North American anime licensing company Sentai Filmworks announced on Sunday that it acquired the Qwaser of Stigmata television anime series. Both television seasons and the original video anime will be available through digital outlets and on uncut, subtitled DVD later this year.
When Mafuyu Oribe and her adopted sister Tomo rescue a strange Wounded Man, they have no idea what they're getting involved with or what the consequences will be. Alexander Nikolaevith Hell is an Iron Qwaser, one of many opposing factions of super-warriors who can each draw upon the power of an element and wield it as an almost unstoppable array of weapons. And unfortunately for Mafuyu, Alexander's faction is there to gather the mystical relics known collectively as the High Circuit, which puts her friends, family and school at ground zero in a battle for the fate of all mankind! But there's an even more disturbing twist, as Qwasers require a special liquid diet to manifest their powers, one provided by the women who serve as a Qwaser's partner. And THAT means that the nursing Mafuyu's already given Alexander isn't the only kind of nursing he needs! Get ready for one of the wildest, weirdest animes to EVER come out of Japan as the courage within a woman's breast unleashes a whole new kind of mayhem in QWASER OF STIGMATA!
Hiraku Kaneko (Aquarian Age, Godannar) directed the anime at Hoods Entertainment. Makoto Uno (Gravion, Love Hina) designed the characters, and Tatsuya Katou (Horizon in the Middle of Nowhere, MEDAKA BOX) scored the music.
