Sentai Filmworks Adds Dimension High School Live-Action/Anime Show

posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Series premieres in Japan on January 10

Sentai Filmworks announced on Saturday that it has licensed the original live-action/anime hybrid television show Dimension High School (Chōjigen Kakumei Anime: Dimension High School) for the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Spain, Portugal, and other select territories. Sentai Filmworks will stream the show on "select digital outlets" with a planned home video release to follow.

The anime will premiere in Japan on Tokyo MX (at 10:00 p.m.), J:COM, and GyaO! on January 10, and will premiere on BS Fuji on January 13.

Sentai Filmworks describes the series:

One day, on his way to high school, student Junpei picks up an unusual looking rock. Thinking nothing of it, he heads to class. While in the middle of a session, the rock comes to life and transports him and four others to an animated world! To make matters more interesting, the group is introduced to a giant sphinx who is determined to take over the world! Now, to protect their world from invasion, the group must work together as anime characters and real-world humans!

The show will have both live-action and anime parts, with Yuuichi Abe (Carino Coni, The Girl in Twilight) as director, and Izumi (Touken Ranbu) as character designer. Polygon Pictures is animating the 3DCG animation parts, and the actors themselves are performing motion capture for the animation.

Takahide Ishii, Takeo Ōtsuka, Shōhei Hashimoto, and Takuma Zaiki will perform the opening theme song "Here we go!" as their characters under the unit name 4 Dimensions.
