Love Knows No Boundaries in the Summer 2016 Anime Momokuri

HOUSTON, July 21, 2016 - 'Tis the season for summer romance... and look no further than the slice-of-life dramedy Momokuri, premiering August 1st on Anime Network Online (ANO)!

In this anime based on the webmanga by fan-favorite Kurose, Yuki Kurihara took a chance one day and confessed her feelings to the boy she liked… and he said “yes”! The boy in question, Shinya Momotsuki, is a freshman when it comes to love, but soon they’re walking home from school, studying, and eating together. There’s just one problem with this otherwise cute couple: Kurihara is so obsessed with her Momo-kun that she’s sneaking photos of him on her phone, freaking out when they touch, and blushing at every adorable thing he does. Can Kurihara’s little heart handle her nearly manic love for her new boyfriend?

Momokuri begins airing on August 1st. ANO subscribers in the USA, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Scandinavia, Netherlands, Latin America, Turkey, and the Middle East will be able to stream new episodes every Monday at 9:30 AM EDT.
