Sentai Filmworks Adds Engaged to the Unidentified Anime
posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
North American anime licensing company Sentai Filmworks announced on Friday that it has licensed the television anime adaptation of Cherry Arai's Mikakunin de Shinkōkei comedy manga under the title Engaged to the Unidentified. The company will stream the series through select digital outlets with a home video release to follow this year. Crunchyroll announced on Thursday that it will stream the series as it airs.
The show centers on first-year high school student Kobeni Yonomori. On her 16th birthday, a young man with little presence named Hakuya Mitsumine and his little sister Mashiro suddenly appear in front of her. It turns out that Hakuya is her fiancé, and Mashiro is her future sister-in-law. The three (and Konbeni's big sister Benio) start living together underneath the same roof, and hilarious happenings occur.
The show's cast includes:
Haruka Terui (background characters in Nakaimo, Tamako Market) as Kobeni Yonomori, the "ultimate average high school first-year student." She handles the cooking and all other household chores.
Eriko Matsui (Log Horizon's Isuzu) as Benio Yonomori, the talented student council head at high school. She is actually a pervert with siscon and lolicon issues.
Yuri Yoshida as Mashiro Mitsumine, Hakuya's little sister.
Wataru Hatano (Valvrave's Takumi Kibakawa, Fairy Tail's Gajeel Redfox) as Hakuya Mitsumine, Kobeni's fiancé. He is tall, taciturn, and a bit oblivious to the world.
Yoshiyuki Fujiwara (GJ Club) is directing the series off of scripts by Fumihiko Shimo (Air, Clannad). Ai Kikuchi (Rainbow - Nisha Rokubō no Shichinin, Iron Man) is serving as character designer and chief animation director. Dogakobo is animating the series.
The series will premiere on January 8 on Japan's ABC station.
