Plot Summary: Apparently abandoned by his mother, orphan Lag Seeing is taken as a “letter” by “Letter Bee” Gauche Suede to a town where his aunt raises him. His affection and admiration for Gauche give Lag the ambition to become a Letter Bee himself, carrying mail through the dangerous wasteland between towns on his world. When he becomes a teenager, he makes the trip to the capital to take the examination to become a trainee Letter Bee. En route, he meets the strange, powerful girl-like creature Niche, who becomes his “dingo,” a Letter Bee’s travelling companion. Lag yearns to find his mother, and discover why she abandoned him, if she did.

HOUSTON, September 10, 2012 — Sentai Filmworks’ is pleased to announce their latest acquisition: Tegami Bachi: Letter Bee. Directed by Akira Iwanaga with character designs by Minako Shiba (Black Butler, Noir) and music by Kunihiko Ryo (Emma: A Victorian Romance, Level E).

In a dark land of near-perpetual night, only a single artificial sun illuminates a single city, and communication between the rest of the world is made possible only by the Letter Bees - elite couriers who must fight against monsters known as Gaichuu in order to make their deliveries. Having been saved by a Letter Bee when his mother was kidnapped years ago, Lag Seeing has finally gained employment at the Bee-hive, but he’s quickly learning that the dangerous job has become even more lethal, with renegade humans now targeting the Letter Bees as well. Fortunately, Lag’s been blessed with the ability to see into the memories of others, and every Bee is also supposed to find a “Dingo,” a partner to watch their back. However, when Lag finally finds his Dingo, she’s not at all what he expected. In fact, she may end up being the girl who kicks over the entire hornet’s nest! But no matter what the stings of fate, Lag isn’t going to let anything clip his wings!

Tegami Bachi: Letter Bee will be available through select digital outlets with a home video release on subtitled DVD later this year.

This is sounding like a sequel, and as it sounds vaguely familiar AN has probably ran the previous part of the series. I think I even know which one it is, but I’m not sure as a few things sound off.


It is a sequel, of this…

Tegami Bachi: Letter Bee

Both of which were streamed on CrunchyRoll.

The first season (Letter Bee), will start on TAN both on VOD & ANO later this month.


Okay, it wasn’t a sequel to the series I thought it was, but instead to one that is similar to it, which explains the vague confusion on my part.
