posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
North American licensing company Sentai Filmworks announced on Friday that it has licensed the television anime adaptation of Yuyuko Takemiya's Golden Time light novel series. The company plans to release the series on home video in 2014, after streaming the series "through select digital outlets." Crunchyroll revealed earlier this week that it will stream the series as it airs.
The school romantic comedy of Golden Time revolves around Banri Tada (voiced by Makoto Furukawa), a college student who lost all of his memories upon graduating his high school. The story follows Banri, Kōko Kaga (Yui Horie), a girl whose seemingly-perfect looks belies her hidden regrets, Kōko's significant other Mitsuo Yanagisawa (Kaito Ishikawa), and other students at Banri's college in Tokyo, including Nana Hayashida (Ai Kayano), Chinami Oka (Ibuki Kido), Nijigen-kun (Takahiro Hikami), and Nana-senpai (Satomi Satou).
GENCO is producing the series with J.C.STAFF handling the animation. Chiaki Kon (Makai Ouji: Devils and Realist, When They Cry - Higurashi) is directing the series, while Fumihiko Shimo (Fate/stay night) is in charge of the series scripts. Shinya Hasegawa (Revolutionary Girl Utena) is designing the characters, and Jin Aketagawa (Code Geass: Akito the Exiled) is the sound director at Magic Capsule, and Yukari Hashimoto (Toradora!) is composing the music. Horie will perform the opening and ending theme songs.
The anime premiered in Japan on October 3.
