The network also unveiled a new key visual and revealed that the new anime season will premiere on NHK-E TV on April 8. New episodes will air every Saturday at 5:35 p.m.

The RIN-NE 2 television anime series premiered in Japan on April 9. Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired, and Sentai Filmworks licensed the series for home video.

The anime's first 25-episode season premiered in April 2015. Crunchyroll also streamed the series as it aired, and Sentai Filmworks released the series on DVD and Blu-ray Disc in two sets in July and September.

Takahashi launched the manga in Shonen Sunday in 2009 after ending her long-running series Inuyasha in the same magazine. The RIN-NE manga's 34th compiled book volume shipped in Japan on December 16. Viz Media is releasing the manga in English, and it released the 22nd compiled volume on November 8.
