posted on by Andrew Osmond
On Monday September 10, MVM Entertainment is releasing the first 13-part season of Rosario + Vampire, directed by Takayuki Inagaki (Desert Punk, Indian Summer) and animated by Gonzo. The fanservice-heavy series adapts Akihisa Ikeda's supernatural school comedy manga of the same name. The story follows an ordinary high school boy who fails to get into any private academy except one — which happens to be populated by supernatural creatures (yōkai) disguised as humans. To survive, Tsukune Aono has to pretend that he is also a yōkai and blend in. Viz Media published the manga in North America.
Also on Monday, Manga Entertainment is releasing the 26-part Princess Resurrection horror comedy anime. The Madhouse anime studio adapted Yasunori Mitsunaga's manga about a boy named Hiro who comes to a decrepit mansion to meet his sister. However, his sister turns out to be missing, and Hiro loses his life searching for her. The mistress of the mansion resurrects Hiro and reveals herself as Hime, a princess of the monster kingdom.
Manga is also releasing the tenth box-set of the Naruto Shippūden series; as well as the corrected edition of Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt, which rectifies the faults in Manga's previous release of this Studio Gainax comedy this August.
