>_> Seriously this? What about this is marketable in the U.S? I guess COD and loli fans? Well considering how lax gun laws are in that place I guess it might work. I honestly don't see the appeal of such a show myself.

Seems to me Sentai Licenses shows that fans want, instead of mainstream shonen series like Funi picks up. imo


True. It's either action/mainstream shonen or extremely ecchi shows that Funi licenses nowdays. I too am more leaning towards what Sentai licenses.



Yeah, FUNimation has only put out only those titles nowadays although I think one of Sentai's sellers is HighSchool of the Dead. But still, at least, one anime distributor is focusing on anime that isn't always the basic fanservice bullshit and exactly has an interesting story.

Extreme irony xD

Why god, why?

I guess this going towards a more interested demographic, but now there's going to be an all new meme for COD fans having weird boners. Great.
Why not?

The only thing Upotte!! has in common with COD is that they both have guns, so I don't see your point.

What's with this "I don't like it and nobody else should have a right to do so"-attitude?
Seriously, why do people give so many fucks about things they don't like. I'm sure nobody is forced to buy it. So just ignore it. Or to say in more modern words: DEAL WITH IT!

Im honestly quite surprised this got licensed at all...such a strange (but awesome) anime

May 3, 2012 12:12 PM by Denmark-Chan

It's unbelievable. What I've been wondering is, where are they getting all this money?


Hopefully from previous titles they released.

So true.

Been seeing a lot of the "Sentai Filmworks Licenses ______" posts and I'm actually shocked because a good chunk of the animes they've been licensing aren't exactly that great. Not attacking the shows if anyone felt offended but hell it's like they are licensing every anime out there even the ones that are just bad.

Yeey~ Upotte is just great~~xD
