FUNimation to Release Risque Romantic Comedy B Gata H Kei

Flower Mound, TX (July 1, 2011) – FUNimation Entertainment announced today that it has acquired the U.S. rights to distribute the anime series “B Gata H Kei – Yamada’s First Time.” These rights include home entertainment, broadcast, digital and merchandise.

This risque romantic comedy, from director Yusuke Yamamoto (“Sgt Frog”, “Welcome to the NHK”), is based on the manga series of the same name published by Shueisha. Both follow Yamada, a boy-crazy school girl with distracting daydreams about future bedmates – but before she can get this saucy sex life underway, she realizes she first needs to lose her virginity! She knows to whom she will bestow this prize: her classmate Kosuda. However, a successful seduction of Kosuda is more difficult than this lusty teen had counted on.

FUNimation will release the 12-episode series on DVD and Blu-ray in 2012.
