SANTA MONICA, CA (March 4, 2013) – Following its recent release of the Oreimo Blu-ray Disc Set last month, Aniplex of America Inc. announced the acquisition of the second season of Oreimo and that the series will be streaming online. Oreimo’s highly anticipated sequel will be available streaming just hours after its initial airing in Japan. After Kyosuke and the others overcome the crisis of Kirino suddenly leaving to study abroad, what kind of craziness will her “life counseling” cause next? In addition to their streaming plans, Aniplex of America is also planning on a home release version of Oreimo 2 on disc. Details about the physical release will be announced on a later date.
A synopsis on Oreimo 2: Kyosuke Kosaka is a high schooler who has been leading a quiet, humdrum life. However, his life is turned upside-down when his little sister, Kirino, comes to him for “life counseling.” It turns out that Kirino, a well-rounded winner in life, has many otaku-ish hobbies and loves anime and games. Kyosuke sincerely takes on Kirino’s request to tackle life counseling. And so, as more and more people get involved–including Kuroneko and Saori Vageena, whom Kirino met via social networks; Kirino’s friends, Ayase and Kanako, and Kyosuke’s childhood friend, Manami–changes to their icy cold brother-sister relationship begin to appear. After they overcome the crisis of Kirino suddenly leaving to study abroad, what kind of craziness will her “life counseling” cause next?
“Oreimo is a very popular title with a fan base that continues to grow” says Hideki Goto, the president of Animation Business of Aniplex of America. “We look forward to giving the fans the opportunity towatch Oreimo 2 just hours after it airs in Japan.”
