posted on 2012-01-06 12:57 EST
The North American licensing company Sentai Filmworks announced on Friday that it acquired the Inu × Boku SS television anime series. It will debut on digital platforms and television starting early this year, followed by DVD and Blu-ray Disc releases later in the year.
The romantic comedy follows a mistress and her "servant" (bodyguard) in Maison de Ayakashi, a high-class building better known by the name "Demon House (Ayakashi-kan)." Rumors about it abound, ranging from "nothing but weirdos live there," to "It's a haunted house inside," but the truth is that the people who live in this mysterious building are all descendants of demons. Ririchiyo Shirakiin is troubled by her inability to interact with people, and comes to the building in order to change herself. There she meets Soushi Miketsukami, one of the Secret Service bodyguards assigned to each tenant, and he tells her, "Please make me your dog!"
Naokatsu Tsuda (Shikabane Hime: Kuro, Squid Girl) is directing the anime adaptation of Cocoa Fujiwara's original manga at David Production. Haruko Iizuka (The [email protected], Toaru Kagaku no Railgun) is designing the characters and acting as chief animation director. Toshizo Nemoto (Towa no Quon, Phi Brain: Kami no Puzzle) is overseeing the scripts, and Takuya Satō (Strawberry Marshmallow, Mayoi Neko Overrun!) is supervising the scenario and setting for the series.
Update: Press release link added.
