HOUSTON, July 1, 2012 — The best things in life are dirty and Sentai Filmworks’ latest acquisition, So, I Can’t Play H!, is out to prove it. Based on the light novels by Pan Tachibana, So, I Can’t Play H! is directed by Takeo Takahashi (Rozen Maiden, Spice and Wolf) with series composition by Naruhisa Arakawa (Listen to Me, Girls. I am Your Father!, Upotte!!), character designs by Kanetoshi Kamimoto (Burst Angel, Taisho Baseball Girls) and music by Cher Watanabe (Prince of Tennis II).

NEVER make a deal with a wet goddess you’ve only just met. That’s a lesson Ryosuke Kaga learns the hard way when he foolishly agrees to let Lisara Restole use some of his “essence” to stay in this world. Because despite her smoking hot appearance, Lisara’s actually a Shinigami, a Goddess of Death. However, she DOESN’T steal years off his life like any decent Shinigami would do. Oh no, instead she sucks him dry of something much more perverse by leeching off his lecherous spirit and draining his ability to enjoy… er… the things that teenage boys normally spend most of their time thinking about! And now that he’s been de-debased and de-debauched by her un-dirty trick, the poor regenerated degenerate’s only hope of getting his licentiousness renewed is to join the queen of mental-clean on her quest, since when she leaves our mortal plane he regains his normal immorality! But the termination of the probation of his reprobation isn’t guaranteed, because Goddesses of Death can be really harsh mistresses and it’s going to be anything but easy to go back to being sleazy in So, I Can’t Play H!

So, I Can’t Play H! will be available soon through select digital outlets with a home video release to follow next year.

Anime studio feel. to produce Pan Tachibana’s supernatural romantic comedy

The Japanese online retailer reported on Wednesday that an anime adaptation of Pan Tachibana’s Dakara Boku wa, H ga Dekinai. (So, I Cannot Get Erotic.) romantic comedy light novel series has been green-lit. The anime studio feel. is producing the project. The main character of the story, who lost his “erotic spirit” by making a contract with a beautiful Goddess of Death, struggles to regain that spirit back.

Ryosuke, Toen Gakuen’s No. 1 pervert, is anguished. He cannot enjoy himself while living with the Godess of Death Risara under a contract, because he gave up his erotic spirit under the deal. He cannot get excitement from watching girls and wonders if his adolescent days are over.

Tachibana, who is also a personal computer game scenario writer, launched the light novel series last year, and Fujimi Shobo’s Fujimi Fantasia Bunko imprint has published five volumes with illustrations by Yoshiaki Katsurai so far. A manga adaptation is running in Fujimi Shobo’s Dragon Magazine.

Update: According to the title on the official homepage, the anime will be on television.

So, I Can’t Play H!

Availability for free users: Jul 14, 2012 at 2:00pm**

If everything goes as I think it will So, I Can’t Play H will be the most watched non-mainstreem anime on Crunchyroll. If you noticed the PV on Crunchyroll is uncensored.

Crunchyroll somtimes added extra censoring in the past to animes. Even Funimation added censoring to High School dxd that was uncensored on tv.

The only thing I am curious about is why episode 1 is available for free users the same day premium users can view it. Is it becouse it’s not expected to be popular or it will be popular and lure more people to Crunchyroll? Has that ever happend to a new simulcast before?

Usually with shows like this there is two TV versions a uncut usually “late night” version and a cut for certain channels version. Usually the cut version is what is sent out for simulcast. I think it’s because Americans are

This anime looks like it would be awesome even without the fan-service.

Darn its not uncensored on Crunchyroll! :frowning:

well i just finished watching the third episode and i think i see how it’s going to go. a new hot female shinigami to face off against in every episode.i’m not complaning about it mind you. just an observation.

i am going to complain about the choosen methode of censorship though. i mean why block out a huge section of the screen with a big ole rectangle or triangle or whatever shape they come up with when a small pixilated area would do the trick? well that’s all i got to say about that. i’m sure you’ve heard it all before.

i do like everything else bout it. it’s a fun story with lots of pretty girls. it also a very good job of animation. very clean line, no ruff edges, and the back ground is sharp with no blurry or fadeing or twitchy bits as the scene moves along.

did i mention it has a lot of pretty girls?
