[…] The show was announced just recently and we already know not only the date of air, but also quite a lot of the cast members. All previous information can be read in this previous post. […]


Watch out, Bleach! ;)


Extremely star-studded. Looks like they’re putting a lot into it, so I hope it turns out well…


This sounds so interesting!


Will go read it before they copyright and delete all… :D


Nice going…


Sounds boring, tbh. What’s good, though is that big companies are actually having a go with a webtoon… Good luck to Yasunobu Yamauchi. :)
