“SHIN KOIHIME MUSO exemplifies everything which hardcore anime fans are looking for in anime today,” said Vince Shortino, President of Crunchyroll’s Japan office. “Its ornate visuals, character relationships and fan service all create the ideal core show for the Fall.”
SHIN KOIHIME MUSO will be available worldwide outside of Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and French-speaking Europe in standard definition free of charge to all visitors of Crunchyroll’s website and across the Crunchyroll network one week after airing in Japan. Crunchyroll’s Anime Members will receive early access to the program.
