I wonder if this license has anything to do with this and the other Kadokawa shows being pulled from Crunchyroll.

I would say most likely not. Kadokowa shows always have a shorter life span on CR than other license holders. Plus, Sentai uses them for simulcasts, so I don't think they would have it pulled. They've never pulled any other shows from them.

However, I suppose it's possible that CR had all the rights to the show, and Sentai could only acquire it once their contract had lapsed. I don't believe Kadokowa has ever done that with CR though.

After the Free! situation has come to light, I'm thinking it's entirely possible the Kadokawa/CR deal gave them the full rights.

Which would also explain why Sentai hasn't announced Level 2 yet as well, since they were probably waiting for the SCD rights to become available.

This could turn out to be interesting [and hilarious]. Cool

...darn. Crying or Very sad

This show seems to be right in Sentai's wheelhouse. Looking forward to it.

I am so happy. This show was excellent and I'm glad it's finally getting recognition. Easily one of my favorite comedies ever. Thank you Sentai, you're doing God's work.

This was a really fun show. Probably not a must-buy series, but

A) The second season is on my to-do list,
B) I would be willing to revisit a dub of Season 1.

Also, Sentai waited too long. The title can never be anything but Seitokai no Ichizon. It's fun to say!

As much as this series really swam in a pool of unoriginal ideas, it was actually fun too watch. The characters were just strange enough and bounced off each other well and it worked.

Although I admit, I might be biased because I think the character designs are freakishly cute.

This type of show is very common and this one was very average IMO. Not terrible just not very good either. Surprised it's been licensed at all honestly.
