Complete TV series available as a Litebox-style DVD set on April 2, 2013.

GRIMES, Iowa, >Dec. 12, 2012 – Anime producer and distributor Right Stuf, Inc. and its Lucky Penny Entertainment label are pleased to announce the HYAKKO Complete TV Series DVD set will be available on April 2, 2013.

It features animation by Nippon Animation, as well as the vocal talents of Aya Hirano (“Haruhi Suzumiya,” “Lucy” in Fairy Tail), Fumiko Orikasa (“Rukia” in Bleach), Michiko Neya (“Riza Hawkeye” in Fullmetal Alchemist), and Yurika Ochiai (“Keiko” in Uta~Kata).

About HYAKKO

Ever have a crazy best friend? The kind who jumps out of windows, makes robot clones of herself, and (accidentally) punches teachers in the gut?

Torako does all these things and more. She’s a force of nature, and thanks to her, nothing at Kamizono Academy ever goes quite as planned. Looking for the right classroom turns into a comical case of breaking and entering. Sketching fellow students in art class turns into a racy photo shoot. No one can predict what Torako will do next, but wherever she and her friends go, laughter is sure to follow.

The complete 13-episode television series!

You guys sure like licensing shows with all female casts don't you. Just another series I would never watch.

Will there be a release of the ova too, or is that a no go?

We don't hold the license for the OVA/mini-ep that was bundled with the manga, so as of now, our release plans just include the TV series. Hope this info helps!
