[Release] How to Eat Popcorn 101

Satsunyan here! I’m so sorry we’re delayed etc etc etc, the usual reasons and stuff. But we’ll try to catch up by next year or something like that. Anyway.

MEGA | Direct | Dynasty | GiB Release

We’d also like to formally announce that we’ll be doing Tamamusi’s recently finished 4-koma series, “Heart of the Girl“! It’s about a game app where you must hit on girls and make their heart race to get points and be able to unlock rarer girls, but the catch is, they’re real life girls! How will Nozomi protect her childhood friend Kakoi from being ‘cleared’ by other players?

With our new projects lined up, we’d like do our best to change our release pace as 2017 approaches, so we have made a new Doujins to-do list that you may check here.

Anyhoo, happy holidays, everyone!

School Girls Strikers mobile game to get Anime in Winter 2017!

SGS-Anime-Announcement

In the “new project” niconama that aired last October 25th, 2016, the stream included Director and Producers of the game, with the seiyuu of three of the five main characters, Ishihara Kaori (lead), Hidaka Rina and Ogura Yui. They announced that game will not be ending (as feared by some fans). The game will be continuing as well as it will have additional new characters, and an anime adaption has been announced as well. It is set for the Winter 2017 Anime Season line-up.

mainvisual02_l03 With the key visual released, the show will be animated by JC Staff. It will be directed by Nishikiori Hiroshi ( A Certain Magical Index, Azumanga Daioh) and Yoshioka Takao is supervising the series scripts. It is still not confirmed if the anime will run on a different premise in the same universe as a the game or not.

“The game is set in Goryoukan Academy, a new private senior/junior high school for girls with a vast downtown campus. This highly popular school has “another face” — a secret hidden side. It organizes and trains the special unit Fifth Force to protect the world from invisible supernatural entities known as “Oburi” that are devouring the world. A team of five trained with powers against the Oburi is to be chosen from the student body to perform missions. A new team leader has been appointed to assemble the five students: Miyama Tsubame (CV: Ishihara Kaori), Sumihara Satoka (CV: Hidaka Rina), Yaginuma Io (CV: Sawashiro Miyuki), Sajima Yumi (CV: Hanazawa Kana), Namori Mana(CV: Ogura Yui)” – ANN

 

 

The PV for the anime was also aired in the niconama stream in October.

The OP theme of the anime will be sung by the five main characters, Altile Torte, with the OP Single titled “Mirai-kei Strikers” (Lit. Futuristic Strikers). It will be released in five versions, one version per character including a solo version of the OP song by that specific character + a character song. The ED theme will be sung by Sumihara Satoka (CV: Hidaka Rina) and Namori Mana (CV: Ogura Yui), the same as the OP, it will be released in two versions, a solo version of that specific character + a character song.

The anime’s first episode will be airing on January 6th, 2017 in Tokyo MX.
