Sentai Filmware Stocks Up On New Licenses

1 Sentai feature image

It seems that Sentai Filmware has been a busy bee over the past few weeks getting their hands on as many new licenses as possible. It is still early in 2013 but Sentai has already purchased 5 new anime licenses:

1 tamako marketTAMAKO MARKET – Tamako knows just about everything there is to know about mochi, the traditional Japanese dessert treats.  When she’s not attending her first year of high school, she even invents new flavors and varieties for Tama-ya, her family’s mochi shop.  School and growing up, on the other hand, are some things that she’s still trying to find the right recipe for.  But with the help of her best friends Kanna and Midori, two girls whose parents run businesses in the same shopping district, Tamako’s determined to make the best of things.  It’s complicated though, especially when it comes to emotions and her relationship with her best boy friend Mochizo, whose family runs a rival mochi shop.  And lately, Kanna’s been feeling a little odd about her feelings towards Tamako as well.  And what’s with up with that strange bird fluttering around, the one that speaks fluent Japanese?  It’s all very mysterious and overwhelming, but at least Tamako always has one thing she can count on: No matter if your day’s been good or bad, there’s certain to be something sugary and delicious waiting at the end of every adventure whenever you take a walk through TAMAKO MARKET!


1 sasami-san-at-ganbaranaiSASAMI-SAN@GANBARANAI – The Japanese call them hikikomori – people who’ve become so withdrawn socially that they refuse to leave their homes for weeks and even months at a time.  For Sasami Tsukuyomi, who’s attempting to pass her first year of high school despite being a shut in, it’s more than just a word.  Fortunately though, she lives with her older brother Kamiomi, who just happens to be a teacher at the school Sasami is supposed to attend.  Not to mention, her “Brother Surveillance Tool” which lets her view the outside world via her computer and will, theoretically, allow her to readjust to interfacing with people again.  What it mainly does, however, is let her view her brother’s interactions with the three very odd Yagami sisters, who inexplicably seem to have had their ages reversed and have various types of “interest” in Kamiomi.  And then things start to get really weird…  Magical powers?  Everything turning into chocolate?  Is life via the web warping Sasami’s brain, or is it the universe that’s going crazy?  It looks Sasami will have to take off her pajamas and go out into the “real” world to set things straight in Sasami-san@Ganabaranai!


1 place to placePLACE TO PLACE – Everyone has a circle of friends they hang out with.  But even within a small group there are smaller groups of friends, best friends and, here’s where it gets complicated, boyfriends and girlfriends.  Sometimes relationships just develop in a way where you’re not exactly sure what you are to the other person.  Which is the problem Tsukimi has when it comes to Io.  Io’s as tall and easygoing as Tsukimi is short in both temper and stature, but he also seems to be totally clueless about how she’s starting to feel.  Yet, at times, he’s almost too affectionate.  It’s just confusing and irritating.  And their prankster friends Mayoi and Sakai aren’t much help.  Especially Mayoi, as it gives her one more thing to tease Tsukimi over.  Hime, the fifth member of their usual gang of five isn’t much better, because she’s not really well connected to reality anyway.  Which leaves Tsukimi stuck in a quandary.  Are she and Io just best friends?  And is it worth risking that for what Tsukimi wants?  It’s a puzzle she’ll have to solve as they live from one moment to the next in PLACE TO PLACE.


1 little busterLITTLE BUSTERS – When tragedy struck Riki Naoe as a child, he was rescued from grief over his parent’s deaths when four other kids “recruited” him for their group – the “Little Busters.”  Now in high school, Riki and the other Busters are still fast friends, and though their vision of being heroes for justice may have faded, they’d still do anything for each other.  Which is why Riki is now on TWO special missions.  The not so secret one: recruiting new members so the Busters can form a baseball team.  Preferably FEMALE recruits, as the current dude/babe ratio is an inconvenient 4 to 1.  The OTHER mission, though… That’s the strange one.  Because Riki and Rin, the group’s singular girl, are receiving odd messages, delivered by cats, concerning the existence of a “secret world” and assigning them tasks they have to complete.  Were their youthful dreams of being crusaders not so fanciful after all?  Or is there something even more vital at stake?  Between steeling his courage to talk to girls, dealing with his own narcolepsy and facing his feelings concerning Rin, Riki may just need the strength of a superhero to solve the ultimate mystery of the LITTLE BUSTERS!


1 amnesiaAMNESIA – This story takes place in a fictional town, in a fictional country, in a fictional world.  One morning, a young lady awakens to find that she has lost all her memories prior to that morning.  Her life, her relationships, her very name – all gone.  All that’s left is a cell phone with numbers and names she doesn’t recognize and Orion, a young boy that only she appears to be able to see.  With Olion’s guidance, she struggles to make sense of herself, a boyfriend she doesn’t know and the thousand and one little things that make up a daily life.  But with no memories left, the only alternative is to forge new ones, even if that means leaving old loves behind.


Look for all of these titles later this year from Sentai Filmware
