Hey all, earlier today I’m sure that you all saw the post put up by Archmage. While a little rough, there was just too much for someone to cover while it was happening, so I’m stepping in to give a full rundown of all the news that Sentai shared.
First, is the announcement for a summer sale on their website shop.sentaifilmworks.com running now until 7/22. Offering a whopping 85% off on select items, it’s the best time ever to stock up on any anime that you’ve had your eye on waiting for a sale. It won’t get much better than this. In addition, there’s also a special promo code to get free shipping as well.

There are also a run of limited editions coming out as well for purchase and pre-order.

That said, we’ve got some great announcements as well for this summer season that Sentai is coming out with.
The Thousand Musketeers: A story of a brutal world dictatorship that has banned all modern firearms. The only options for rebellion are antique muskets and blunderbusses. Somehow a group of rebels manages to turn famous guns into people to fight the Empire with their sense of nobility. Based off the mobile game of the same name.
Revue Starlight: A song and dance revue troupe loved throughout the world. Two young girls dream of joining the troupe. However, they’re separated until they turn 16 in which fate forces them to audition to gain acceptance into the revue along with other Stage Girls.
Mr Tonegawa Middle Management Blues: President Hyodo is tired of dealing with debtors, so he orders mid-level manager, Yukio Tonegawa, to form a group of men and devise a series of sadistic games, called the Game of Death, to collect what is owed to him. Initially, Tonegawa and his black-suited men, known as Team Tonegawa, are hesitant to participate but quickly discover that their new line of work is more enjoyable than they originally thought.
As well as these, there will be new dubs as well. Scum’s wish will be coming out for streaming service in September. Love, Chunibyo and Other Delusions!, Takunomi, My Girlfriend is Shobitch and UQ Holder will be streaming on available platforms as well throughout the summer season. Coming out a little after the summer season with it’s dubbed episodes will be Made in Abyss coming out in October, and as you’ve probably guessed, it’s going to have a limited edition set as well so be sure to keep your eyes out.
