The editing made it pretty tough to keep any interest in this show. I made it to about the half-way mark before deciding that it didn't improve like I hoped, and dropped it.

I found the first third of the show very entertaining and actually exciting. Things started to go downhill in the second half, and spoiler[the death of Touko] was the nail in the coffin for me.

But there is one positive thing about this disc release of Taboo Tattoo. CR-Funi doing a dub for this bad show that not many people care about suggests to me that Crunchyroll wants to have dubs in all the shows they release on disc with Funimation. I hope Amanchu!, This Art Club Has a Problem! and Laid-Back Camp get disc releases with dubs.

Kinda of unfortunate that this was Christopher Bevins's swan song before heading to CA. But hey, at least he had fun with it

I would like to see "Twin Star Exorcists" get an update of when that is getting a release here. Be it an L.A. or Funi dub, I just want to watch that series again without having to read a show.

The editing in the series is a disaster, especially in the first episode. There are all kinds of sudden jumps, gaps that lack connecting scenes, and a general lack of consistent flow.


My same issue especially in episode 1, but the action scenes were cool.

Quote:
The series also wants to play up its sex appeal without going full-bore on fanservice which results in an array of halfhearted cheesecake scenes, mostly centered around Toko's chest, the improbably revealing apparel of one American agent, and Princess Arya's propensity for sexual harassing other women


That was awesome, especially the HLA scenes.

Quote:
Opener “Belief” by May'n is the strongest of the soundtrack, while closer “Egoistic Emotion” is unremarkable.


It was great hearing May'n again. She made another awesome song. ED song was good.
