Sentai Hooks Up with “Peter Grill and the Philosopher's Time”
HOUSTON, TX — July 2, 2020 — Sentai announced today that it acquired libidinous, laugh-out-loud anime series Peter Grill and the Philosopher's Time, based on Daisuke Hiyama’s manga of the same name, under a global licensing deal (excluding Asia).
Peter Grill is the world’s strongest fighter, but his ascent to the top came with an unexpected consequence: Women around the world, human and monster alike, want to bear his genetically superior children! Since he’s currently engaged to the love of his life, Peter isn’t too keen on his sudden popularity, and it will take every ounce of self-control for Peter to keep his hands to himself and his relationship with his paramour in one piece in the outrageously irreverent Peter Grill and the Philosopher's Time.
Produced by Studio Wolfsbane and directed by Tatsumi, Peter Grill and the Philosopher's Time stars Hiro Shimono (Log Horizon, Nagasarete Airantou, Demon Slayer) as Peter Grill, Ayana Taketatsu (The World God Only Knows, Queen’s Blade Rebellion, MM!) as Mimi Alpacas, Hibiku Yamamura (Frame Arms Girl, The Magnificent KOTOBUKI, Sagrada Reset) as Lisa Alpacas and Sayaka Sembongi (DOREIKU: The Animation, Ahiru no Sora, Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress) as Piglette Pancetta.
The series will be available on select streaming outlets in Summer 2020 with a home video release to follow.
