The vibrant story of camaraderie returns to be broadcast on the leader in online streaming content this spring
San Francisco, Calif. (March 30, 2012) – After the success of season one (1), YOU AND ME. – the slice of boys life encapsulating the heartwarming story of friendship – returns to Crunchyroll this spring, starting on Monday April 2 at 10 am PDT. More information can be found on www.crunchyroll.com/youandme2.
YOU AND ME. will be available to Crunchyroll premium members worldwide except for Japan. For free members, YOU AND ME. will be available in the following territories: US, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, the Netherlands, Norway and Sweden.
Crunchyroll’s Senior Brand Manager Michelle Hwang said, “Nearly a year ago when we first aired YOU AND ME, our users seemed to instantly fall in love with this series, as the rich storytelling served as a perfect contrast to the passive, pastel colors blended throughout the animation itself. This season, we can only hope for more of the same and deeper development of the characters that we’ve grown to love.”
“Friends since kindergarten and seemingly like blood brothers, YOU AND ME. follows the lives of Yuta and Yuki Asaba, Shun Matsuoka and Kaname Tsukahara; as well as transfer student Chizuru Tachibana who joins the circle of friends. Together we will watch as they laugh, dance, cry and share the memories of growing up together in everyday life.”
Episodes can be accessed from Crunchyroll.com, the free iPad and iPhone application, the Android application, Roku, Google TV, Boxee, Vizio VIA, WD TV Live and additional set-top channels, and affiliate partners.
Crunchyroll premium members will have access to the largest anime and drama selection, same-day access for simulcasted titles, no advertisements and can be viewed in up to 1080p quality on selected titles.
