Acquires digital and home video licenses, will partner with Crunchyroll to stream series

Anime Limited announced that it has acquired digital and home video licenses for the upcoming series Anonymous Noise in the UK and Ireland (as well as Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Iceland and Finland.) It is partnering with Crunchyroll to simulcast the series in Japanese with English subtitles to those locations.

The simulcast begins Tuesday April 11, with the first episode available at 4 p.m. UK time and a new episode at the same time every Tuesday.

Anime Limited adds, "A home video release in the United Kingdom and Ireland will follow in the future – this likely won't be until some time in 2018 at this stage."

Sentai Filmworks has described the story:

Blessed with a beautiful voice, Nino only sings for one reason: to be found. Nino finds herself looking for two boys who left her without reason, Momo and Yuzu. By chance, all three of them end up in the same high school, and Nino discovers that her singing isn't in vain. As they rediscover their bonds, the group realizes that time changes many things, and sometimes certain things can't be repaired.

Hideya Takahashi (Keijo!!!!!!!!, Fantasista Stella) is directing the series at Brains Base (Natsume's Book of Friends, Durarara!!). Deko Akao (Snow White with the Red Hair, Noragami) is in charge of the series composition, and Mariko Itou is designing the characters for animation and serving as chief animation director. Sadesper Records (Narasaki / Watchman) is in charge of the music.

Ryoko Fukuyama's original shōjo manga is also inspiring a live-action film that will premiere in Japan on November 25.

Viz Media is publishing the manga in North America. Fukuyama launched the series in Hakusensha's Hana to Yume magazine in April 2013. Hakusensha published the 12th volume on March 20.
