###SENTAI FILMWORKS LICENSES “MEDAKA BOX ABNORMAL”

HOUSTON, September 28, 2012 — Sentai Filmworks is proud to announce its newest acquisition: MEDAKA BOX Abnormal. Last spring’s hit series returns with Shouji Saeki (This Ugly Yet Beautiful World, He Is My Master) directing and featuring character designs by Ikuo Kuwana, sound direction by Jun Watanabe (Steel Angel Kurumi, Comic Party) and music by Tatsuya Katou (Samurai Girls, Campione!).

What started as a simple assistance program has escalated insanely out of control, and now Medaka Kurokami finds herself exposed as something far more than human. But that’s only the beginning of a new series of shocking revelations that lead towards a dark secret plan that not even the unbelievable power of her War God Mode may be able to withstand. Still, Medaka’s proving to be good at thinking outside of the box, and if she needs the full backing of every hidden resource of the Student Council to meet the challenge, then that’s what she’s going to get. Even the Abnormal ones! Get ready for action, violence and gorgeous girls the way only Studio Gainax can make them as the hits, grins, jiggles and girls gone wild enter the berserker stage in the incredible second series: MEDAKA BOX ABNORMAL!

MEDAKA BOX Abnormal will be available soon through select digital outlets with a home video release to follow in 2013.

My guess, is with the limited availibility of this, someone definitely licensed it.

Most likely yes. The question is who. It’s a TV Tokyo and Media Factory production, so it could really be anyone.

If it was Funi, then if would have gone on Funico/NicoNico/whatever it’s called, right?
Viz would have it on their site and Hulu, like Accel World and Zetman.
Bandai…um, noooo…
Maybe MB…
Sentai…that’s my pick…

That may be true, but it’s possible someone else picked up the home video rights after CR nabbed the simulcast rights. It’s also possible that someone in Australia, like Siren or Madman grabbed it as well. However, given past history, Sentai does seem the most likely. But you never know…

-edit-

My bad.
I was thinking this was an Aniplex title for some reason.
