Media Blasters Acquires Dokuro-chan Anime (Updated)

posted on by Egan Loo
Comedy series of 13-minute shorts about club-wielding angel from the future

Media Blasters head John Sirabella announced on the Anime on DVD forums that his company has acquired the Bokusatsu Tenshi Dokuro-chan television comedy anime series, which has eight 13-minute episodes. Sirabella did not specify if the acquisition also includes the Bokusatsu Tenshi Dokuro-chan Second video sequel series of four more 13-minute episodes.

The story centers on a middle school boy named Sakura Kusakabe and the club-wielding angel sent from the future to assassinate him. However, the angel Dokuro-chan decides that Sakura is redeemable and tries to prevent him from discovering the secret of immortality (which is his supposed crime). The result is Dokuro-chan alternately killing and resurrecting Sakura, depending on her temperamental mood. The anime is based on Masaki Okayu and Torishimo's light novel series, which was also adapted into manga by Mitsuna Ouse.
