The show is scheduled to simulcast on Wednesday 2nd October at 6:00pm BST (5:00pm GMT).

About ORESUKI:

Question: What would you do if a girl you liked asked you out on a date? Now imagine it’s not one, but two beautiful girls, the cool beauty, Cosmos, and the cute childhood friend, Himawari!! Of course, you would make plans with both, right, and feel like a total stud. Except for the “feelings” they confess to you are…

Asking me for “romantic advice,” since they’re both in love with someone else. Hahaha…

That’s it! I’m not gonna take it anymore! I’m giving up on this obtuse, harmless persona and going back to my true self. But I can’t give up hope here. If I give them my advice, at least one of them may fall in love with me! But a girl on the sidelines witnessed my sad, solitary battle. She’s Sumireko Sanshokuin (Pansy), a gloomy, glasses-wearing girl with braids. I hate her, to be honest. And yet… she’s the only one who loves me?!

And so it begins the slightly stimulating teen coming-of-age romantic(?) comedy about a protagonist who doesn’t realize he’s a background character and the quirky, magnificent girls orbiting him!

Also mentioned is the second cour for Ensemble Stars, which will be streaming for the United States and Canada regions only.
