Sentai Filmworks announced their latest anime acquisition today: the girls' basketball series Ro-Kyu-Bu Fast Break!, to be distributed on DVD and digitally through The Anime Network.
Based on Sagu Aoyama and Tinkle's hit light novel series—as well as the two manga series illustrated by Yuki Takami and Futaba Miwa, respectively—Ro-Kyu-Bu follows Hasegawa Subaru as he takes on the daunting task of coaching a young girls' basketball club. The 12-episode series is directed by Keizo Kusaka (Sekirei, Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha A's), with character designs by Takayuki Noguchi (Queen's Blade) and script supervision by Michiko Ito (Special A).
Digital distribution of Ro-Kyu-Bu begins through The Anime Network on Wednesday, July 27. The series will then be released on English-subtitled DVD next year.
