12-episode anime about yosakoi dancing premiered last summer

Sentai Filmworks announced on Thursday that it has licensed the anime Hanayamata (stylized HaNaYaMaTa) and plans to release the series on home video

The 12-episode series premiered in July 2014 and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan.

Ordinary in looks, ordinary in brains, ordinary in arts and athletics … 14-year-old Naru Sekiya is just ordinary in every way. Naru leads an ordinary day-to-day life even as she adores "heroines." She embarks on a path to an unordinary world called "Yosakoi" dance, guided by an exotic fairylike girl she met one moonlit evening.

Atsuko Ishizuka (The Pet Girl of Sakurasou, No Game, No Life) directed the anime at the studio MADHOUSE. Reiko Yoshida (K-ON!, Girls und Panzer, Tamako Market) wrote and supervised the scripts, and Atsuko Watanabe (GA: Geijutsuka Art Design Class, Juden Chan, The Everyday Tales of a Cat God) designed the characters. The creator group MONACA composed the music, and DIVE II Entertainment produced the music.
