HOUSTON, APRIL 4, 2017  – A witch emerges from seclusion to recover a stolen book of magic in Sentai Filmworks’ newest acquisition: GRIMOIRE OF ZERO. Based on the hit light novel series Zero kara Hajimeru Mahou no Sho, and produced by the same studio responsible for Akame ga Kill!, Re: ZERO – Starting Life in Another World, Steins; Gate, and Matoi the Sacred Slayer, GRIMOIRE OF ZERO will air exclusively in the U.S. on Anime Strike, the curated on-demand anime subscription from Amazon Channels, for the Spring 2017 anime simulcast season.

In Liturgical Year 526, sorcery has spread throughout the land, but few are aware of a rival practice called "magic." One day, a half-man, half-beast mercenary who has found himself on the run encounters a beautiful witch known only as “Zero.” Zero makes him an offer: if he escorts her on the search for her stolen grimoire, she will help him gain a human form. Despite his hatred for witches, the nameless mercenary accompanies Zero and guards her as she sets out to reclaim a book that has the power to destroy the world.  

GRIMOIRE OF ZERO will soon be available to stream exclusively in the U.S. on Anime Strike, the curated on-demand anime subscription from Amazon Channels, with a home video release to follow. Anime Strike subscribers will be able to stream new episodes every Monday starting April 10.
