NIS America Licenses Usagi Drop

It was announced at their Anime Central panel today.

Usagi Drop

Via ANN
NIS America (NISA), the American subsidiary of the Nippon Ichi Software game company, announced at its panel at Anime Central on Saturday that it will release the Bunny Drop (Usagi Drop) television anime series in a premium edition on Blu-ray Disc and DVD on August 7. The release will include four bonus episodes and a hardcover art book.

The anime studio Production I.G adapted the 11-episode television anime series based on Yumi Unita's original manga. Yen Press released the fifth volume of the manga last month. In the manga and anime adaptation, 30-year-old bachelor Daikichi (Hiroshi Tsuchida) discovers a little girl named Rin (Ayu Matsuura) in his grandfather's garden while at his grandfather's funeral. Rin is the 6-year-old daughter of Daikichi's grandfather, and Daikichi decides to take her in when no one in the family accepts the responsibility.

The manga was nominated for last year's Eisner Awards. The manga also received a live-action film version adaptation, which opened in Japan last August.

The anime ran in Fuji TV's Noitamina block from July through September 2011. Crunchyroll streamed the series in various countries as it aired in Japan.

I'm happy to hear this since Usagi Drop was one of my top favorites of last year. I'll look forward to picking it up later this year.

The only time ive wanted a mangaka to get hit by a bus. I would have been happy to buy this but its all tainted now by even the threat of a sequel.

Nice to see this licensed, but it's going to be way over priced since it's a NISA release.
