Sentai Filmworks has announced that the company has acquired the license for the BTOOOM! anime. The company says that the series will be available through select digital outlets “soon,” with a home video released scheduled for 2013.

The story centers around Sakamoto, a NEET (Not in Education, Employment, or Training) young man and a top-ranked player in the online combat game Btooom! One day, he wakes up on a tropical island without remembering how he got there. He sees a figure in the distance and asks for help. However, the figure responds by throwing something at Ryūta — a “BIM” bomb.

BTOOOM! is scheduled to premiere in Japan on October 4, 2012.
