FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

SENTAI FILMWORKS LICENSES “THE KAWAI COMPLEX GUIDE

TO MANORS AND HOSTEL BEHAVIOR”

HOUSTON, March 26, 2014 – A quiet life alone has some advantages, but Usa may never find out what those are in Sentai Filmworks’ latest acquisition, The Kawai Complex Guide to Manors and Hostel Behavior. This romantic slice of life comedy from original creator Ruri Miyahara (Love Lab) is directed by Shigeyuki Miya (Blood Lad, Supernatural: The Anime Series) with series composition by Takeshi Konuta (Ace of Diamond, Library Wars), music by Akito Matsuda (D-Fregments, Dog & Scissors), and animation production by Brains Base (Kamichu!, Natsume’s Book of Friends).

Living away from home can have its perks, especially when you’re just a kid: no parents, no rules, no curfew! Add the fact that you just – miraculously – moved in right next to the girl of your dreams and it sounds too good to be true. Naturally, things that sound too good to be true usually are. Kazunari Usa’s independence arrives by way of his parents’ new job placement. However, with this newfound freedom come the shackles of responsibility, and his hopes and dreams are soon dashed when confronted with the indecent behavior of his lecherous neighbor, Shirosaki. Usa promised he wouldn’t complain if he could just live on his own… he just didn’t expect so much drama. Not only do Usa and his dream-girl Ritsu attend the same school, but Ritsu’s grandaunt, the landlady Sumiko, tries to give Usa weird relationship advice regarding the two. To top it all off, everything is upended when Usa meets Mayumi, an older, flirty woman that he runs into on the street. Will Usa’s fantasy of a normal life ever become a reality? Stay tuned to find out in THE KAWAI COMPLEX GUIDE TO MANORS AND HOSTEL BEHAVIOR!

The Kawai Complex Guide to Manors and Hostel Behavior will be available soon through select digital outlets with a home video release to follow.

That Time I Saw Nagito Komaeda At Whole Foods

It isn’t unusual for me to see anime characters in my neighborhood. I live near a DC metro stop that’s crammed with hotels, so Anime USA and Blerdcon take place here. To be honest, that’s probably why I shouldn’t have been surprised to see Nagito Komaeda at Whole Foods. I was out of Dino Nuggets […]
