Crunchyroll to Simulcast Love Rice 2 Anime

posted on by Karen Ressler
New season premieres Saturday

Crunchyroll announced on Friday that it will stream the second season of Love Rice as it airs in Japan. The stream will premiere streaming worldwide outside of Asia on Saturday at 10:45 a.m. EDT.

The first 12-episode anime series premiered on April 5. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan.

The anime project anthropomorphizes rice (kome in Japanese) into schoolboys. At the Kokuritsu Inaho Academy ("Rice Ear Academy," a wordplay on national schools), five new rice-inspired students attempt to supplant bread as the popular grain at the school. The new students form the "Love Rice" unit and challenge themselves to perform at the "Harvest Show" to show the delicious appeal of rice grains. The "heartwarming 'kome'dy with laughs and passion" promises to let audiences rediscover the virtues of rice ("Japan's soul food").
