    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

    SENTAI FILMWORKS ANNOUNCES
    LICENSE OF NO. 6

    Houston, TX, August 03, 2011: Sentai Filmworks today confirmed the latest in its recent string of anime series acquisitions by announcing the company’s acquisition of the futuristic thriller No. 6. Based on the manga written by Atsuko Asano and illustrated by Hinoki Kino, the 11 episode post-apocalyptic mystery anime is the first series directed by storyboard and opening animation master Kenji Nagasaki (Kiba, Mobile Suit Gundam 00,) with series script duties being handled by Seishi Minakami (Heaven’s Memo Pad, Living For The Day After Tomorrow,) and character designs by Satoshi Ishino (Excdel Saga, Puni Puni Poemy.)

    In a near future world after the last great war, most of mankind now lives in a handful of city states. There, for the privileged elite, life should be perfect. But for young Shion, the only thing perfect has been the nightmare his life has become since letting a strange boy named Nezumi shelter for the night in his apartment. Banished to the outskirts of the city and stripped of all privileges for helping the mysterious stranger, Shion’s personal danger only compounds when his inquiry into a new series of mysterious deaths results in his being arrested on suspicion of murder! But even as Shion is being sent to the city’s Correctional Institute, the long missing Nezumi reappears to rescue him! Now, on the run, the two young men have only one chance at survival: uncover the mysterious secrets that lie at the sinister heart of City Number 6!

    No. 6is currently airing digitally on Crunchyroll, and will soon be available through other digital outlets with a home video release of the series to follow next year.

    Another license for Sentai and not a bad pick-up. I'm currently watching this series via CR. I'm sure I will decide on the home video release when the time comes.

      I put No. 6 on my wishlist 4 days ago and now I have to take it off. Damn you, Sentai !

      But I mean that in a nice way. I like the series thus far and will consider purchasing it next year if it continues to meet my expectations.

        This is why Sentai is my favorite company right now. They announce shows that are interesting and risky and they get them out quickly at a decent price. Well done, Sentai. Keep it up!

          Well No. 6 is indeed interesting and risky so it's a solid pickup for Sentai in my view.

            Ha! Right after I post in the discussion thread, I see this thread.

            It's alright so far, but I can't say I'm committed to buying No. 6 just yet.

              I have yet to try No.6, but I do like the idea of seeing them license a series that's currently streaming on CR. Maybe if I'm lucky, they'lll pick up a bit more. You know, give us a second wave.

                  I guess that means Funi's Noitamina contract is up? Not like it wasn't obvious before...

                      Good. Their turnaround time has become ridiculous.

                          I plan to check this series out on Crunchyroll soon. From what I hear, it is very good.

                            I've only seen 3 episodes thus far but it is my second favorite show of the season behind Usagi Drop.

                              Not the end of world for me if completely true. For me it's more important to get the properties licensed AND released in a (somewhat) timely fashion.
