According to their press releases, Sentai Filmworks has officially announced their licenses of the TV anime Ro-Kyu-Bu! and Kamisama no Memochou.

Sentai Filmworks will begin releasing the 12 episodes of Ro-Kyu-Bu! digitally as "Ro-Kyu-Bu ~ Fast Break!" though The Anime Network on July 27th. The 12 episodes of Kamisama no Memochou will be release digitally as "Heaven's Memo Pad" also through The Anime Network starting July 31st. Both series will have a home video release next year, with Ro-Kyu-Bu! confirmed to be on English subtitled DVD.

These acquisitions were posted a day after Sentai's Ikoku Meiro no Croisée licensing announcement, but they were expected after The Anime Network revealed their simulcasts for the same three series.

"DVD Ro-Kyu-Bu" better be code for "uncensored Ro-Kyu-Bu".


There isn't that much fanservice in it to warrant an uncensored release.


There isn't much fan-service YET.
Also, sunflowers.

So Kamisama no Memochou is only 12 episodes?
JC Staff are doing Shana Final, Bakuman season 2 and Kimi to Boku in the fall.

I think it would have been a bit much for J.C staff to work on 4 anime at the same time, which would be what they would be doing if they continued Memochou past the 12-episode mark.

It will probably get a second season if it sells well.

So Lolicon is still officially legal in America.

I certainly hope it remains that way. Someone on Crunchyroll was complaining about them showing R-15, I sort of got annoyed by that.
