Sentai Filmworks Licenses O Maidens in Your Savage Season Anime

Sentai Filmworks announced on Friday that it has licensed the television anime adaptation of Mari Okada and Nao Emoto's O Maidens in Your Savage Season (Araburu Kisetsu no Otome-domo yo) manga. The license is for exclusive worldwide rights outside Asia, Germany, France, and Australia. The anime will have a streaming simulcast this summer, and a home video release will follow.

Sentai Filmworks describes the series:

When the girls in the literature club ask themselves, “What do you want to do before you die?” one of them gives a most surprising response. Now they're all preoccupied (for better or for worse) by their friend's unexpected answer! Soon each of these very different young women find themselves propelled along the uncertain road to adulthood, their emotional journeys taking them down paths as surprising as their friend's unconventional wish. Poignant, painful and awkward in turns, O Maidens in Your Savage Season chronicles with humor and with grace the universal rites of passage so endemic to growing up.

The anime will air on MBS, TBS, and BS-TBS' Animeism programming block, starting on July 5 late at night (effectively July 6) at 2:25 a.m. The show will also air on AT-X starting on July 8.

Masahiro Ando (Sword of the Stranger, Hanasaku Iroha - Blossoms for Tomorrow, Sirius the Jaeger, Snow White with the Red Hair) and Takurō Tsukada (Our love has always been 10 centimeters apart., Fate/Grand Order: Moonlight/Lostroom) are directing the anime at Lay-duce, and Okada herself is writing the scripts. Kaori Ishii (animation director for The Eden of Grisaia, Rewrite) is in charge of the character designs. Momo Asakura will perform the ending theme song.

Kodansha Comics released the manga's first volume in English on April 9.

Okada and Emoto launched O Maidens in Your Savage Season in Kodansha's Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine in December 2016, and the series is ongoing. The title is the manga series debut of screenwriter Okada.
