Anime Expo 2013
Sentai Filmworks Panel

by Zac Bertschy,

The Sentai Filmworks panel began with usual representative David Williams talking about how good a year it's been for the company, and how the Sentai booth on the AX show floor is their biggest ever.

A trailer reel was followed by a recap of the company's summer slate, and then it was time for new announcements: Hiiro no Kakera season 2 on bluray and dvd, Nakaimo on bluray and dvd, La Storia de la Arcana Famiglia on bluray and dvd, High School of the Dead: Drifters of the Dead on bluray and DVD, and then two license rescues: Divergence Eve and Yumeira, although there was no format announcement for these two.

Williams then announced that the company has entered into a deal with Tatsunoko Productions to release portions of their back catalog. The only title mentioned directly was Casshern, but it was hinted at that much more would come from the deal.

The panel wrapped up with a brief mention of Sentai's events to promote Makoto Shinkai's new film, The Garden of Words, and their upcoming release of Girls und Panzer. A handful of questions and a bluray giveaway session rounded it out.
