Sentai Filmworks Press Release

Per PR



HOUSTON, June 30, 2012 — Get ready to throw down with Sentai Filmworks’ latest acquisition: Mayo Chiki!. Directed by Keiichiro Kawaguchi (Nyankoi!, Hayate the Combat Butler) and featuring character designs by Kosuke Kawamura and music by Yukari Hashimoto (Mawaru Penguindrum, MM!).

When you’ve got acute gynophobia, even a pretty girl can be a malady, and as the sparring partner for his family of female wrestlers, Sakamachi Kinjiro has the worst case EVER! Just one touch makes his nose bleed, so school’s a bloody nightmare even before Kanade, the Principal’s twisted daughter, deduces both Kinjiro’s “feminine issue” AND that his name contains the sounds “Chi” and “Kin” back to back. But Chi-Kin’s female troubles don’t totally redline until a wrong turn in the men’s room exposes the secret Subaru, Kanade’s manservant, has been hiding in the water closet. (Well, to be fair, we should say WOmanservant.) And if Subaru’s cross reactions concerning her cross-dressing aren’t enough of a drag, Kinjiro’s girl problems also include a haunted martial artist (with ghosts); a cat-eared fetishist (meow!); AND his own sister, whose interest in “wrestling” a certain incorrectly packaged butler may result in an unexpected ending! And that’s JUST the set up! The maiden parts will fly, the punch lines will be below the belt and the butler will be cross-dressed to kill as Kinjiro goes stark-raving “Girl Crazy” in MAYO CHIKI!

Mayo Chiki! will be available through digital outlets and on subtitled DVD later this year.

Episode 1 (Sub) is live at ANO

I with held from watching this when I read about one of the characters cross dressing as a butler. Now, I don’t care what anyone does with their own life, I just don’t care for it myself.So don;t think I’m bashing anyone who does, cause I’ not :stuck_out_tongue: .

For some reason this show kept jumping out at me so I dove in and started watching it. It is now one of my favorite ones I’ve watched!! I just hope in the last episode, Jiro ends up with Subaru and not like the other shows where it’s a cliff hanger at the end (AKA- seeing if their was enough interest for a 2nd season :angry: ) Please let me have one show where the dude scores the dudette!!If not, make a 2nd season that doesn’t stray far from the 1st and THEN let him score the girl!!

I think on the manga side, there was a spin off in which another person found out about Subaru’s secret. Without going the fan translated route, I doubt it matters as the first volume of the main manga was buyable in the US after this show started here.

Episodes 1 -12 (Dub) are live at ANO

I don’t think it was too bad. Kanade Suzutsuki and Kureha Sakamichi’s voices just didn’t fit to me. Nothing against the VA’s, they just didn’t seem to fit the character very well. Although, Kureha’s VA already had massive shoes to fill as it was. Trying to dub anything by Kana Hanazawa or Rie Kugimiya is hard. So I generally give those a little more forgiveness.

This wasn’t quite what I was expecting. It reminded me a bit of Maria Holic, and not just because of the casting (and the Chris Ayres dub direction). BTW did the video of episode one cut out midway through the actor credits for anyone else?

How’d Blake Shepard end up being Sentai’s go-to guy for these sort of male roles? :slight_smile:

…This is a Kugimiya sub? Well I won’t be going through that then as I’ve stood about all that I can stand from the overused “voice of tsundere” lol.

Q. What are your thoughts on Mayo Chiki and has there ever been talk of a season 2?

A. Mayo Chiki was hilarious, and we haven’t heard any talk of a season 2, but hopefully Japan will find it in their hearts to make another season.

These arrived today .
