We talked about how it was the end of the line for Sakura Trick as the series drew to a close with its manga back in 2017. Sentai Filmworks brought out the TV anime adaptation back in 2015 on DVD and Blu-ray but its trailer was relegated to home video releases only. That’s been fixed recently on their YouTube channel with the trailer there now. The series is still in print on Blu-ray but the DVD is no longer available while the streaming is still on HIDIVE for those interested in checking it out.
Check out our full season review of the anime here!
The winter 2014 series was animated by Studio Deen with Kenichi Ishikura directing with character designs by Kyuta Sakai.
The series, created by Tachi, has been running since 2011 and has had eight graphic novel compilation released.
Plot Concept: Haruka and Yuu have been best friends forever and they’ve always sat next to each other in class since… well, since they were just girls in junior high anyway. But on their first day of high school, they’re stunned to learn that the new seating plan has them on opposite sides of the classroom! So, since everyone knows that long distance relationships won’t work unless the parties involved put extra effort into it, they decide they need to do something extra special to permanently seal their friendship. However, deciding to kiss each other awakens a whole new level of feelings, and it doesn’t help that some of their classmates seem to be ‘involved” in similar circumstances. So what’s a girl to do when her best girl friend suddenly seems more like a girlfriend? It’s a life lesson that the school curriculum isn’t normally prepared to teach, except maybe in French class, and our two young heroines are about to get a private education you’ll never forget! Discover the truth about the birds and the… er… birds, as two young ladies learn to deal with the pros and cons of intramural osculation in SAKURA TRICK!
