Crunchyroll Adds 'Haven't You Heard? I'm Sakamoto' Anime's Unaired 13th Episode
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Media distribution service Crunchyroll announced on Monday that it has added the 13th and final episode of the Haven't You Heard? I'm Sakamoto television anime. The episode did not air as planned this past spring. Special news coverage of the Kumamoto earthquakes delayed the anime's second episode in April. As a result, every subsequent episode was delayed by one week.
Director Shinji Takamatsu had stated that the staff had crafted the 13th episode specifically for the medium of television, so he described its removal from the broadcast schedule as "truly disappointing." The anime's official website lists the 13th episode in the anime's fifth and final Blu-ray Disc/DVD volume, which will ship on October 26 in Japan.
Sentai Filmworks describes the story:
Just who is Sakamoto? He's enigmatic. He's clever. He's dashing. No challenge is too great and no cause is too small for Sakamoto. Girls love him, guys hate him for it, and despite efforts to humiliate him, Sakamoto is flawlessly able to emerge from the fray, even cooler than ever. Who knows what Sakamoto is going to do next? Whatever it is, it will be fabulous!
Shinji Takamatsu (Gintama, Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE!, School Rumble) directed the anime at Studio DEEN. Atsuko Nakajima (You're Under Arrest, Ranma ½, Hakuōki) designed the characters for animation. Yasuhiko Fukuda (Kocchi Muite Miko, Doamaiger D, Kurayami Santa) composed the music. Masatoshi Muto (Tokyo Ghoul, Riddle Story of Devil) served as art director.
Haven't You Heard? I'm Sakamoto is Nami Sano's debut manga series. Sano launched the series in Kadokawa's harta manga magazine in 2011, and ended the series in December. Seven Seas Entertainment is publishing the manga in North America, and the company released the fourth volume on July 26.
The manga won the best "male-oriented" comics volume award from Da Vinci magazine and the Comic Natalie Grand Prize in 2013.
