Madman Entertainment has picked up another license from this past weekend at the Supanova Adelaide convention where they’ve now got the rights to We Without Wings. The series, one that I’m still shocked got a pickup by such mainstream distributors here and abroad, is planned for a 2014 release but no further details were available. The show has seen release in North America through FUNimation on DVD/BD combo in bilingual form, so it’s expected the Australian release will get at least the bilingual DVD release when it gets its full solicitation information.
Based on the visual novel game Oretachi ni Tsubasa wa Nai that was released in 2009, and definitely an eroge game for the PC, We, Without Wings is a series directed by Shinji Ushiro with Takamitsu Kouno serving as the script supervisor on it with studio Nomad providing the animation production.
Plot concept: Timid Takashi wants to escape to an alternate world where he is a heralded knight, but is held back by thoughts of his younger sister and his girlfriend. Part-timer and all-around upbeat guy Shuusuke has a disastrous first encounter with a woman who turns out to be his new co-worker. Handyman Hayato is a hard-boiled loner who has random encounters with two gangs and a girl with a uniform fetish. Throw in plenty of fan-service, random humor, an alternate medieval world, and your narrator DJ Condor, and you get We Without Wings – Under the Innocent Sky.
