Well, not like they have to dub much. About two full anime's episode worth maybe.

As an aside, this show was hilarious. Sabat as narrator will be great.

Japanese studios are getting soft. In the old days this would have been full nip.

I heard Gainax had an unwritten rule, that every show must have at least one nipple. In the case of Gurren Lagann they forgot and put it into the second movie. I'm surprised that a show like this didn't have one.

It just depends on the show nowadays. The anime of Valkyrie Drive from late last year certainly proved that Japan can still #freethenipple, for one.

In the home video release, perhaps. (Or, notably, in the masked off part of the widescreen for Urusei Yatsura: Beautiful Dreamer, revealed in the open matter 4:3 release.) Stuff on air has long limited the nipple, but been changed for home video. (Take Maze (TV) for instance.)

Now it's true that a lot of things that would have been OVA are now short late night TV series, so that can mean fewer nipples. It really would be appropriate for the sexy edition here to have a nipple or two.

NOT QUITE! IF he goes overboard in the narration like what he did in the Negima?! series, that WILL really be hard to watch.

though if its anything like the first two seasons of Queens Blade, then the series should do ok in the dub. though the casting is rather strange. you would think they would use cast that is custom to the ecchi/fanservice series like this,though this casting is very curious. then again, after the wonders they did with Sora no Otoshimono , Senran Kaguya , Sekirei, and especially Maken-Ki season 2 & DxD season 3 after freeman shot himself in the foot , hearing this cast will be quite interesting if nothing else.

There was a bonus episode bundled with the initial Japanese BD release last year that went there - actually it went beyond there and into full-fledged softcore yuri territory. I doubt that episode's ever going to get dubbed, though.

SO tired of Sabat being forced into EVERY single dub.

^I like Chris Sabat. I think that he is a good actor with a good voice.
There no doubt are parts that are not right for him, but I have not heard him do one yet.
Also, I have a lot of Funimation dubs that he is not in.

Having said that I must admit that I have not heard any dubs from the past year or two, due to not buying much.
(Actually I have seen Lord Marksman and Vanadis and Soul Eater Not! but I borrowed them from the library. Mr. Sabat does not seem to be in either of them Wink)

I hope to get Bikini Warriors but I am afraid that there are other things that I want first. But I am interested in it, which is why I read threads such as this.
