HOUSTON, JUNE 27, 2017 – Romance gets a little tricky with Sentai Filmworks’ newest acquisition for the Summer 2017 anime season: LOVE and LIES! The series will soon be available to stream in the U.S. on Anime Strike, the curated on-demand anime subscription from Amazon Channels.
In order to increase birth rates, Japan implements a capability calculation that assigns partners to young people when they turn 16. Those who deviate from their assigned partners are severely punished. Yukari Nejima has been in love with Misaki Tazaki since grade school, and finally confesses to her on his 16th birthday, only to find out he has been assigned to Ririna Sanada. Originally not thrilled, Ririna agrees to allow Yukari and Misaki to continue their illicit relationship in hopes of learning more about love. Things get complicated when love and lies start to intersect.
The series will be helmed by director Seiki Takuno (Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches) and the studio LIDENFILMS.
LOVE and LIES will soon be available to stream on Anime Strike in the U.S., and available in certain countries through select digital outlets for the Summer 2017 season, , with a home video release to follow.
