Funimation needs to try a little quality control. It's becoming like ADV was.

New Funi license = tits. I couldn't care less about this. By the time Funimation gets around to releasing it everyone will have forgotten about it anyways Laughing .

lol I wonder if the actors are going to make new aliases again in fear of being officially attached to a show that displayed a teen's penis.

I expect the streams to be heavily censored.

I've been wondering when they would actually pick up the license. Not that I care much for the show anyways.

Boobs sell. Master of the Martial Hearts is getting an Anime Classic re-release which means it sold quite well for Funi. So, I can't really fault them for going after show that could sell well for them.

Damnit, Funi. You used to be decent. What ever happened to a little QUALITY control? Expecting heavy censoring.

Call me when Funimation license something decent, like say, Aquarion Evol.

EDIT: Forget to put my reasoning. It's only two episodes in.

I like how when funimation licenses a fanservice show, everyone rolls there eyes, but when Sentai picked up a loli show just a few days ago, everyone praised them and say how funimation should learn from their quick rushed out licenses Rolling Eyes

Not to say I look forward to this show, nor that I think Funi is perfect, just sayin

At least Funimation knows their target audience, I'll give them that. Frankly, I don't blame them for licensing this, if this sells, which I know it will, good for them.

We've lost several anime companies in the last several years and even though I am not personally interested in this title, I do give Funimation props for knowing their target audience.

Could be worse though, let's face it, this is hardly as bad as some of the anime licensed in the past.

As Alvin The Chipmunk said, "Don't hate the player, hate the game."

Funimation knows this well sell very well.

wow, out of all the titles this season this is the one Funi decided to license, i mean seriously, i watched the first episode thinking it would be a top-class ecchi show based on the few manga chapters i read (a top-class ecchi show is still poor by all accounts, probably no more than an average compared to other series) and it failed so badly i couldn't bring myself to watch a second episode

i find it hard to believe that they went for this as their first choice license this season, AnoNatsu, BSP, Brave10, Inu x Boku SS, Another, PapaKoto and Amagami SS+ would all have been better choices, and announcing it this late after pretty much all those titles have been snapped up suggests this was a last ditch effort to get something rather than it being their premier license for the season

Well, people'll probably buy it. I just hope that they use the money to license something cool, or at least to buy Lance Heiskell a really nice hat.

I would too, but then I'd feel compelled to send restitution and letters apologizing for the existence of the penis to the actresses.

I don't think there is anything cool that they coud license and it would still make money (not counting additionally licensing things like Fairy Tail and One Piece).
