With Funimation bringing out Anime Classics editions of Haganai last December, they’re now bringing more of the show out to audiences for streaming through Hulu. They’ve now added the first two dubbed episodes of Haganai and the second season Haganai Next to Hulu, which complements the subtitled side. That side previously had and still has the full first season subtitled while the second season has episodes three through twelve subtitled.
The cast for the show includes Jerry Jewell as Kodaka Hasegawa, Whitney Rodgers as Yozora Mikazuki, Jād Saxton as Sena Kashiwazaki, Alexis Tipton as Rika Shiguma, Ashleigh Domangue as Yukimura Kusunoki, Kristi Kang as Maria Takayama and Alison Viktorin as Kobato Hasegawa.
Plot concept: Yozora’s an abrasive loudmouth whose only friend at school is imaginary. She knows she’s difficult – which makes her better off than Kodoka, a new transfer student who picked up an undeserved bad reputation the second he stepped on campus. Inspired by their shared status as social catastrophes, the two loners unite and start the Neighbors Club, an organization dedicated to finding other misfits and making friends.
In no time, a third member joins their ranks: Sena, a pretty, popular rich girl who annoys Yozora to no end. With Kodoka in the middle of the chaos, the brash brunette and the blonde boy-magnet go ’round and ’round, even as the Neighbors Club begins to grow. Hopefully, the girls can get past their rivalry, because sometimes the friendship you’re looking for is right in front of you, and sometimes the best friends are the friends you never even wanted.
