I always felt that Ben-To was a bit of a hidden gem that never got a proper US release. Glad to see it's at least getting a little recognition although

There is a little cheesecake in this series, and one or two scenes that are more blatant, but I would hardly call this an "ecchi" title and barely qualifies for the "harem" and "fanservice" themes currently attached to its encyclopedia page.

Don't know about the others, but Robotics;Notes is being released in less than 2 weeks. At least part 1 is.


You are right about Robotics, my bad.

I think it's still a little too soon to rule out some of those like Date a Live and Code Breaker, and they are all simulcasts. None of them are series FUNi licensed to stream well after they finished airing.

Streamers will like what Funimation is doing, but this does not bode well for a physical release. Not saying it won't happen, someday.....

These are a few of the shows that are streaming, but have yet to have a physical announcement. There are others, but I didn't list most of the shows from within the past few months like Blaz Blue.

All of those were acquired as simulcasts, which Ben-to clearly is not.

BTW, the last C = Curious
