Sentai Filmworks announced on Saturday September 1st, at it Animaine panel. Three new titles. Penguindrum, Ninja Scroll and Letter Bee Season 1.
Release Date - December: Blu-ray Disc and DVD
Mawaru Penguindrum (or "Rolling Penguin Drum") is a weird, experimental, magical girl-type show by Ikuhara. The Takakura trio--consisting of brothers Kanba and Shoma, and their sister Himari--live in crippling poverty and have the threat hanging over their heads that Himari doesn't have much longer to live. One day, after a trip to the aquarium, Himari finally collapses dead on the floor. Just as the brothers grieve over their loss, Himari suddenly comes back to life.
Now the Takakuras have their sister again, alive and well. However, the same entity that gave Himari her life tells them her price: she wants the family to get her the "Penguin Drum." What is this object? What is the story behind the strange penguins that only their family can see? And what does the highly-animated transformation sequence have to do with anything?
Writer Notes - I love Ninja Scroll. If there are three things that got me into Anime, Ninja Scroll was one of them.
Ninja Scroll will be on Blu-ray and DVD in December.
Jubei must kill the Devils of Kimon to get the gold and one of the devils he has already killed before.
Coming to DVD in December as well.
