Default Sentai Kids - Sentai Filmworks Reboot Of ADV Kids



Quote:
Sentai Filmworks announced on Wednesday that it is launching a new label called Sentai Kids, which is focused on educational and children's content. The label's inaugural release will be Sanrio's Hello Kitty & Friends Ė Let's Learn Together animated series.

According to license distributor CREi Inc., Hello Kitty & Friends Ė Let's Learn Together has 21 seven-minute episodes. Sentai Kids describes it as series where "Hello Kitty, her sister Mimi and all new friends help children and families learn about the world around them, from experimenting with shapes and learning to take care of flowers, to studying dance and practicing good manners."

The series will be available on home video and digitally in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand.

Sentai Kids is Sentai Filmworks' first label aimed at children. Sentai Filmworks' predecessor ADV Films had an ADV Kids label, though it published only non-anime titles. ADV Films released earlier Hello Kitty anime and other children's titles under its main label.

I mean anime is only for kids, right? So I can't wait to see High School of the Dead, Legend of the Overfiend and Bible Black in the coming future...

(lol)

If it doesn't work out they could repurpose it into a loli label.

Letís not forget the original Violence Jack OVA, the original Berserk anime, and X: The Movie (which unironically needs a Blu release because itís one of the more underappreciated visual anime films).

Agreed. Rintaro, love him, or hate him, was a visual genius.

^^ I suppose the level of success will ultimately depend on pricing.
Anime of any sort is not exactly cheap so if parents are flipping a coin betwixt this and a "Dora The Explorer" vid for $7.99, guess where the purchase money goes.

It also will depend on if you can buy it in stores unlike their other titles. The average person wouldnít know about these titles if they stick to just the usual buying online. Kids titles need a release in places like Wal-Mart, Best Buy and Target where kids and their parents can see it in person.

The series is being split into two DVD collections, retailing at $14.98 ($9.99 on Sentai's store, and will likely have a similar discount at Walmart/Target). And they're dual-audio.

I just want Sentai to poop out some more Kaiju/Toku films on Blu-Ray. Every film that Media Blasters had the rights to release should go to them, since MB can't be bothered to keep their titles available.

Cool news. It would be cool if they pick up Magical DoReMi and Beet the Vandel Buster for this label.

Donít think they will do a 200+ episode Magical Girl series unless they only get the 4Kids episodes. But I would love to get it. Tokyo Mew Mew would probably be easier at 52 episodes but with likely a re-dub. Thereís also the Glitter Force which should be even easier.

It sounds awesome!
Can't wait to start buying <3

The only thing is, I may opt for digital just because it seems like it's 1080p on youtube, but a DVD only release....
