Crunchyroll will stream both series with English subtitles and Funimation will stream the series with English dubs. Premiere dates and regional availability have not yet been announced.

Crunchyroll also streamed a trailer for Karakai Jōzu no Takagi-san with English subtitles.

Karakai Jōzu no Takagi-san will premiere within the "Anime no Me" programming block on Tokyo MX on January 8 at 11:00 p.m., before airing later on YTV and BS11.

Hiroaki Akagi (Hina Logic - from Luck & Logic) is directing Karakai Jōzu no Takagi-san at Shinei Animation (Elegant Yokai Apartment Life, Doraemon). Michiko Yokote (RIN-NE, Genshiken, ReLIFE) is handling the series composition, and Aya Takano (Himouto!

The anime adapts Sōichirō Yamamoto's Karakai Jōzu no Takagi-san (Takagi-san, the Master of Teasing) manga. Funimation describes the story:

Tired of being mercilessly teased by his classmate Takagi, Nishikata has vowed to get her back and successfully tease the girl that's made him blush countless times. After all, if you blush, you lose! But getting vengeance isn't so easy when every attempt blows up in his face. Will Nishikata ever make Takagi blush or will he gain something more fulfilling from his bumbling attempts?

Dagashi Kashi 2 will premiere on TBS on Thursday, January 11 late at night (effectively Friday morning), and it will share a timeslot with Takunomi.. Each episode will be 15 minutes long.

Funimation describes the story:

The queen of succulent snacks is back with Dagashi Kashi season two! As Kokonotsu continues on his path to become a manga artist, Hotaru refuses to give up on bringing him to the side of Japanese snack foods. With new faces and new tasty treats to try, will Kokonotsu finally be swayed to take over his father's sweet shop or is it time to move on from this small town and follow his manga dreams?

Satoshi Kuwabara (Dr. Pinoko no Mori no Bōken, Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal) is directing the anime at Tezuka Productions, replacing director Shigehito Takayanagi. feel., the previous studio that handled the first season, is now credited with setting cooperation.
