I preordered awhile ago. :laugh:

Edit: And yes, this is now one of the few manga series I collect.

I suggest reading the manga. The anime diverts from the original storyline considerably.

Does anything ever happen in this show? I’ve been going through it while I wait for some new Funi dubs to debut and while the dub is good the show doesn’t seem to be going anywhere.

Does the show ever get anything bigger rolling? So far as I’ve seen, each episode has been its own self-contained story, each ending with a short fight sequence that the show lampoons lol.

Season 1 follows the manga more or less but it changes some things (Characters introduced earlier and Tsukune being the one that goes all bad ass against the student discipline council leader and not Moka)

Season 2 they decided to go for over the top fan service instead of kind of adapting the manga story and in my opinion the show suffered for it.

So does that mean that there will be something that happens in Season 1?

I’ve seen more than half (albeit not ep 3 as the Funi streaming service wouldn’t stream ep 3 dubbed…) and each ep has introduced a new character(s) who either joins Team Tsukune or ends up getting pwn’d by Team Tsukune and then fading into oblivion lol.

This came out when the complaint was that Monica Rial, Brina & Todd “Haberkreeper” were the leads in “everything”. Since that hasn’t been the case for a while, as I watch this dub now the lineup is almost new again :slight_smile:

Finished S1. It was pretty fun. Episode 8 was the “turning point” as that episode was hilarious and shortly thereafter something actually started to happen.

The dub was pretty awesome from the get-go as it had the Funimation “Dream Team” of yesteryear but once Sentai Staples Shelley Calene-Black and Jason Douglas entered the scene the dub went to another level. Jason Grundy is the unsung dub director (and Momo’s dub didn’t happen…).

It’s not going to earn a spot on the “ecchi shows with a plot” shelf alongside “genre luminaries” like Aesthetica, DxD and Freezing but it’s good enough that I’m surprised that it has pretty much been forgotten by Funi stateside.
