San Francisco, Calif. (April 5, 2012) – Unlock the challenges and mystery of the philosopher’s puzzles this season on Crunchyroll with the addition of PHI BRAIN season two (2), which is set to broadcast on Sunday April 8 at 2:30 am PDT. Crunchyroll will also air season one (1) prior to first broadcast of the first episode of season two (2). More information can be found on www.crunchyroll.com/phibrain.
PHI BRAIN will be available to Crunchyroll’s audience in North America.
Crunchyroll’s Senior Brand Manager Keith Kawamura said, “One of the most fascinating things about this series is that it seamlessly combines high-powered moments of action synonymous with shonen series with a mental stimulation only a puzzle can provide, all wrapped up into one neat package. We can hardly wait to see what season two (2) has in store for us this season!”
“Kaito, a puzzle-loving high school freshman, is selected as a candidate for ‘PHI BRAIN.’ He and his friend Nonoha find an ‘unsolvable puzzle’ near their school. The puzzle turns out to be a life-threatening ‘philosopher’s puzzle’ created by the mysterious group P.O.G. (Puzzle Of God). After successfully solving the puzzle, Kaito is designated as a Solver and is joined by other Solvers as they battle P.O.G. all over the world by solving the ‘philosopher’s puzzles.’”
