NIS America announced at its anime panel at Anime Expo on Saturday that it will release the Haiyore! Nyaruko-san W television anime series under the title Nyaruko: Crawling with Love! Second Season.
NISA will release the 12-episode series in a premium edition on November 4 in a two Blu-ray Disc set with English subtitles for US$64.99. The release will include a hardcover art book with an episode guide, character information, and full-color illustrations. Video extras will include a clean opening and ending and Japanese trailers.
NISA describes the story:
Mahiro has become accustomed to his protection detail of Nyaruko, Kuko, and Hasuta making his life interesting. Nyaruko starts scheming with Tamao to turn up the charm and sway Mahiro's resolve, while Kuko reconsiders her own stance on love. Things get tricky as the gang deals with a monstrous monkey, an unexpected visitor from Kuko's past, balancing love and duty, and of course, saving the world.
Xebec animated the series and Tsuyoshi Nagasawa (Kyo no Gononi, MM!, To Love-Ru) directed the series. The series stars Kana Asumi as Nyaruko, Eri Kitamura as Mahiro Yasaka, Miyu Matsuki as Kuko, and Rie Kugimiya as Hasuta.
NIS America also announced that it will release Hanasaku Iroha the Movie ~Home Sweet Home~ on Blu-ray on October 14.
The premium set will retail for US$49.99 and include a hardcover art book with scene-by-scene director commentary, staff member interviews, concept sketches, and setting illustrations. Video extras will include Japanese commercials.

In Hanasaku Iroha: Home Sweet Home film's brand-new story, Ohana Matsumae, the lead character who moved from Tokyo to a hot spring inn, discovers an old business log. With it, Ohana learns about her mother Satsuki's past when she was 16 years old. That was when Satsuki left her home to pursue her dreams in Tokyo. Masahiro Ando (Sword of the Stranger, Blast of Tempest) returned to direct the film at P.A. Works. Mari Okada (anohana, Black Butler, Toradora!) handled the series composition, and Mel Kishida (So-Ra-No-Wo-To) handled the original character design.
