Well, the prequel is a continued from the sequel so it's recommend to watch. Basically, it's divided into arcs featuring Junichi and one of the separate characters where each of the other characters making only cameo appearances. But ya, u should watch the original first series before checking this out as it would help understand the story alot better.

After watching the first 2 eps of SS+, I can say that I don't think you would get much value at all out of SS+ without having watched SS first. You learn A LOT about each character in each of the original story arcs, and without that I don't think you'd really care much about the events going on in SS+. Amagami SS is probably a top 5 romance anime so if you enjoy that genre at all, you should watch it for sure.

edit: interesting fact, so far only 1 female has posted in this thread, lol.

So is it safe to assume CR won't be getting this?

Pretty much. It seems clear CR is finished with its scheduled announcements for the season.

That doesn't rule out any possible late acquisitions (such as this one), but don't count on any additional Winter titles to pop up anytime soon.

Also, Sentai/TAN has the first series, so they are the logical one to license it, and yet have not done so (and they've really been on a roll this season). Keep in mind that this is a TBS series, however, and they have been rather simulcast-shy in the past. Sentai actually has a significant number of TBS titles, but to my recollection with the exception of Infinite Stratos, none have been acquired as a simulcast.

On the topic of Sentai, I wonder if they have some sort of partnership with CR or something because recently, they have been licensing alot of animes that are streamed here on CR including Another and Listen to me Girls, I am Your Father!

Although there has been no official announcement, it seems too far fetched that it would be simple coincidence.

Thus far, it seems to be something that would be much more attractive to licensors in Japan than the Funico joint venture. After all, have we seen any Funimation announcements of DVD/BD licenses for any of the titles streaming at Nico Nico since the announcement (even Shakugan no Shana III - Final)?

I should note that I am excepting Last Exile - Fam and Guilty Crown, as those were announced by Funimation prior to the Funico announcement (Fam was announced months before).

Meanwhile, if I counted correctly, Sentai has now licensed 6 of the the 13 new anime simulcasts CR had for this season (or 6 of 11, if you discount the two short form anime, which are very unlikely to be licensed for physical distribution).

Well, this is the beginning of the Rihoko Sakurai arc involving 2 episodes. Honestly, the arc in the previous season was a let down for me involving Rihoko so I'm hoping this one will be better. Anyways, there's a little history about these two so if u want to know, check out this episode.

I also lol'd @ this scenario:




Also, never ever screw with your friend's best friend/potential girlfriend

Well, Rihoko Sakurai arc ended. It's better executed than the previous season but the ending seemed a little dull. Still, it was better than last season's imo.

Awkward moment:





Ai Nanasaki's arc is next.
