Shinichi Machida did great in Death Note, but Zetman is a failure… Let’s see what happens with Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure.

Read the manga actually and am a big fan. Bought all the volumes…and still would probably not watch the anime.

Same here – read the manga but never seen any of the OVA but will probably give them a chance before the new version starts.

I will love this one actually. Not a lot of people like the animation style, but I love the case AND the idea, so – can’t wait. :)

Poor Naokatsu Tsuda…switching from the visually rich Kuroshitsuji to this… :D
