Sentai acquires The World is Still Beautiful

Sentai Filmworks is proud to announce its latest acquisition, THE WORLD IS STILL BEAUTIFUL. Based on the original manga by Dai Shiina and broadcasted by Nippon TV in Japan, the story follows the adventures of Nike Remercier, fourth princess of the Rain Dukedom, who loses a game of chance with her older sisters and is shipped off to marry the terrifying ruler of the Sun Kingdom who conquered the world only three years after ascending the throne. However, upon arriving she discovers that King Livius is nothing like she expected, and that there are sinister forces at work in the kingdom that can only be defeated if both young royals can find a way to work together. Join Sun King Livi and rainmaking Princess Nike as they weave together a destiny romance full of light and rain.
