    Absolutely. I really like Gungrave as well. I think the Brandon and Harry origin arc is way better than the present-day story it cuts back to, though. Anyone else find the transition between the two unintentionally kinky? It's like, "You brought him back from the dead and dressed him up as a cowboy?" o_O

    Oh well, if that's what floats your boat. ;)

    I should probably get around to watching it at some point. I've liked what I've seen of it.

    Whoops, sorry for the ever-so-mild spoiler there, dude! :oops:

    I do heartily recommend Gungrave, though.

    It's fine I haven't a clue what that the context to that quote is so I'm good. ;)

    The ending of Gungrave left me misty eyed. Beautiful depiction of friendship, I wholeheartedly recommend it!

    Tokyo Ghoul:re Anime adaption leaked : Tokyo Ghoul:re anime PV. Airs in 2018. • r/anime

    I'm real interested as to how they're going to do this given how season 2 changed the story and missed some very important plot points. Will Season 2 be ignored? Will they just faithfully adapt re expecting the viewer to have read the manga? Hmmm.

    Looks like this is the announcement that'll come with chapter 144 of Re, unless Ishida plans to announce
    A third manga, considering how the latest chapter ended
    In any case it'll be interesting to see if the anime disregards Root A's events entirely, which would make sense.

    They're going to have to ignore S2 and just faithfully adapt Re expecting us to know. I now have the problem where I'm going to have to buy the manga if I want to watch Re though, just so I know if they do make changes. >_<

    Hoping he has something planned, cannae be dealing with the manga
    Ending with Ken as a nugget, and all those loose ends with Hide/Scarecrow, Ayato and Banjou, Shuu etc... If everyone dies I'll be very disappointed.

    I'm like 90 percent sure there's going to be a part 3
    Here's Hoping Hide swoops in and saves the day, Kaneki gets something to eat grows his limbs back and saves his waifu and unborn child

    That's what I'm hoping. There's always the chance that
    the entire chapter was just in Kaneki/Furuta's head, the whole"game over"/"end credits" thing seems a bit weird. Alternatively everyone shows up to bail nugget Ken out and we get part 3-Just keep Touka and Hinami safe. There's also the theory that the Ken we see is actually Uta or a Kagune clone but those theories are pretty far reaching.

    Probably for the best, shift my hopes towards the anime adaptation not being rushed and sh*tty instead.

    Not optimistic about the transfer tbh. Seems like a massive job and if it is somehow good then it's probably gonna cost a heck of lot.

    Refuse to get excited till we know more, this is WB after all one of the greatest films ever The Dark Knight has a pretty poor Blu-ray transfer. And will have done for 10 years from next year! An entire decade!!

    Anime Limited did a nice little post about it.

    This might interest a couple folks on here. Ashita no Joe (Champion Joe) is inspiring a new anime-original TV series called Megalobox in Spring 2018.

    Funimation have apparently cancelled the home video release of Hybrid x Heart.

    Now it is based on the statement which RACS received, so it could in fact come back in 2018.
