    I hadn't seen any news about this, but upon searching it checks out. Looks like we'll be getting another season or reboot. The internet seems to be betting on a reboot.
    I wonder where the demand for this came from? It was a fun series and one of my first some 6-7 years ago, but now the source material has been over for 12 years and there isn't really any discussion about this franchise. Is this one Japan just can't let go? Or is it one that higher ups decided to try now that it is complete like a couple of older shounen adaptations recently?
    I wonder if this could bring hope to other forgotten franchises?

    But in the meantime I'll wait for a trailer to see how this looks before I decide to just blindly watch it. Could be more fun.

    That's cause it is, there's something on the cover that indicates that it's basically gonna be like Brotherhood, where it remakes the series and adapts it in its entirety

    The real question is still why though? Was there any demand for this recently?
    There haven't been too many reboots but this is the first time that a shoujo is getting this treatment.
    Which studio do you think will be grabbing it?

    It's always been a very popular shoujo manga and perhaps this is what fans wanted. Also it being 20 years since it was first serialised MIGHT just help a little bit.

    In terms of studio, probably gonna be DEEN again.

    NO$TALGIA BABY~ when it comes to a reboot, its either we want it or we never asked for it but we are getting it anyway.


    Studio DEEN has a snowball's chance in hell on getting to work on the reboot!

    Natsuki Tayaka will be picking a different studio according the articles in my first post.

    Well here's your first key visual guys.

    Colouring and shading makes me think TROYCA is doing it.

    Oh Hocchan will definitely come back, the entire cast will return.

    I would have laughed if DEEN got it again. I forgot it was theirs actually. But they were on a roll the other year with Konosuba, Rakugo and Sakamoto but I guess they are still a studio everyone just likes to throw shit at.
    The anniversary is probably a big driving force for this reboot. Funny how that works.

    If there is an entirely new cast and staff then I don't need to feel bad that I never saw it in Japanese. This was an early anime entry into my obsession, only saw the dub. But I did enjoy it. I wonder if I'll be harder on this reboot since I have fond memories of the original?

    Go as hard as you want with the reboot. The only thing is you can only be critical of how far the first adaptation went.

    By the way the reason for the new staff and cast is because Takaya was very unhappy with the previous adaptation and she personally requested a whole new staff and cast. However for you dub lovers, no you are definitely not gonna get Laura Bailey back, you'll get Alexis Tipton as her replacement.

    I wonder if Chris Sabat(Ayame), John Burgmeier(Shigure) and Kent Williams(Hatori) will be reprising their roles or will they just recast everyone?

    I'm also curious who will voice Rin/Kureno in the english dub?

    Those are FUNi regulars right? If so it should be easier to get them back to reprise their roles. The problem with Laura Bailey is that she's far too big now for anime, however I think I remember her coming back for Maka in Soul Eater Not! so we'll wait and see. But it honestly depends if: A) FUNi actually try to get her back and B) Is Laura Bailey even emotionally interested in Tohru.

    Well it depends if Laura Bailey is down for it. Troy Baker is the same and he expressed his disappointment over not being called to reprise Yuri in the Tales of Vesperia dub

    I know this clip is only a few seconds, but I'm not liking Tohru's voice. Plus that CGI stream and the sun glare does not sit right with me. I hope this anime does not focus too much on being sad and is able to balance itself with humor. Other than that elitist crap, I'm hyped!
