That's actually a good question, Lorreen. I usually have the dub turned on – it doesn't suck – when I'm playing the games. (As for the anime, I'm waiting to see if Hulu gets it.)

I'm guessing the anime will show up on Hulu. It's on Funimation now--I'm able to see it on my Roku, but wouldn't be surprised if there's a week delay for it be generally available outside of elite subscribers (I'm not one, but discovered that via Roku Funi seems to treat me like one).

lorreen, do you not watch subs much? I hardly recognize Japanese voices apart, so their voices don't bother me in the least (at least not more than other high-pitched voices).

Secondly, it's a niche anime from a niche game. The best way to tell if it's for you or not is whether or not you like the humor. Personally, I love all of the characters, so it's gold for me. Very light-hearted, nonsensical, and a bit on the pervy side.

The anime, however, really exaggerated the breasts. Purple Heart's (Neptune's CPU form) breasts aren't THAT big (they were medium in the first game and gradually got bigger, but even in the most recent game they are smaller than that) and the jiggle is just EVERYWHERE. Sometimes it's nice, like Noire walking in the forest with the others, but the opening scene was a bit much.

I watch subs all the the time. It's the amount of the dialogue that's very high-pitched (and perhaps even extra energetic and cutesy on top of simply being high pitched) that's bothering me a lot. If it's just one character with that kind of voice, and they aren't talking all the time, it's okay. But here there are several voices of that sort and they were nearly constantly talking or squealing, and that was very definitely grating to to me. If that were the only problem, and it was otherwise amazing, I might get around that by just turning the volume down, or off, but that would also change the overall feel of things.

I've been expanding my repertoire of "humor that I like" but this show seems to be outside of my range of appreciation.

Honestly, I think this anime is a service for the fans of the games. It's probably pretty random for people who don't know the characters/how they act/interact. They kinda introduced the Goddesses, but otherwise, it's just a bunch of people in a futuristic world with boobs.

In summary, this anime only really makes any sort of sense if you've played at least one of the games. Even then it still doesn't fully make sense >_>

But I'm excited to see where they take it!

Well, only Neptune's (Purple Heart's) body changes. The other girls just have hair color/style/length changes.

But, yes

It appears to be an "alternate re-telling " of sorts.

I kind of like this anime! I mean it just seems like it's going to be fun to watch. Sometimes I need a show that is just mindless humor to relax before i go to bed. I made the mistake of watching 'End of Evangelion' right before bed, so I like shows like this! It's not even for the sexy girls or boobs. If I want that, I'll just watch High School DxD.

First episode and as a fan of the game series I am not disappointed!!! They even broke the fourth wall (figuratively and literally) before the opening credits, included several enemies from the games, and also had one of the battle themes as a ringtone!!! xD The girls also now look even more moe then ever in anime form!!! ^.^

I wasn't expecting however...

So chapter 2... I think that lickity perverted robot will turn off many fans. Not to say, I doubt I would be the only one who was happy he got "Blasted off again""
