Woohoo, new KyoAni anime!

Woohoo, new KyoAni anime!

And thus starts the autumn 2013 season of anime. It took us about 12 straight hours of work to get this out to you, but I’m damn happy that we did it. To all the new visitors: welcome, and thank you for checking us out. For those of you who haven’t even heard of us before—why aren’t you watching Aikatsu? And finally, thank you to everyone who has come back once again for another season of anime.

Also, though I don’t have a screenshot, we chose to translate 異界士 (ikaishi) as exorcist. I’m sure that most people would agree that those who use powers to exterminate demons are rightfully called exorcists.

Yuyu: CR is pretty bad, by the way. Both video- and script-wise, from what I’ve heard. Also Xythar a lewd slacker.
