Downloaded the first episode of the series and will see it tomorrow afternoon to see if I'll stick with it.
@takashichea: To my knowledge, there are currently no streaming sites that have picked up the series.
I haven't seen your views on Shonen series. I have read your reviews, the Anicrap and the newer shows (only the ones I watched). I never seen your take on Shonen except for Inuyasha. You might like it if you can tolerate recycled Shonen series. It's a bit ecchi like Soul Eater and Fairy Tail.
Thanks for check up, I'm still working on the simulcast guide. It's always a waiting game.
Turns out, the series is being faithful to the manga, the rumor of the king falling ill aside. It was still enjoyable to see it all begin again.
@takashichea: You pointed out weeks ago in the Tokyo Ghoul Discussion that some simulcasted episodes get same day release for Hulu Plus members. I thought you were one, but I guess not from the sound of it. I'd rather just stick with one paid simulcast service too.
I was just pointing out what I saw on HULU. I was wondering why the episodes from FUNimation were on the same day since HULU is one week behind FUNimation and the Japanese broadcast. There are sometimes episodes that come up early and they are marked with the H+ icon.
@takashichea: My reaction to most recycled shounen titles is indifference and normally give them average receptions at most. Inuyasha was something of an exception to this since it doesn't follow many of the conventional story elements you would find from long-running shounen titles like the HST or DBZ.
2 felt as if it was the manga animated. An to me that is a good thing. This is shonen over the top an then some.
@takashichea: The animation is fairly spot on to the manga. An Even Aniplex own web site is not showing this! I mean wth! This is a series that could no should draw a good ratings. The manga sold like mad to. Just do not get that it has no broadcast deal any where else but TBS.
Just one more week I'll wait. If no simulcast picks up, I'm breaking my own moral rules of watching things legally!
Seriously, I just don't get why simulcast sites couldn't pick up. Like you, BigHeart711, and everyone said, it has a legal manga simulpub, it's selling crazy in Japan and USA.
@takashichea: 1st two episodes are very faithful to the manga. Almost one chapter one episode even. Id guess their is a strong 80% plus chance you will enjoy the show. Has that Fairy Tail feel but more pervert lead an way smaller cast size. Very fun show for me. An the manga was a great read I got up to 57 an stopped once I learned the anime was gonna come out.
Who ever broke down the stories to animate must have a love for the series. Just masterfully done compared to how some manga /comic properties are butchered in movies an anime.
Said it many times anime companies go out of their way to leave money on the table. An some one will make that money if they will not. Now I plan on buying this soon as it comes out on disc. But they could have made money on the simulcast an chose not to. I think their lost decade may well be not just the governments fault after all.
