posted on 2012-07-20 08:00 EDT
The niconico (formerly Nico Nico Douga) service streamed a promotional video for the new Seitokai no Ichizon (Student Council's Discretion) anime during a live special program on Friday. Like the first anime, the new anime adapts Sekina Aoi's comedy light novel series about a mostly female student council.
The 86-second video features the opening theme song "Precious" by the cast and highlights the main characters of the new anime. The official website acknowledged on Friday that two of the main cast members have changed. Yuka Saitou, who originally played Chizuru Akaba in the first series, is being replaced by Mina (Heaven's Lost Property's Sohara Mitsuki, Is This a Zombie?'s Kanami Mihara). Yuki Horinaka, who originally played Mafuyu Shiina, will be replaced by Iori Nomizu (Heaven's Lost Property's Nymph, Cat Planet Cuties' Antonia).
The title of the new anime has not been decided yet; the anime's official Twitter account is hosting a contest to name the new anime.
Previously it was revealed that Masahito Onoda has replaced Kumi Horii as the character designer on the new anime. AIC is producing the new anime instead of Studio DEEN, and Kenichi Imaizumi is directing the new anime with series script editor Reiko Yoshida, instead of Takuya Satō and Jukki Hanada for the same roles in the 2009 anime version.
