Sentai has licensed two new anime:

HOUSTON, JUNE 29, 2016 – The culinary combat phenomenon, Food Wars!, returns this summer with its highly anticipated second season, Food Wars! The Second Plate.  Sentai Filmworks picked up this sizzling hot series and is making it available for simulcast and streaming through select digital partners.

Food Wars! has proven to be one of the most distinctive franchises in recent history,” says John Ledford, CEO, Sentai Filmworks, “We are extremely proud of its unmatched originality and fantastic blend of action and comedy which has inspired such a passionate fan following.  We are thrilled to launch Food Wars! The Second Plate and look forward to making it available wherever fans choose to enjoy it.”

The 13-episode second season of Food Wars! picks up where the first season left off on the cusp of the contested Fall Selection. Eight of the most talented first-year students of the elite Tohtsuki Academy wage a culinary battle to advance to the next round of the Fall Selection, a kitchen-based showdown that will decide who will rise in the ranks and who will end up on the chopping block. Underdog Soma Yukihira’s cooking may leave his customers begging for another bite, but are his skills enough to face off with opponents as equally talented (and merciless) when it comes to the palate as him?

The team behind the first season returns for the second season, with Yoshitomo Yonetani as director, and Shogo Yasukawa (Chivalry of a Failed Knight) in charge of series composition. Character design was again helmed by Tomoyuki Shitaya with music by Tatsuya Katou. Animation production was handled by J. C. Staff, the same studio responsible for Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? and Flying Witch.

Food Wars! The Second Plate  is scheduled for a July 2016 broadcast in Japan. It will soon be available through select digital outlets with a home video release to follow.

HOUSTON, JUNE 30, 2016Sentai Filmworks has acquired the rights to the slice-of-life romance Momokuri for the Summer 2016 simulcast season.

Yuki Kurihara took a chance one day and confessed her feelings to the boy she liked… and he said “yes”! The boy in question, Shinya Momotsuki (aka Momo-kun) is new when it comes to love, but soon they’re walking home from school, studying, and eating together. There’s just one problem with this otherwise cute couple: Kurihara is so obsessed with her Momo-kun that she’s sneaking photos of him on her phone, freaking out when they touch, and blushing at every adorable thing he does. Can Kurihara’s little heart handle her nearly manic love for her new boyfriend?

The series was directed by Yoshimasa Hiraike (Gugure! Kokkuri-san, Wagnaria!!) with character designs by chief animator Miwa Oshima (Gugure! Kokkuri-san, Anne-Happy). Animation production was handled by Satelight, the same studio responsible for Log Horizon and The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan.

Momokuri  is scheduled for a July 2016 broadcast in Japan. It will soon be available through select digital outlets with a home video release to follow.
