Gundam 00/Fullmetal Alchemist's Seiji Mizushima to direct slice-of-life comedy

The Crunchyroll media-distribution website has announced on Thursday that it will be simulcasting the television anime adaptation of Yuto's Hanamaru Kindergarten slice-of-life comedy manga. The story centers on three kindergartners and their teachers. Director Seiji Mizushima (first Fullmetal Alchemist anime, Mobile Suit Gundam 00) is working with the veteran production studio Gainax (Neon Genesis Evangelion, Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann) on the project.

Crunchyroll's Hanamaru Kindergarten video streams will be available in the United States, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom. Crunchyroll's subscribed Anime Members can see each episode within an hour of its Japanese premiere. Other users can see the same episode in standard definition for free one week later. The first episode will begin streaming on Sunday at 10:00 a.m. PST.

Update: More background information added.
