The airing dates for Fate/Zero 2
have been announced
: it starts on April 7. And since all the big anime databases out there seem to have split the release of this second season into a distinct anime title, I have conformed to this trend and created a new entry for it, as well. The first season of Fate/Zero
had aired between October - December 2011.
Also from April 7, Fuji TV will re-air
the One Piece
series in a "high-res special edition", apparently starting with the anime's very first episode, originally from 1999. The reruns (...) Continue reading 'Checkpoint: Fate/Zero 2, One Piece HD, Precure'...
