Cool design for lead character of Noragami, already a fan of him, wonder what the story is about.

It is by the artists of Alive: The Final Evolution
His art improved so damn much during Alive, just looking at early and later chapters gives you a very good impression.
Yep, that's the same character. Really loved Alive (using the chance to absolutely recommend the series), but it he only did the art, the mangaka who wrote the story passed away Still looking forward to see what he can do on his own.
Ah, my mistake. I knew she was a woman, but it's actually two? Wow ~niichan

Z/X Ignition PV
Last edited by naruto-niichan; October 18, 2013 at 07:15 PM.
The Zex ignition trailer highlights at least one thing I dislike for series...introducing characters but giving them no voice clips, why Hyped for it anyway.
I'm probably not going to watch, at least while it airs. It adapts a card fighting game, things like that usually are not great. I'm watching at least six (maybe more) two cour series this fall, and might be a little pickier than usual this winter. If I'm not careful I could end up with 25 - 30 series this winter. My list so far:
If PV's look good I will also try:
- Gin no Saiji 2
- Space Dandy
- Chuunibyou 2
- Tonari no Seki-kun
- Toaru Hikuushi e no Koiuta
I assume there are still more announcements coming. If I watch all of these shows, and add the known two cour shows I am already watching, that's 17 shows. I'm watching 19 shows this season. I'm going to skip shows I am not convinced about, unless I hear a lot of good things around the internet. That happens to me every season though. I always drop a couple of shows I intended to watch, but add a few shows I had not planned on watching.
- Sakura Trick
- Inari, Konkon, Koi Iroha.
I'm rooting for a crappy winter. Summer and fall have both been really good, I have not had much time to catch up on completed shows

Only winter anime I have down for me:
- Zex Ignition
And then all the continuing stuff, looks like a pretty weak season for me. Will watch Bushiroad as well.
Toonami has announced that they will be airing new episodes of Space Dandy in the US before they air in Japan. Space Dandy will air at 11:30PM EST starting in January, date unspecified. That also means the Toonami Block will be starting thirty minutes earlier, beginning in January.
Thats shocking news, I wonder what people will go with, the sub on funimations site and etc or the dub airing. In any event, I wish they had a dub trailer for it so we could know what it sounds like. Im cautiously optimistic though I dont know if I will be watching or not. Been disappointed with the directors previous offerings (well except Kids on the Slope but that got a bit dull after it lasted way too long).
Masahiko Minami's interview
Very interesting. At least we know Space Dandy is not for fujoshis. I am looking forward to this.

Im surprised there are all these anime being announced and Im still at the same only three anime to watch.
I hope nisekoi pv is coming rather soon.
Witchcraft Works does not look that good. The manga never really interested me either. I might check it out anyway, depending on how much else I am watching. I've been wrong before.
Nisekoi's preview will probably premier during the Jump Super Anime Tour. It should be out sometime before the tour ends on November 24.

New Bushi Road PV
Bushi Road will be a three hour special airing from 7pm - 10pm on New Year's Eve.
---------- Post added at 12:42 PM ---------- Previous post was at 12:30 PM ----------
Seikai Seifuku ~ Bouryaku no Zvezda is confirmed to air in January. Okamura Tensai (Darker Than Black, Wolf's Rain) is directing, and wrote the anime original script, at A-1 Pictures. Kino no Tabi illustrator Kuroboshi Kouhaku contributed original character designs.
Bushiroad looks incredible but Im sad its just three or so hours. WOuld have been a phenomenal series looking at the character design of the lead alone.
I'm not optimistic about Bushi Road. It's an online card game tie in by Bandai and Bushiroad. Those type of things are rarely any good. I'm very excited about Seikai Seifuku. There's a PV up on Youtube, sadly it's blocked in the US.
