Sentai Filmworks Licenses “Long Riders!”
HOUSTON, October 25, 2016 – Sentai Filmworks is proud to announce the newest addition to its Fall 2016 lineup: Long Riders!
For first-year college student Ami Kurata, it was love at first sight when she laid her eyes on a folding bike. She saves up money to buy one of her own, then pedals right into the exciting world of long-distance bicycling. After forming a cycling team on campus, Ami and her four new bike mates prepare for the ride of their lives in an upcoming long-distance race.
The series was directed by Tatsuya Yoshihara (Monster Musume: Everyday Life with Monster Girls), with series composition by Natsuko Takahashi (My Love Story!!, Divine Gate). Animation production was handled by Actas, the same studio responsible for the Girls und Panzer franchise.
Long Riders! will be available on select digital outlets with a home video release to follow.
