The media site Crunchyroll announced on Monday that it will begin streaming the You and Me. (Kimi to Boku.) television anime series on Monday at 1:00 p.m. EDT.
Kiichi Hotta's original manga and its anime adaptation follow the lives of four teenaged boys — the good-looking twins Yuta and Yuki Asaba, the effeminate Shun Matsuoka, and the class head Kaname Tsukahara — who have known each other for most of their lives. Their friendship has its ups and downs, but they remain close right into high school. A half-Japanese transfer student named Chizuru Tachibana joins their group and adds a new dynamic to the everyday adolescent friendships depicted in this comedic anime.
The 26-episode anime will be available to Crunchyroll premium members worldwide except in Asia. It will be available to free members in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, the Netherlands, Norway, and Sweden.
The manga began in Gangan Powered magazine in 2004, and it moved to Monthly G Fantasy in 2009. The 10th compiled book volume shipped last month. The manga is unrelated to the similarly titled Flash anime and live-action film Kimi to Boku from Shigeto Yamagara.
Update: More background information added.
