Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai Released Monday

posted on by Andrew Osmond

On Monday May 18, MVM is releasing the series Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai as a Collectors Blu-ray, containing five art cards and a 36-page artbook in a hardback slipcase.

In the story, Sakuta Azusagawa is a high school student who suddenly sees a bunny girl appear in front of him. The girl is Mai Sakurajima, Sakuta's upperclassman and also a famous actress who has gone on hiatus from the entertainment industry. For some reason, the people around Mai cannot see her bunny-girl figure. Sakuta sets out to solve this mystery, and as he spends time with Mai, he learns her secret feelings. Other heroines who have "puberty syndrome" start to appear in front of Sakuta.

Sōichi Masui (Sakura Quest, Chaika the Coffin Princess) directed the series at A-1 Pictures' studio CloverWorks. Masahiro Yokotani (Free!, Re:Zero) was in charge of series composition, and Satomi Tamura (animation director for Kiznaiver, Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend) designed the characters. Tamura was also chief animation director with Akira Takata (After the Rain, Natsume's Book of Friends).

Manga Entertainment will release Wise Man's Grandchild as a Blu-ray, a DVD and a Blu-ray/DVD combo. The latter edition includes bookmarks, art cards, a fabric poster and a 120-page book.

The anime adapted Tsuyoshi Yoshioka's fantasy novel series Kenja no Mago. In the story, a young man dies in a car accident and is reborn in a magical new world. The old, yet wise Merlin finds the boy, names him Shin, raises him from infancy, and teaches him combat and powerful magic along the way. 15 years later, Shin is ready to travel the globe on his own, but Merlin forgot to teach him something major—common sense,

Masafumi Tamura (Two Car, Ange Vierge) directed the anime at SILVER LINK, and Tatsuya Takahashi (The IDOLM@STER Cinderella Girls, Beatless, Eromanga Sensei) oversaw the series scripts. Yuki Sawairi (Masamune-kun's Revenge, Two Car) designed the characters.

Anime Limited is releasing a Collector's Blu-ray edition of Shinichiro Watanabe's thriller series Terror in Resonance, including a 36-page booklet containing the storyboards of the first episode.

Anime Limited is also releasing a standard Blu-ray edition of the first season of Ajin: Demi-Human.
