Sentai Filmworks to Dub GATE, Monster Musume, Food Wars!, and More

In a press statement, the North American anime licensing company Sentai Filmworks have announced plans to dub seven fan favourite anime titles from the Spring 2015 to Summer 2015 simulcast seasons.

Announced during the Sentai Filmworks panel at Anime Expo 2016 (held in L.A 1st July – 4th July) the titles are as follows:


Monster Musume: Everyday Life With Monster Girls simulcasted during the Summer 2015 anime season, following the exciting (in more ways than one) exploits of a young man who finds himself housing one beautiful monster girl after another.


The Spring 2015 fantasy Is it Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? follows the Hestia Familia’s only adventurer Bell Cranel as he fights monsters in an underground labyrinth.


Food Wars! simulcasted during the Spring 2015 and Summer 2015 anime season. This delicious adventure pits Yukihira Soma head-to-head with talented chefs in the world’s most competitive culinary high school.


The hit comedy Himouto! Umaru-chan demonstrates that the differences between your “outside face” and “inside face” can be shocking. Umaru is a refined beauty in public and cola-binging, potato-chip-eating otaku at home where she becomes her big brother’s problem.


Ushio & Tora is an action-packed shounen anime that ties the fate of a headstrong young boy with the fate of a fearsome yokai trapped by the Legendary Beast Spear. With a common enemy, Ushio and Tora find themselves working together to save the world.


GATE follows Yoji Itami through the mysterious gate that appears suddenly in Japan, bringing with it legions of invaders. He’s sent with the JSDF to the “Special Region” where he meets and befriends an elf, a demigoddess, and a mage despite political tensions between the Empire and Japan.


Amagi Brilliant Park is an adventure within the walls of a theme park like no other, where much of a park’s otherworldly staff is nourished by the energy created by humans having fun! Seiya must use his many talents to successfully manage the park before it, and its employees, disappear.

I’m sure that most if not all of these titles will make their way to Europe and the UK in tandem with their North American release if not shortly after.
