North American anime licensing company Sentai Filmworks announced on Saturday that it acquired the Mayo Chiki! television anime series. The anime will be available through digital outlets and on subtitled DVD later this year.
In the story, Subaru Konoe (Yuka Iguchi) is a beautiful boy who serves as a mansevant to a classmate named Kanade Suzutsuki (Eri Kitamura). However, another boy named Kinjirō Sakamachi (Satoshi Hino) accidentally discovers Subaru's secret — Subaru is really a girl.
Keiichiro Kawaguchi (Hayate the Combat Butler, Mayo elle Otokonoko) directed the project at the anime studio Feel with series script supervisor Reiko Yoshida (K-ON!, Chu-Bra!!) and character designer Kōsuke Kawamura. The series premiered in Japan last July.
