Earlier we learned that NIS America had acquired the second season of Love Live! which many anime fans were expecting, but today the company has announced a license acquisition that has probably caught many of their fans off guard, just like when they licensed the first season of Love Live!.
Today NIS America has announced that they have acquired Kanojo ga Flag o Oraretara and will be releasing it under the name If Her Flag Breaks sometime in the future, but for now the series is being streamed on Crunchyroll on Wednesdays.
I say this is a surprising pick up by NIS America because this isn’t a series they usually go for, however it is certainly a pleasant surprise and it will be interesting to see where things will go from here. Anyways, for those unfamiliar with the series from its light novel origin or manga adaptation, the series follows Sota Hatate who has the ability to see flags above people’s heads.
These flags mark critical moments in time where people can become friends, fall in love, win an event, or even die and since he can see these flags, he has the power to change their outcome. However even with his abilities he soon finds himself surrounded by numerous smitten girls but things are more desperate than they first appear.
