HOUSTON, SEPTEMBER 28, 2016 – High-flying otherworldly adventures abound in Sentai Filmworks’ newest acquisition for the Fall 2016 anime season, FLIP FLAPPERS. This original series by Studio 3Hz (Dimension W, Celestial Method) follows two very different girls as they journey into the world of “Pure Illusion.”
Cocona is a model honor student, cautious and slow to embrace new opportunities. This makes life complicated when a mysterious girl named Papika suddenly appears, fearlessly searching for a wish-granting crystal called the “Shard of Mimi.” When fates collide and they’re given the ability to transform into powerful fairy-like beings, where will the dangerous journey into “Pure Illusion” take them?
Kiyotaka Oshiyama directed the series with Takashi Kojima debuting as chief animation director and character designer, and TO-MAS SOUNDSIGHT FLUORESCENT FOREST in charge of music.
FLIP FLAPPERS is scheduled for an October 2016 broadcast in Japan. It will soon be available on select digital outlets with a home video release to follow.
