Plot Summary: (TAN) It’s one thing to honor your ancestors and keep old traditions alive, but there IS such a thing as taking it to a ridiculous extreme. In Kawakami City, having a samurai ancestor and enormous ‘fighting spirit’ isn’t just an interesting fact, it’s a huge part of how you end up being ranked on the social totem pole. That, in turn, rolls over into the school curriculum. Fortunately, that’s something the local kids like Yamato Naoe have learned to deal with by forming into small ‘bands,’ (that’s the samurai type, NOT music.) However, while the delicate sexual balance of Yamato’s group seemed fine when there were three girls and four boys, the sudden addition of two MORE girls starts to send everything spinning out of control! Seven’s a band of samurai and nine is a riot as boys, girls and naked blades all come together in MAJIKOI ~ OH! SAMURAI GIRLS!

I’ll add the watch link when they put it up.

Since it’s only in the US and Canada makes me wonder if they did not make a deal with Sentai for digital rights. Usually when they get a series from the Japanese side they seem to get it for more then just the two areas. Plus since Sentai announced the Home Video already. Unless some company in another country got the streaming rights for the other areas.

I think it was already known about, since the PR said “…will begin next month through many outlets.”

And has yet to be announced here, and has already aired ep. 01.

Yup, PP was on the trolley. Majikoi ep. 1 is up and running and is listing Sentai as the publisher. Well time to give it a whirl.
