“TONARI NO SEKI-KUN: THE MASTER OF KILLING TIME”

HOUSTON, DECEMBER 17, 2015 – Sentai Filmworks is proud to announce its latest acquisition, Tonari no Seki-kun: The Master of Killing Time. Based on the original work of Takuma Morishige, the series was directed by Yuji Muto, with character design by Masae Otake. Shinji Kawai (STUDIO UNI) acted as Art Director.

During class, a schoolboy named Seki-kun is always creating things to entertain himself. All he cares for is creating things with an artist’s level of perfectionism and a craftsman’s attention to detail. Real dominos, shogi with original rules, a flip book with sounds…

Even Yokoi-san, who sits next to Seki-kun, always gets sucked into watching his games!

Based on the unique original work by Takuma Morishige – Japan’s one-and-only manga about not paying attention in class – this anime is about the silent battles the two have practically all the time. Please look forward to seeing the games Seki-kun breathes life into and seeing Yokoi-san’s reactions!

Tonari no Seki-kun: The Master of Killing Time will be available on select digital outlets with a home video release to follow.

“Yamishibai: Japanese Ghost Stories”

HOUSTON, December 28, 2015Sentai Filmworks is proud to announce its latest acquisition, Yamishibai: Japanese Ghost Stories. This anthology breathes new life into the horror anime genre. Utilizing the nearly lost picture card "kamishibai" storytelling method of Showa-era Japan, Yamishibai: Japanese Ghost Stories turns everyday urban legends into the stuff of nightmares. It began airing late nights in the summer of 2013, but by the summer of 2014, it had attracted masters of the J-horror genre as guest directors, with its second season introducing even more terror and invoking its own sort of urban legends.

Tomoya Takashima directed the first season, while ILCA handled general direction for the second, with the aid of horror masters Takashi Shimizu, Noboru Iguchi and Shoichiro Masumoto. Hiromu Kumamoto was in charge of scripting for season one, and worked alongside Brazily Ann Yamada for season two. Animation production was handled by ILCA.

Yamishibai: Japanese Ghost Stories is currently available on Crunchyroll and will soon be available on additional digital outlets, with a home video release to follow.

New Shoujo Anime Simulcast “Rainbow Days” + Seiyu Event “club RAINBOW!”
Posted by Godswill on 01/08/2016 at 2:13pm

We’ve previously announced seventeen shows for our winter simulcast season, but we’re adding a new two-part show in that’s perfect for any fans of love stories or cute anime boys— and of Japanese male seiyuu voice actors!

Rainbow Days is based on a shoujo romance manga that ran in the same magazine as other great shoujo manga like Kimi ni Todoke, My Love Story!!, Wolf Girl and Black Prince, Blue Spring Ride, Lovely Complex, and High School Debut, but it has a twist— unlike some other shoujo manga, the main characters are boys.

The anime version is also noteworthy in that it features some of the hottest male seiyuu voice actors who’ve voiced tons of popular bishounen characters. Each episode is about 12 minutes, and includes a separate 12-minute Japanese voice actor seiyuu show episode called “club RAINBOW,” giving you a special behind-the-scenes look into the world of Japanese voice acting. Both episodes will launch together at the same time every week at funimation.com/rainbow-days, so be sure to catch two episodes there every Sunday at 9:30 AM.

Main cast:

::: see blog post :::

Rainbow Days Synopsis:
After getting dumped on Christmas day, high school boy and hopeless romantic Natsuki Hashiba crosses paths with Anna, an aloof girl in a Santa outfit passing out tissues. For him it’s love at first sight, for her… not so much. With help from his best friends—a playboy, an otaku, and a nice guy with a sadistic streak—Natsuki sets out to win Anna’s heart and heal his own heartbreak along the way.

club Rainbow Synopsis:
If you just can’t get enough of the Rainbow Days anime, or the original manga it’s based on, Club Rainbow is sure to be a fun, cute, can’t-miss addition to your watch list! Join the main voice cast of Rainbow Days as they share behind-the-scenes stories, participate in a variety of games and events that appear in the show, and explore the city of Hokkaido trying to find the real-world locations that served as inspiration for the anime’s setting.

Watch the first episodes of Rainbow Days and club RAINBOW this Sunday at 10:30 ET/9:30 CT at funimation.com/rainbow-days!

MAMORU HOSODA’S “THE BOY AND THE BEAST” OPENS IN U.S. THEATERS NATIONWIDE MARCH 4
Posted by Funimation on 01/19/2016 at 11:09am

We’ve got two big announcements today, so let’s get started!

If you’ve ever been curious about the ins-and-outs of our theatrical releases, we’ve made it easy to stay on top of any and all developments! As of today, FunimationFilms.com is up and running—bringing you the latest news surrounding our upcoming theatrical releases. Check back often to watch new trailers, purchase advance movie tickets, get theater information, and more.

Next up, we’re excited to announce the official release date of latest film from internationally acclaimed director Mamoru Hosoda, The Boy and the Beast. This film will hit select theaters nationwide starting Friday, March 4, 2016. Tickets go on sale on February 5th, so be sure to stay tuned to FunimationFilms.com/theboyandthebeast, to secure your tickets early—not only does this ensure you’ve saved yourself a seat during this limited run, it also tells the theaters that there’s a demand for critically acclaimed, high-profile anime movies!

To make sure you can watch the movie the way you want, you’ll have the option to purchase tickets to see the movie in the original Japanese version (with English subtitles), the new English dub version produced by Funimation, or both. For those who might be curious, the English dub was developed closely with Hosoda himself to ensure the voice cast matched both his vision and direction for the film. Here’s a quick rundown of the film’s plot:

The Boy and the Beast (“Bakemono no Ko” in Japanese) tells the story of Kyuta, a young orphan living on the streets of Shibuya, who stumbles into a fantastic world of beasts. He’s taken in by Kumatetsu, a gruff, rough-around-the-edges warrior beast who’s been searching for the perfect apprentice. Despite their constant bickering, Kyuta and Kumatetsu begin training together and slowly form a bond as surrogate father and son. But when a deep darkness threatens to throw the human and beast worlds into chaos, the strong bond between this unlikely family will be put to the ultimate test—a final showdown that will only be won if the two can finally work together using all of their combined strength and courage.

To find out more, visit FunimationFilms.com/boyandthebeast and let us know on social media if you plan to attend! Official press release after the jump:

Prior to that, the film screened with English subtitles and only at a handful of film festivals in North America. Advance tickets go on sale on February 5 and can be purchased at funimationfilms.com/theboyandthebeast. “The Boy and The Beast” is a limited theatrical engagement and fans are encouraged to secure their tickets early.

“We’re very proud to showcase our English dub for the U.S. theatrical release of the ‘The Boy and The Beast,’” said Gen Fukunaga, CEO and founder of Funimation. “It was a rare opportunity to work so closely with a film’s director on a dub production and doubly so with Mamoru Hosoda – arguably the world’s most prominent anime director.”

Funimation has distributed two prior Hosoda films in the U.S., including the critically acclaimed and award-winning “Wolf Children” in 2013 and “Summer Wars” in 2010. “The Boy and The Beast” is garnering critical acclaim of its own – having recently secured a nomination in the Best Animated Feature-Independent category for the 43rd Annual Annie Awards, which recognize the best in the field of animation. The winners will be announced February 6.

“The Boy and The Beast” (“Bakemono no Ko” in Japanese) tells the story of Kyuta, a young orphan living on the streets of Shibuya, who stumbles into a fantastic world of beasts. He’s taken in by Kumatetsu, a gruff, rough-around-the-edges warrior beast who’s been searching for the perfect apprentice. Despite their constant bickering, Kyuta and Kumatetsu begin training together and slowly form a bond as surrogate father and son. But when a deep darkness threatens to throw the human and beast worlds into chaos, the strong bond between this unlikely family will be put to the ultimate test—a final showdown that will only be won if the two can finally work together using all of their combined strength and courage.

“U.S. audiences will truly be wowed by the rich imagery, characters and storyline of ‘The Boy and The Beast,’” said Mike DuBoise, EVP and COO of Funimation. “We have no doubt that this film will bring anime to the forefront of mainstream theatrical audiences, appealing to all fans of animated films, both young and old.”

The complete cast for English dub of “The Boy and The Beast” is as follows:

“Knights of Sidonia Season 2: Battle for Planet Nine”

HOUSTON, January 19, 2016Sentai Filmworks announced its acquisition of the darkly cerebral science fiction series, Knights of Sidonia Season 2: Battle for Planet Nine. The story continues to follow ace pilot, Nagate Tanikaze, as he spearheads the defense of Sidonia against a terrifying alien threat alongside an unlikely ally, a human-alien hybrid whose voice is strikingly similar to someone he loved and lost. However, Sidonia may be in more danger than anyone realized, as diabolical forces plot not only from without but also within.

Based on the manga by Tsutomu Nihei (Wolverine: Snikt!), this sci-fi anime was directed by first-season co-director Hiroyuki Seshita, with Sadayuki Murai (Bubblegum Crisis: Tokyo 2040, Kino's Journey) returning for series composition and script. The animation was handled by Polygon Pictures.

Knights of Sidonia Season 2: Battle for Planet Nine will be available soon for home video on both Blu-ray and DVD.

“Azumanga Daioh”

HOUSTON, January 20, 2016Sentai Filmworks is proud to announce its latest acquisition: the classic, offbeat comedy Azumanga Daioh! Based on the original 1999 manga series written and illustrated by Kiyohiko Azuma, Azumanga Daioh is a witty romp into the misadventures of six high-school girls – Chiyo, Tomo, Yomi, Sakaki, Kagura, and a transfer student from Osaka, aptly nicknamed “Osaka.” Under the “guidance” of some rather peculiar teachers, the girls try their best to survive wacky school culture festivals, bread-eating contests, a teacher obsessed with seeing his female student in short shorts, awkward (and sometimes dangerous!) trips to Chiyo's summer home, and more!

The anime series was directed in 2002 by Hiroshi Nishikiori (Trinity Seven, I’m Gonna be an Angel!, GAD GUARD), with Ichiro Okouchi (Negima!, CODE GEASS: Lelouch of Rebellion) in charge of series composition. Production was handled by J.C.Staff (Honey and Clover, Nodame Cantabile, Detective Opera Milky Holmes).

Azumanga Daioh will soon be released on home video as part of its Sentai Selects line of classic animated features, in both dubbed and subtitled formats.
