I still can't get over the fact that the main leads last name is Grill.

.....Does that make him Best Grill? Razz

That is one of the singularly-worst plot synopses I have ever read.

Sometimes Sentai will dub 4 epi. then release them all at once wait a month and do the same until all 12 epi. have been dubbed. Wish Netflix did this with their Eng. dubs.

Please, someone tell me that PGatPT isn't popular enough to actually deserve a dub and "special" second streaming gig instead of Hidive just being desperate for content. Maybe there are a couple of guys out there that think reliving the terror/horror of being caught doing sexually forbidden things again and again fun/funny but I'd bet +99% of anyone else would actively avoid watching this...

Sex sells. I am not the biggest fan of titty shows, but I will watch them if they have solid visuals and English dubs. Even if some people hate it, Sentai/HIDIVE are smart for dubbing ecchi anime.

I think they've opted for that over doing it weekly. It ends up working out to the same amount of time as when they tried weekly dubs so I don't mind. I'm actually surprised to see this, though. COVID threw a giant wrench into dubbing, so I wasn't expecting this.

Given how Sentai has a lower budget than Funi, I think this binge-cast approach is a great idea. You give the fans some epi. to watch and that can be discussed while also working on the next batch.
