News Joost Begins Streaming Koi Koi Seven Anime
posted on 2009-02-02 19:35 EST
The Joost video-streaming service has added the first five episodes of the Koi Koi Seven anime series over the past weekend. This would be the first time this anime has been officially available in English. Vuze, a rival streaming platform, had announced that Koi Koi Seven would be among the titles it would stream by the end of 2007, but the title never materialized on this other site.
The story in the 2005 anime (and the original 2003 manga by Hanaukyo Maid Team creator Morishige) revolves around Tetsuro, a boy who just enrolled in an otherwise all-girls high school. He finds himself caught in the nearly daily battles among the student body with helicopters, bazookas, beam sabers, and more bizarre weapons. However, Koi Koi Seven, a school faction that includes a girl with a longtime crush on him, has vowed to protect him.
