HOUSTON, March 23, 2016Sentai Filmworks is proud to announce its acquisition of the comedy Haven’t You Heard? I’m Sakamoto for the Spring 2016 anime season.  

Just who is Sakamoto? He’s enigmatic. He’s clever. He’s dashing. No challenge is too great and no cause is too small for Sakamoto. Girls love him, guys hate him for it, and despite efforts to humiliate him, Sakamoto is flawlessly able to emerge from the fray, even cooler than ever.  Who knows what Sakamoto is going to do next? Whatever it is, it will be fabulous!  

The series was directed by Shinji Takamatsu (Gintama, School Rumble), with character designs by Atsuko Nakajima (Trinity Blood, Getbackers and Ranma ½).  

Haven’t You Heard? I’m Sakamoto is scheduled for an April 2016 broadcast in Japan. It will soon be available through select digital outlets with a home video release to follow.
