Anime News News Sentai Filmworks

Sentai Filmworks has just announced their acquisition of the North American distribution rights to the film Hakuoki ~ Demon of the Floating Blossom: Wild Dance of Kyoto. The film is based on the popular game and anime series Hakuoki. Sentai Filmworks licensed other Hakuoki anime in 2012. They provided a synopsis of the film: “Chizuru Yukimura heads to Kyoto in search of her father, a doctor who has disappeared. However, she soon discovers that the city hides deadly creatures within its shadows, and that a fearsome group of swordsmen, the famed Shinsengumi, help maintain a tenuous peace. As both parties attempt to find the missing doctor, Chizuru and the men of the Shinsengumi will discover things about themselves that they would rather have left a mystery.”

Osamu Yamasaki (Hakkenden: Eight Dogs of the East) directed and scripted the theatrical feature. Animation direction and character design was handled by Atsuko Nakajima (Get Backers, Ranma ½), and Yone Kazuki (Kamigami no Asobi, Nobunaga the Fool) provided the original character designs. The film will be available on home video soon.
