Discotek Media previously made another pickup that pleased a lot of fans as the two seasons for Haruka Nogizaka’s Secret were acquired and released back in 2018. What’s been surprising is how long it’s taking to start distributing these through streaming services to raise a bit more awareness for them since a sizeable number of fans never even look at home video releases. Both seasons are now thankfully available for free streaming through RetroCrush and they’re doing some clips to get into our brain pain even more. This clip is from the first season and clocks in at ten minutes of the ways in which they are so lovey-dovey together.
The series originally aired in 2008 but was one of many lost to the financial market chaos of the time and the market contraction on the anime distributor side.
Plot concept: Yūto Ayase attends Hakujō Academy, a private high school in Japan. His classmate, Haruka Nogizaka, is not only very attractive but is intelligent and rich, garnering her the title as the school’s idol. However, one day when Yūto’s friend asks him to return a book to the library, he unexpectedly stumbles across Haruka and her deepest, darkest secret—she is an otaku!! Promising to keep her secret hidden, Yūto and Haruka become close friends, helping Haruka with her secret hobby and developing their relationship together.
