Making a Living in Manga in Japan with Felipe Smith
Lost in Translation
North American anime licensing company Sentai Filmworks announced on Thursday that it has acquired the Kill Me Baby television anime series. The company will release the series through "select digital outlets" and then later this year on bilingual DVD.
The series adapts Kaduho's four-panel comedy manga. Yoshiki Yamakawa (Hatsukoi Limited) directed the anime at J.C. Staff (A Certain Magical Index, Tantei Opera Milky Holmes), and Hideki Shirane of Dream Eater Merry and Aria the Scarlet Ammo was in charge of the scripts. Shinya Hasegawa (Ikki Tousen, Otome Yōkai Zakuro) handled the character designs.
The cast for the series includes Mutsumi Tamura as Sonya, the assassin girl who happens to attend an ordinary school; Ai Takabe as Agiri Goshiki, a ninja in Sonya's organization; and Chinatsu Akasaki as Yasuna Oribe, a fearless yet not-so-smart girl and a self-described "friend" of Sonya.
The 13-episode series premiered in Japan in January 2012.
