Nice to see more animated content, but I hope we can see another season. Apparently the first season only covers ~26 chapters and it will finish with just over 200

Wait....

spoiler[So you are telling me after all those build-up and character development, we didn't even deserve a harem ending, or at least open-ending?

Oh my, I am glad I hold off the last 20 chapters. No harem ending doesn't make a fanservice show automatically terrible, but Yuuna is a weird case that certainly has the luxury to go that route yet ultimately choose not to, even with all those foreshadowing.]

I've noticed Aniplex hasn't had any plans to release the uncensored BDs in the US. All their other shows around the time gets release or is releasing, but not this. Nor are there any plans for Interspecies Reviewers' BD

Not quite all of them. Slow Start, Today's Menu for the Emiya Family, Persona 5, and DAKAICHI all from 2018 haven't gotten home video releases, either. Also Hell Girl 4 and Saekano Flat from 2017.
And about Interspecies, Aniplex had nothing to do with that.

well Aniplex / Sony is the international licenser of Interspecies reviewer, so AnimeLab, Wakanim, Funimation are all under the same umbrella now that Sony has merged all their separate divisions together as announced a while back

Have any of these been released in R2?

Interspecies Reviewers seems a bit to early to hear anything anyway *shrug*

Not quite.

spoiler[Multiple timelines confirmed, pretty much all girls get more than one route, it's just that yuna gets the "canon one" , aka the good/true end that actualyl has them defeating the big bad evil, while the other routes completely avoid the problem]

Which reminded me that HG4 and Saekano Flat were both part of the ill-fated Anime Strike platform, and that got me curious about the Blu-Ray releases of shows that ended up there. From what I found, I'm wondering if it might be a rights thing. Aniplex had eight shows that ended up on Anime Strike. The streaming rights to four of them were Amazon-exclusive (Inuyashiki, Re:Creators, Saekano Flat, and Altair: A Record of Battles), and none of those have been released on US home video. Meanwhile, three of the four non-exclusive series have gotten US releases: Katsugeki Touken Ranbu, Granblue Fantasy, and Eromanga-sensei. As for Hell Girl 4, Aniplex probably doesn't think the demand is there, since they've never even bothered re-releasing any of the first three seasons after the old Funi/Sentai sets went out of print.

Among the rest of the Anime Strike lineup, Sentai has released everything that they licensed except season 2 of Umaru-chan. Pony Canyon licensed but hasn't released Welcome to the Ballroom (which was also Amazon-exclusive), and six other shows that were all Amazon-exclusive are still unlicensed for home video as far as we know.
