So… can we say that this series is “dreamy”? (Yes, I know that’s awful.)
Earlier today, Sentai Filmworks announced that they picked up the rights to the 100 Sleeping Princes & the Kingdom of Dreams anime TV series. The publisher acquired the rights to the show in the United States, Canada, South America, New Zealand, Australia, the United Kingdom, and “other regions.”
Sentai will stream the series on select digital outlets, followed by a home video release.
Sentai describes the show as:
Enter the mysterious Dream World, where a newly-crowned royal soon learns of an insatiable evil, the yumekui, feeding upon the energy and dreams of sleeping princes who are then unable to awaken. The brave monarch must save them and their world from the dream eater!
