The latest acquisition by the North American anime distributor Sentai FIlmworks is the odd television anime series Tsuritama. It is an original project of Fuji TV’s Noitamina and Mononoke’s director Kenji Nakamura.
The North American release of this fishing-themed anime, that premiered this April 12, will be for selected digital platforms and home video.
Tsuritama tells the story of four friends. Yuki, Haru, Akira and Natsuki all have different take on life and extremely different habits. As not one of them is like the others, there are a lot of funny situations to come. To be precise i, if we want to describe their personages, something like this would come to mind: one is a short fuse, another is too shy to even speak in class, the third won’t stay anywhere near groups of people and the fourth one is … an alien. The four of them are related by fish (they just adore fishing).
