So how exactly is Ika-chan going to suit Erina-sama lol
Ah man, so the Soma special is going to be crap too
Kanemoto can't play Erina-sama, she doesn't do princess voices
Congratulations on a successful invasion, Ika-chan!
This is never gonna work
Erina-sama.... She's going to turn into a totally different person... I don't think I can watch this.
You never know, Kanemoto could make a really great Erina! Something must have happened for Taneda to need to be replaced, we should support them!
