Uta∽Kata To Be Released In North America

The day that I thought would never arrive has arrived.

Uta∽Kata, an anime series that I consider to be the one of the greatest ever made – second only to Giant Robo The Animation, in fact – is to be released this November on DVD with full English subtitles. This release is being handled by Section 23 and Sentai Filmworks, who, along with their collective predecessor, ADV Films, have produced some of the best English-language anime releases in North America and the UK, and I can think of no company that I would rather have produce an English adaptation; I’m sure that they’ll do a worthy and respectful job.

Instead of explaining the series, I’m just going to copy×paste the synopsis from the press release. It’s a better description than I could ever give.

“Before you make a deal with a girl in a mirror, reflect seriously on the source of the offer. Ichika Tachibana fails to take this advice in order to retrieve a lost charm, and as a result suddenly ends up with the magical forces of a Djinn at her command. Sounds like a good deal, right? Wrong. At first things seem wondrous, with her new friend Manatsu assisting her via text messages and the occasional spell; but as her powers grow, Ichika’s situation quickly goes from magical to nightmarish, and she finds herself drawn into an ever expanding web of deceptions, lies and increasingly dangerous situations. For what she’s really done is subjected herself to seeing mankind as the Djinn see them. Unfortunately, they don’t seem to place a high value on human life. Not all fairy tales are for children as small charms lead to deadly conclusions in UTA-KATA- {sic} THE COMPLETE SERIES!”

I urge all of you to buy a copy. It’s a Region 1 USA-only release, so you’ll have to use a computer or a multi-region DVD player. Trust me. It’s worth it.1

I cannot thank you enough, Sentai Filmworks. Now, if you were to release Angel Beats!, I think that I’d have to marry you. ㋼
