At its panel during the 2014 Anime Expo today, anime and video game publisher NIS America announced two new titles for anime fans to look forward to seeing on shelves later this year, “Hanasaku Iroha the Movie ~Home Sweet Home~” and “Nyaruko: Crawling with Love!” season two.
“Hanasaku Iroha the Movie ~Home Sweet Home~” is a feature film which takes place before the Bonbori Festival, as Ohana’s friend Yuina comes to Kissuiso for training. While Ohana is cleaning up after Yuina, she finds a logbook from when her mother, Satsuki, was a young girl working at the inn. With the rest of the Kissuiso staff preoccupied by a blackout, Ohana reads the logbook, getting a glimpse at the struggles her mother faced, and she realizes that they may not be all that different.
NIS America will release “Hanasaku Iroha the Movie ~Home Sweet Home~” on Blu-ray, with Japanese audio and English subtitles, on October 14, 2014. It will be released in a premium edition ($49.99), which includes a 32-page, full-color, hardcover art book, along with a hardcover slipcase.
Season two of “Nyaruko: Crawling with Love!” picks up with things seemingly settling down and Mahiro growing accustomed to his protection detail of Nyaruko, Kuko and Hasuta. However, Nyaruko and Tamao begin scheming to turn up the charm, to sway Mahiro’s resolve, as Kuko reconsiders her own stance on love. Add in a monstrous monkey, a visitor from Kuko’s past and a world in need of saving, and hijinks will ensue.
NIS America will release “Nyaruko: Crawling with Love!” season two, in Japanese with English subtitles, in a 2 Blu-ray discs premium edition ($64.99) on November 4, 2014. The premium edition will come in a hardcover slipcase and includes a 36-page, full-color, hardcover art book.
