Preview Video for the Second Season of My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU

The official website for the second season of the My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU television anime series has started streaming the first promotional video for the series.

The second season is being produced by studio feel. instead of Brains Base, and Kei Oikawa replaces Ai Yoshimura as director. Yuichi Tanaka replaces Yuu Shindou as character designer, but Shotaro Suga returns for series composition and monaca is still in charge of the music.

The series focuses on an antisocial high school student named Hachiman Hikigaya who has a distorted view on life and no friends or girlfriend. When he sees his classmates talking excitedly about living their adolescent lives, he mutters, “They’re a bunch of liars.” When he is asked about his future dreams, he responds, “Not working.” A teacher gets Hachiman to join the volunteer “service club,” which also has the school’s prettiest girl, Yukino Yukinoshita, as one of its members.

Crunchyroll simulcast the first season of My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU in 2013.

I am embedding the promotional video for the second season below, and I apologize in advance to any of my readers who are unable to view it due to region blocking.

Yuu Watase Talks About the New Fushigi Yugi Manga

Yuu Watase, the creator of the Fushigi Yugi and Arata: The Legend manga, clarified on her blog that Shogakukan’s Monthly Flowers magazine is running her Fushigi Yugi: Curious Tales of the Byakko manga as a yomikiri, not a full series, in February 2015. Yomikiri can mean a self-contained short story of a few chapters or less. The term usually means a one-shot story, but Monthly Flowers magazine is announcing that the manga “begins” in February.

The March 2015 issue of Monthly Flowers announced that the new manga will begin in the April 2015 issue, which will be published in Japan on February 28, 2015.

Watase previously announced that she would restart her Arata: The Legend manga in 2015.

The World God Only Knows – Goddesses Is Now on Hulu

The Fandom Post is reporting that all of the episodes of The World God Only Knows – Goddesses anime is now available for streaming on Hulu. The 12 episodes are available with Japanese audio and English subtitles. Hulu Plus subscribers can stream the series on their TV app and other digital devices.

The series was produced by manglobe and directed by Satoshi Osedo.

The story of The World God Only Knows – Goddesses is:

Dating Game master Keima Katsuragi’s skills at conquering hearts in the virtual world have translated into real life so well that he and Spirit Hunter associate Elsie have already captured 14 of the runaway spirits that have been attaching themselves to the souls of different girls. But is even the God of Conquests up to the task of romancing six REAL Goddesses? The fate of the world may depend on it, because if Keima can’t do it six more times, a renegade faction of demons will use the Goddesses power to unleash an even more dangerous and powerful group of demons. And that could mean the devastation of both Heaven and the Earth! (Not to mention Keima losing his own head.) And if the situation wasn’t difficult enough, it seems that the Goddesses souls are hidden inside girls that Keima has already had to make fall in love with him before. And THAT means that, as part of the magic spell, they’ve all forgotten about him. Or have they? It’s time to romance, conquer and repeat as Keima levels up to Deity level in THE WORLD ONLY GOD KNOWS – GODDESSES!
