Zombie ☆ Gun
I quite like this prediction, and could really see it happen. It would be interesting to see if Ririka ended up getting more rave reviews for her portrayal of her character than Azuki, despite being the supporting character.Originally Posted by Knifeshade
Maybe, Sala. Gundam as a franchise is huge, but I think that it is getting a bit tired at this point, so Unicorn might not have been as large as say 00. However, it's still better than AGE. I only watched like half an episode of Unicorn. Unicorn is as big, or bigger than, a new Jump flagship, but with Zombie Gun coming from Eiji (Crow was a massive success) and Reversi coming from AM, who still were a top four mangaka for ages with PCP, those two have already surpassed any other manga in Jump, making them the new flagships of Jump. What I'm saying is that it's not like if a newbie shoots to popularity, sort of becomes a flagship, and then gets an anime, in which case, a Gundam series would definitely be bigger, but for Eiji and AM, I think that any anime that came from their work would blow Gundam out of the water in terms of popularity/largeness. Eiji and AM would probably get only the biggest seiyuus around, which apparently now includes Azuki.
I think that for Unicorn, the introduction of a less well known seiyuu was an attempt to reintroduce some life into the somewhat stagnant Gundam franchise. There's only so much you can do with UC. If you hear the voice of one of those seiyuus that you've heard so many times before, it can start to get at you, but someone new can give life to a show.
I still think its funny that Ashirogi Muto were discussing who would play their heroine for the anime when no heroine has actually been described in relation to Reversi. I know they mentioned she would be "tragic" and get "brainwashed by the hero", but since then she hasn't been mentioned. xD
The chapter was pretty heartwarming, and Kaya was hilarious! I love that Saikou mentioned both Shujin and Kaya as his best friends for life.
As for Ririka, I am pretty sure she will be the thorn on Ashirogi's side once they get an anime. How she'll get there is a mystery. I think it would be interesting if one of the main male characters calls for a female seiyuu, and she gets picked for that, but I'm not sure. xD
EDIT: I think Zombie Gun will get an anime. Reversi's plot is too linear for any anime company to take it on this early in the story. The way I see it, Zombie Gun has more franchise potential. The reason why Death Note had such a successful anime is because they could tell the whole story without fillers or an alternative ending, right? For Reversi to "surpass" Death Note, I think it'll need to do the same.

It looks like, that Mashiro and Tagaki´s new Manga get an anime-adaption. I thinkt it will be only an OVA, but it can be also a TV-Series.
I love Hattori's faces in this chapter.
Apparently they got the anime, or something happened at the last moment, I'm tired of so many things that happen in the manga, now if you want this lapse all pink, and I want to see happy ending
We got trolled badly this chapter. In summary, it's still up in the air whether it goes to Zombie Gun or Reversi.
So yeah, we're back where we started.
WHO DO YOU THINK WILL GET THE ANIME (again)?

no action would Ohba, your sleeve is tiring me ¡¡¡¡¡ XD
That was bs. Ohba's just dragging this out and having Takagi and Mashiro talk about his own personal angst with DN way too much.
Seeing how there is no female lead in Reversi that we know of I'd say Eiji. Whatever manga will get an anime that Azuki will star in has to have a proper female lead.
