Which marks the first subbed episode to be legally availible before the DVD/BD.
And due to the release schedule of both, it will finish the sub stream on CR first.

Since I'm really enjoying this one, I really hope Sentai includes this in their release whenever it comes out.
Does anyone know what anime this picture is from? I don't watch a ton of anime,a little but not much. That has nothing to do with this though so anyways - I've been drawn to this picture ever since I found it randomly online somewhere when I was maybe thirteen or so? Even had it framed for a while. Here's the picture. Any info would be so entirely appreciated.
Sentai Filmworks announced on Wednesday that it has licensed the second season of the Phi Brain: Puzzle of God (Phi Brain: Kami no Puzzle) television anime series. The Anime Network and "other digital outlets" will stream the 25-episode sequel series online. Sentai Filmworks will then release the series on home video later this year.
The anime's first season follows Kaito, a puzzle-loving freshman at the private high school named "Root Academy." He is selected as a candidate for "Phi Brain" for his extraordinary mental skills. One day, he and his childhood friend Nonoha tackle the "unsolvable puzzle" hidden in the underground ruins near the school. They are guided by the mobile device given to Kaito by the student council president.
In the second season, the story continues to revolve around the Orpheus bangle and Phi Brain, but the puzzle battles heat up. A new enemy, a group of boys named Orpheus Order, appears before Kaito and the others, and the battles begin anew.
The new season will premiere in Japan on April 8. Sentai Filmworks licensed licensed the first season, and The Anime Network is streaming the first television season online. The first season's final episode, which was delayed by one week, will air on April 1.

This is one of the ones I really wanted to see this season.
Finished up DVD 2 of the Puella Magi Madoka Magica dub.
The dub is actually turning out rather well, and has definitely hit it's stride, which is kind of nice, since these later episodes really benefit from having a a more than lackluster performance from the cast.
That being said though, I can't flippin' wait until June when the last set is released!
