The North American anime distributor Section23 Films announced on Wednesday that it will release the Coffee Samurai, Hoshizora Kiseki, and Allison & Lillia anime projects in May.
Hoshizora Kiseki is an original net anime (ONA) produced by CoMix Wave Inc. The series revolves around a young girl named Kozue who loves astronomy who meets a boy named Ginga while on a trip to view a meteorite. Ginga has mysterious abilities and must wear a protective suit — both of which allow him to help scientists learn more about the stars.
Section23 has scheduled the complete English-subtitled ONA's release for May 10, with a suggested retail price of US$19.98.
Allison & Lillia is set in a world split into two continents who are at war. The story follows orphans Allison and Will as they find themselves heavily involved in the war. The series is based on a light novel series by Kino's Journey creator Keiichi Sigsawa.
The series' first English-subtitled release is currently set for May 17 with a suggested retail price of US$49.98.
Update: Coffee Samurai is a different work from Hoshizora Kiseki, but Section23 Films is releasing the two projects on one DVD. Thanks, Whoomp.
