Aku no Hana! Gekidan Takumi!! Yumemachi!!! What an amazing combination. I must go.
I feel like this will work so much better than the anime!
Hey, hey, what about the second season of the anime?!
I really want them to do a proper anime adaptation…
What are you talking about? There was no anime adaptation.
I know a lot of people were upset about the anime adaptation because of the animation style… But I think we can anticipate a lot from this!
H..ana… gA…. sai….ta YO…..
