The Crunchyroll media-distribution website has announced that it will begin simulcasting the Natsu no Arashi 2 anime sequel series on Sunday, October 4 at 11:00 a.m. PDT. Natsu no Arashi! Akinai-chū is TV Tokyo and King Records' second television anime adaptation of Jin Kobayashi's Natsu no Arashi! science-fiction romance manga. The creator of School Rumble centers his newest story on a boy named Hajime Yasaka who meets an older high school girl named Sayoko "Arashi" Arashiyama in an old town coffee shop. "Arashi" happens to have a secret that Hajime learns one fateful summer vacation.
Crunchyroll's video stream of Natsu no Arashi! Akinai-chū will be available in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, New Zealand, and Australia. Crunchyroll's subscribed Anime Members can see each episode one hour after its Japanese premiere while other users can see the same episode one week later. The website is already streaming the first 13-episode Natsu no Arashi! anime series, and ANN is also co-hosting it.
