I've heard some banter, that the girls likely will get drawn into skirts. To be honest, I'd prefer that :) It's just too odd seeing them in 100% panty shot mode.

arn't most of em in swimsuits? I know the main character girl looks like the standard school swim suit to me.
I wonder if funimation will leave the DVD unsensored? prolly not :P

As for drawing in skirts, the potential problem there is it had better not look like it was drawn on, I can't see then doing it believably without the original animation studio redoing it for them.

Only Fuso (Japanese) girls wear swimsuits, as well as only Orussian (Soviet) girl wears... skirt and... hmmm... tights?

The interesting thing is, they are actually using the new Japanese school swimsuits for witches, but the older (red) school swimsuit model for trainees
as showed in ep12). Quite nice ^^

ahahaha

*shakes head*
Though I guess to people who aren't used to this level of fanservice, that's a fairly good summary of why they'd not wear that much of anything.

Second season's out.
The transfer from Gonzo to AIC went pretty smoothly. You can tell the style is a little different, but its so suttle, you wont care.
I rather enjoyed the first episode. Not much to say. I bawwed at the bear scene.

Opinions?

I hate watching streaming anime, but I decided to give Crunchyroll a try today.

Not too bad, I liked it ok I guess.

And season 2 begins and it's all panty scene oriented like before. Meanwhile, for reasons I can't fathom, High school of the dead was butchered because of panties.

I wonder, do the Japanese do anything consistently? Aside from making the planet see them as a nation of perverts that is.
