Enter Michael Hanagata, manager of MIX JUICE, a struggling girl band that’s so desperate for a break that they’ll do just about anything to be seen. Do they really mean… anything?

In fact, Kurihara does things outside the realm of a typical high school girl… like secretly following him, taking pictures of everything he does, and collecting anything he happens to discard and drop. The funny thing? Despite being considered rather cute by most girls, Momo is relatively inexperienced with the opposite sex, explaining why he misses the warning signs of her fixation. However, now that he and Kurihara are going out, is it possible that a little obsession might not be such a bad thing? Love can be strange, and it’s about to get even stranger in MOMOKURI!

She’s even humble and polite! However, if Umaru’s classmates could see her in the privacy of her home, they wouldn’t even recognize her. Once she’s inside the door, the pretty clothes come off, the orange hamster hood goes on, and it’s time to pig-out on snack foods, binge-watch television, and play violent video games! This version of Umaru is everything that the public Umaru isn’t: she whines, rolls on the floor, leaves messes all over the apartment, and makes life miserable for her poor older brother, Taihei. Even the most guarded secrets have a way of being found out, and, as Umaru becomes even more obnoxious and outrageous, her two lives are bound to collide in disastrous fashion in HIMOUTO! UMARU-CHAN!

Kraken Releasing is unleashing GARO


Speaking at the Monsterama fantasy and horror convention in Atlanta, Georgia, Kraken Releasing’s Matt Greenfield revealed that the company’s next major release will be the first installments in Japan’s dark horror/fantasy/martial arts live-action mega-franchise GARO. First launched on October 7, 2005, the original live action TV series, GARO (Fanged Wolf,) quickly set itself apart from other Japanese fantasy series with its darker themes, adult content and spectacular fight scenes, unleashing a non-stop stream of GARO television series, feature films, collectibles and videogames. Often described as the closest thing ever made to a live action anime, GARO has gone on to become a major force in the Japanese entertainment industry, and Kraken Releasing is very honored to be the first to bring the epic live action saga to North America, beginning with GARO (Fanged Wolf) in 2017.           


Where there is light, shadows lurk and fear reigns

Yet by the Blade of Knights, Mankind was given Hope

 

For thousands of years, mankind has been under attack by an ancient race of demons, nightmarish creatures that feed off the darkness in men’s souls and enter our world seeking bodies to possess. Against these Horrors, the human race has just one hope: the enchanted weapons and armor of the Makai Knights, a secret legion of warriors, priests and magic users who stand as humanity’s last line of defense. Created by famed film and video game designer/director Keita Amemiya (Zeram, Onimusha 2, Kamen Rider Black) and directed by Amemiya and pantheon of Japan’s top action and horror directors including Makoto Yokoyama (Power Rangers,) Kengo Kaji (Tokyo Gore Police, Marvel’s Ironman-Rise Of The Technovore,) and Ryu Kaneda (Parasite Dr. Suzunne, Video Girl Ai,) GARO’s amazing battle sequences, stunning special effects and complex multi-character storyline make it an epic unlike anything you have seen before.               

 

GARO (Fanged Wolf) will be released in 2017, with future installments in the GARO franchise to follow.

Sentai Filmworks aquires Little Busters EX!


Sentai Filmworks is proud to announce its acquisition of Little Busters EX. Adapted from the visual novel Little Butsters! Ecstacy, this eight-episode OVA series expands on one high school boy’s adventures into a world that isn’t always what it seems to be.

 

This reimagining of the Little Busters storyline pits protagonist Riki Naoe against familiar faces such as Saya Tokido, a treasure hunter in hiding from an elusive group known as the Dark Executives, and Kanata Futaki, young chairwoman of the so-called “Public Morals Committee” who seems to have a sinister agenda of her own.

 

Little Busters EX was directed by Yoshiki Yamakawa (Little Busters!, Hatsukoi Limited), with series composition by Michuru Shimada (Little Busters!, Shugo Chara!). J.C. Staff, the same studio that produced Tantei Opera Milky Holmes, A Certain Magical Index, and Golden Time, helmed animation production.
