I was just about to post this. It's amazing! :zomg The Accelerator spin-off is too much for me but it'll motivate me to catch up with the 5 NT volumes and Railgun.

Pretty bad news for Crunchyroll subscribers this week. Due various corporate mergers the shared anime deal between Cruchyroll and Funimation is going to end on November 9th.

The short version is that Funimation is run by AT&T which acquired WarnerMedia and afterward rolled Cruchy into that media division. Meanwhile Funimation is owned by Sony. A direct competitor to Warner. This essentially means that Funimation anime are unlikely to be allowed on Crunchyroll after the deal ends.

This will likely effect a lot of anime.

That's the dilemma facing high schooler Masato Oosuki, who has been unwittingly thrown into an RPG world with his doting mother close behind as part of a secret government scheme. As an avid gamer, Masato is eager to show off his skills...but that's hard to do when your mom is an insanely overpowered, dual-wielding, multi-target specialist! (Source: Yen Press)

@Jammin @Arjuna No incest.
She only seems to be doting on him a lot. :XD
Well, whatever... The way I look at it, she's not my mom. :4head
Mark my words. Nothing good can come from a hot mom with crazy eyes. One look at her makes my son-con alarms go off.:nah

I would never support that kind of degenerate..


... like I was saying I see no problems with any of this. This show is going to be great.:hurr

A show with a MILF is always appreciated. :hurr
Still, I gotta admit that it's pretty much a unique set-up.
If memory serves me well, there haven't been series with a mom as the MC, or as a deuterogonist...
