    So does this mean that Aya Hirano is no longer getting bad publicity and she can go back to doing voice work?; seems like it since I just recently heard her in the awesome Gatchaman Crowds

    • FlareKnight

      Yeah, it does appear that she’s voicing a character in that series. So appears like there shouldn’t be any issue with her being back as Lucy when the time comes. Though I’m not really in the loop in terms of the behind the scenes stuff.

  • FlareKnight

    It’s news that obviously we were all hoping to hear. Not that I really doubted it would return, but it makes me rest easier getting that confirmation. We still don’t know when it will restart, but knowing it will gives that security.

    I still think that taking a break when you get too close to the manga is the best move. Just that without this kind of reassurance it’s a bit stressful.

  • Justin Miller

    I had seen it in the manga tucked away I was like woohooo~ and I think Setsuken has been playing Katherine!

    • setsuken

      Yeah its exciting. I’m hoping we get an announcement for the actual airdate soon. And yes, Catherine is an amazing game! I actually played it the day it came out, but only recently decided on using this avatar XD
