Whoa, can't say I was expecting that to happen, it's an odd show so I didn't think anyone would license it. Although it seems like Sentai's goal these days is to license anything that holds still long enough....

Too bad about no BD ... it is a nice looking series. Anyhoo, I'm happy about this. The show didn't change my life or anything but I found a fair amount to enjoy. Like the main chick's bazooms, for example.

I'm getting really tired of these DVD-only releases by Sentai.

DVD still sells more than Blu-Ray. I myself am hoping that they will announce a BD edition also.

Sentai tend to release their dual language shows on DVD and BD, so I can only assume this is a request of the Japanese license holder.

I don't recall this show, but I'll check it out. I guess Sentai has high hopes for the show as it being released directly to dubbed dvd, skipping over the sub-only dvd, which sometimes leads to a dubbed dvd down the road.

One of these days Sentai is going to license something that I want, and that will be a good day. I know this show has its fans since I've heard chatter about it ever since it debuted on Crunchyroll. Hope it does well for them.

I guess Sentai is really trying to go bankrupt before they lose that court case against Funimation. Then they probably figure at least they wont have any money to give them lol.

But seriously, whats up with these licenses lately sentai? Who is going to buy this?


*Note* - Not saying this show is bad or anything.

Me, though very grudgingly because of the lack of blu-ray

I loved the series. Too bad CR lost the streaming license very soon afterward

I'd assume so too but it doesn't seem like a rational decision considering it completely and utterly bombed in Japan (432 avg BD copies/vol; 10 vols) and is almost 3 years old now

I don't really care at all about this show but I'm always glad to see more titles from that 07-09 dead zone licensed. It gives me hope that we might one day see some of the shows I actually want licensed.

Close... since "book" is in the title, but the real book anime that I'm waiting for is Library Wars. Crying or Very sad
