Gen'ichirou Abe is back.

He is the character designer for the incoming Mekaku City Actory anime by Shaft.
I expect he will also work as chief animation director.

So will it suck just like BRS?

>>101019045
Nah, this has fairly decent source material behind it. And the characters aren't all unlikeable cunts.
>>
>>101019045
No Okada.

And the anime should make the fanbase happy at least because Jin is heavily involed in the anime project.

She is the author's self-insert after all(what with all the "sudden popularity I can't handle" thing).

>>101019307
Why would they?

Actually, they should add Saber and Kiritsugu cameos just to drive the joke home.

Is Mary a cuter version of Illya?
>>
>>101019389
>Mary and Shion looking at a picture book

>>101019566
They only look alike when both in younger form.
>>
With Abe as competent character designer there is hope that the male characters doesn't end as cheap bishonen characters.
>>
>>101019776
There are only really 2 characters that can really be classified as anything close to bishie. But yeah, with Abe in charge I doubt it'll come to that.
>>
Since this is SHAFT, who is Kamiyan going to voice? Seto or Kano? Or maybe even Shintaro?

I say Kano or Shintaro. Kano more likely, someone like Ryota Ohsaka is more fitting for Shintaro

Is that some Miku?

Because SHAFT will be an ass for the next 2 weeks releasing CMs with characters whose voice actors has been revealed before (mary, konoha).

The only way to summarize KagePro is to do it in a terrible way that sounds generic like >>101023501 or spoil more or less everything.

I try to not get spoiled, but a quick google search showed me that Haruka is best boy.
>>
>>101023640
At least it's not a harem where every girl suddenly begged for MC's almighty cock.

Also, the fact that the anime follows a different time (and plot) line with the novel and manga, will keep away novel and mangafags from spoiling shit here.

Really, I thought of similar stories when I was 14, they can do better than that.

Sure, you did.

>Miyano is voicing Haruka

How is this going to work anyways?

>>101024152
Miyano can work it out, I believe it will fit.

>>101024113
Agreed.

>>101023670
Necrophilia is bad anon...

>>101023971
You haven't read the source material aren't you?
>>
>>101024539
I have, in fact.
My opinion is still the same.

I'll still watch it and probably enjoy it, but that doesn't mean that I'll ignore every single flaw it has.
No series is perfect anyway.
>>
>>101024803
You. I like you.

Abe does some really sick anatomical work, I'll be looking forward to this

I didn't expect her voice to be so kawaii uguu, I'm pretty disappointed actually, since the pitch is annoying.
Oh well.
>>
>>101025733
Well Ene is supposed to be genki AI, that kind of voice would be expected.
Now Takane on other hand..
>>
>>101025733
There was also a CM with her where Kana Asumi didn't use her genki voice.
>>
>>101026018
So ENE = nyaruko, while takane = blanc ?
>>
Why not make Miku voice all of them?

>>101024955
They have gotten a lot better, at very least, they have only outsource only one or two episodes in total in 2013.
>>
So what is Gen'ichirou Abe actually known for?
>>
>>101026867
Being one of Shaft's few animators than can actually animate.

>>101033196
Wasn't both the same scene? skydiving kiss scene?
>>
>>101033301
There are two, the one at 2:30 is from the OVA (IIRC, the whole part is 59 seconds long) and the one after that (3:20) is from the TV (139 seconds long).
>>
How big is this?
>>
>>101035924
You probably know it better by the name Kagerou Days

It didn't explode into popularity that music video got released
