Sentai Sinks its Teeth Into “Killing Bites”
HOUSTON, TX — October 20, 2020 — Sentai announced today that it acquired distribution rights to anime series Killing Bites, based on the manga of the same name, for the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Ireland and Mexico.
By the time Yuya Nomoto discovers his so-called friends have duped him into a clandestine plot to kidnap a high school girl, they’re already dead. Things go from bad to worse as Yuya is dragged into a cutthroat world of underground bloodsport known as Killing Bites, where Therianthropes — brutal gene-edited killing machines — fight to the death for rival, power-hungry forces who manipulate society from the shadows.
A production of studio LIDENFILMS (The Heroic Legend of Arslan, Berserk, Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches), Killing Bites is directed by Yasuto Nishikata (Undefeated Bahamut Chronicle, The Seven Deadly Sins, The Seven Deadly Sins: Prisoners of the Sky), with music from Yasuharu Takanashi (Log Horizon, The Severing Crime Edge, Fairy Tail). The series stars Sora Amamiya (Akame Ga Kill!, MONSTER MUSUME: Everyday Life with Monster Girls, From the New World) as Hitomi Uzaki and Wataru Hatano (Engaged to the Unidentified, Yumeria, One Punch Man) as Yuya Nomoto.
Killing Bites will be released on home video and select digital outlets.
