HOUSTON, TX — September 30, 2019 — Sentai Filmworks announced today that it acquired exclusive rights to comedy anime series Outburst Dreamer Boys through a licensing agreement that includes North America, Australia, New Zealand, the UK, Ireland, South Africa, the Netherlands, Scandinavia, and Nordic Countries, Spain, Portugal, and Central and South America.
Mizuki Hijiri just transferred schools, but her chances of having a quiet high school life shatter when she meets the eccentric members of the Hero Club! These “chunibyo” dudes and their youthful delusions of grandeur quickly sweep Mizuki into a world of outrageous hijinks and nonstop fantasy. Noda dreams of becoming a hero. Takashima, resident otaku, longs to date only 2D girls. Tsukumo fancies himself the school’s master manipulator. And then there’s Nakamura, a reincarnation of an angel… or a devil, depending on the day. Mizuki has her work cut out for her in the Hero Club because while their delusions might be the stuff of fantasy, the trouble they cause is as real as it gets!
Outburst Dreamer Boys is produced by Studio Deen (Haven’t You Heard? I’m Sakamoto!, Sakura Trick, Student Council’s Discretion) and directed by Kazuya Ichikawa (Flying Witch Petit, Tantei Team KZ Jiken Note, Clean Freak! Aoyama-kun), with series composition by Midori Goto (Hozuki’s Coolheadedness, Attack on Titan: Junior High, Clean Freak! Aoyama-kun). The series stars Chinatsu Akasaki (Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions!, Wasteful Days of High School Girl, Love Lab) as Mizuki Hijiri, Daiki Yamashita (Tamako Market, My Hero Academia, Silver Spoon) as Yamato Noda and Junya Enoki (My Love Story!, Haikyu!!, The Anthem of the Heart) as Rei Tsukumo.
The series will be available Fall 2019 to stream on select digital outlets with a home video release to follow.
