HOUSTON, March 31, 2016Sentai Filmworks is proud to announce its acquisition of Bakuon!! for the Spring 2016 simulcast season.  

Moe and motorcycles have never looked better together in this sports comedy about a group of students in the motorcycle club of their all-girls school. When Hane Sakura sees the wild-hearted Onsa Amano riding a motorcycle to school, Sakura is inspired to join the motorcycle club and get her license. However, nothing could have prepared her for the challenges, or the joys, that come with hitting the road on the wings of a real bike!

The series, based on the original manga by Mimana Orimoto, was directed by Junji Nishimura (Ranma ½, GLASSIP, Dog Days) with Kurasumi Sunayama (Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere) in charge of series composition. TMS Entertainment, the same studio that produced Yowamushi Pedal, Magic Knight Rayearth, Kamisama Kiss, and Gugure! Kokkuri-san, was in charge of animation production.

Bakuon!! is scheduled for an April 2016 broadcast in Japan and will soon be available for simulcast on select digital outlets, with a home video release to follow.
