Sentai Filmworks announces acquisition of HATENKOU YUGI
Sentai Filmworks has announced its acquisition of the 2008 comedy-fantasy anime Hatenkou Yugi. Having been lovingly kicked out of her home with the words, "Don't you wanna see the world a little?" 15-year-old Rahzel Anadis suddenly finds herself traveling from town to town. Her journey is off to a rough start when she's joined by Alzeid, a young man seeking revenge for his father's murder. The two do have a few things in common: they can both use magic, and they both despise each other. Despite their animosity, Rahzel and Alzeid travel together, helping people in other cities and discovering what it really means to "see the world."
The series was directed by Nobuhiro Takamoto (Starry Sky, Beelzebub), with series composition helmed by Yasuhiro Imagawa (Pet Shop of Horrors, Souten no Ken). Studio DEEN (Fate/stay night, When They Cry Kai) was in charge of animation production.
Hatenkou Yugi will soon be available on select digital outlets with a home video release to follow.
