NHK revealed on Friday that Hiroshi Kamiya will play the character of Alex O'Brien in the upcoming second season of the Baby Steps television anime. Also, Megumi Han will voice the character Marcia O'Brien (pictured below).
The Baby Steps television anime is an adaptation of Hikaru Katsuki's manga of the same name, which revolves around Eiichirō "Ei-chan" Maruo, a punctual and earnest boy who has strived for straight As since elementary school. The 15-year-old high school boy stops by a tennis school to deal with his lack of exercise. There, he meets Natsu Takasaki, a beautiful, earnest girl who only has passion for tennis. The second season's story picks up at a Florida academy where the rival players of the world vie for #1.
The second season will premiere on April 5 and will run for 25 episodes.
The first anime series premiered last April. Pierrot (Naruto, Kingdom) animated the first television series with a total of 25 episodes. Katsuki himself collaborated on the creation of episodes with original stories not told in the manga. Kenji Saito (Dennō Coil, Bakuman, Bottom Biting Bug) produced the anime for NHK.
Crunchyroll is streaming the series outside of Japan.
