Sentai licenses Haikyuu!!; announce July slate


It's that time of the season

Earlier today, Sentai Filmworks & Section23 Films unveiled their release schedule for the month of July. It's a pretty hefty list, and includes titles such as Devil Survivor 2, Photo Kano, Yuyushiki, Snafu, To Love Ru, Gatchaman Crowds, Flowers of Evil and so on -- click here for a full list. While I'm excited for a few of these such as Gatchman, I'm not really sure I want to sit through Flowers of Evil. I realize it's critically acclaimed, but something about that show bored me to tears. I guess it wasn't for everyone.

In perhaps more exciting news, Sentai also announced the acquisition of their latest license. They'll be adding Production I.G's shonen-sports series Haikyuu!! to their catalog. I'm not too familiar with the series but it seems like your typical sports drama featuring an unassuming protagonist trying to make it big in his sport of choice. This time, that happens to be volleyball and it also features a former rival turned teammate, or so I gather. It seems interest enough, so I look forward to checking it out if or when Sentai & Section23 get around to releasing it.
