On Monday July 14, MVM will release the series Kamisama Kiss. The series adapts Julietta Suzuki's original shōjo manga, and follows Nanami (voiced by Suzuko Mimori), a girl who finds herself homeless after her father leaves. She comes to the home of a man (Akira Ishida) who offers to let her stay over — only to discover it is a Shinto shrine. The man happened to be a deity who has just transferred his status and his yōkai to Nanami.
Akitaro Daichi (Fruits Basket, Kodocha, Now and Then, Here and There) directed the anime at TMS Entertainment (Detective Conan, Lupin III). Junko Yamanaka (Detective Conan, KenIchi the Mightiest Disciple) designed the characters. Suzuki launched the original manga in Hana to Yume in 2008.
MVM will also release Ikki Tousen: Xtreme Xecutor, part of the fanservice-heavy Ikki Tousen franchise. According to the synopsis on Anime-on-line:
Round four delivers double the ditz when the master of school uniform disasters gets a disciple! Word of a tournament gets around, and Hakufu's ready to rumble. But training a pupil is tiring work - and catching some random ZZZs puts a delay on her dreams of combat conquest.
When a sinister force sabotages the rival schools into submission, the warriors' fates reveal themselves in gravity-defying fisticuffs. Can Hakufu muscle her way to victory and save her friends from repeating their fatal past? Only the power of the dragons can tell!
