Sentai Filmworks kicked off the week with an unexpected anime license, this time in the form of 1997 comedy anime Hareluya II Boy. The 25-episode series is coming to select digital outlets, followed by a home video release at a later date.

Based on the 1992-1999 Shonen Jump manga by Haruto Umezawa, Hareluya II Boy was directed by Kiyoshi Egami (City Hunter ’91), with Takahiro Kishida (Haikyu!!) handling character designs for the TRIANGLE STAFF (Venus Wars, Serial Experiments Lain) production. Here’s how Sentai describes it:
Hareluya Hibino has one ambition in life: to conquer the entire world! Despite his tough exterior, he’s not a bad person, and when push comes to shove, he’ll do his best to help those in need. Together with aspiring painter Kiyoshiro, Hareluya will take on whatever curveballs life may throw his way.
