FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Sentai Acquires “I’m Quitting Heroing”

HOUSTON, TXMarch 8, 2022 — Sentai announced today that it acquired exclusive rights to fantasy anime series I’m Quitting Heroing, based upon the light novel by Quantum with original character design from Hana Amano. Sentai’s licensed territories include North America, Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa, the Netherlands, Scandinavia and Nordic Countries, Spain, Portugal, Central and South America, the Middle East and North Africa.

After saving humanity from the despicable Demon King, Leo Demonhart does not earn a hero’s standing. Instead, he is regarded with suspicion and hostility by those he fought to protect. Treated as a pariah with nowhere else to turn, exiled Leo seeks a position in the army of his former nemesis! But the army is not what it once was before its defeat at Leo’s hands, so to maintain his new position, Leo must whip the forces back into fighting shape.

Produced by EMT Squared (Assassin’s Pride, Love Tyrant, A Destructive God Sits Next to Me, Bokuhaka), the series is directed by Yu Nobuta and Hisashi Ishii (directors of Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear) with series composition from Shigeru Murakoshi (scriptwriter forDororoand Kakegurui, series composition for Zombieland Saga). The light novel and manga that inspired the anime are published in North America by Kadokawa.

The anime stars Kensho Ono (Tanaka-kun is Always Listless, Kuroko no Basket, Seraph of the End: Vampire Reign) as Leo Demonhart, Kaede Hondo (BOFURI: I Don't Want to Get Hurt, so I'll Max Out My Defense., Wandering Witch: The Journey of Elaina, Zombieland Saga) as Echidna, Shizuka Itoh (Hayate the Combat Butler, High School DxD, Jormungand) as Shutina, Hitomi Owada (The Demon Girl Next Door, SHIROBAKO, TONIKAWA: Over the Moon For You) as Lili, Yumi Uchiyama (Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation, Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World-, March Comes In Like a Lion) as Mernes and Tetsu Inada (Kill la Kill, My Hero Academia, Tsubasa RESERVoir CHRoNiCLE: Spring Thunder Chronicle) as Edvard.

Sentai will stream I’m Quitting Heroing exclusively on HIDIVE, its direct-to-consumer streaming service, with a home video release to follow.

GKIDS Acquires North American Rights to A Slate of Makoto Shinkai Titles

“5 CENTIMETERS PER SECOND,” “CHILDREN WHO CHASE LOST
VOICES,” “THE PLACE PROMISED IN OUR EARLY DAYS”, AND “VOICES OF A DISTANT STAR” TO BE RELEASED ON HOME ENTERTAINMENT PLATFORMS LATER THIS YEAR


GKIDS, the acclaimed producer and distributor of animation for adult and family audiences, announced today it has acquired the North American distribution rights for a slate of four titles from acclaimed writer/director Makoto Shinkai, whose previous films Your Name. and Weathering With You set box office records both in Japan and around the world. Titles in the slate include the visionary director’s debut feature THE PLACE PROMISED IN OUR EARLY DAYS (2004), the breathtaking love story 5 CENTIMETERS PER SECOND (2007), the epic fantasy adventure CHILDREN WHO CHASE LOST VOICES (2011), and Makoto Shinkai’s directorial debut short film VOICES OF A DISTANT STAR (2002). All titles will be released on home entertainment platforms by GKIDS later this year, featuring both their original Japanese language versions as well as English dubbed versions.

GKIDS previously handled North American distribution for Weathering With You, the most recent feature film from Makoto Shinkai, which debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2019, before going on to become both a box office and critical success.

“We are thrilled to represent these vital early films from Makoto Shinkai,” said GKIDS’ President David Jesteadt. “They display the astounding visuals and emotional stories of longing and human connection that have made him one of the most exciting and important directors in animation today, and we look forward to reintroducing them to fans old and new.”

THE PLACE PROMISED IN OUR EARLY DAYS

The feature film debut from Makoto Shinkai, the acclaimed director of Weathering With You and Your Name., is a haunting and beautiful story of friendship and loss, with stunning visuals and the emotional approach to science-fiction that would become the director’s trademark. In an alternate post-war Japan, three teenagers become obsessed with a mysterious tower across the Union border, which reaches far into the sky. Hiroki and Takuya work on a makeshift airplane, which they promise their friend Sayuri they will use to visit the tower together someday, but she disappears before it is completed. Several years later, the tower suddenly activates, starting a phenomenon that threatens the world. And the young men now discover their long-lost friend Sayuri may hold the key to it all…

5 CENTIMETERS PER SECOND

Young love, missed connections, and unrequited feelings collide in a romance from Makoto Shinkai, the visionary director of Weathering With You and Your Name. Told in three vignettes, 5 Centimeters per Second: A Chin of Short Stories About Their Distance, explores the joys and heartache of falling in love set against the backdrop of the breathtaking visuals that define Shinkai’s work. Takaki yearns to spill his heart out for childhood crush Akari, but their families move away before any feelings can fully blossom. They stay in touch, but eventually drift apart with school and new friends to distract them. As the seasons pass, Takaki navigates his relationships while haunted by all the things he left unsaid with Akari, his first love.

CHILDREN WHO CHASE LOST VOICES

From Makoto Shinkai, the visionary director of Weathering With You and Your Name. Children who Chase Lost Voices is an epic fantasy adventure in a world of ancient gods. Asuna is an introvert who prefers spending her time listening to a radio left by her deceased father. One day, she hears an odd song that resonates in her heart unlike anything else. It leads to a chance encounter with a mysterious boy, who transports Asuna to Agarthaa land of legend where the dead can be brought back to life. Compelled by the song and the boy, Asuna journeys through the mythical lands, but hostile warriors and ghastly creatures will stop at nothing to prevent Asuna from uncovering the secrets of their world.

VOICES OF A DISTANT STAR

Several years into the future, alien invaders threaten the safety of Earth. Mikako joins the global forces to defend the planet, but leaves behind her middle school crush, Noboru. They stay connected through emails even while their lives diverge. The galactic war soon sends Mikako further out into space where the time it takes to send and receive messages grows longer. As years start to pass between emails, Mikako and Noboru each grapple with unspoken feelings while hoping for the next message. Voices of a Distant Star is an emotionally-gripping sci-fi tale from Makoto Shinkai that offers an early look into his directorial vision before global blockbusters Weathering With You and Your Name.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Sentai Snaps Up “The Executioner and Her Way of Life”

HOUSTON, TXMarch 10, 2022 — Sentai announced today that it acquired exclusive global rights (excluding Asia) to fantasy series The Executioner and Her Way of Life, based on the award-winning yuri light novel by Mato Sato.

When interdimensional travelers from an otherworldly land known as “Japan” appear, they often bring death and destruction. It’s up to Executioners like Menou to track and exterminate the Lost Ones before they wreak havoc. When Menou encounters a beguiling Lost One named Akari, it’s bloody business as usual… until Menou discovers Akari can cheat death, that is. Even so, Menou has a job to do, and she is committed to her executioner’s mission come hell or high water — provided her newly stirring feelings don’t get in the way.

Produced by J.C.Staff (Is it Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?, The Demon Girl Next Door, Food Wars!), the series is directed by Yoshiki Kawasaki (assistant director, Ascendance of a Bookworm) with series composition from Shogo Yasukawa (Chivalry of a Failed Knight, Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure, A Certain Scientific Railgun T). Michiru (Mitsuboshi Colors, KOKKOKU, Given) provides the series’ musical score. Mili (Ghost in the Shell: SAC_2045, Goblin Slayer, Gleipnir) performs the OP, “Paper Bouquet,” while ChouChou (Girls und Panzer, Tsurune, Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya) sings the ending theme, “Touka Serenade.”

The series stars Iori Saeki (Nekopara, ORESUKI Are you the only one who loves me?, Adachi and Shimamura) as Menou and Moe Kahara (How a Realist Hero Rebuilt the Kingdom) as Akari Tokito. The Executioner and Her Way of Life light novel was awarded the grand prize at the GA Bunko Awards in 2018. The light novel series is published in English by Yen Press.

Sentai will stream The Executioner and Her Way of Life exclusively on HIDIVE, its direct-to-consumer streaming service, with a home video release to follow.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Sentai Summons “The Demon Girl Next Door” Season 2

HOUSTON, TXMarch 15, 2022 — Sentai announced today that it acquired exclusive rights to The Demon Girl Next Door Season 2, the follow-up to 2019’s comedy series of the same name that devilishly turned the magical girl genre on its head (and stuck on horns for good measure). Sentai’s license includes North America, Australia, New Zealand, UK, Ireland, South Africa, the Netherlands, Scandinavia and Nordic Countries, Spain, Portugal, Central & South America and French and German-speaking territories. The series will stream as part of the Spring 2022 simulcast season exclusively on HIDIVE, where fans can enjoy both seasons.

Our favorite supernatural powerhouse, Shamiko, AKA Shadow Mistress Yuko, aims to break the curse placed on her family by the Clan of Light. Along the way, she forms an unlikely allegiance with Momo, a rival from the Light Clan! They’ll need to work together to find another magical girl who’s gone mysteriously missing, and what this? There’s a dangerous force lurking somewhere in the city, plus Shamiko’s mysterious father might be closer than she thinks? Looks like Shamiko and Momo will have their hands full in this latest installment of The Demon Girl Next Door!

The Demon Girl Next Door Season 2 is directed by Hiroaki Sakurai (The Demon Girl Next Door, Maid-Sama!, The Disastrous Life of Saiki K.) with animation from studio J.C.STAFF (Flying Witch, Is it Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?, Toradora!). Ochi Keichiro (My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU Climax!, The Quintessential Quintuplets, Hinamatsuri) handles series composition while Mai Otsuka (Non Non Biyori, This Art Club Has a Problem!, Shakugan no Shana: Season I) provides character design. The manga’s English-language release is by Seven Seas Entertainment.

The series stars Konomi Kohara (Kaguya-sama: Love is War, Asobi Asobase, Mushoku Tensei: Jobless Reincarnation) as Yuko “Shamiko” Yoshida, Akari Kito (Demon Slayer, TONIKAWA: Over the Moon For You, Adachi and Shimamura) as Momo Chiyoda, Minami Takahashi (Food Wars!, FLIP FLAPPERS, Kase-san and Morning Glories) as Lilith and Tomoyo Takayanagi (Asteroid in Love, Umamusume: Pretty Derby, Those Snow White Notes) as Mikan Hinatsuki.

Sentai will stream The Demon Girl Next Door Season 2 exclusively on HIDIVE, its direct-to-consumer streaming service, with a home video release to follow.

A small correction to the Sgt. Frog Season 2 slide.

The dub ends with episode 78, not episode 79. 78 also has a dubbed preview for 79.

A Gundam model has been smashed with a hammer as recompense for the error.

Adult Swim Celebrates 25th Anniversary of Toonami, Orders Two New ‘FLCL’ Seasons and ‘Housing Complex C’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Adult Swim has ordered two new seasons of “FLCL” as well as the new anime series “Housing Complex C” in honor of the 25th anniversary of Toonami, Variety has learned exclusively.

The two new “FLCL” seasons are titled “FLCL: Grunge” and “FLCL: Shoegaze,” both of which are currently in production. “Grunge” is directed by Hitoshi Takekiyo and animated by MontBlanc Pictures. “Shoegaze” is directed by Yutaka Uemura and animated by Production I.G x NUT.

“What better time to announce two new seasons of ‘FLCL’ and ‘Housing Complex C’ than on our 25th anniversary,” said Jason DeMarco, creative director of Toonami and senior vice president of action and anime for WarnerMedia. “Adult Swim’s ongoing commitment to support Toonami with new original series is something anime fans can celebrate every day.”

“Housing Complex C” centers around Kimi, who lives in a small, low-cost housing complex located in the seaside town of Kurosaki where trouble seems to follow her wherever she goes, and horrific incidents begin to occur. Is an ancient evil stalking the residents of Housing Complex C?

The series is directed by Yuji Nara with script and original concept by amphibian. The animation studio is Akatsuki. Both “FLCL” seasons and “Housing Complex C” are executive produced by DeMarco and produced by Maki Terashima-Furuta of Production IG USA.

Toonami first launched as a programming block on Adult Swim on March 17, 1997. As part of the anniversary festivities, classic Toonami interstitials and specials will be showcased on air, online and on Adult Swim’s social platforms that look back at key moments in Toonami’s past.

Long-time animated “Toonami: Countdown” hosts T.O.M. (Steve Blum) and S.A.R.A (Dana Swanson) are at the center of Adult Swim’s Toonami celebration. Their characters are featured in “Cosmo Samurai Part 2,” a 4-part anime short along with “The Return,” an all-new 2-part special with custom CGI T.O.M and S.A.R.A storytelling piece premiering Saturday, March 19, and concluding Saturday, March 26.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Sentai Unleashes WIT STUDIO’s “Onipan!”

HOUSTON, TXMarch 17, 2022 — Sentai announced today that it has acquired exclusive rights to WIT STUDIO’s Onipan!, a modern comedy series with a classic Oni-girl twist, for audiences around the world (excluding Asia). The series premieres exclusively on HIDIVE during the Spring 2022 anime season.

Over the centuries, oni (AKA demons of Japanese folklore) got a pretty bad reputation. Now it’s up to three plucky oni kids — sunny Tsutsuji, cool Tsuyukusa and boisterous Himawari — to improve human-oni relations through love, friendship and superpowered underpants!

Onipan! is a production of WIT STUDIO, the acclaimed creative force behind legendary series like Vinland Saga, Attack on Titan, and Ranking of Kings. The original creators of the Onipan! Project include Norihiro Naganuma, who is known for directing Ancient Magus Bride (also serving as the assistant director for Hozuki’s Coolheadedness and Kimi ni Todoke: From Me to You), WIT STUDIO and Shogakukan-Shueisha Productions. Onipan! is directed by Masahiko Ohta (Himouto! Umaru-chan, Yuru Yuri, Minami-ke) with music by Yasuhiro Misawa (Kokoro Connect, How clumsy you are, Miss Ueno., Hinamatsuri) and series composition from Takashi Aoshima (Re-Kan!, No Game, No Life, Love Lab).

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Sentai Acquires Indy Anime Comedy “Kenda Master Ken”

HOUSTON, TX March 17, 2022 — Sentai announced today that it acquired exclusive rights to Kenda Master Ken, the independently produced comedy series from director Maki Ito and Studio Kingyoiro. The series, based on the movie of the same name, will be available to audiences worldwide (excluding Japan).

Kenda Master Ken chronicles the adventures of Ken Tamaki, hotshot practitioner of the traditional Japanese skill toy “kendama.” But kendama is no mere toy. Ken battles rivals, defeats corrupt organizations and even finds love through his favorite pastime. The stakes are high indeed and Ken will have to face his own inner demons if he wants to live to play kendama (or perhaps become a kendama-man!) another day.

The original version of the anime series starred Takeshi Maeda (Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters GX) as Ken Tamaki, Nekomata Yui (Go! Mouseman) as Mitsurugi, Maya Okamoto (Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam) as Saori and Misato (Date A Live) as Tamako.

Sentai will stream Kenda Master Ken exclusively on HIDIVE, its direct-to-consumer streaming service, with a home video release to follow.

Re: Unreleased Licensed U.S. Anime Properties

I was pretty excited for the last two new FLCL seasons but I still haven’t seen them. I just got the DVDs a few weeks ago in the Target sale.

Still will be neat to see what else they can do.

GKIDS Acquires North American Rights to “Panda! Go Panda!”

Early Feature From Legendary Director Isao Takahata and Written By Hayao Miyazaki

Seminal Early Work from Studio Ghibli Co-Founders to be Released Theatrically and on Home Entertainment Platforms in 2022

GKIDS, the acclaimed producer and distributor of animation for adult and family audiences, announced today it has acquired the North American distribution rights for PANDA! GO PANDA!, the 1972 feature directed by Academy Awardâ-nominated Studio Ghibli co-founder Isao Takahata (The Tale of The Princess Kaguya), and written by fellow Academy Award®-winning Studio Ghibli co-founder Hayao Miyazaki (Spirited Away). The film, which was produced by TMS Entertainment, was first released at the height of the “panda craze” of 1972, following the loan of a pair of giant pandas from China to the Ueno Zoo in Japan. Included in the upcoming release are both Panda! Go Panda (1972) and Rainy Day Circus (1973), released collectively as PANDA! GO PANDA! by GKIDS. The film, presented in high definition with newly restored colors, will be released in theaters and on home entertainment platforms this year, in celebration of its 50th anniversary.

“Besides acting as a vital landmark in animation history, Panda! Go Panda! is an exuberant, feel-good story that will have you humming the theme song for days,” said GKIDS’ President David Jesteadt. “The film has never looked better, and we are thrilled to be able to share it with audiences more widely for a huge anniversary milestone.”

SYNOPSIS:
Mimiko is a cheerful young girl who is left on her own while her grandmother is away. When little Panny Panda and his father Papanda stumble into her home, Mimiko welcomes them in as her new family. Adventures ensue as Mimiko discovers the challenges of taking care of her new cuddly friends. Directed by Isao Takahata and based on a concept by Hayao Miyazaki, Panda! Go Panda! is a charming early-career classic from two animation legends before they co-founded the award-winning Studio Ghibli.

Director: Isao Takahata
Writer: Hayao Miyazaki
Country: Japan
Studio: Tokyo Movie Shinsha (Now TMS Entertainment)
Year: 1972
Run time: 75 minutes (including Panda! Go Panda! and Rainy Day Circus)
