Look, it’s simple: This world doesn’t need *two* evil organizations! Based on the popular light novel series of the same name, Combatants Will Be Dispatched! is officially headed to Funimation this April as a co-production with KADOKAWA.

From the author of KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on this Wonderful World! comes a comedy isekai series that follows a perverted and scheming member of the Kisaragi Corporation, Combat Agent Six, and Alice, the collected, badass android who constantly makes snarky comments at Six!

Oh, but there’s a twist: the protagonists are the bad guys, and they’re hell-bent on universal domination. Because, honestly, isn’t being evil more fun? Underpaid and overworked, these characters aren’t part of your typical isekai.

We’re also excited to show off the first trailer for the series, which introduces us to Combat Agent Six, Alice and the evil organization we’ll come to know in the series.

Combatants Will Be Dispatched! will be animated by J.C.Staff, known for their work on Toradora! and Food Wars! The novel is out now from Yen Press.

Sentai will distribute the feature in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Latin America and the Netherlands.

Four former heroes are now living quiet, reincarnated lives in present day Kyoto, Japan. They bask in the warm contentment of being ordinary, modern folk without much important to do.

Now the former heroes must band together with their arch nemesis, because it’s do or die for team LAIDBACKERS!

LAIDBACKERS is a production of Studio Gokumi (The Ambition of Oda Nobuna, Atelier Escha & Logy ~Alchemists of the Dusk Sky~). Kiyomitsu Sato (Nintama Rantaro, Play Ball) and Hiroyuki Hashimoto (Is the Order a Rabbit?, Slow Start) both direct the movie with Makoto Uezu (Aura, Aoki Hagane no Arpeggio: Ars Nova Cadenza) in charge of the script. Voice talents include Rina Hidaka (Armed Girl’s Machiavellism, Food Wars!) as Harami, Yumiri Hanamori (Grimoire of Zero, The Price of Smiles) as Kumi, Himika Akaneya (Land of the Lustrous, Dance with Devils) as Mai, Yo Taichi (Akame ga Kill!, Princess Principal) as K, Yumi Uchiyama (GATE, Overlord) as Arnelia and Maria Naganawa (Cells at Work!, Invaders of the Rokujyoma!?) as Ran.

The feature will be available on home video in April 2021.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Acclaimed Anime Series “NANA” Coming to Sentai

HOUSTON, TX — January 26, 2021 — Sentai announced today that it acquired NANA, the 47-episode anime series produced by Madhouse and based on the manga by Ai Yazawa (NEIGHBORHOOD STORY, TENSHI NANKA JA NAI) with 40+ million copies sold. The series has been upconverted from its original format to vivid high definition.
Two twenty-somethings seemingly share nothing in common apart from their first name, but a chance meeting on a train bound for Tokyo sets Nana Komatsu and Nana Osaki on a collision course with destiny. Nana Komatsu, a love-at-first-sight dreamer, aims to find enduring happiness in the big city. Nana Osaki, neo punk rock vocalist, pursues her burning ambitions of musical stardom and worldwide fame. As their fates increasingly intertwine, they each chase their dreams — until the harsh realities of life in big city Tokyo threaten to tear everything apart.

A production of studio Madhouse (No Game, No Life,Parasyte -the maxim-, DEATH NOTE), NANA is directed by Morio Asaka (Chihayafuru,MY Love STORY!!, Cardcaptor Sakura) with series composition by Tomoko Konparu (Blue Spring Ride,Sunday Without God, Glass Mask) and music by Tomoki Hasegawa (Mysterious Girlfriend X, D.N.Angel, Zan Sayonara Zetsubo Sensei). The series stars Romi Park (Land of the Lustrous, Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, Shaman King) as punk-rocker Nana Osaki and KAORI (Kaleido Star, Final Fantasy: Unlimited, Pokémon: Advanced Generation) as the cheerful Nana Komatsu.

Sentai is planning an HD version for release on digital outlets with an HD home video release to follow.

MEGALOBOX 2: NOMAD to Premiere in April 2021 on TOKYO MX & BS11

Teaser Trailer and Visual Revealed
LOS ANGELES – January 27,2021 – TMS Entertainment today announced that MEGALOBOX 2: NOMAD, the highly anticipated sequel to the internationally acclaimed anime series MEGALOBOX, will premiere in April 2021 on Japanese television networks TOKYO MX and BS11.

MEGALOBOX, a series based on Tomorrow’s Joe by Asao Takamori (Ikki Kajiwara) and Tetsuya Chiba, was originally released in 2018 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the original manga title.

The teaser trailer and visuals have also been revealed ahead of the broadcast.

Watch the teaser now: https://youtu.be/bjl0qMgrugQ

The striking teaser visual, drawn by the director Yo Moriyama, shows Joe standing with his gear covering the body full of scars. Seven years after Joe’s reign as the first Megalonia champion, we now find him calling himself Nomad. The accompanying teaser trailer reveals a glimpse of what had happened to Joe after the fateful match with Yuri in MEGALOBOX.

ABOUT MEGALOBOX 2: NOMAD

In the end, “Gearless” Joe was the one that reigned as the champion of Megalonia, a first ever megalobox tournament. Fans everywhere were mesmerized by the meteoric rise of Joe who sprung out from the deepest underground ring to the top in mere three months and without the use of gear. Seven years later, “Gearless” Joe was once again fighting in underground matches. Adorned with scars and once again donning his gear, but now known only as Nomad…

Fruits Basket The Final Season Reveals New Teaser Visual, Emotional Thank-You from Takaya-sensei

We’re not ready for it to end! Thanks to our incredible partners at TV Tokyo, we’re excited to reveal the teaser visual for the upcoming Fruits Basket The Final Season, the final chapter in the full anime adaptation of the Fruits Basket manga.

The gorgeous new visual reveals Tohru Honda in what looks like a state of anguish, back-to-back with Akito Soma, whom Tohru first met in Fruits Basket Season 2. Billed as the main antagonist of the series and the “god” of the zodiac, this teaser sets us up for what is sure to be a very emotional final season.



Also shared with us was a heartfelt message from Fruits Basket mangaka Natsuki Takaya, who shared her thanks for those who helped to make this production happen, and to the fans of the manga and anime for sticking with her:
After two seasons, the Fruits Basket anime is about to enter its final chapter.

I just… Wow. This must have been ton of work for the staff.

I have personal experience with the pressure to keep running, and with what it feels like to encounter all sorts of difficulties along the way, so I’m just full of gratitude and appreciation for everyone involved in the production.

And to all of you readers and viewers, I’ll be honored if you stick with these characters and see which path each of them lands on in the end—as well as where those paths lead.

I hope you’ll enjoy all the final season to the very end.

—Natsuki Takaya
