Extremely pissed this didn't get a dub. I mean, come on - the original AUDIO DRAMA got a dub using FUNIMATION ACTORS!

Honestly, I think I'm always going to remember this show as "the one got that canceled in the UK because only two people preordered it."

These are generally enjoyable with the major fly in the ointment coming towards the end, when the first question asked of Haruka's VA, Shunya Marue, is whether or not he's gay because he apparently sits too close to others. This opens the door for some uncomfortable discussions about being “normal” and visiting gay bars. Fortunately, these segments are easily skipped and make no difference to the actual anime.


That makes me sad. Can I ask, was it just this one actor that was making homophobic remarks or were there more of them involved?

^It was most of them, although Ryo Horikawa, who is markedly older than the rest, mostly refrained.

tbh, I felt the gay question was the only highlight of what was otherwise a waste of two hours and eight bucks. It sounded to me like the other panelists were prompting an answer more out of jest than earnest. If I remember correctly, even the VA in question was laughing it off as the most out-of-nowhere inquiry on planet earth which, for me, only made it all the funnier.
