Nice. But I knew they were going to get this the moment I heard they were going to simulcast it.

Uhh…but didn't they already do this a la the "Funico" deal? Or was that just a streaming agreement with the option to do a physical release?

Cool, think this was a good pickup for them. I really liked it myself.

This may be the only "booby show" that I can tolerate buying from Funimation. This show was annoying a lot of times, but it was still freak'n hilarious in many parts of it also. I'm not sure if I'll get this yet.

It's good to finally see some good news come from FUNimation. After all this talk of them dropping titles and suing people, I was starting to get depressed.

Same here. Not that I mind the excess of boobs (or the variety of subtle and blatant upskirt shots), but it was pretty boring at times. It certainly isn't a must-buy for me. Far from it. Iceberg-paced story development, weak /dull/boring/spineless male protagonist of a harem (like the hundreds before him), excessive pool/beach episodes really ruined this show for me. On the flipside, Yozora and Sena's squabbles were really entertaining. Liked the art. And of course, Rika was pretty funny, too.

Chances of me buying this: 40%.

Boobies for the win for Funimation.

Is "I don't have many friends, but most of them have boobs" too unlikely a tagline?

Besides, seriously, Kodaka isn't dull/spineless.
He's just gay.

Okay, my guesses:

Kodaka, I would like Chris Patton to play the character, but Funimation might give the role to a younger blood, maybe even Aaron Dismuke. Todd Haberkon is definitely out; too high pitch.
Yozora will probably be played by Luci Christian, knowing Funimation. If not, somewhere between Brittney Karbowski (Angel Beats) and Caitlin Glass (Ouran High).
Sena, I can't guarantee Laura Bailey to take the role, so I'd probably guess Alexis Tipton IF she implements her role in GaiRei. Monica Rial might have the range too.
Yukimura, as hilarious as it would be to hear Greg Ayres take this role, I have to give it to Maxey Whitehead who's good at playing this character.

I'm not sure of the rest, but otherwise, take your bets.

I didn't realize people hated on Kodaka. He's pretty cool for a harem protagonist. In that he's not sexually harassing them or slobbering over them.

Kinda obvious that he's not going to date any of them, because the source material is ongoing, but hey.

This will probably be a limited quantity release (like Lyrical Nanoha or the Ouran High School Host Club BD). I bet it will run out of stock after a month and get discontinued. It's a very niche series.

*shrugs* Cool then. Clearly, outside of what's already been licensed, the female anime fans really shouldn't be expecting much from you guys for the next year or so, huh?

I'll go hang out with NIS then. Thanks.
