But then one day she goes unannounced to his agency with a delivery, and overhears him talking about her; he reveals to his manager that he only took her with him as a maid, and that he doesn’t care for her at all.

Skip Beat! Anime’s Indiegogo Campaign Launches

Campaign seeking funds for English dub will run until March 31

If there were something like this for Rokka, I could be interested.

The show and the CA dub don’t really appeal to me. What I find weird is that I like that they’re offering on-disc extras as stretch goals but it irks me that Funimation is doing the same thing. I guess I have higher expectations from Funi lol.
