Are the other two rival groups ready for a new series of cross-band duets, with each song pairing one member of STARISH and one member of HEAVENS?

With Sato being better trained, more experienced, and allied with other Ajins, Kei has only two chances at heading off the final apocalypse: to somehow learn how to better control the Invisible Black Matter being he generates or to recruit other Ajins into the battle.

Because Rekka has a personal score to settle with Karma, and she's determined to destroy that Horror herself!

It won't be easy adjusting… and not just because Chiya still tends to check to see if people have tails or want their tummies rubbed! But the other girls studying at the Natsumeya teahouse are all unusual in their own ways, and it's clear from the beginning that Chiya's going to be great friends with studious Kon, rambunctious Koume and shy Nono. And that's good, because if Chiya's going to find her missing mother, she'll need all the help and support she can get in URARA MEIROCHO!

And just in case that isn't exciting enough, the "ClassicaLoids" have added Giant Robots and spectacular light shows to the mix! But as more Classicaloids continue to arrive, can the town withstand the combined creative energies of dozens of musical geniuses all determined to promote their own creative output? Find out when Bach is back, Liszt is on the list, and Chopin is chopping at the bit to unleash the full power of classical music in ClassicaLoid!

      Not much to look at. No dub for Urara, but I expected it after they skipped dubbing Girlish Number.

        That has to be a mistake because it implies that it's getting dubbed.

          ^ Double checked with S23, it's not a typo. English dub is included.

              The heck? This is a surprise, especially to have it start with this movie...

                Still no Sunrise rescues or LoGH. I sold off my copy of Zegapain so many years ago now and still have not been able to buy the replacement. Sunrise I guess are too busy with Gundam but still how many years is it since Sentai got all those Sunrise titles?

                Also I wish sentai would put out Urashiman on DVD or BD. Not sure why they went to all the trouble to subtitle it only to stream it.

                  Pretty weak month for releases there. Then again, this is the time that their Winter 2017 shows are coming out, and that was the last season before they went to Anime Strike for all their streaming needs, and as such it had a pretty empty slate. So yeah, nothing for me among their April releases with Uta no Prince-sama being the only potential buy, which I would only get during the holiday sales.

                      Woah there, you should not expect Urara Meirochou not getting a dub because of Girlish Number not getting one, because they don't have anything in common except for the fact that they are both comedies and licensed by the same company. Urara Meirochou is a supernatural moe show that came out Winter 2017 while Girlish Number was a behind the anime production show that came out Fall 2016. Both from different animation companies, manga companies and Urara Meirochou has an all female led cast of characters while Girlish Number had a few male characters that were important to their show's story. Therefore they are independent from one another, meaning the result of Girlish Number getting a sub-only release does not affect Urara Meirochou getting a sub-only release. (Independent Events in Probability)
                      What you are trying to do is make them dependent but did not work. Consider Shirobako and Girlish Number, both did not get dubs from Sentai Filmworks and both behind the scenes of anime production shows, though from different animation studios. You see that there is a connection that Shirobako has with Girlish Number, thus the chances of Girlish Number getting a dub depended on whether Shirobako got one. Consider why recently most Shounen-ai shows don't get dubs too as an example.
                      Though there could be many reasons as to why those shows did not get dubbed like what company it's licensed by or even the streaming numbers that show might have had. This is only a hypothesis of the possible trends in anime and why certain shows might not get dubbed because of said trends that I kind of did some research on before replying to you Jin.

                      Other than that, gotta pick up season 1 of both Ajin and Haikyuu because I really want to pick up their sequels in the future. Also would like to get ClassicaLoid and Urara Meirochou.

                        Pretty light month, though glad to see we're getting Ajin S2 with a nice LE box like the first season. Will definitely be picking that one up. Nothing else for me though.

                          Wrong, they both have something in common, and its their popularity. Just look at their MAL member count. I hoped they would be dubbed, but after they skipped Girlish Number, I really didn't have any high hopes that Urara would get dubbed either.

                          Edit: On top of that, they're both shows with mostly female focused casts that are more slice of life oriented, their reception wasn't particularly strong sadly. If the shows would've had very strong positive reception, that would've increased their dub chances. If they would've been significantly more popular, that would've also increased their chances.

                          The fact that Sentai skipped them shows they have other priorities, which are shows that are action based, shows that have more popularity and shows with strong positive reception.

                          They are also two very recent shows, Sentai has run out of older things to dub from their catalog except for Haikyu Season 3, now they're just going to focus on what they think has the biggest chances of being successful from 2017. Sentai have also changed their dub process from when Shirobako came out, now they are more selective and careful with what they dub, they consider premium box set marketability and they look at fan reception, popularity and requests to help them decide.

                            First and foremost, you misread everything I said. Let's start with your claim on popularity, popularity is not one of those factors that makes one show depend on the other, that's an independent factor bro. A show's popularity is based on how well it does rather than another project's work. They have to compete with other shows from their season, which are again independent factors, again not affecting the other's result. Girlish Number had to compete with shows like Flip Flappers, Drifters and Yuri on Ice, while Urara Meirochou had to compete with shows like Interviews with Monster Girls, Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid, and Little Witch Academia, two different seasons entirely. If you bring up oh they went against March comes in like a Lion, Tiger Mask W and Monster Hunter Stories Ride On, I'm only talking about the new series that only last a season like Girlish Number and Urara Meirochou did. Things like slice of life, behind the scenes of anime production, and others along those lines are dependent factors.
                            Also MAL is not the only site anime fans use, there's Anime News Network, Crunchyroll, Anime Planet, this site, YouTube (anime YouTubers) and many others where people talk about it. Let's say for example, ecchi shows are very popular, people say those shows make money so why didn't Undefeated Bahamut Chronicle get a dub?

                            Not all female focused casts are slice of life oriented like Urara Meirochou (ANN doesn't call it a Slice of Life show), Kemono Friends and Ange Vierge. There were a few episodes of Girlish Number that focused on Gojo Karasuma, Chitose's older brother and former voice actor, did he not have a major part in the story of the show or what? Also didn't Juzo, Kuzu-P, Assistant Producer Towada, and President Namba, have an affect to the story? Both answers they did.
                            On that last part, where are you getting your facts from, before you got into they consider premium box set marketability? Because a lot of people like Shirobako, it's #320 on MAL, it's very popular with the Anime community, why didn't it get a dub? Well it's because it's a show about behind the scenes of anime production. Also that announcement was about 2 years. So in a span of about 2 years Sentai supposedly changes their way of thinking.
                            In the last part you are missing a bunch of shows that are old like Tribe Cool Crew, we never got an announcement for that! Finally when it comes to very recent, we're talking about this season and last season, not shows that came out close to a year ago!
