Safe to say for its catagory it was above average. Comedy was good. Animation was on point an the overall story good. Would say it was great for ecchi fans as it took it just far enuff to be funny an had a good amount of action mixed with comedy.

News on the FUNimation home release, it will not be completely uncensored, just a mix of broadcast and uncut scenes
FUNimation Entertainment confirmed with ANN that its home video release of Tsugumomo uses "a combination of uncensored and TV broadcast materials based on what was available from the licensor." Funimation's stream of the series, while labelled "uncut," also uses some broadcast episodes.
Television anime use various methods to censor images that cannot appear on television, but typically remove these for the home video releases. The Japanese Blu-ray Disc release reportedly has uncut versions for all the episodes — fans have posted screenshots online but ANN has not independently confirmed the images.
For example, Funimation's uncut version of first episode removes a soap bottle that was covering Kiriha's nipple. However, the eighth episode on Funimation's release still obscures Kokuyou's nipples in a bath scene. Both Kiriha and Kokuyou appear as adults, though Kiriha also has a child form that appears in some scenes (including the bath scene in episode eight).
The official website for the Tsugumomotelevision anime announced on Wednesday that the series will get a second season titled Tsugu Tsugumomo that will premiere in 2020. Ryōichi Kuraya is returning to direct the season and handle series composition, and Zero-G will again animate the series. Toei began streaming a promotional video for the announcement that summarizes the first anime season.
The crowdfunding campaign to fund a new original video anime (OVA) for the Tsugumomo anime franchise announced on April 19 that the campaign has reached its 6 million yen stretch goal (about US$53,500) to make the OVA have a runtime of 20 minutes or more. The campaign has earned 6,974,000 yen (about US$62,200) as of press time. The campaign will end on Friday.
The campaign launched on March 7, and reached its initial 3 million yen (about US$26,869) goal for a 10-minute episode after 14 hours.
The OVA will feature "slightly ecchi episodes that can't be broadcast on TV." The project will release a manga volume that will bundle the OVA in 2020. Depending on the funds raised, the length of the anime and number of episodes will increase. Ryōichi Kuraya will direct and write the script for the OVA, and Zero-G will animate it.
The anime will also get a second season titled Tsugu Tsugumomo that will premiere in 2020. Ryōichi Kuraya is returning to direct the season and handle series composition, and Zero-G will again animate the series.
Taka: Thanks Master Menos! I'll work on finishing the Winter 2020 guide.

Dream: My second Funi poll is done. Titles I will be watching and reviewing will include Chobits, Samurai Champloo, Spice and Wolf, Gankutsuou, and Dance in the Vampire Bund. Will let folks know which one I start off tomorrow at some point.

Dream: First anime I will sample among the Funi titles is Chobits. As a heads up, the series on Funi's Youtube channel is missing the two recap episodes the series aired. Not that I'll be missing those however.

Dream: Wow, never knew Shinbo was Gil, Sousuke, and Domon. More you know.

Dream: Just completed Chobits. Will get a review up for it at some point this afternoon.
Jan 18, 2020 18:37:22 GMT
Dream: Will post a little later what the next voted anime will be that I will watch and review.
Jan 18, 2020 19:48:38 GMT
Dream: Next anime up to cover will be Dance in the Vampire Bund. Suppose a short anime will do for now following Chobits.

Dream: Concluding things at episode 2 with Vampire Bund for the night. Hoping to get back to Basquatch tomorrow, as long as I'm not swamped with anything.

Dream: Geez, it's really quiet. No activity in the forums since I posted my review from yesterday.

Taka: I'll email the receipts. The best anime and manga of 2019 will be extended to Wed. I don't get time off for Mon because of community service. Please vote if you haven't yet. Thank you!

Dream: Hmmmm... looks like the version of Vampire Bund I'm seeing on Funi's YouTube channel's an edited version. A couple minutes of episode 2 were clearly removed with Mina in nothing but underwear battling human assassins. Then again, recall there was a good...

Dream: ...deal of controversy with the series a decade earlier thanks to the seemingly underaged nudity of Mina while in her younger form.

Dream: Not sure if I should be donning the nostalgia goggles or not giving a damn. Looks like the original Digimon Adventure series is getting a reboot airing starting in the Spring season.

Taka: I'll watch it if there's nothing catching my eye in Spring. winter 2020 was a weak anime season for me.
Jan 22, 2020 18:29:46 GMT
Dream: Wouldn't say it's all bad for me. Have a few titles holding my interest. Just it typically doesn't have as many major titles of note that would hold me over.
Jan 22, 2020 23:54:44 GMT
Dream: Done with Vampire Bund. Will be working on a review of it before I hop into the next Funi series. Hoping to get it up either tonight or tomorrow, depending on how lengthy my thoughts get.
