Should I be happy about this fast reaction from Sentai Filmworks?

Since Funimation is suing Sentai for $8 Million, DON'T expect to see this
or ANY recently licensed animes by Sentai to be released anytime soon.....

If I like this series enough I'll buy it since its getting a dub. Cause anything Sentai releases in BD gets one.

I'm loving Sentai so much especially since they got Ef they are on a roll with both subbed and dubbed releases, but I'm disappointed they didn't get Natsume Yuujinchou too instead of those stupid faggots NIS getting it. >_>

I've had this one on my plan to watch and rated as a 10 for the past year at least.

Will watch though didnt think it would be licensed. I guess 12 episodes and a dub for it cant be that much of a risk.

The press release says it will be 26 episodes. I don't know if we can trust that part as 100% accurate, but if they licensed it they should know how much they licensed.


Yeah, this and Listen to me Girls have been confirmed as the two 2 cour animes this season (not counting one or two that are split cour)
Actually Papa no Iukoto wo Kikinasai hasn't been confirmed for 2 cours. Last time I checked it was listed as 26 episodes, but the same source also said that it was only scheduled to air until March. It could be 26 12 minute episodes airing back to back, it could be a split-cour series, or the source might even be wrong altogether, who knows?

But on topic, yes Mouretsu has been confirmed to be 26 episodes for awhile now.

Not saying that Sentai should do it, but...

...C³ license where? C'mon guys its Silver Link.

FUNimation already has their hands on that, at least for streaming rights. They simulcasted it (though they started a bit late).

Thats shocking, unless they just stealthily revealed the anime will get a second season this year.

I'm shocked that we in Finland can watch this on Crunchyroll even though Sentai licensed this... I am happy. Funimation should take off their "red-white and blue" glasses and take notes xD

Wait, they're not looking for one piece now?

Whoever decides to rip this better add in "Ye Olde Englishe" and substitute Alestorm songs for the OP.

I took the liberty of fixing the preview for superior viewing so that you don't have to listen to the inferior song that is played during it.

This is the manliest thing ever created.
And it fits so well. Why?

Don't know if I'm that interested, though...
