolf sequel, yeah :) Really enjoyed the show, hope for more story in the upcoming 2nd season.

      Thanks for the news :)

      I’ll be in the U.S. for this Spring season beginning, so probably my selection will down a little.

      Have heard rumours that Suzumiya Haruhi will have a “rerun” this April. Seeing how the DVDs have already been released, I’m guessing/hoping there’ll be something special about the re-run. Maybe extended footage? New scenes? New re-drawn parts? Or perhaps the whole thing is just another troll announcement… I don’t know.

      But given how amusing Suzumiya Haruhi-CHAN was, I feel like watching/rewatching the series again.

      I like the post of Taiga and Ryuuji.

      Regarding a new season, i hope Queens Blade is blogged lol. Nevermind if the plot sucks, this blog has been bare of ecchi anime this season, and needs to be fixed. :)

      The Hayate trailer shows the School Sports festival, a very important Hina-centric story arc that is a prerequisite for the key Valentine’s Day arc that Hayate fans have been longing for for ages!

      The best piece of news on this day :)
