The ever-growing, ever-expanding back catalog of anime at Crunchyroll gets a big +2 today in the form of a pair of new additions from Nozomi Entertainment: Gakuen Alice (based on the manga by Tachibana Higuchi) and A Town Where You Live (based on the manga by Kouji Seo)!
Both titles will be available for all members in the US and Canada starting at 4pm PST
About Gakuen Alice
Mikan and Hotaru are best friends! (Well, according to Mikan, anyway. Hotaru doesn't seem to care.) Then one day, Hotaru is escorted away in a fancy black car, apparently scouted by a school in Tokyo called "Alice Academy." Crushed at the loss of her favorite pal, Mikan scurries after her, determined to enroll, too! But Alice Academy is a mysterious place. Can Mikan tough it out in a school where explosions, superpowers, giant baby chicks and axe-wielding teddy bears are the norm? But it's not as if she has a choice, because once students enter Alice Academy, there's no escape!
About A Town Where You Live
All his friends said he was just being "stupid" and "delusional," but Haruto just couldn't give up on her... Yuzuki, the girl that showed up on his doorstep one day, stole his heart the next, and then left just as abruptly as she arrived. With the faint hope of rekindling the romance they'd shared, Haruto decides to pursue her, moving away from the rural outskirts of Hiroshima to the big city of Tokyo.
However, soon after arriving, he learns that Yuzuki has seemingly moved on and has a new boyfriend. No matter how hard Haruto tries, she refuses to see him and won't tell him the reason why she left him. He could move on, as many have urged him to, but is that truly what Yuzuki wants? He could try winning her back - after all, he's already moved to the town where she lives - but how much farther will he need to go?
He is currently serializing his latest writing project, MONDO TOKYO, on Wattpad.
