HOUSTON, AUGUST 24, 2015 – Make-believe creatures and demons take a back seat to the terrors and monsters of the real world as Sentai Filmworks announces its latest acquisition, AURA.

As a former sufferer, Ichiro Sato once spent much of his life living in a world of delusions. When he encounters a similarly afflicted young woman at his new school, however, he’s simultaneously forced to confront both the students who bully her and the fantasies that continue to simmer within his own mind.

When the Prime Minister is attacked by a mysterious new organization, suspicions flare as to who is ultimately responsible, and who the public can actually trust.
