Natsume Takashi with his “death” grandmother, Reiko
The official Japanese website of the Zoku Natsume Yūjin-Chō anime series has began streaming a 30-second promotional movie on Tuesday. This series continues the story after the first 13-episode anime adaptation of Yuki Midorikawa‘s Natsume Yūjin-Chō ghost-story manga. The first episode of Zoku Natsume Yūjin-Chō just premiered in Japan on January 5. The promotional movie features the “Ano hi Time Machine” opening theme song by LONG SHOT PARTY.
The Crunchyroll video-sharing website announced that its English-subtitled streaming of the first Zoku Natsume Yūjin-Chō episode will be delayed until next Monday. However, on that day, the website will host all 13 episodes of the first Natsume Yūjin-Chō anime series, the first episode of the Zoku follow-up, and the second Zoku episode one hour after it airs in Japan. Every episode after that will also be posted online one hour after it airs.
