The anime department of the retailer HMV reported on Sunday that production on a second season of the Dog Days fantasy anime was announced earlier in the day at the Dog Days Special Promotion -Flonya Festival 2011- event in Tokyo.
The studio Seven Arcs (Asura Cryin', Sekirei, Magical Girl Lyrical Nanoha) animated the first season that premiered this past April. In the story, Princess Millhiore (Yui Horie) of the Biscotti Republic decides to summon a brave warrior from an alternate world to defend her country from the neighboring fiefdom of Galette. The "brave warrior" turns out to be a boy named Cinque (Mamoru Miyano) from modern-day Japan.
