Crunchyroll Adds English Dubs for Science Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove it and Somali and the Forest Spirit

Streaming service Crunchyroll has begun to add English audio for two of their most recent streaming titles on their platform. Both shows are currently simulcasting as part of the Winter 2020 anime season.

The first is Science Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove it (Rikei ga Koi ni Ochita no de Shoumei shitemita.), animated by Zero-G and based on a manga series written by Alfred Yamamoto. The English dub will be available very soon. The Japanese audio simulcast streams every Friday at 4:30pm GMT.

Plot Synopsis (via Crunchyroll):

“What happens when a science-inclined girl and boy who are deeply passionate about research fall in love? An intelligent woman named Himuro Ayame who is a science graduate student at Saitama University happens to ask fellow science grad student Yukimura Shinya out. Of course, there’s no logical reason for this love! But as a science and engineering major, not being able to logically prove love would mean that those feelings aren’t real, and they’d fail as a science student. With that in mind, the two drag everyone else in the lab into trying various experiments to prove love actually exists.”

The second is Somali and the Forest Spirit (Somali to Mori no Kamisama), animated by Satelight and based on a manga series written by Yako Gureishi. The first episode of the English dub is available with new dubbed episodes available every Thursday at around 8:00pm GMT. The Japanese audio simulcast streams every Thursday at 5:00pm GMT.

Plot Synopsis (via Crunchyroll):

“The world is ruled by a diversity of inhuman beings, who persecuted humans and drove them to near-extinction. One day, the forest guardian Golem meets a human girl. This is a chronicle of a journey that would bind a member of the dying “human” clan to the forest guardian Golem, as father and daughter.”

Crunchyroll has provided dub add-ons for recent titles throughout 2019. Those titles were the following:

Crunchyroll have also recently added the English dubs for The Ancient Magus’ Bride, and both seasons of NEW GAME! on their streaming platform.

In 2019, Crunchyroll announced plans to partner with Viz Media for home video in the United States and Canada as well as with Viz Media Europe, but no news has been mentioned since. While it was announced in July 2019, there still have been no further updates on when Konosuba Season 2’s English dub will launch.
