Sentai Filmworks announced on Thursday that it has licensed the 12-episode Kurenai television anime series. The company plans to release the series digitally and then on subtitled DVD later this year.
The series adapts Kentarō Katayama's light novel series about story about a high school boy named Shinkurō Kurenai and Murasaki, the powerful Kuhōin syndicate's seven-year-old heir that Kurenai swore to protect and watch over. Kou Matsuo (Rozen Maiden, Yozakura Quartet) directed the series and oversaw the scripts, and Kumi Ishii (Rozen Maiden, Oreimo) created the character designs based on Yamato Yamamoto's original designs. The series originally aired in 2008. The series was also adapted into a 2010 original animated video.

Update 2: Year original television series aired fixed. Thanks, Big Hed.
