Key Visual and Cast Released for “Busou Shoujo Machiavellianism” Anime

A new key visual and cast list for the television anime adaptation of Busou Shoujo Machiavellianism has been uploaded to the official website. The cast for the series includes Sayaka Kitahara as the voice of Mary Kikakujou, Nozomi Nishida as the voice of Satori Tamaba, Rina Hidaka as the voice of Warabi Hanasaka, Natsumi Hioka as the voice of Tsukiyo Inaba, and Eriko Matsui as the voice of Kirukiru Amou.

MyAnimeList describes the plot below:

“The Private Aichi Symbiosis Academy was originally a high school for high-class girls. When it became co-ed, the girls, out of fear, asked to be permitted to bring weapons to school. When that was enforced, a five-member vigilante corps-like organization called the “Supreme Five Swords” was also formed.

After many generations, the five swords eventually became a group which corrected problematic students, and the academy started proactively accepting such students in order to correct them.

Nomura Fudou was sent to this school after being part of a huge brawl. What will he do when the only options he has after enrolling are being expelled from that school or being corrected the way the rest of the male students there were…by being forced to dress and act like a girl!”

The original manga was first published in Shounen Ace Magazine by Kanzaki Karuna (art) and Kurokami Yuuya (story) in March 2014 and is currently ongoing. The anime will begin airing in the Spring 2017 season.

New 30-Second CM for “March Comes in Like a Lion” Live Action Film

A 30-second commercial has been uploaded for the March Comes in Like a Lion (3-gatsu no Lion) live action film adaptation! The film will be released in two parts, with the first part opening in theaters on March 18 and the second part on April 22. The series began as a manga that was first published in July 2007 by Umino Chika before being turned into a television anime adaptation in October 2016.

MyAnimeList describes the story below:

“Rei Kiriyama is a 17-year-old boy who recently started living alone, financed by his salary as a professional Shogi player. Despite his independence, however, he’s yet to mature emotionally, and his problems continue to haunt him in his daily life. His relationship with his adoptive family is strained, and he has difficulties interacting with his fellow high school students. Meanwhile, his professional career has entered a slump. Burdened with the heavy expectations placed on him as the fifth to become pro in middle school, his wins and losses are fluctuating as his record and progression into the ranks begin to stagnate.

Acquainted with Rei are the three Kawamoto sisters: Akari, Hinata, and Momo. Unlike Rei, they live happily in their modest home, which they warmly welcome Rei into as if he were one of their own. Despite his reservations about becoming too close to the family, he frequently visits, interacting with them and receiving the kind of care and affection he never quite had while under his foster home.

This is the story of Rei’s triumphs and failures, relationships new and old, and his growth as a person.”
