posted on by Karen Ressler
North American anime distributor Funimation Entertainment announced on Thursday that it has acquired streaming and home video rights for Jinsei - Life Consulting.
The full English-subtitled series will be available streaming for Funimation subscribers at 6:00 p.m. EST on Thursday. The episodes will be the broadcast versions, and Funimation plans to release the final versions at a later date.
The 13-episode series premiered last July and adapted Ougyo Kawagishi's Jinsei (La Bonne Vie) light novel series.
The light novel series will end with the 10th volume in March.
Keiichiro Kawaguchi (Hayate the Combat Butler, Zettai Karen Children, Hunter × Hunter -The Last Mission-) directed the anime at studio Feel in collaboration with millepensee. Naruhisa Arakawa (Outbreak Company, MAOYU, Steel Angel Kurumi) was in charge of the series composition, and Keiichirō Ōchi, Arakawa, and Tsuyoshi Tamai wrote the scripts. Tomoyuki Shitaya (Hatsukoi Limited, Bakuman.) adapted Meruchi Nanase's original character designs.
Funimation describes the story:
When bespectacled Yuki Akamatsu joins his school's 2nd Newspaper Club, he finds himself caught in the crossfire between three pretty panelists assigned to the Life Advice column. Rino Endo has a mind for science, Fumi Kujo loves literature, and Izumi Suzuki covers the world of sports. If students have questions that need answers, these are the girls to ask, but cute as they may be, these panelists never seem to agree on anything! Needless to say, navigating life in the 2nd Newspaper Club is gonna be more than poor Yuki bargained for!
