The mangaka drew a message to younger fans about social distancing
The Promised Neverland manga artist Posuka Demizu drew an image in support of the Stay Home campaign, which encourages people to self-isolate in order to curb the spread of COVID-19. The image was posted on The Promised Neverland's official Twitter account last Thursday, and shows the three protagonists wearing masks.

Taka: I thought they added the original Love Hina series. I was looking forward to see one of the "harem" anime series that started it all.

Old Man Dream: The Love Hina TV anime's been out of print for a while now, as Funimation last held the license for it and their last release for it was way back in 2011. You're probably thinking of the Love Hina Again OVA that Discotek license rescued that adapts the...

Old Man Dream: ...manga's later volumes around Volumes 11 and 12, if I recall.
Feb 26, 2021 13:46:53 GMT
Old Man Dream: As for "starting it all", there have been harem titles that came before Love Hina; most notable coming to mind being Tenchi Muyo, Saber Marionette, and Ah My Goddess.
Feb 26, 2021 13:53:44 GMT
Taka: Oh Tenchi Muyo is a lot older than Love Hina. Thanks Dream for correcting me. I still haven't got to watching Ah My Goddess and Saber Marionette.

Caffeinated Master Menos: Seen some of Tenchi Muyo and haven't seen the others. Love Hina was honestly extremely dumb, but I had the most fun with Mutsumi for being cute as sin, so that was a plus out of that ordeal.

Old Man Dream: Boil things down, not as fond of Love Hina as I was when I was first starting my anime fandom years ago. Keitaro being a total Butt Monkey and the majority of the girls making him their punching bag just frustrates me with the series nowadays.

Old Man Dream: Just wrapped up Black Lagoon. Will be trying to get a review together for it today and have it up on here sometime tonight.
Feb 27, 2021 21:31:59 GMT
Old Man Dream: I've decided that Jin-Roh: The Wolf Brigade will be my next anime to watch for my poll. A nice break between Black Lagoon and Outlaw Star (my last title for my rewatching spree) with the film being a shorter watch.

Taka: Someone will enjoy that.
