HOUSTON, JUNE 30, 2016Sentai Filmworks has acquired the rights to the slice-of-life romance Momokuri for the Summer 2016 simulcast season.

Yuki Kurihara took a chance one day and confessed her feelings to the boy she liked… and he said “yes”! The boy in question, Shinya Momotsuki (aka Momo-kun) is new when it comes to love, but soon they’re  walking home from school, studying, and eating together. There’s just one problem with this otherwise cute couple: Kurihara is so obsessed with her Momo-kun that she’s sneaking photos of him on her phone, freaking out when they touch, and blushing at every adorable thing he does. Can Kurihara’s little heart handle her nearly manic love for her new boyfriend?

The series was directed by Yoshimasa Hiraike (Gugure! Kokkuri-san, Wagnaria!!) with character designs by chief animator Miwa Oshima (Gugure! Kokkuri-san, Anne-Happy). Animation production was handled by Satelight, the same studio responsible for Log Horizon and The Disappearance of Nagato Yuki-chan.

Momokuri  is scheduled for a July 2016 broadcast in Japan. It will soon be available through select digital outlets with a home video release to follow.
