Sentai Filmworks Adds NouCome, Yu-sibu Anime

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Both series from fall 2013 season to ship in N. America in November

North American anime distributor Sentai Filmworks announced at its Anime Expo panel on Friday that it will also release the NouCome (My mental choices are completely interfering with my school romantic comedy) and Yu-sibu (I couldn't become a hero, so I reluctantly decided to get a job.) television anime series. The company will release both series in November.

The anime adaptation of Takeru Kasukabe's Ore no Nōnai Sentakushi ga, Gakuen Love Come o Zenryoku de Jama Shiteiru (NouCome for short) light novel series centers around Kanade Amakusa (played by Toshiyuki Toyonaga), a boy cursed with the mental power of "absolute multiple-choice" — a multiple-choice quiz will suddenly appear in his mind, and the choice he makes will become his reality. For example, he would have to choose between going nude from the waist up or the waist down in school. While in school, he is given another choice: 1) A beautiful girl will fall before him or 2) he will fall from the rooftop in female clothes. He chooses option 1, and a blonde girl named Chocolat (Kaori Sadohara) falls before him.

Additional cast members include Yui Kondou as Furano Yukihira, Ayumi Tsuji as Ōka Yūōji, Misato as Konagi Yawakaze, Naomi Ōzora as Yuragi Hakoniwa, Hiromi Igarashi as Seira Kokubyakuin, Rei Matsuzaki as Ayame Reikadō, Akiko Yajima as Utage Douraku, and Jouji Nakata as Narrator.

Takayuki Inagaki directed the anime at animation studio diomedéa off of scripts by Hiroko Kanasugi. Chief animation director Hiroyuki Saida also provided the character designs. The 12-episode series premiered in October 2013 and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired.

The anime adaptation of Jun Sakyō's Yūsha ni Narenakatta Ore wa Shibushibu Shūshoku o Ketsui Shimashita. (Yu-sibu) light novels revolves around boy named Raul, who did not get a chance to become a Hero, since the demon lord was already defeated just before his Hero exams. His dreams dashed, Raul spends his days working at a Magic Shop in the capital. One day, a part-time job seeker appears at the shop with an amazing résumé:

Name: Fino
Previous Occupation: Demon Lord Heir
Motive: Because my father was defeated

The work comedy revolves around this former Hero-in-training and the daughter of the demon lord.
