Made in the Abyss Via Sentai Filmworks

Sentai Filmworks made a few announcements at this year’s Anime Expo. They included some new licenses such as the next installment in the Made in the Abyss film series and another dub on the way. You can take a look at them below.

Made in the Abyss: Dawn of the Deep Soul:

HOUSTON, TX – July 5, 2019 – Sentai Filmworks announced today that it has acquired exclusive rights to Kase-san and Morning Glories, an anime adaptation of the manga series by Hiromi Takashima, for distribution in USA, Canada, UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Latin America, Scandinavia, the Netherlands, Spain and Portugal.

Shy, reserved Yui Yamada is a budding horticulturist who is responsible for caring for her high school’s greenery. While tending to her campus’ morning glories, Yamada has a chance encounter with the vivacious, sporty Tomoka Kase, star of the girl’s track team. Yamada and Kase could not be more different and they have a lot to learn about one another, but as their friendship grows, their feelings begin to blossom into something more…

Kase-san and Morning Glories:

HOUSTON, TX – July 5, 2019 – Sentai Filmworks today announced that it acquired MADE IN ABYSS: Dawn of the Deep Soul, the all new motion-picture adventure that follows the critically acclaimed MADE IN ABYSS films and anime series. The new film is expected to hit US theaters in early 2020.

Dawn of the Deep Soul continues the epic adventure of plucky Riko and Reg who are joined by their new friend Nanachi. Together they descend into the Abyss’ treacherous fifth layer, the Sea of Corpses, and encounter the mysterious Bondrewd, a legendary White Whistle whose shadow looms over Nanachi’s troubled past. Bondrewd is ingratiatingly hospitable, but the brave adventurers know things are not always as they seem in the enigmatic Abyss…

Food Wars! The Third Plate:

HOUSTON, TX – July 5, 2019 – Sentai Filmworks announced today that it has acquired home video rights to the third season of smash hit series Food Wars!, with an English dub slated for release in early 2020. Food Wars! The Third Plate, a 25-episode installment, joins the first and second seasons to continue the culinary adventures of Soma Yukihira at the prestigious Totsuki Academy.

At the Moon Festival, Totsuki Academy’s annual gourmet jubilee, students wage fierce culinary war as they try to out-earn their peers by selling the most of their chosen cuisine. Soma Yukihira, however, has his sights set on a grander prize: challenging the Elite Ten, who rule over the academy with iron fists. But Soma might have to put his grand ambitions on hold for the time being, because an insidious scheme to upset the balance of Totsuki Academy has begun to emerge from the shadows…

Delinquent Hamsters:

HOUSTON, TX – July 5, 2019 – Sentai Filmworks announced today that it has acquired rights to Delinquent Hamsters through a global licensing arrangement (ex-Japan) with indy-animation producer PisoStudio.

Mohawk? Check. Pompadour? Check. Unbridled ambition to be the most crudely cool hamsters around? DOUBLE CHECK. Regent and Mohawk might be small and fluffy, but these hamsters are clearly up to no good. And their “secret life”? Well, it’s no kids’ show. Served up in bite-sized chunks, each 3-minute short will leave you in stitches thanks to the side-splittingly foul-mouthed antics of these very delinquent hamsters.
