Yep, there was all of one panel about making sure there's a "heroine."
I think it's time to check in with our metatextual counterparts from the Bakuman universe...
<<Wow, so the Crow anime is finally ending. I'm a little sad, but given how freaking awesome the final volumes of the manga were, it's going to be a really satisfying conclusion. And besides, there's still The Movie
side stories, those will probably go another year or two like the Dragonball ones did. (The rumor about a second crossover with the Natural + characters sounds intriguing.)
<<And instead of jumping straight into a Zombie*Gun anime, we're getting Reversi. Can't say it's too much of a shock; If Reversi keeps up the pace in the manga like it has been, it will make a nice limited-run series so that when Zombie*Gun does
start its anime, it will have that extra six months to a year to build story so less filler will be needed.
<<Let the casting speculation begin—though I kind of pity the actress who gets stuck with Distressed-chan
. Sure, she's the main female character, but she's not exactly a feminist icon.
<<Perfect Crime Party had a slightly better female lead, but I suppose the Moral Guardians
still aren't thrilled about junior high kids who commit "crimes" for fun, and are blocking an anime for that.>>
