Romantic comedy anime set to be available in digital outlets soon, home video in 2014.
North American licensing company Sentai Filmworks has announced that they have acquired the romantic comedy anime Outbreak Company.
The announcement was in addition to the previous announcements that licensing company acquired titles like Golden Time, the second season of Infinite Stratos, Kyoukai no Kanata, and the third season of Phi-Brain: Puzzle of Gods.
Shinichi Kanou’s father writes novels and his mother illustrates erotic video games, so perhaps it’s not unexpected that he’d end up as a fan of comics and science fiction. However, rather than channeling his efforts into creating like his parents, he has instead become one of the world’s foremost experts on “moe”, with a staggeringly encyclopedic knowledge of all things cute and adorable in every conceivable form of animation and media. This sort of explains Shinichi’s recruitment as an ambassador for moe to the Holy Eldant Kingdom, a parallel world where things that previously only existed in anime actually exist! So how will a hot blooded young otaku react when dropped into a world with actual cute and adorable elf maids and dragons? More importantly, how will THEY react to this drooling devotee with diplomatic credentials? And even more to the point, exactly WHY does the Japanese government feel that sending someone to represent Japan’s moe interests is a good idea in the first place? Sorry, no spoilers! If you want to learn more, you’ll have to come along for the adventure as the ultimate anime fans’ fanboy fantasy unfurls in OUTBREAK COMPANY! (Synopsis from Sentai Filmworks)
Similar to the previously acquired titles, the anime is set to be available on digital outlets soon, and it is also set to be released on home video next year.
