Crunchyroll media distribution company's website is listing a scheduled simulacast for the Aoi Hana (Sweet Blue Flowers) anime series at 3:00pm EDT Wednesday (July 1st). Despite this listing Crunchyroll has not yet officially announced that it will stream this new television adaptation of Takako Shimura's yuri manga.



In the original Aoi Hana manga's story, Fumi and Akira were close childhood friends until Fumi had to move away. Ten years after losing touch with each other, the two girls meet again as high school freshmen. The two struggle to reconnect after so much has changed, and both deal with the trials and tribulations of high school — sometimes independently and sometimes with each other's help.
