Maybe it's not time to give up on blu-ray fansubs after all. Salvotnt just recently released Sailor Moon Crystal bd eps 1-4. Of course, SMC subs already reached episode 7, so functionally this is totally useless. But if it's a sign of future endeavors, Salvotnt could be the key to unlocking this long neglected series.
In addition, Kantai fansubs has just released episodes 1-2 of Idolm@ster Cinderella Girls. Chibiki already reached episode 5 in blu-ray, but again perhaps this means Kantai will eventually exceed that limit and subtitle many more episodes to come.
So long as there's hope for these shows receiving a proper blu-ray fansubbed release, there's no point jumping the gun and watching the inferior tv version again.
There still doesn't seem to be any miracle planned for Utawarerumono - Itsuwari no Kamen though. Of course, if you know Italian, there's a fansubbed blu-ray release in that fine language. . .
Meanwhile, I've properly rewatched episode 499 of Naruto Shippuuden (which was really good, by the way!), as well as The Last -- Naruto the Movie. I'm just waiting on episode 500 to come out before my watch and rewatch of this series is complete. I'll watch the stupid episode back to back and be done with it once and for all. I'll never again watch Naruto unless it's in its Kai, Cut to Manga, or at least Abridged form. This fifteen year struggle with filler and flashbacks can finally come to an end.
Konosuba season 2 is over so we're down to just 10 shows airing now. Hurry up, spring season! We need you!
Meanwhile, the favorites won all their March Madness games, so some surprisingly tough matchups are in store for the round of 32.
Meanwhile, UQ Holder has been slated to start airing this fall. It of course will be an extension of my already ranked Negima anime, since it's just a sequel to the Negima manga. Let's hope they don't butcher UQ Holder like they did the Negima manga, then maybe this show can rise a bit in my rankings. (Though the early UQ Holder chapters really weren't much good, so a mere 12 episode UQ Holder anime adaption of said early chapters will barely move the gauge.)
