It was pretty surprising last year when Nozomi Entertainment revealed that their license for Maria Watches Over Us was ending after bringing it out since 2012. Things moved quickly not long after that at Anime Expo 2018 it was revealed by Maiden Japan that they’d be bringing out the show. It’s been quiet since then, however, but now HIDIVE has revealed an August 19th, 2019 debut for the streaming of the second series with Maria Watches Over Us ~ Printemps. This season of thirteen episodes is being released at once in subtitled form on that day. Availability for it is more expansive than what Nozomi had with it open to viewers in:
– The United States & Canada (US, GU, PR, AS, MP, VI, CA, PW, FM, MH)
– Central, Latin and South America (AG, AN, AR, AW, BB, BL, BO, BQ, BR, BS, BZ, CL, CO, CR, CU, CW, DM, DO, EC, GD, GF, GP, GT, GY, HN, HT, JM, KN, LC, MQ, MX, NI, PA, PE, PM, PY, SR, SV, SXM, TT, UY, VC, VE)

Plot Concept: As spring arrives at Lillian Girls’ Academy, students gather to begin the new school term.
