Licensing GET: Sentai Filmworks summons Angel Beats!


Time to have some Mapo Tofu in celebration, because Sentai Filmworks has just announced the North American licensing for Angel Beats! the Jun Maeda-authored Kana Hanazawa-promoting masterpiece.

The show is set to hit in style, with both a DVD and Blu-ray release, as well as an English dub, with a preview of some of the dubbed episodes set for a reveal at Anime Boston.

In case you missed it last year, it's about Purgatory being a fake high school, with a bunch of kids living in it that all have some beef with God, and his representative, Kana Hanazawa, also known as "Angel".

It is with some embarrassment that I will admit to learning how to make Mapo Tofu after watching Angel Beats! (though watching Cooking Master Boy right after almost certainly contributed to that motivation), so Sentai can count me among those interested.

In case you're not interested yet, try checking out the OP below. Personally I prefer the Yui version, but this one's got Angel in it, so hey.
