Flower Mound, TX (October 1, 2011) – FUNimation® Entertainment today announced that it has acquired the simulcast, home entertainment, broadcast, digital, mobile, and merchandise rights to the sci-fi series “Guilty Crown” debuting on Fuji TV’s late night noitaminA block in October.

The Production I.G. produced series is directed by Tetsuro Araki (“Death Note,” “High School of the Dead”). The series script supervisor is Hiroyuki Yoshino (“Macross Frontier”), while original character designs are created by redjuice, the artist best known as the illustrator for the music group, Supercell. Supercell’s musician, Ryo, is composing the music.

The anime is set in Japan in 2039, 10 years after the “Apocalypse Virus” devastated the land. A multinational orgnization known as GHQ brings the lawless country under control, but at the price of Japan’s sovereignty. One day, an unsociable 17-year-old high school student named Shū encounters Inori Yuzuriha, a female singer who is part of the resistance to liberate Japan. Together with Gai Tsutsugami (Shū’s 17-year-old rival who is a young “Jiikundō” pilot in the resistance), Shū and Inori fight with mysterious innate abilities known as “imperial powers.”

New York Anime Fest will screen the first two episodes of “Guilty Crown” on Saturday, October 15. The screening marks the world premiere of the series’ second episode, which won’t air in Japan until October 20. The convention will host an additional screening of the first two episodes of “Guilty Crown” along with a Q&A/focus panel on Sunday, October 16.

FUNimation will also simulcast the series starting the same date as its Japanese broadcast debut.
