FUNimation Licenses Haganai School Comedy Anime

posted on by Egan Loo
Funimation to release 12-episode series based on Yomi Hirasaka's light novel series on DVD, Blu-ray

The North American anime distributor Funimation announced at its Ohayocon panel on Saturday that it acquired the broadcast, home entertainment, merchandising, mobile, and streaming rights to the school comedy television anime series Haganai (Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai). Funimation plans to release the series on DVD and Blu-ray. Funimation will reveal the dub cast for the show and a director at a later date.

Funimation and the video-streaming service Niconico announced in October that they would stream Haganai as it aired in Japan. The two companies then began streaming the series later that month.

Yomi Hirasaka and Buriki's original Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai light novels revolve around Kodaka (Ryohei Kimura) — a half-Japanese/half-British transfer student whose delinquent-like blonde hair and fierce eyes scare people — and a seemingly perpetually sullen girl named Yozora (Marina Inoue). The two decide to form Rinjinbu, a club for misfits with hardly any friends.
