MVM Licenses Mayo Chiki! and .hack/Quantum

Comedy about girl disguised as boy butler, and OAV set in The World R:X.

The website UK Anime Network reports that it was told by MVM that the anime label has acquired two further licences, following MVM's announcement this week that it had acquired Broken Blade.

The Mayo Chiki! anime (pictured right) adapts Hajime Asano's school romantic comedy light novels of the same name. In the story, Subaru Konoe is a beautiful boy who serves as a butler to a classmate named Kanade Suzutsuki. However, another boy accidentally discovers Subaru's secret — Subaru is really a girl. Keiichiro Kawaguchi (Hayate the Combat Butler, Mayo elle Otokonoko) directed the project at the anime studio Feel with series script supervisor Reiko Yoshida (K-ON!, Chu-Bra!!) and character designer Kōsuke Kawamura. The series premiered in Japan in July 2011.

The .hack//Quantum anime is a three-part OAV set in The World R:X setting of the .hack//Link game for the Sony PSP. In the story, the player characters Tobias, Mary, and Sakuya form a party in The World R:X for adventure but encounter a mysterious entity named Hermit. The encounter draws them into the all-consuming darkness taking over The World R:X. Masaki Tachibana (Tokyo Magnitude 8.0, Eiyū Densetsu: Sora no Kiseki The Animation) directed the anime at Kinema Citrus, and Tatsuya Hamazaki (.hack//Legend Of The Twilight, .hack//G.U.+, .hack//Roots) wrote the scripts. Funimation streamed an English-dubbed trailer for the series to promote its release in America, below.
