Sentai Filmworks Licenses "Meganebu!" Anime

Series available digitally soon, home video to follow in 2014

Sentai Filmworks, ya gone and done it again, ya glasses-lovin' maniacs. The company's latest acquisition is none other than Meganebu!, which is set to arrive soon through select digital outlets, with a home video release to follow next year.

 

Meganebu! is a 12-episode series directed by Soubi Yamamoto (This Boy Can Fight Aliens), with series composition by Mysterious Girlfriend X's Deco Akao and character designs by Hakuoki's Atsuko Nakajima.

 

The synopsis from Sentai's press release:

You don’t necessarily have to wear rose-colored glasses to get a better view of the world, you just have to wear glasses!  At least, that’s the philosophy of Akira Soma, a high school student who breaks humanity into three kinds of people: those wear glasses, those who don’t and girls.  After all, if two heads are better than one, then four eyes are clearly superior to two, right?  And what other modern invention can serve as both medical aid and fashion accessory while keeping the sun out of one’s eyes and making 3D movies 3D?  Akira’s focus on eyewear has so framed his thoughts that he’s formed a Glasses Club at Himaraya Third Technical High School and coerced all his glasses-wearing (and ridiculously good looking) friends to join.  Fortunately childhood pal Yukiya, adoring Mitsuki, dreamy Takuma and non-corrective lens wearing Hayato are more than happy to share Akira’s vision of a bespectacled world, even if it sometimes means making a huge spectacle.  You won’t believe what happens next when these sexy techs flex their specs in the series that’s guaranteed to hit the top of the eye charts: MEGANEBU!
