Maiden Japan Licenses Monochrome Factor Anime
posted on by Karen Ressler
Section23 Films announced in its October release slate on Thursday that its Maiden Japan imprint has licensed the Monochrome Factor anime and plans to release it on subtitle-only DVD on October 16.
Maiden Japan describes the story:
Akira Nikaidoa was just a normal, everyday high school slacker. Or at least, that's what he was before he, his friend Kengo and sexy school prefect Aya were all attacked by a shadow monster called a Kokuchi. Approached by a mysterious, shadowless stranger named Shirogane, Akira is asked to become a "Shin," a creature from the Shadow World and help hunt the Kokuchi down. But is Shirogane telling the complete truth or does he also have a personal agenda that involves getting a bit… friendlier with Akira? Fortunately, Akira's not completely in the dark in his dealings with the shounen ai-esque shadow stranger, as Kengo and Aya turn out to be able to see Shin as well. But can this unlikely team restore balance between the Shadow World and our own?
The 24-episode television anime premiered in April 2008 from director Yuu Kou and the studios GENCO and A.C.G.T.
Tokyopop and JManga released part of Kaili Sorano's original manga in English.
