Just switched to a Funimation streaming subscription. Let's have a little fun with it. I'm gonna give anyone the opportunity to pick any anime streaming on Funimation's site you'd like for me to watch and review. This will be the same voting format as the Anime/ Manga Series of the Month.
Here is a rundown of the rules for voting...
Quick Rules 1. Each voter gets three nomination votes and two second votes to vote for an anime series on Funimation for me to cover. 2. The anime in question must be streamable on Funimation. I will not allow votes for anime that get streamed off other sites. 3. Once an anime gets a nominating vote and two second votes, the series will be a final chosen title for the voting stage of the title selection. 4. Voting will end after either five titles have been selected as final choices or a two-week deadline of September 30 at midnight EST is reached. 5. In the event a full roster of five titles aren't voted for, I will have final choice on what nominated titles move onto the voting phase based on whether they are simply nominated or got a second vote. To make this fair, I will be forbidden from voting throughout the nominating process. 6. Also to address some things, I will have some restrictions in place...
Any anime I've already reviewed on this site will not be eligible for voting. See Taka's Review listing to see what I've already reviewed.
Reviewed material also includes anime I covered in my old Ani-Crap Review series. The provided links includes the majority of anime I covered for it. The few individual review pages I made for it also include Blazblue: Alter Memory, Diabolik Lovers, and Baoh.
I am limiting chosen titles I will watch to 64 episodes in length at most. Not gonna marathon through ridiculously long anime like Dragon Ball or Fairy Tail as that will take too long to get done.
Any ongoing titles as of the end of the polling will also not be considered.
All that out of the way, feel free to nominate anything on Funimation you'd like me to marvel or get tortured with.
Stein's Gate (Seconded)
Daimidaler: Prince vs Penguin Empire Valkyrie Drive -Mermaid- (Seconded)
Seven Mortal sins since me and menos watch and review that crap, so you must suffer with us (actually is watchably bad, so maybe not suffer, just annoyed). Stein; Gate bc I have a gentle heart inside Also just to throw something random............ X (the anime is just call X and look very shoujo-esque, but also remember having some cool scenes).
Taka: I believe some countries have shut down their public transportation in addition to grounding flights internationally and closing their borders.

Taka: USA and Canada close their borders with each other. Strangely enough, USA and Mexico are still open.

Taka: As for anime business, I'll work on the Spring 2020 anime stuff this weekend. I will finish up the Winter 2020 banners. My apologies. I thought I will out of work due to the virus outbreak. I'm glad I'm still working at the pharmacy

Dream: Looks like California and New York are now enforcing all non-essential workers to stay home, except for necessary needs and all public gatherings are banned, at least in New York. New York's are in effect Sunday.

Dream: Far as essential workers go, the following are in the category to my knowledge: retail, pharmacies, warehouses, food suppliers, medical offices, transport, emergency personnel, banks, media. May be some differences in what is considered essential...
Mar 20, 2020 17:27:04 GMT
Dream: ...dependent on state or localities. But basically, anything that is a major need for everyday living is considered essential.

Dream: Looks like a remake of Higurashi no Naku Koro ni will be airing in July. The original seiyuu from the 2000s series will reprise their roles for the remake and judging from the animation, looks like it will have more polish to it compared...
Mar 21, 2020 21:51:24 GMT
Dream: ...to the 2000s series.
Mar 21, 2020 21:51:30 GMT
Taka: That's interesting to hear. Didn't know it was going to get a remake.

Dream: Guess I'm gonna focus on wrapping up Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken whenever it comes out today. Been one of my favorites for the season.
Mar 22, 2020 16:44:54 GMT
Taka: I need to catch up or drop/put on hold whatever series I tried.
Mar 22, 2020 21:25:15 GMT
Taka: 1 confirmed death in my hometown next to 19 confirmed cases. I heard the police are fining folks for not practicing social distancing on Facebook.
Mar 24, 2020 2:31:40 GMT
Dream: At least in New York right now, they're not enforcing it. But non-essential employers who aren't abiding by shutting down at this point will be fined and shut down at this point.

Master Menos: Had some serious personal trouble go on, but now I'm through it. On-Topic, where I'm in, everything but the stores (and possibly the restaurants) are closed down.
Mar 27, 2020 17:48:40 GMT
Taka: They closed off beaches and parks along bike paths as well as extending K-12 school closure to mid May while colleges are cancelled for the semester.

CosmicNoirTear: Everything closed on my part. I live by a bunch of shopping centers. All of the are ghost towns. Hopefully means most people where I live are taking this seriously. Also got laid off from my job two weeks ago.
Mar 29, 2020 2:46:08 GMT
Dream: My county has 6 confirmed cases. Restaurants and bars have been on take-out or delivery only for about a couple weeks now since New York's the hardest hit state. Hasn't been too different for me any who since I've been out of work and tight on money...
Mar 29, 2020 15:11:51 GMT
Dream: ...to do anything outside of getting essentials and job hunting in recent months. Though with the state pretty much on lockdown, likely gonna have a rough time finding any employer to work with in-person for a while.
