    Definitely gonna check this out, if only to see if they will be able to do DAT TONGUE justice. Also I do hope Monobears VA is the same as in the game. NO reason there shouldn’t be maybe, but that particular actor had apparently been gone for a really long time until they got the role as Monobear, so you never know.

      It was confirmed some time ago that the anime will have the same cast. That includes MonoDoraemon, upupupu~

        Then all is well and just once more :)

  • I’m super (high school level) excited for this! I’m glad it’ll be during the summer. I can never keep up with any anime any other time of the year…

    So my comment was completely deleted without any notification wich I find rather sad but oh well…

    anyway hope the anime adaptation keeps the bizarre yet weird atmosphere of the game.
