American distributor also licensed Code Geass: Shikkoku no Renya and Nichijou mangas.
North American anime distributor Bandai Entertainment has announced that they have acquired the anime series Nichijou: My Ordinary Life and GOSICK.
The announcement was made on Saturday on Bandai Entertainment’s panel during Otakon.
Nichijou. While the title suggests a story of simple, everyday school life, the contents are more the opposite. The setting is a strange school where you may see the principal wrestle a deer or a robot’s arm hide a rollcake. However there are still normal stories, like making a card castle or taking a test you didn’t study for. (Synopsis from MyAnimeList.net)
The anime was produced by Kyoto Animation & premiered in Japan on April 03, 2011, and is still on-going. It is also available via web streaming on Crunchyroll in selected territories.
GOSICK takes place in 1924 in a small, made-up European country of Sauville. The story centers on Kazuya Kujo, the third son of a Japanese Imperial soldier, who is a transfer student to St. Marguerite Academy, where urban legends and horror stories are all the rage. There he meets Victorique, a mysterious yet beautiful and brilliant girl who never comes to class and spends her days reading the entire content of the library or solving mysteries that even detectives can’t solve.

The anime was produced by Bones & premiered in Japan on December 27, 2010 and the series ended on July 02, 2011. It is also available via web streaming on Crunchyroll in selected territories, including the Philippines.
The anime distributor also announced that they have licensed the Nichijou and Code Geass: Shikkoku no Renya mangas.
Shikkoku no Renya manga is set in the same Code Geass history as the anime series, but in Japan’s historical Edo era. The story begins when the 17-year-old Renya with a mechanical left arm and shuriken-throwing skills, encounters a mysterious, perpetually young woman named Reifu C.C.
