Sentai Filmworks Licenses The Legend of the Galactic Heroes and Higurashi When They Cry

Sentai Filmworks announces at its Anime Expo panel that it has acquired two anime licenses:

  • The Legend of the Galactic Heroes
  • Both seasons and the “season 3” OVA of Higurashi When They Cry

The Legend of the Galactic Heroes video anime series adapts Yoshiki Tanaka’s space opera novel series. VIZ Media’s Haikasoru imprint has licensed the original novel series and plans to release the first three novels in spring 2016.

FUNimation Entertainment originally released Higurashi When They Cry in North America in 2008 after acquiring the license from Geneon Entertainment. FUNimation then announced in 2011 that it was going to let its license of the series expire.
