The first two Crown Handler films are out in the U.S. the third was released in Japan on Blu Ray in November, so we should be seeing an English release soon.

Off to Amazon!

Are they self contained films, or like GuP spreading a season out across multiple OVAs?

EDIT:  Never mind!  They're literally both already sitting on the shelf to my left.   I really need to get caught up on my backlog.

Just like das Finale, Crown Handler is effectively PriPri S2 but not on a television release schedule so it can all be completed on time and high quality.

It's both depressing and a relief how little merchandise that show has.  Kinda bummed I seem to have missed the window to get that hoodie too.

Not sure why the delay, but it looks like Bravern finally got announced for English streaming rights.
Bring on the Brave action.

And Bravern 1+2 dropped last night. I'd say go in without spoilers for the best effect, but that's hard to do these days. It was a LOT of fun though, but man is it an Obari series. They even have the main robot do an Obari pose as the eyecatch.

Essentially a comedy/mild parody of mecha anime in general. Isami and Smith are mecha pilots in a real robot setting, practicing in a wargame on Hawaii. And then a vastly superior force of aliens land and start blowing **** up. Right when everything seems lost, Bravern, a Yuusha style super robot lands and saves every.

It's pretty hilarious, although most of that is due to the tone shifting. One moment you have someone undergoing 'enhanced interrogation', the next you have a giant talking robot shouting about Justice before transforming into a flying car as his theme music blasts out of his speakers. A lot of the humor is of that nature, with the juxtaposition between Bravern, a very loud, hotblooded sapient robot, and the no-nonsense and confused humans who dont quite realize they've switched genres yet. Isami Bravern's chosen pilot, just has a deer in headlights look through most of this.

Dark Gathering on HiDive

Pretty interesting horror Anime so far; not a whole lot of them come out usually so its refreshing to come across one that is fairly new. I have to say that I am coming to like Yayoi as a character; vicious little girl, that's for sure.

The Executioner and her way of Life

Also a goodie and a nice Yuri Fantasy to boot; I like the premise of a fantasy world that views OP Isekai Characters as a threat and that there are Executioners trained to hunt them down.
To End is to Begin; therefore there are no Endings, only Beginnings

Bravern is certainly...interesting.   its the exact opposite of how I play the Super Robot Series, favoring the Real Robots over the Super Robots.   :grin:  and the dialog!  So many innuendos!

I have a couple weird questions:
- Do they have 'Choose Your Own Adventure' style books/manga in Japan? 
This one was prompted by the opening to Daily Lives of High School Boys that I'm watching.  The song talks about setting out on an adventure and 'flipping to the next page'.  Reminded me of some of the CYOA books I got to read as a kid in middle school. 

- Has English improved in anime in the last few years?
Tubi doesn't necessarily have the latest and greatest, and I'm okay with that, but I've noticed that English in shows as late as 2013 with Genshiken Second Generation or Ita Kiss in 2008 have better English delivery compared to the exchange between the Nadesico Ship's Captain and Earth Federation in Martian Successor Nadesico.  However, even though I can understand the words, the intonation still doesn't feel natural.  Just wonder if they've improved on that since.

Examples welcome.

Are you talking about the quality of English dubs, or the quality of English words and phrases appearing in the Japanese dubs?

Spoken English by native Japanese speakers is still pretty hit or miss.  Most of the VAs won't usually have proper English training as it is.

The latter - quality of English Words and phrases in Japanese dubs, especially by established foreign characters who are supposed to speak it with native affluence.

I love how the Frerien anime can take a quick 2 panel shot from the manga, turn it into an epic combat scene, and do it so seamlessly that I didn't even notice the difference until someone pointed it out.

They're catching up to the manga pretty quick though, so I fear that a second season might end up coming out along side No Game No Life's.

I just saw an ad for the North American release for A Place Further than the Universe in April. I am definitely getting it.
We hear that there are tumults and riots in Rome, and that voices are raised concerning the army and the quality of our soldiers. Make haste to reassure us that you love and support us as we love and support you, for if we find that we have left our bones to bleach in these sands in vain, then beware the fury of the legions.
