You know I’m glad I saw this video because if there’s one anime you can’t see and one you can, I’m glad I got the winner in their view. Very interesting turn of events there.

So I finally got around to watching Ep. 01

It’s not as bad as the ANN Fall 2015 Preview Guide made it out to be. Though I can definitely see the gripes and where they’re coming from.

At the moment, it’s just kinda in the “I’m not sure what to think” category for me. It wasn’t really bad, it’s just kind of fair to middling. I’ll keep watching it like I do with most Sentai stuff, but I’m not really expecting much from it or to be wowed all that much.

I’m curious to know if Anime Network will get this, or if the exclusive contract won’t allow them to get it.

I’m betting it’s a timed exclusive, so probably after X amount of time it will be on TAN.
