Here’s some news that will make fans happy as Sentai Filmworks has posted a fun little video to their Twitter feed to announce that they’re doing to be dubbing the School-Live anime series. The show debuted as part of the summer 2015 season. This will have a good ripple effect as Madman Entertainment has the rights for it in Australia while Animatsu is handling the UK release and they’ll likely partake in the dub as well.
The series is based on the manga from writer Norimitsu Kaihou and artist Sadoru Chiba and has eight volumes so far with it being licensed in North America by Yen Press. Kaohou has worked on the screenplay for some anime works before with Guilty Crown: Lost Christmas and doing the series composition for Neppuu Kairiku Bushi Road while also handling the story for one of the Gargantia manga releases and a few others. Sadoru has had a few projects over the years as well, with Heian Zankoku Monogatari, Nobara Sex and The [email protected]: Cinderella Girls – Ensemble!.
The Japanese cast for the series includes Ai Kayano as Sakura Megumi, Inori Minase as Yuki Takeya, Ari Ozawa as Kurumi Ebisuzawa, M.A.O as Yūri Wakasa, Rie Takahashi as Miki Naoki, Juri Kimura as Kei Shidou and Emiri Kato as Taromaru.
Plot concept: Takeya Yuki is in love with the school. For her, it’s a wonderful place, where she enjoys her school activities, especially the activities of her club: School Life Club. The club has Rii-chan as the president, Kurumi-chan as another member, and the teacher, Megu-nee, always there for them. Yes, she is in love with her school… on her mind. Because, for her, the reality of the school and their club’s activities is way too hard to be perceived…
