      • I don’t know about Berserk, but D Grayman was decidedly unfinished. I am just more surprised because they aired so long ago that all hopes of a second season or another adaptation are nearly nil.

      • I am surprised as you are. After all these years, they decided to do this anime. Kinda makes you wonder if 2016 is going to be doing this with other anime.

      • I agree. If it’s true, then we can assume that 2016 will focus on bringing back older anime. Who knows, it may stop people from saying “where is season 2” haha.

      • Haha exactly, or it may be a downer on those who keep arguing its impossible for certain series to have a second season simply because they haven’t announced it for some time xD

      • Haha exactly, though I think it’s likely because the manga for both still attracts a large market. I am hoping for a continuation since the anime adaptation isn’t that old so there really is no need for a reboot xD

      • True and I agree. I haven’t seen the anime but judging by the picture, it looks like the anime will continue on to the manga. I wonder how many fans are still out there ever since the anime ended a while back.

      • Haha I watched the anime and I won’t consider myself a fan, but it’s something I may try out when it comes out. After all it’s supposed to have better animation haha.

      • It looks impressive. It looks like a good Shonen anime. Personally, my first impressive on the main character looks like Edward Elric from Fullmetal Alchemist.

      • Ah yes, they are of the same age. Its definitely is good solid long-running shounen, even though it may start slow. Their characters aren’t really the same though, the MC here is more mild-mannered than Edward Elric.

      • He does look more mannered. At least with this recent news, we can assume that they will draw in some new people and get the much needed attention. 2016 is going to be big.

      • Yeah I am expecting 2016 be better than 2015. But I bet this is just the surface of the news,
        we haven’t gone deep into what to expect for the new year.
