.....Well that's one more series I won't ever bother watching. Mad


Figures... One of the VERY few shows this season that I was actually somewhat interested in, and now it's already ruined.

Well, well, is NIS America, of all people, stepping up to plate with Bandai's recent bow? Didn't think they would license a show pre-debut (a gamble I think too many distributors are beginning to make)…

Surprise, surprise, NISA is putting on their big boy pants and showing that they're dedicated to distribution in NA, not just cherry picking random fan favorite titles. And it's a title that's being streamed, always a big gamble, I like this.

This doesn't seem to be the type of show Bandai would license.

I hope the show is good and that it does well for NIS. I enjoy most of their license choices...

How is it ruined? You can still watch it streaming on Crunchyroll.

I meant in terms of there being another presence on the R1 scene licensing anime in general.

I think companies have been jumping the gun lately, but I think NIS probably got a good deal on it and wanted to branch out a bit into a title that was more for the mainstream anime fan. if this is the property or not though is a good question. I would like it if they or funi would pick up gosick since bandai dropped it.

True, but now the hopes for a bilingual release are slim-to-none.

Believe it or not, there ARE people in this world who prefer to WATCH their TV, not READ it.

Whoa! First Sentai and now NIS is jumping on the "license stuff before they air" train? Hmmm...nice that NIS is branching out a bit.

I really hope this move of pre-debut licensing isn't the start of a new bubble. I can understand the need for distributors need to sell titles, but it becomes a little disconcerting when you have so many essentially blind-buying something that may or may not turn out to be good.

This is an odd choice for NISA.

NISA is willing to pull a risky move like this, but they still don't want to put the resources into actually dubbing their series. Ummm?

An interesting choice for NISA, especially considering its the only action-oriented show this season.
