I want to believe that Crunchyroll will get the streaming right for the series, but don't want to get my hopes up just to be shot down.

Does anyone know where I can watch it though? I have a feeling that CR will not pick it up.

It is less about whether CR will pick it up, and more about that Sentai very likely will. After all, they licensed the original series and it apparently did well for them, therefore it seems a given they will license this one. Unless TAN suddenly decides to get back in the simulcast game after being absent for a few seasons now, that leaves CR as Sentai's only logical simulcast outlet.

Even if the premier date passes with no announcement, I would say not to give up hope for about a week or so. After all, even when TAN simulcast the series, it was the first one they were late announcing & starting, and it isn't the only simulcast of of TBS series to be announced and start late. (TBS apparently can be a bit difficult to work with).

It is on Hulu, but if you want it de-steamed you're gonna have to go to the dark side. Plus there's an OVA and whatnot anyway.

The legal alternative is to pay for a TAN (The Anime Network) membership and watch the dub. Unfortunately, for series they simulcast, they don't go back and replace the subtitled version with the uncensored cut.

They also have the OVA, but for some reason made only the dubbed version available online.

Interestingly, if CR got the new series and then obtained the original series from Sentai, they would have the uncensored subtitled version that TAN lacks (just as happened with Samurai Girls).

I expect the dark side to provide some uncensored plot.

The original season was odd to me. It was obviously horrible on many levels, but I went into it thinking that. The one stand out however, something I hope yet know they're not going to properly address, of ir they do, barely at that.

Sexy Char-clone jokes aside, Charles Dunois is easily the strongest character they have. Being a reverse-trap alone was far less cliche than everything else in the show, and they handle it rather obviously. You KNOW that this character is both another Harem subject, and a Gay/Yaoi joke without actually being Ho-yay.

The part that sold it for me however, was how simple the interactions with Char fleshed out the main character in ways that arn't exactly planned.

Charlotte/Charles/Char is a bit of a weird character here. She was intended to play 'the Dudette" in a way with how the MC handles here. She's introduced as one of the guys, he treats her like one of the guys. He's not romantically interested in her, because she's supposed to be "one of the guys" and a friend. But there is already a character archetype like that IN THE SHOW. In fact, it's done twice. This is the job of a childhood friend character, He's supposed to be friendly but never romantic.

In both Childhood Friend characters, they're seldom focused on, already lack personality, and provide nothing for the MC or the Viewer, they're essentially background characters. Char has a backstory, Char is relying on MC, Char acts as the MC's confidant at times. IF the MC wants to take some R&R, he hangs with Char.
Because we know how he acts to the Childhood friend characters, the ones he should be buddy buddy with, being buddy buddy with Char makes the entire thing seem a little romantic. I fucking liked that shit. When Char goofed off I felt tied to the character in a way.

If season 2 gives me some more of that, I'll probably ignore the faults and watch and discuss it with you guys in the forum!

Laura is another character that surprised me. She actually reminds me more of Shampoo(Ranma 1/2) than an actual love interest. She wants our MC, and she's extremely selfish about it. She's not destructive or vindictive, she's just highly focused on herself. Which, love is a battlefield, all's fair, you know the quotes. Her chances of obtaining the MC is rather low, yet her ever leaving the MC alone? Never. She'll be pushing for an affair the moment he gets married to anyone else, which adds to her character.

IMHO, Charlotte is the best girl. I also was surprised at how much I liked Laura after the MC defeated her.

I wasn't fond of the hintings that Houki will win, but maybe season 2 will help move things towards a French win

I may have to get myself to watch the rest of S1, I could never get through all of it, I think I have like 4 more episodes. I'll put it on the backburner though, so many good anime this season.

Of those episodes, I'll say you have about 15 minutes of decent worth, all and all. You shouldn't worry too much about it, unless you want to see Charles in a bathing suit, just ignore the ending.

Of course...unlike most Charles pulls it off.

I-I mean, it's not like I already watched the first season, Crunchyroll...


EDIT: And may I say that I went in the first season expecting a normal mecha anime...how wrong I was...


EDIT 2: Why is this even a season? Houki already won.

With that Mecha design? BWA HA HA HA HA!

With the premise of "the only guy who can pilot girl-mecha"? AAAAAAH HA HA HA HA HA!

Did you even look at the MC? Generic Blue haired guy is what I call'em. They have harems, they have blue hair, and they got a MASSIVE.....lack of originality.

Then you see the reverse Trap and you're like.....ok, I can deal with this. Show me what you got, come on lets see it.
