FUNimation isn’t the only company to be busy with licenses recently. Sentai Filmworks announced three new anime properties, two of which are debuting in Japan just this month.
The first title, Kokoro Connect, will debut in Japan on July 7th, and will be available for streaming on Crunchyroll. The series is based on a light novel collection by Sadanatsu Anda and features five students in Yamahoshi Academy’s Culture Club. The comedic anime follows their lives after a strange event causes them all to switch bodies. Sentai will release a DVD version sometime next year.
The other simulcast title is Tari Tari, which launched on July 1st and is currently available on Crunchyroll. The story of Tari Tari follows five high school students stuck in the gap between childhood and adulthood. The five adolescents come together to form a new choir club after Konatsu quits the school club and starts her own. Their goal is to become a real ensemble during their final summer together in high school. Like Kokoro Connect, Sentai is planning a home DVD release next calendar year.
Sentai’s third license is for Someday’s Dreamers II Sora (known in Japan as Mahou Tsukai ni Taisetsu na Koto: Natsu no Sora). The series, a spinoff from 2003’s Someday’s Dreamers, follows a new main character named Sora who is accepted for a magic internship in Tokyo. During her internship, she meets a boy who cannot use magic but aspires to become a mage. Someday’s Dreamers II Sora was broadcast in Japan in 2008 and is based on the manga series by Norie Yamada and Kumichi Yoshizuki. Sentai is planning to release the 12-episode series sometime later this year. They released the first series Someday’s Dreamers in April.
