200k likes, 150k retweets in 30 minutes... Demon Slayer's popularity is insane!

Not my favourite arc personally but I'm sure some ufotable magic will make it a lot better.

Hopefully autumn, so there's plenty of time for cinemas to open again, so we can watch the film.
Otherwise it'll have to be experienced on the small screen one way or another!

Actually might be advantageous for once.
Could be advantageous but with season one streaming on everything and it being Aniplex (Sony/Funi/Crunchy) I could only see it being a timed exclusive say like a week before crunchy (don't think it'll show on Funi until the dub)

The cinema release won’t be delayed till Autumn no way. I think it will be June if lucky and then flop due to competition.
I do wonder how AL feel about that cinema slate they announced last year.

I’m expecting Fall, maybe Summer if lucky. I expect it to be one cour if it’s adapting one arc. (And not the final one which is very long so I’ve been told)
We do need the film before whenever it airs, I assume if cinemas fail AoA will have it on BD long before manga release a crapper release.

Looks amazing! Seems to have a little bit of all his mashed up, but mostly Summer Wars with a hint of The Boy and the Beast.
titled Belle
Interesting, the last shot does remind me of Beauty and the Beast and the MC in that is called Belle IIRC.
The Japanese title "Ryū to Sobakasu no Hime" translates as Dragon and Freckle Princess according to Google Translate.

Yep, her name is Belle, French for Beauty :) (source: I love the Disney 1991 movie and have recently been watching numerous youtube videos analyzing it, I also liked the Jean Cocteau version though I like his Orphee more personally) :)

The trailer looks pretty, nice music also, hopefully the movie will be as magical as the short preview XP

Yeah, only three shows out of that list of winners I would even bother to watch, Re:Zero (which I actually have only seen 3 episodes of, still waiting for my AL CE to arrive), Tower of God, and Fruits Basket. Maybe Tonikawa, but I haven't seen any of that one yet. I am definitely not a mainstream guy - don't care for any of that stuff.

I feel like you would enjoy Beastars but I could be wrong.

Yeah, no, I watched a few minutes of that, and it did not appeal to me at all. I just wasn't into watching all the weird animal characters. Even Fruit's Basket with all the Zodiac animal beings is not really that high on my list.
