Yeah, license all you want companies, your sales are gonna be shitt deep in the toilet.
No offense, I wouldn't pay the price they charge for this stuff, the only upside to the BD's is 1080p but 1080p monitors/TV's are insanely op.


WHAT!!!!

1080p TVs are actual pretty damn affordable and computers as well unless you are getting a 3DTV or PC then you'll be paying premium price. Are you trying to get a 50" or something. LG's are affordable get one of those.

I kinda figured they would get this for some reason, but I still hope they will get Kimi to Boku too.

I also figured if Sentai did get this it was going to be subbed only and it is. I'm not buying it since I doubt it would be buy worthy anyways then again the series is only 3 episodes in I might change my mind.

In before people complain that their favorite show wasn't licensed instead.

Anyway, this seems like the typical kinda show Sentai goes after, so it doesn't surprise me one bit.
You know this post got me thinking. People don't really care about if crunchy or fansubs groups doing certain anime. Maybe NOT doing certain anime, but most of the time leechers just choose a fansub group/crunchy and get it over with. Sentai can choose to license whatever anime they want to bring over outside of Japan. It's not like the DVD sales of anime outside of Japan follow a MUST SELL THIS MUCH IN A CERTAIN PERIOD model. It seems to me that Sentai is bringing a variety of anime titles over for English speakers to enjoy instead of just doing all the big hits all the time. It would be a gross misrepresentation of the medium if everything that was on western shelves were only popular megahits.

But at the same time, ADV (Sentai's predecessor) went under because it wasted too much money on crappy and unpopular titles. Sub-only releases as opposed to dubbing everything is definitely a step in the right direction, though. I just hope they're doing okay financially.

Well, I don't even live in US, so it doesn't affect me if gets licensed or not, but I wouldn't buy anyway.

Show after show this season gets licensed... pretty good job.

Well, nice that this got an adaption. I won't buy it, of course, but its been doing a nice (read okay) job so far, so I'll commend it in that respect for not falling victim to the "rapethecamerawithgobsandgobsoffanservice" bug.

Haha, I was JUST ABOUT to complain about that since all of Manglobe's anime have been licensed, all but one, and that one happens to be one of my all time favorites! But then I see the name Sentai and all my worries went away... because I hate Sentai~

I like this anime, but I probably pass on it since it not on blu-ray, dvd on an hdtv don't go together...

Yeah that's true. But it's cool that they picked this up as I like this anime though. But I probably will pass on buying this.

Pannya~ all is good~

Why Sentai, Why? it's not selling well in Japan and it's ok but not popular here either.

I'll pass on buying this, I will get the Character CDs though since I like the heroines but honestly outside of the characters it's very average and will stay that way unless sex scenes are included.

I thought the same thing, this is a show right up Sentai's alley. Not surprised in the least.
