posted on 2014-05-14 13:00 EDT
The official website for the Chaika - The Coffin Princess television anime confirmed on Thursday that the second season will premiere in October. Original light novel author Ichiro Sasaki indicated that the anime was planned to run two cours (quarters of the year), split into different seasons.
The website also announced that there will be an advance screening for the final episode of the current season on June 20. The joint advance screening/premium event will be held at the Kadokawa Cinema Shinjuku's Cinema 1 theater in Tokyo. In addition to screening the 12th anime episode, the cast of the anime will record a special radio episode.
The fantasy story centers around Toru Acura, a 20-year-old retired soldier meandering through life now that the war has ended. He encounters Chaika Trabant, a 14-year-old sorceress carrying a coffin and follows her in hopes of finding meaning to his life again. The two travel with Toru's adopted sister, Akari, the employed member of the group and thus Toru's source of income.
The first season premiered last month, and Crunchyroll is streaming the anime as it airs in Japan.
