Wait, what?

What about Cosprayers and Smash Hit?

Also these shows are terrible.

m.o.e. shows are pretty much the epitome of awful dreck. I'm surprised Ultimate Girls never got picked up. You could at least market that as fanservice nonsense.

Yeah, Ultimate Girls was fun, in a really, really sleazy sort of way.

It better be the uncensored version, unlike the ungrateful Papillon Rose they acquired. :/

I'm just surprised that they cared to license a show from 2004. Though given the age on Cluster Edge, Irohanihoheto, and possibly Michiko to Hatchin, I guess anything is possible now.

*prays for stateside releases of Akahori Gedou Hour Rabuge and TOKYO TRIBE2, plus a relicense of IGPX*

Michiko stands out, it was one that should have been licensed in 2009 and released in 2010.

This show was awful. There has got to be better stuff out there that's waiting for a license.

Also a bit weird that they'd license this one and not the first two (not that it matters much since they're all awful).

Great opening and ending theme, terrible show. That being said. It has some pretty appealing fanservice, so I'll probably buy it just for nostalgia. This was the first show I ever streamed, albeit raw, just for the fanservice value. I'm actually pretty excited since later on, if I recall correctly, I only got to watch half of the series subbed in. English and the other half subbed in Portuguese.

Haven't seen it. Don't know anything about it. Don't plan to buy it.

Yeah, wait a minute, now I remember this one...

It was the third in the "so terrible the show is actually a meta-joke about creating a poor quality anime" series with cosprayers and smash hit!...

Without the initial 2 shows the point is totally lost, right? It'll just be a single terrible anime and the whole context of it being terrible semi-on-purpose will be gone...

I don't get it. If Sentai is willing to license a bunch of old stuff, why not get the old stuff that was actually good anime but glanced over? I don't at all think this has a chance of selling better than something like Kaiba or Basquash, both of which bombed in Japan and I cannot imagine they're fetching high asking prices. Licensing new shows is something entirely different, but why did through the bottom of the barrel when something better likely costs the exact same to license?
