Sentai Filmworks isn’t slowing down with its anime license acquisitions as they’ve sent out word that they’ve picked up the rights to So, I Can’t Play H!. The series, called Dakara Boku wa H ga Dekinai in Japan, will be hitting digital distribution as well as a home video release next year that will be defined by how well the simulcast does in viewership. The show is based on the novels by Pan Tachibana and is directed by Takeo Takahashi (Rozen Maiden, Spice and Wolf) with series composition by Naruhisa Arakawa (Listen to Me, Girls. I am Your Father!, Upotte!!), character designs by Kanetoshi Kamimoto (Burst Angel, Taisho Baseball Girls) and music by Cher Watanabe (Prince of Tennis II).
Plot Concept: NEVER make a deal with a wet goddess you’ve only just met. That’s a lesson Ryosuke Kaga learns the hard way when he foolishly agrees to let Lisara Restole use some of his “essence” to stay in this world. Because despite her smoking hot appearance, Lisara’s actually a Shinigami, a Goddess of Death. However, she DOESN’T steal years off his life like any decent Shinigami would do. Oh no, instead she sucks him dry of something much more perverse by leeching off his lecherous spirit and draining his ability to enjoy… er… the things that teenage boys normally spend most of their time thinking about! And now that he’s been de-debased and de-debauched by her un-dirty trick, the poor regenerated degenerate’s only hope of getting his licentiousness renewed is to join the queen of mental-clean on her quest, since when she leaves our mortal plane he regains his normal immorality! But the termination of the probation of his reprobation isn’t guaranteed, because Goddesses of Death can be really harsh mistresses and it’s going to be anything but easy to go back to being sleazy in So, I Can’t Play H!
