After the guest slot with The Legend of Black Heaven I had planned to think carefully and pick something, but I realized doing that in a week where so many people are traveling, dealing with family, etc. might not be the most fun for people who do want to watch, so we'll do one more classic leadup.

In fact, it was the first leadup...

Warning for ecchi and nudity.

The series can be watched on the following officially:
Subbed and dubbed on Funimation
Subbed on Hulu
Subbed on Youtube

We're just going to do season 1 (episodes 1 through 12.)

Since this was the first one, I actually wrote very little about it when we did the leadup for tri...
I picked this show first because while it gets quite perverted, I feel the way the characters interact with each-other is something quite a bit interesting and something I wouldn't mind seeing in the new series (not necessarily the pervyness, but the general interactions.)

Does it have any connection to Digimon? A few actually. The series director did key animation for the third Digimon movie. And one of the female leads was Tagiru in Hunters.
In a couple days I might add more Digimon connections, since I hadn't really started doing that properly yet at the time.

I've embedded episode 1 as a preview:

Feel free to post as you wish in this thread. You can post as you are watching, episode by episode, when you finish. Whatever you want. Try and give it a couple days for later spoilers so people have time to try and view stuff without spoilers, while still interacting in the thread (especially if you decide to keep watching past the episode listed as the last one for the leadup.) If you watch one episode and it isn't for you, pop in to explain why. Have fun with it!

A new show/movie will go up each Sunday night (or early on Monday), but feel free to keep talking about older shows in their threads, or even watching past the listed episode.

If you want to chat in the Discord you can.

Hopefully you enjoy. Feel free to make any suggestions or ask an questions regarding the threads or the shows also.
