Sentai Filmworks confirmed with ANN on Friday that its license of the Un-Go television anime series will include Un-Go episode:0 Inga-ron (Un-Go episode:0 Inga chapter), the film prequel to the series. The 45-minute original story that depicts the protagonists Shinjūrō and Inga's first encounter ran in Japanese theaters for two weeks starting last month.
In Un-Go, Shinjūrō Yūki and Inga work together to solve mysteries in a near future timeline. The story is based on the works of Ango Sakaguchi (Aoi Bungaku Series' "In the Forest, Under Cherries in Full Bloom"), a post-World War II Japanese novel and essayist. The anime premiered on October 13.
The staff includes director Seiji Mizushima (Fullmetal Alchemist, Gundam 00), the studio Bones, screenwriter Shou Aikawa (Fullmetal Alchemist, Nadesico), and character designers pako (Scar-red Rider XechS) and Yun Kouga (Gundam 00, Loveless). Crunchyroll is streaming the series in various countries outside of Japan, Anime on Demand is streaming the series in the U.K., and Anime News Network Australia is streaming the series in Australia.
