Buckle up, anime fans! This spring, things are getting a bit eccentric at Crunchyroll.

Crunchyroll describes The Eccentric Family 2 as:
Shimogamo Yasaburo has the blood of a mystical racoon-like creäture – a tanuki – but has the ability to transform into a human. He lives a playful life in Kyoto, where humans, tanuki, and tengu live side-by-side. Yasaburo and his family finally come to terms with their father’s death, reconciling with human and tengu alike. However, the son of Yasaburo’s teacher returns to the city after a century abroad, stirring up a world of trouble for everyone in Kyoto’s mystical underbelly.
NIS America currently distributes the first season of The Eccentric Family in North America.
