The North American anime licensee Sentai Filmworks announced at its Anime Central panel on Saturday that it acquired the Amagami SS and MM! television anime series for release this September.
The Amagami SS anime adapted Enterbrain's PlayStation 2 romance simulation game Amagami. The original game centers around a second-year high school boy who find himself uneasy during Christmastime due to an experience in the past. However, this year at Christmas, he gets his last chance to ask out a graduating female senior named Haruka Morishima — or one of several other classmates. Yoshimasa Hiraike and AIC's anime aired from July to December of last year.
The MM! anime adapted the late Akinari Matsuno's light novel series about Tarō Sado, a high school boy who discovered a side of himself that is into masochism. Even as he tries to hide this side from his high school crush, he tries to fix it through his school's "2nd Volunteer Club." Tsuyoshi Nagasawa and Xebec's anime aired from October to December of last year.

Update: Sentai Filmworks indicated that both anime will "most likely" have only English subtitles, but also said that Demon King Daimao was going to be subtitled-only until Sentai Filmworks and Section23 Films decided to give it an English dub and a Blu-ray Disc release based on streaming statistics.
