Sentai Filmworks Licenses Blue Spring Ride
HOUSTON, July 5, 2014 – A girl can wear many masks, but the depths of her heart are not so easily hidden in Sentai Filmworks' latest acquisition, Blue Spring Ride. This romantic drama series is directed by Ai Yoshimura (My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU, Daily Lives of High School Boys), with series composition by Tomoko Konparu (Kamigami no Asobi, Sunday Without God), art direction by Yuji Kaneko (Little Witch Academia, Senyū) and animation production by Production I.G (Another, Broken Blade).
Meek middle school student Yoshioka Futaba has always had a complicated relationship with boys. Considering them loud and violent, Futaba avoids them at all costs. But when the gentle Tanaka catches her eye, Futaba finds herself quickly falling in love. However, a misunderstanding causes Futaba's first love to be quickly crushed. Before Futaba can clear the air, Tanaka disappears from school, and it seems that Futaba's chance has slipped through her fingers for good. Now in her first year of high school, Futaba is looking to start off with a clean slate by undergoing a major personality makeover. Once cute and timid, Futaba now actively makes herself as unattractive as possible in an effort to avoid being ostracized by her female peers once again. But a run-in with a familiar face brings up old memories and the chance to right past wrongs. Second chances don't come often, but will Futaba be able to get her feelings across once and for all?
Blue Spring Ride will be available soon through select digital outlets with a home video release to follow.
