Episode 1

And it begins with Eriri and Utaha thinking back to the time they first met a year ago. Utaha got too close to Tomoya, and that sparked hostility between those two. While they still aren't completely on the same page today seeing that Eriri is not exactly pleased with the extra work from Utaha's writing, the story was quite different back then. It was after Utaha saw just how passionate Eriri is that the two got along. That was such a nicely told story there. In the meantime, Tomoya is getting ready to promote his game that involves those sketches, all while those two girls are beat after a long day. That's a nice way to get back into the thick of things seeing that they just completed one scenario when the first season ended, but there's still a lot of work ahead. It's important to build chemistry because they are going to need it.

Episode 1 is, but nothing further since. Getting a bit annoyed.

And on something co9mpletely unrelated. I thought Izumi-chan grew during the layoff in shows, but nope. Rewatched episode 8 and she's just a big middle schooler. Why when I was in school all the girls looked like, well, school girls.

It's up now. Normally, the video goes up at 11am Pacific every Thursday. The first episode went up earlier in Japan, but moving forward it will appear at the same time. Unfortunately, no times are given for the other shows on Anime Strike at the moment as Sentai only specifies day of week, and Re:Creators and Virgin Soul only say that they are coming shortly after it concludes its airing.

Episode 1

Hmm, so the real story begins now.

Thought it was kinda interesting to see Utaha and Eriri's past when they first met. I mean, from the start, the two already have a rocky relationship. The love triangle between the two and Tomoya is slightly amusing although I'm more in favor of Utaha here.

Idk why but the pacing feels kinda slow so far. Hope it picks up soon. Also no Michiru at all this episode. I hope this season will give her more screen time.

So are the subs still mistimed? I cancelled my Anime Strike sub because subs were bad and shows weren't added on time. But unfortunately so far, there doesn't seem to be any other way to watch this show and I need more Utaha.

Kato's disarming sweetness and ability to see things clearly is why she will beat Eriri and Utaha to the finish line with Tomoya.

By the time Utaha and Eriri finish bickering Kato will be married and pregnant with Tomoyas kid.

The amazon anime streaming is(or seems to be anyway) USA only, so I have no idea who got this for the UK and europe, or is it just lost in the ether for us forever.


The service is new and is being tested over there prior to releasing it in other territories.

I agree that this episode felt a little slow but the content was top notch. Again this show demonstrates what the vast majority of harem shows don't seem to realize; that making your characters actually characters is important. It's not afraid to slow it down and take it's foot off the gas here and there to develop characters or tell an actual story.

It seemed much, much better this time around.

Agreed. Kato and her ponytail needs to be seen more, but this was Eriri and Utaha's show. But we also need more of the mischevious Michiru too.

It didn't feel slow to me, but then again I move at a glacial pace so it might just be me. But I agree completely that character building is the most important element of the show. For me great everything else, but little character development makes a sub-standard show. Great character development and average everything else becomes a great show.

So, CR is not getting Season 2 of Saekano? This is disappointing, since I live in Estonia and do not want to pay for Amazon streaming. Season 1 is still available in my country.
