      I still remember the time when I thought that their winter 2017 really meant winter and not fall 2017 :(

      I’m honestly more concerned with who will voice Al more than the CG.

      I didn’t mind that much the idea of a live action before, but now that i’m rewatching the anime i’m not so sure…I wonder if the interactions with Al will work well.
