posted on by Karen Ressler
Sentai Filmworks announced on Thursday that it has licensed the anime Windy Tales (Fuujin Monogatari) and plans to release the series digitally and on home video.
Production I.G.'s 13-episode series aired in Japan from 2004-2005. Sentai Filmworks describes the story:
It has been said that air becomes wind when it is agitated. As luck would have it, a small unassuming village in the Japanese countryside, known as the Village of the Wind, harbors a group of mysterious wind handlers who tempt fate. In this town, young Nao is an 8th grader who discovers a cat high above where she normally shoots her digital camera. Nao is one of only two members of her school's Digital Camera Club, and she already sees the world through a different lens than most. The other member of the club is Miki, Nao's friend and photography aid, although she doesn't seem too interested in the hobby herself. Now, the two friends, along with Jun who seems to follow them everywhere they go, find themselves searching outside of the Village of the Wind for the secret of how it all works. Will these children be the ones to discover the truth and understand the mystery of this powerful force? With the wind at their back, they are determined to grasp its meaning in WINDY TALES.
Animax Asia produced an English dub.
