posted on by Andrew Osmond
Anime Limited announced the following:
We're delighted to announce that we (Anime Limited) have licensed the series The Rolling Girls... We can confirm the series will be receiving a UK Blu-ray and DVD release in 2016. More details on this will be forthcoming.
Funimation previously described the story of the series:
Gun your engines and get ready for the full-throttle adventure of The Rolling Girls, the first original anime from the studio that brought you Attack on Titan! In the wake of the Great Tokyo War, Japan – as the world once knew it – no longer exists. What remains is a fragmented network of independent nations, each ruled by a prophet known as a Mosa. Every Mosa commands an army, or Mob, as they seek to conquer anyone in their path. Enter Nozomi, Yukina, Ai, and Chiaya. Together, these intrepid and adorable girls travel across battle-ravaged Japan, seeking to transform themselves – and their world!
The Rolling Girls is the first original television anime from Wit Studio (anime adaptations of Attack on Titan, Hōzuki no Reitetsu). Otomi Deai (second Silver Spoon season) is directing the anime, and Yasuyuki Muto (Sengoku Basara: Samurai Kings franchise) wrote the scripts. Artist tanu (Tari Tari) was responsible for the original character designs concepts, and Katsuhiko Kitada (Hal) was responsible for the character designs. The four main voice actresses — Ari Ozawa, Rina Hidaka, Risa Taneda, and Yumiri Hanamori — sang a cover of The Blue Hearts punk band's "Tsuki no Bakugekiki" (Lunar Bomber) song as The Rolling Girls for the anime's opening theme song.
