HOUSTON, TX, April 23, 2019 – Maiden Japan announced today that it has acquired the rights to This Art Club Has a Problem!

(My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU TOO!, Kanamemo) and directed by Kei Oikawa (My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU TOO!, Outbreak Company) with script supervision from industry veteran Naruhisa Arakawa (CLAMP School Detectives, Blue Seed).
A totally ordinary art club at the totally ordinary Tsukimori Middle School. There, Subaru Uchimaki squanders his artistic talent on his true passion and life’s mission: drawing the ideal “2D wife.” Club member Mizuki Usami finds herself with a crush on the hopeless Uchimaki. The seemingly uninterested club president is always sleeping, but he keeps a close eye on Uchimaki and Usami’s antics. Then there’s the mysterious Colette, who’s usually lost in her own little world. When this ragtag bunch gathers together as the Art Club, there’s sure to be some problems…
With a diverse cast of relatable and engaging characters, This Art Club Has a Problem!’s powerhouse vocal cast features Ari Ozawa (Land of the Lustrous, Monster Musume, The Promised Neverland), Yusuke Kobayashi (Comet Lucifer, Dive!!, Dynamic Chord), Kentaro Tone (Gintama, Young Black Jack) and Sumire Uesaka (Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun, Battle Girl High School).
This Art Club Has a Problem! will be streamed on select digital outlets and released on home video.
