"Clever visual style"- Lost in Anime


The fudge, is this some other site or did they seriously quote Enzo?!

EDIT: Never mind, that was him, I changed the link, you can see it in the first paragraph of his series review for it...


Any who, it feels like forever since I've seen this show, I could only imagine how I'd feel about it now seeing it again, but from what I hear the dub sounds decent enough...

Funny first they talk about streaming the show and a site then boom a Dub cast with a clip. That was fast but it's nice to see this show getting a dub Cool and i like Joel McDonald's ADR work so i'm sure it will be good

Speaking of Funimation releases, does anyone know what happened to the release of The Devil is a Part-Timer!? It was listed on TRSI for pre-order but was later removed.

The English version of Ben-To looks as if it came out of nowhere! Surprised
Another show that I'm planning to watch, along with Railgun S.

Glad to see this one getting a DVD/BD release out of the gate and to also see that all the SEGA references still seem to be intact Smile

What? This trailer is so...underwhelming. Doesn't make me want to buy at all. Of course it'll be a buy, but only because I've seen the show already. But if a hadn't and just went by the trailer, than I'd be like "Nope, pass."

Yeah I agree the trailer doesn't capture the show atmosphere at all it's actually a big turn off if you haven't already seen the show.

Same here. Though I've learned that, for Funimation, when trailers are meh, the corresponding shows are generally good. Especially with Joel McDonald at the helm; Jacuzzi Splot hasn't let me down yet Laughing

Funimation did the anime world a favor by suppressing this one. I've seen it twice now and, even with the dub, I'm not sure if it is supposed to be a serious horror show or a dark comedy. It's too comedic to be serious but too "unfunny" to be a comedy. The only thing that is certain is that it isn't good.

The start of the article says Code;Breaker. Is that a typo?

I really loved Ben-To, so I'm super happy to see it get a bluray release. I'm totally picking it up.
