King Records brought out a complete Blu-ray box set for the Nagasarete Airantou anime series two years ago as a part of its 10th-anniversary and now that series is expanding its distribution to North America thanks to Discotek Media. The twenty-six episode series saw a home video release earlier this year and now the folks at AsianCrush have lined up the show for streaming through Amazon Prime. Prime viewers can watch it for free in its original Japanese language with English subtitles while those without can purchase episodes for 0.99 cents each or the full season for $20.99, both of which are SD donly.
Directed by Hideki Okamoto based on the series composition by Mamiko Ikeda, it comes from the manga by Takeshi Fujishiro. Naoto Hosoda served as the character design with animation production by studio feel. The leading cast includes Hiro Shimono as Ikuto Touhouin and Yui Horie as Suzu.
Plot Concept: Following an argument with his father, Ikuto runs away from home. Along the way he boards a cruise ship and is knocked overboard in the ensuing storm. After drifting away out to sea, he eventually washes ashore on an island named “Airanto” by the locals. The island is surrounded by whirlpools making any attempt to escape impossible, and likely life-threatening. Only women reside on this island, putting Ikuto in the unique position where nearly every person around him sees him as prime husband material. Will Ikuto be able to adapt to life on this uncharted island with women fighting over him, sometimes literally! – at every single turn?
