'My Hero Academia' Season 2

According to Anime News Network, FUNimation has partnered with Crunchyroll to stream the highly sought after the second season of "My Hero Academia" with English subtitles. The second season would cover the U.A. Sports Festival Arc which is told by the manga. The two companies have decided that Crunchyroll would begin streaming the anime on April 1.

Furthermore, Crunchyroll wants to get a bigger audience for the second season and to refresh the viewer's memory. So, they have decided to stream the entire first season of "My Hero Academia with English subtitles before April 1. This first season streaming would be available in the US, Canada, UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Iceland, Denmark, Sweden, and Norway.

To continue on the success of the anime, Kenji Nagasaki directed the second season along with Yousuke Kuroda as the script writer, Yoshihiko Umakoshi as character designer and chief animation director and Yuuki Hayashi as the main composer for the anime. The opening theme song Peace Sign is performed by Kenshi Yonezu while the ending theme song is performed by Little Glee Monster.

Other than that, all the characters from the first season of My Hero Academia are set to return for the second season and would include new members. New cast members include Tetsu Inada as Enji Todoroki aka Endeavor, Wataru Hatano as Hitoshi Shinso, Azu Sakura as Mei Hatsume, Saki Ogasawara as Itsuka Kendo, Koji Okino as Tetsutetsu Tetsutetsu, Kohei Amasaki as Neito Monoma and Miho Masaka as Ibara Shiozaki.

'Mobile Suit Gundam Wing'

While all the latest anime are trending, a nostalgic piece of the past is set to return as Crunchyroll has updated their anime roster. The critically acclaimed fan favorite "Mobile Suit Gundam Wing" which was released last 1995-1996 is now going to be available for streaming starting March 23. "The Mobile Suit Gundam Wing" version that Crunchyroll would be streaming comes with its own subtitles.

The story of "Mobile Suit Gundam Wing" is a simple and yet at some point complex story. It revolves around the five Gundams piloted by five teenagers which are sent by a group of rebels to Earth, to fight for the independence of the space colonies.

"Mobile Suit Gundam Wing" is sure going to bring back a lot of memories to those that have watched it before. And although this anime can be streamed worldwide, it would not be available in Asia and in Italian speaking countries.
