DV Films, the #1 producer-distributor of anime in the U.S., announced today it has acquired exclusive home video and broadcast rights in North America for Best Student Council, a new series by J.C. Staff (Excel Saga, Maburaho).
The school dramedy directed by Yoshiaki Iwasaki (Love Hina) will premiere on the Anime Network™, America’s #1 Anime Channel.
Synopsis: At first glance, Miyagami Gakuen seems like a typical all-girls’ school. Beneath its placid surface, a highly-disciplined student council is engaged in an unceasing struggle to keep Miyagami Gakuen safe from the outside (adult) world! Complete with covert and assault divisions, all student council members have some kind of special ability. So how did cute little transfer student Rando Rino make the cut? Armed with only her ever-present hand puppet (and an excess of adorability), Rino’s good humor and charm lead her through one adventure after another. A hilarious series accented by thoughtful reflections on growing up, Best Student Council plays in the very best tradition of anime comedies.
Release Plans: ADV Films has not yet announced a specific release date, but expects to release it in early 2007.
