 Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu: Purezza
 Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu: Purezza
Not sure how many of you will be particularly thrilled by these, but the latest two additions to Crunchyroll's simulcast lineup are the sequel to Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu and Miracle Train-- so at least it's a balance of moe for guys and bishies for girls, I guess?

 Miracle Train
 Miracle Train
Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu, of course, is the tale of the most popular girl at school-- who turns out to be a closet otaku. Our hero finds out her secret and, as a result, becomes her friend, to the envy of all his pals at school. Meanwhile, Miracle Train is a bishounen personification of the Uedo line of trains in Japan. Five hotties run the gamut from the sweet, girly boy to the sensitive-but-macho "guy's guy" to the bespectacled managerial sort who runs everything. Sort of like a less maniacal Hetalia, and with trains instead of countries, and a lot fewer characters. And probably less boycotting from Korea.

The next two announcements will be made on Monday, October 5th, so stick around!

Quite excited about Haruka season 2 actually... First one was surprisingly plesant and fresh despite being totally unoriginal.

Huh, I don't really like Hetalia, so I'm guessing a "Hetalia" based on train lines isn't going to do much for me. (yes, I'm the only BL fan on the planet who thinks Hetalia is lame). The other show could be cute.  I'm going to give all the CR simulcasts a shot though.  You never know when something will surprise you.

What there a second season for Haruka no Himitsu, I need to check the Fall preview chart more carefully.

Hey! Don't underestimate  Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu . I did'nt give it much of a chance and by the time is was over, it wound up being my "Anime of the Year". It is so much fun to watch! You get your moe hit but it doesn't beat you over the head with it and I became a fan  of Mamiko Noto after watching this. It is worth checking out.
