New additions to acquired titles from Fall 2013, to be available on Home Video next year.
North American anime distributor Sentai Filmworks has announced that they have acquired three new anime titles, which is the slice-of-life anime Meganebu!, the second season of Little Busters, and the action-adventure anime Log Horizon.
You don’t necessarily have to wear rose-colored glasses to get a better view of the world, you just have to wear glasses! At least, that’s the philosophy of Akira Soma, a high school student who breaks humanity into three kinds of people: those wear glasses, those who don’t and girls. After all, if two heads are better than one, then four eyes are clearly superior to two, right? And what other modern invention can serve as both medical aid and fashion accessory while keeping the sun out of one’s eyes and making 3D movies 3D? Akira’s focus on eyewear has so framed his thoughts that he’s formed a Glasses Club at Himaraya Third Technical High School and coerced all his glasses-wearing (and ridiculously good looking) friends to join. Fortunately childhood pal Yukiya, adoring Mitsuki, dreamy Takuma and non-corrective lens wearing Hayato are more than happy to share Akira’s vision of a bespectacled world, even if it sometimes means making a huge spectacle. You won’t believe what happens next when these sexy techs flex their specs in the series that’s guaranteed to hit the top of the eye charts: MEGANEBU!
MEGANEBU! is a Japanese anime series written by Deco Akao, who also written Arakawa Under The Bridge and Mysterious Girlfriend X, and directed by Soubi Yamamoto. Produced by Studio DEEN, and has 12 episodes.
Riki Naoe and his teammates have finally managed their goal of forming a complete baseball team for the Little Busters. Or have they, in fact re-united one? All along there has been something odd going on, a strange sense of déjà vu, and even as the Little Busters finally join together to become a working whole, the personal mysteries and idiosyncrasies that have permeated the school and games slowly begin to coalesce into something unexpected. For as the team falls into their roles, the pieces of the puzzle begin to fall into place. And as Riki begins to learn the secrets behind his narcolepsy, a stunning truth is about to be revealed, one that will change everything. Will the game continue into extra innings, or will it end in sudden death? Riki made the team and his teammates came, but the next pitch may throw everyone in LITTLE BUSTERS! REFRAIN!
Little Busters! Refrain is the second anime adaptation of the Japanese visual novel developed by Key. Director Yoshiki Yamakawa and Scriptwriter Michiru Shimada returns to handle the anime series. Produced by J.C. Staff.
Imagine a MMORPG that has become a global phenomenon, immersing millions of players in its online fantasy world over eleven editions. But what happens when something goes terribly wrong with the twelfth expansion pack, and the hit “role playing game” becomes a deadly “real people in jeopardy” situation as 30,000 players suddenly find themselves pulled permanently into the game’s no longer fictional universe? Trapped in a nightmare where the monsters are real, there are no extra lives and each player’s death means a permanent game over, it quickly becomes clear to eight-year MMORPG veteran Shiroe that the tricks and cheats developed sitting at a keyboard won’t translate into the survival skills required to stay alive. The course of action is obvious: band together and pool talents for mutual protection. Although he’s never been a “real” leader, he’ll have to find the courage to take a small band of players, starting with his friend Naotsugu and the beautiful assassin Akatsuki, and form a new kind of guild. Heroes will be born, leaders will rise and a new legend will be forged as sword and sorcery becomes real in LOG HORIZON!
Log Horizon is an anime adaptation of the Japanese novel series written by Mamare Touno, who also created the anime series Maoyuu Maou Yuusha which was aired this January, with illustrations from Kazuhiro Hara.
The anime adaptation is directed by Shinji Ishihira, who also directs the popular anime series Fairy Tail, and scripts were handled by Toshizo Nemoto, who is also one of the scriptwriters for Kuroko’s Basketball.
As previously announced on recent acquisitions, the titles are set to be available on digital outlets soon, and will be available on home video this 2014.
