Nozomi Entertainment is one of the anime industry’s oldest publishers. Their first release was Osamu Tezuka’s Astro Boy in 1989. Since then Nozomi Entertainment has continued to expand their offerings to a wide selection of anime classics and modern favorites.
Nozomi Entertainment is the publishing side of Right Stuf Inc. the largest online anime and manga focused retailer in the United States and Canada. In 2014, Right Stuf Anime announced a partnership with Sunrise to bring the Mobile Suit Gundam franchise to North American audiences. The Nozomi Entertainment team has been working hard on the Mobile Suit Gundam project to release fan favorite titles including Mobile Suit Gundam, Turn A Gundam, Mobile Suit Gundam ZZ and more!
“I’ve lost all hope in this world!”
Nozomu Itoshiki is a teacher who’s at the end of his rope. Literally. He’s trying to hang himself from a beautiful cherry tree, when one of his students, a girl named Kafuka, butts in and saves his life. She can’t help it, though. Kafuka is an abnormally cheerful girl who can only see the good in every situation.
In fact, all of Nozomu’s students are a bit odd. Chiri is a hyper-perfectionist, Matoi is a female stalker, Usui is a balding masochist, and the list goes on. Nozomu is supposed to be preparing these young men and women for the future – but since his idea of “preparing for the future” involves tying nooses and buying funeral plots, he might not be the best man for the job.
Filled with dark humor and sharp social commentary, Sayonara, Zetsubou-sensei finally has its first-ever North American release. Come lose all hope with this absurd comedy!

Ancient ruins have been discovered beneath Makoto’s high school, but he has bigger things to deal with. He has evidence that the conniving Student Council President, Jinnai, is guilty of election fraud! But before Makoto gets his chance to testify, a strange light from the ruins transports Makoto, Jinnai, Jinnai’s sister Nanami, and their history teacher Fujisawa, to a mysterious land... the Magnificent World of El-Hazard.
There, these four unwitting travelers find a world split by forces of good and evil, where giant insects known as the Bugrom battle against humanity, and beautiful priestesses use magic to harness the power of the elements. Nothing in El-Hazard seems to make sense, but one thing is clear: they’re caught in the middle of a fantastical war with no way home!

But they had better learn to work together, because they’re about to go head to head with the mighty Raalgon Empire! For better or for worse, the Earth’s fate has been placed in the hands of a man who’s either a total idiot, or an absolute genius…
