HOUSTON— Sentai Filmworks is proud to announce its newest acquisition: Outbreak Company. This 12 episode series is directed by Kei Oikawa and features character designs by Takashi Mamezuka with series composition by Naruhisa Arakawa (So I Can’t Play H), sound direction by Takahiro Enomoto (Blessing of the Campanella) and music by Keiji Inai (BTOOOM!).
Shinichi Kanou’s father writes novels and his mother illustrates erotic video games, so perhaps it’s not unexpected that he’d end up as a fan of comics and science fiction. However, rather than channeling his efforts into creating like his parents, he has instead become one of the world’s foremost experts on moe, with a staggeringly encyclopedic knowledge of all things cute and adorable in every conceivable form of animation and media. This sort of explains Shinichi’s recruitment as an ambassador for moe to the Holy Eldant Kingdom, a parallel world where things that previously only existed in anime actually exist! So how will a hot blooded young otaku react when dropped into a world with actual cute and adorable elf maids and dragons? More importantly, how will THEY react to this drooling devotee with diplomatic credentials?And even more to the point, exactly WHY does the Japanese government feel that sending someone to represent Japan’s moe interests is a good idea in the first place? Sorry, no spoilers! If you want to learn more, you’ll have to come along for the adventure as the ultimate anime fans’ fanboy fantasy unfurls in OUTBREAK COMPANY!
Outbreak Company will be available soon through select digital outlets with a home video release to follow in 2014.
