posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Discotek Media announced on Tuesday that it has licensed the Miss Machiko (Maicching Machiko-sensei) anime for streaming. It will offer all 95 episodes of the series with English subtitles. Discotek will announce the streaming platforms, territories, and schedules at a later date.
Discotek describes the series:
The mischievous students of Arama Academy meet their match in a beautiful and clever new teacher, Miss Machiko! But they're determined to find a prank that will really embarrass her. No matter what they devise she still manages to laugh it off and help them with their school work and problems.
Discotek announced that Miss Machiko is the first in a number of anime that it will distribute only through streaming, noting that such titles "might not have enough sales potential to release DVDs or BDs." The company will gauge demand for the anime through the streaming platform, and may decide to release the series on home video at a later date.
The series is based on Takeshi Ebihara's manga of the same name. The series ran on TV Tokyo from 1981 to 1983. The manga also inspired a series of eight live-action film adaptations from 2003 to 2009.
