Sentai Filmworks Acquire ‘Urara Meirocho’ for Upcoming Simulcast Season

Ahead of the show’s first episode airing on Japanese televisions next month, North American anime publisher Sentai Filmworks have confirmed they hold rights to Urara Meirocho in their supported regions. Episodes are likely to begin simulcasting via select digital outlets shortly after the Japanese broadcast, and a home video release will also follow in the coming years.

Urara Meirocho is a supernatural comedy which tells the tale of four young girls who aspire to become fortune tellers. In this tale, girls from all over the country come to live in Meiro-cho in order to train to become the top uranaishi. One day, a 15-year-old girl named Chiya enters the gates, but she has another, secret reason for wanting to become an uranaishi. Together with three very different girls, Kon, Koume, and Nono, Chiya gets started as a fortune teller’s apprentice. 

This anime is adapted from the original 4-panel manga by Harikamo. This anime features character designs by Mai Otsuka (Non Non Biyori), direction by Youhei Suzuki (Hentai Prince and Stony Cat) and series composition by Deko Akao (Noragami).
