US high school anime ‘Smyrana High School’ gets US distribution deal

Qualification

US high schools and anime are getting the same kind of exposure in the US as their anime counterparts.

The year’s first US anime to be distributed in the country has been released, and now a second, titled Nova High School, has been made available for pre-order.

The series, set to air on US cable channel Nickelodeon in 2020, follows the lives of two teenage girls from two different worlds as they try to make it as students at a high school in New York City.

The anime will be available to watch on Netflix and Amazon Prime Video in the United States, Canada, Mexico and Europe.

The first US animated film, The Little Mermaid , has been re-released in the same year.

A fourth US animated anime, Sailor Moon Crystal , was also re-issued in 2019, with the new anime based on the manga and anime of the same name.

The Disney film Mulan and the film The Princess and the Frog have both been reissued in the past year, with Mulan’s latest animated film being released on July 20.

The US is the world’s second-largest anime market, with more than 10 million people watching animated films each year.

However, the majority of anime films and shows are made in Japan, where most are produced and marketed.
