Sentai Picks Up Ikoku Meiro no Croisee

Sentai has announced that it has licensed the television anime adaptation of Ikoku Meiro no Croisee to be released under the name Croisee in a Foreign Labyrinth ~ The Animation.

The anime premiered in Japan on July 3rd and is currently running there. Sentai plans to release the series on DVD in North America sometime during 2012.

Synopsis: The story takes place in the second half of the 19th century, as Japanese culture gains popularity in the West. A young Japanese girl, Yune, accompanies a French traveller, Oscar, on his journey back to France, and offers to help at the family's ironwork shop in Paris. Oscar's nephew and shopowner Claude reluctantly accepts to take care of Yune, and we learn how those two, who have so little in common, get to understand each other and live together in the Paris of the 1800s.

This looks great! A hopefully different premise and if the sample artwork is any indication, a visual pleasure. I 'm keeping tabs on this!
