ACF 1654: BUSOU SHINKI
Juggling four girls at once is never easy, even when they’re as small as the “goddesses” in Sentai Filmworks newest acquisition: Busou Shinki. Directed by Yasuhito Kikuchi (Infinite Stratos, Jo Jo’s Bizarre Adventures OVA) with series composition by Masahiro Yokotani (Sgt. Frog, Maria Holic) and character designs by Ryouma Ebata and Takahiro Kishida (BTOOOM!, Arjuna).
Busou Shinki will be available soon through select digital outlets with a home video release to follow in 2013.
Synopsis: Some guys wait their entire life to meet the girl of their dreams, but high school freshman Rihito is already living with FOUR of them! And, even more incredibly, they’re (almost) always ready and willing to help him with whatever difficult task their “Master” needs to be handled. So, how did Rihito get to be so lucky? Well, to tell the truth, while Hinna, Anne, Ines and Rene may not be exactly high maintenance, Rihito DOES have to make sure that they get lubricated regularly and have their batteries recharged in a cradle.
But that’s because they’re Shinki: tiny, 6-inch high, customizable androids that are now being sold all over the world. And don’t let their tiny size fool you. These little ladies have more than full-size intelligence and emotions, and since each one would prefer to be Rihito’s favorite, there’s sure to be a little mechanical friction! Get ready for sparks to fly as four battery powered princesses take charge of Rihito’s world in BUSOU SHINKI!
