North American anime licensing company Sentai Filmworks announced on Tuesday that it has licensed Hyakka Ryōran Samurai Bride, the second season of Hyakka Ryōran Samurai Girls. Sentai Filmworks noted it will release the series digitally with a home video release to follow later this year. Crunchyroll is currently streaming the series outside of Japan as it airs.
The staff for the second series remains the same, except Satoru Nishizono (B Gata H Kei - Yamada’s First Time, Needless, Welcome to the NHK) is handling the series composition in place of Ryunosuke Kingetsu. Studio ARMS is again producing the series. Some voice actresses are joining the cast:
The first season's story is set in the early 21st century — except in this alternate world, the Tokugawa shogunate never lost power and Japan maintained its enforced seclusion from the rest of the world. At a giant academy for children of military families at the foot of Mt. Fuji, the student council enforces the suppression of rebellious elements. (Many of the students carry the names of famous historical figures.)
