Sentai Filmworks Gets Loud With “Anonymous Noise”

HOUSTON, MARCH 15, 2017 – Sentai Filmworks rocks it out with their latest acquisition, Anonymous Noise! Based on the manga written by Ryoko Fukuyama and currently running in the bimonthly comic anthology Hana to Yume, Anonymous Noise is an exciting addition to Sentai’s Spring 2017 anime lineup!

Blessed with a beautiful voice, Nino only sings for one reason: to be found. Nino finds herself looking for two boys who left her without reason, Momo and Yuzu. By chance, all three of them end up in the same high school, and Nino discovers that her singing isn’t in vain. As they rediscover their bonds, the group realizes that time changes many things, and sometimes certain things can’t be repaired.

The series will be directed by Hideya Takahashi (Keijo!!!!!!!!), with sound direction by Takayuki Yamaguchi (Matoi the Sacred Slayer), and series composition by Deko Akao (Flying Witch, Urara Meirocho). Brain’s Base (My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU, Amnesia) will be in charge of animation production.

Anonymous Noise is scheduled for an April 2017 release in Japan. It will soon be available to stream on select digital outlets for the Spring 2017 simulcast season, with a home video release to follow.

Sentai Filmworks Licenses Rumiko Takashi’s RIN-NE 3

HOUSTON, MARCH 16, 2017 – Get ready to ride the Wheel of Reincarnation once more in Sentai Filmworks’ latest addition to the Spring 2017 anime lineup: RIN-NE 3. Rinne Rokudo, Rokumon, and Sakura Mamiya are back for more misadventures in a story that pairs school life with the afterlife.

Saving lost souls on the tightest budget known to man is only a day’s work for half-human, half-Shinigami kind-of-thing Rinne! Together with the almost too-collected Sakura and his black cat Rokumon, life continues as normal as Rinne helps guide the dead to their final rest. However, new transfers are never a good sign, and a popular fortune teller ends up at Rinne and Sakura’s school as their new teacher. Things get chaotic when a strange girl wielding a scythe makes an appearance, and Rinne realizes that he might discover a major piece surrounding the mystery of his past.

Based on the original manga by famed manga-ka Rumiko Takahashi (Inuyasha, Maison Ikkoku, Ranma ˝), the series will be directed by Hiroshi Ishiodori (RIN-NE; Kiss Him, Not Me). Brain’s Base (Natsume’s Book of Friends, My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU) returns to handle animation production for the third season of RIN-NE.

RIN-NE 3 is scheduled for an April 8th release in Japan. It will soon be available to stream on select digital outlets for the Spring 2017 simulcast season with a home video release to follow.

Eureka Seven Hi-Evolution Announcement
April 3, 2017

Bandai Visual Co., Ltd., a leader in the development and production of Japanese animation, announced at Anime Boston, the largest anime convention in the Northeast United States, that the newest project of the Eureka Seven franchise is now under production. This new project, in conjunction with animation studio BONES, is the 3-part movie entitled Eureka Seven: Hi-Evolution

Eureka Seven Hi-Evolution Releases

It has been almost 12 years since the original TV series came out. The new movie will capture the story of Eureka and Renton. At Anime Boston, Chief Producer Masahiko Minami of the project (also the President of animation studio BONES), announced that Part 1 of the trilogy will be released in theaters this coming fall 2017 in Japan. Part 2 and Part 3 will be released in 2018 and 2019, respectively.

Overseas releases in territories such as US, Australia, UK, France, Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand are also planned. Also during the panel, Minami showed new setting and character art featuring Hammer Head, Devil Fish, Eureka, Adrock, and Nirvash. Funimation will handle the US release. Further details regarding “Eureka Seven: Hi Evolution” will be announced shortly.

Synopsis

Ten years ago, the major earth-shaking “First Summer of Love” event occurred. Renton, who lost his father during the event, now attends the army school of the United Federation of Predgio Towers located in the border town of Bellforest. Because his late father is still praised, Renton feels something is lacking as he continues with his ordinary, boring days.
Then one day, Nirvash, the world’s oldest LFO, appears in front of him and a girl named Eureka emerges from the cockpit. This was the beginning of the future of humans and Scub Coral, another intelligent lifeform.

Was this encounter all just a coincidence? Or was it fate? Where will Renton and Eureka’s journey end?

Sentai Filmworks to Release “Beyond the Boundary” Movies in Summer 2017

HOUSTON, APRIL 4, 2017 – Sentai Filmworks is proud to announce the North American release of Kyoto Animation’s Beyond the Boundary films to home video. Both parts of the 2015 theatrical saga, Beyond the Boundary -I'LL BE HERE-: Past and Beyond the Boundary -I'LL BE HERE-: Future, will be released in the summer of 2017 on DVD and Blu-ray.

The first movie, Beyond the Boundary -I'LL BE HERE-: Past, is a re-telling of the original 2013 anime series, recounting the events surrounding bespectacled beauty Mirai Kuriyama and an immortal, half-human boy named Akihito Kanbara. As a Spirit World warrior, Mirai uses the rare gift (and curse) that is using her blood as a weapon to slay supernatural monsters known as youmu.

The second film, Beyond the Boundary -I'LL BE HERE-: Future, occurs one year after the events of the original series. Mirai has lost her memories, and Akihito separates himself from her in an attempt to protect her from her painful past. Despite the heartache it brings him, Akihito is determined to protect Mirai's happiness as she moves through life as a normal human being - but when dark forces stir, she may be forced back to the front lines in the fight against the youmu, and re-open the wounds of her past.

Sentai Filmworks Licenses “Love, Chunibyo and Other Delusions!: Rikka Version”

HOUSTON, APRIL 4, 2017 – The world looks different through the eyes (though usually just one eye...) of a true chunibyo in Sentai Filmworks’ newest acquisition: Kyoto Animation’s Love, Chunibyo and Other Delusions!: Rikka Version. The movie is a fresh retelling of the original Love, Chunibyo, & Other Delusions TV series, told from the point of view of the Tyrant Eye herself, Rikka Takanashi.

Chunibyo, an “ailment” of flights of fancy or perceived grandeur, can often strike Japanese youth in middle school, but for high-schooler Rikka Takanashi, her battles against supernatural forces are very real. In this retelling of the original TV series, the spunky and fearless (but often clueless) RIkka brings us her own spin on the saga between herself and the former “Dark Flame Master,” Yuta Togashi.

Sentai Filmworks plans to release Love, Chunibyo and Other Delusions!: Rikka Version with an English dub to home video in 2017.
