Sentai Filmworks has acquired twp new anime series:

HOUSTON, SEPTEMBER 28, 2016 – The voice acting, or seiyu, business is no joke in Sentai Filmworks’ newest acquisition, Girlish Number. Based on the light novel written by Wataru Watari (My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU) with color illustrations by QP:flapper (Celestial Method, MM!), this new series with a manga adaptation currently running in Dengeki G’S Comic is an exciting addition to Sentai’s Fall 2016 anime lineup.

 

College student Chitose Karasuma is determined not to do boring things as she enters the adult world. To this end, this bad-mannered beauty barges into a facility that trains would-be voice actors and actresses, somehow landing a job at “Number One Produce,” a seiyu agency managed by her older brother, Gojo. In Chitose’s mind, she’s poised for greatness, but finds herself at a loss when she continues to only get minor roles. As she clashes with other girls in the agency, including a cunning airhead and a girl with a Kansai accent, Chitose is about to learn that there’s more to succeeding in this competitive industry than she imagined.

 

The series was directed by Shota Ihata (animation director for Tiger & Bunny the Movie: The Rising), with animation production by diomedea (Kantai Collection, Squid Girl, Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE!).

 

Girlish Number is scheduled for an October 2016 broadcast in Japan. It will soon be available on select digital outlets with a home video release to follow.

HOUSTON, SEPTEMBER 28, 2016 – High-flying otherworldly adventures abound in Sentai Filmworks’ newest acquisition for the Fall 2016 anime season, FLIP FLAPPERS. This original series by Studio 3Hz (Dimension W, Celestial Method) follows two very different girls as they journey into the world of “Pure Illusion.”

 

Cocona is a model honor student, cautious and slow to embrace new opportunities. This makes life complicated when a mysterious girl named Papika suddenly appears, fearlessly searching for a wish-granting crystal called the “Shard of Mimi.” When fates collide and they’re given the ability to transform into powerful fairy-like beings, where will the dangerous journey into “Pure Illusion” take them?

 

Kiyotaka Oshiyama directed the series with Takashi Kojima debuting as chief animation director and character designer, and TO-MAS SOUNDSIGHT FLUORESCENT FOREST in charge of music.

 

FLIP FLAPPERS is scheduled for an October 2016 broadcast in Japan. It will soon be available on select digital outlets with a home video release to follow.
