Sentai Filmworks grabs The Kawai Complex Guide to Manors and Hostel Behavior


Insert ridiculous long title joke here.

After announcing their license of Haikyuu yesterday, Sentai Filmworks isn't content to just sit back. They're keeping the momentum going with yet another license announcement today in the form of the new anime series The Kawai Complex Guide to Manors and Hostel Behavior (original Japanese title: Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou) based on the manga series of the same name by Ruri Miyahara (Love Lab). 

So now that we know that the series is going to be headed towards us in both digital and physical formats, let's dig into this one shall we? 

The Kawai Complex Guide to Manors and Hostel Behavior will premiere on April 3rd and features some interesting names in the crew. Producing the animation will be studio Brains Base (D-Frag) and sitting in the director's chair will be Shigeyuki Miya (Blood Lad) while Takeshi Konuta (Ace of Diamond, Blood Lad) will be taking care of the series composition. 

In the press release, Sentai Filmworks described the series thusly...

Living away from home can have its perks, especially when you're just a kid: no parents, no rules, no curfew! Add the fact that you just – miraculously - moved in right next to the girl of your dreams and it sounds too good to be true. Naturally, things that sound too good to be true usually are. Kazunari Usa’s independence arrives by way of his parents' new job placement. However, with this newfound freedom come the shackles of responsibility, and his hopes and dreams are soon dashed when confronted with the indecent behavior of his lecherous neighbor, Shirosaki. Usa promised he wouldn’t complain if he could just live on his own... he just didn’t expect so much drama. Not only do Usa and his dream-girl Ritsu attend the same school, but Ritsu’s grandaunt, the landlady Sumiko, tries to give Usa weird relationship advice regarding the two. To top it all off, everything is upended when Usa meets Mayumi, an older, flirty woman that he runs into on the street. Will Usa’s fantasy of a normal life ever become a reality?

Luckily for me this happens to be one of the series that I claimed to review for Japanator this coming season so I'm hoping that it turns out to be a good one!
