Comment on Minami-ke “4th” Season Announced by Sasazuka:

It’d be lovely if Studio Daume could return to the franchise, but it seems that most of their talent has fled elsewhere. Daume hasn’t really done anything notable since the two ICHIGO MASHIMARO OVA series or whatever that SHIKI thing is.

  • Top 30 Anime of Summer 2014:
    At least SPACE DANDY is in the top 20, which is, to be hpnest, a ranking higher than I expected for a Japanese list. (If we’re talking American/western viewers, SPACE DANDY would almost certainly rank in the top 3 summer 2014 anime.)
