Sasami: Mahou Shoujo Club 2 Licensed

On the AoD forum, FUNiRepBlue had this announcement regarding Sasami: Mahou Shoujo Club (Sasami: Magic Girl Club).

I don’t have any info on the dub yet but I did want to jump in and let you guys know we do have the first and second season set. The first season is 13 episodes that we will release in one full set. The second season also has 13 episodes that will be released in one set as well. Hope that helps!

It sure does help, thanks FUNiRepBlue!

I’d been afraid that FUNimation would only license the first series with its 13 episodes which apparently doesn’t resolve anything (I haven’t watched the series so I don’t know how it goes). Then, I’d be in a lurch when it comes to the rest of the story. But this way, I’m assured to get it all AND since they are being released in sets, that’s a big win as far as I’m concerned.

Update: English dub cast announced here.

Update: My review of the 1st series from FUNimation here.

    Well I see they did learn something from the Tenchi problem after all.

    To be honest, I’m surprised they got both titles considering how mahou shoujo titles are not big sellers in the U.S. So when they announced the first series with the right of first refusal on the 2nd series, I figured it would be like Kodocha. I guess that selling both series as sets was what put it over the top.

    Great news! I wasn’t going to buy this if Funimation didn’t license both seasons. Selling it as a set is even better.

    I guess this means that FUNimation’s sales for the third OAV series were pretty good to justify licensing both Sasami series, eh? I didn’t much care about the Pretty Sammy stuff so I don’t know if I’ll even look at Sasami but I might.

    wow, that’s a big trouble. i already watch the season 1 and it’s really good, but the story isnt finished without season 2. it would make the story stop in the middle. so please… licensed season 2. it’s ridiculous to only licensed season 1 it’s as if you sell an unfinished anime…

    Well, the 2nd series is licensed, which is why I posted this. ^_^; The DVD’s will come out in November and hopefully, I’ll score an advanced copy.
