Crunchyroll to Stream "Say 'I Love You'" Anime

Begins Saturday, Oct 27 at 10am Pacific Time

Just when you thought the announcements for Crunchyroll’s fall season of anime had piped down, along comes a new title to crow about: Say "I Love You" (Japanese title: Suki-tte Ii na yo), based on the manga by Hazuki Kanae. This new series is set to debut on Crunchyroll on Saturday October 27 at 10 a.m. Pacific Time for premium members. Free members will be able to view one (1) week after initial Crunchyroll broadcast.


Say "I Love You" is animated by studio ZEXCS (Kamichu, Legend of the Legendary Heroes) and is being directed by Takuya Sato (Steins;Gate). The male lead character, “Kurosawa Yamato”, is being voiced by Takahiro Sakurai, best known as “Cloud Strife” from the Final Fantasy game series. The female lead, “Tachibana Mei” is voiced by Ai Kayano (Medaka Box, Anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day).





For 16 years, Tachibana Mei has had no boyfriend and couldn't even make friends. One day she accidentally injures Kurosawa Yamato, the most popular boy in school, but for some reason Yamato takes interest in her and one-sidedly declares her his friend. He even kisses Mei to protect her from a stalker! This story based on the hit manga by rising star Hazuki Kanae paints a realistic story of first love...


Say "I Love You" will be available to audiences in the following territories: USA, Canada, UK, Ireland, South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Netherlands, Scandinavia, and Latin America.
