Sentai Filmworks has announced that the company has acquired the license for the Sasami-san@Ganbaranai anime. The company says it will be releasing the series digitally soon through “select digital outlets” with a home video release planned for later in 2013.
The series follows a hikikomori (shut-in) named Sasami Tsukuyomi who is unmotivated about even changing clothes or eating. Her brother Kamiomi takes care of her, even though she despises his slave-like nature. Sasami spends her days viewing the outside world via a “Brother Surveillance Tool” on her computer. In the outside world, the three beautiful Yagami sisters and Sasami’s brother are in the middle of relationships worthy of a romantic comedy.
Sasami-san@Ganbaranai will premiere on Japanese television on January 10, 2013. The Anime Network will simulcast the series on Fridays starting on January 18, 2013 at 11:30 a.m. EST.
