Crunchyroll's Spring licensing announcements continue, and so far it's all good news for UK folks as all titles are available here. Here are the latest titles to be added to the list:

The second season of gag anime Tono to Issho, which can be thought of as feudal-era Hetalia if you're so inclined - a series of 5-minute episodes leaning heavily on visual gags and puns. The first season is already on Crunchyroll if you want a taster; new episodes will stream Mondays at 19:00UK.

Deadman Wonderland channels at least a little bit of Running Man, by the sounds of it, and could be one of the more intriguing offerings of the season. Set after Tokyo has been devastated by an earthquake (hmmm...), it follows Ganta Igarashi, a middle school student who was framed for the murder of his classmates and has been sentenced to Deadman Wonderland, a bizarre privatized prison that is one part incarceration and one part public spectacle for tourists. Simulcast dates and times are to be confirmed.

Next up is a familiar name: The World God Only Knows, the second season of the adventures of Keima and Elsie as they attempt to capture lost souls. Great fun in the first season, hopefully this one is just as good. New episodes stream Mondays at 17:00UK.

Finally for this update, there's what seems to be a little BL in the form of Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi. Ritsu Onodera has just taken a job as an editor at his parents' publishing company, Marukawa Books, but there are two bad aspects to this: one, he's been assigned to the shoujo manga department in spite of having no interest in it; and two, his editor in chief, Masamune Takano, proves to be a problem. Dates and times for this one are TBA.

Still maintaining a perfect record of having UK access to their shows this season - I'm impressed. Two more announcements due later this evening, I'll update here if I get the chance, or keep an eye on the Twitter feed.
