Sentai Filmworks’ New Acquisition of ‘Takunomi’, Deserves a Toast

HOUSTON TX, DECEMBER 27, 2017 – This Winter 2018 season is full of great food and drinks for all the fans of Sentai Filmworks. We’re happy to announce that we have acquired the adaption of Haruto Hino’s manga, known as ‘Takunomi’.

‘Takunomi‘ follows the story of Michiru Amatsuki, a 20-year-old woman who just moved to Tokyo to change jobs. She lives in apartment 101 of Stella House Haruno, an all-female boarding house. There, she meets other women of different ages, jobs, and personalities. They all have something in common though: their love for good food and drinks.

The series will start in the Winter 2018 season and will be available for streaming exclusively on HIDIVE starting in January 2018. ‘Takunomi’ comes to Sentai from Production IMS’ studio. It is directed by Kobayashi, Tomoki (‘Akame ga Kill!’) and Katsuhiko Takayama (‘ef: A Tale of Memories’, and ‘Sakurada Reset’) is working on the script. This new story with Slice of Life, Comedy and Shounen elements is sure to have some good times for all.
