Sentai sure is on a licensing spree, and while I appreciate them acquiring more titles, this seems rather out of the blue. Considering the content of both titles added with the fact that they're both about 30 minutes each, it's also puzzling as to why they aren't packaged together, similar to how they released Coffee Samurai and Hoshizora Kiseki.

Glad to see Sentai is still in business. While they are at it, lets see season 2 of High School of the Dead. - anime | manga | reviews

Norageki! Seems interesting to me, though sentai sure has been licensing a lot at a time. But it's nice for there to be other companies besides Funi, especially after what happened to ADV. I might just by Norageki!

Yet again, the foolish companies continue to use cheap-to-acquire licenses in the hopes to get quick money.

Like bad side dishes that some people bring to parties; people will eat them regardless, because there isn't anything better. I feel sorry for those quality-deprived people who actually support the market for these craps shows.

Bah. Its always been about the money. These might be side projects until they get the licenses to the shows that people actually watch and care about. If they are even DOING that, which with the rate things are going these days, I seriously doubt.

Will buy them if they are not too expensive. Cause I won't buy it if its above $40 for each DVD cause that is too much for one episode unless they package them together, but I can't see myself buying any time soon if its still over $30 for both.

I'm interested to know just how much they actually pay to license things like these... Oh well, good luck to you Sentai.

On the other hand I suppose it's nice to see that animes other than the most mainstream/popular ones do get licensed as well.

I have yet to see Norageki but I'm glad they're dubbing underrated anime. Plus, I tend to think Sentai is mostly dubbing moe, fan service, and ecchi anime. I really hope they broaden their genre for dubbing anime. (And I have yet to wait for them to dub Maid-sama and Kobato)
And I think they won't be too expensive. Both series are only one episode.

I'm really happy with the cast, but I agree sentai always have short series/OVAs. the great thing is well, Vic Mignogna is playing the lead!! I DID NOT expect him to be in Sentai's shows. anyway I do have to thank sentai for bringing unpopular but great anime to the US.
