Hinamatsuri‘s SimulDub started streaming yesterday on FunimationNow.
The series is based on Masao Ohtake’s manga of the same name. Kei Oikawa (Outbreak Company, My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU TOO!) was tapped to direct the series at studio feel., with Kanetoshi Kamimoto (Dagashi Kashi, So I Can’t Play H) providing character designs. Keiichirō Ōchi (La Corda d’Oro Blue Sky) is in charge of series composition for the project.
Funimation describes Hinamatsuri as:
Yakuza member Yoshifumi Nitta’s life takes a turn when an odd young girl falls onto his head. Following their strange first meeting, Nitta discovers that the girl possesses strong telekinetic abilities and, despite his protests, has no choice but to care for her. For better or for worse, they’ll try to keep their newly formed partnership from blowing up in their faces.
The Hinamatsuri manga launched in Enterbrain’s Fellows! magazine in 2009. After Fellows! ended publication, the title moved to successor publication Harta. To date, twelve collected volumes have been published, with the thirteenth book set to hit bookstores on Friday.
