You guys make Kaguya-sama sound pretty amazing. Guess it's my loss as there's no English dub in sight. Maybe someday ;).

Spec Ops has been on my list for a while. However, I didn't realize it would be this dark. Not that it's a problem for me or anything; I'm quite intrigued.

Endro seems like an ideal series to kick back and relax to. It's been simuldubbed, too, so it should be worth a shot. I'll probably get to it once I'm done with all the sequels and two-cour shows which have come to an end just now.

Speaking of which, I'm definitely interested in seeing dat Slime boi in action. It sounds like a fun character concept, and as far as I'm informed, he's voiced by Brittney Karbowski in the English version. Which automatically makes me excited :).

Kagua sama love is war is definitly a very good anime. I definitly place it in the top 3 of this season with the Quintessential Quintuplets and domestic girlfriend(as i do not agree with you guys opinion on it except the slight slowdown for 1-2 episodes).
It was indeed very original and very funny.

Can't say I'm surprised, but glad Slime is getting a dub.

I would be shocked if Aniplex doesn't get Kaguya dubbed, but at the same time, they don't dub comedies much do they?

That's tricky for me to say since I don't often remember which company licenses what shows. Overall, though, the consensus among the dub community is that Aniplex localizes about 50% of their series. So I'll just have to wait and hope the coin flip goes the right way ;).
