The BS Fuji channel announced on Thursday that a second season of its live-action television series adaptation of Mitsutoshi Furuya's Bar Lemon Heart manga will premiere on April 4.
Baijaku Nakamura, Kazuhisa Kawahara and Satoru Matsuo are all reprising their roles as the bartender, Megane-san, and Matsu-chan (Matsuda), respectively. Guest actors who will appear in the new season include Teruhiko Saigō, Kenji Matsuda, Yoichi Nukumizu, Maiko, Yosuke Asari, Izou Oikawa, Azusa Inamura, Takako Hayashi, and Megumi Mori.
Furuya's Bar Lemon Heart manga centers on the titular bar, its bartender, and the two regular customers who drop by the bar. Every story focuses on a different character who will come to the bar to share his or her problems while drinking. Each story is a stand-alone story.
Futabasha published the first volume of the manga in 1986, and Furuya has continued to write the manga since then. The 30th volume shipped last September. The first season of the live-action television series adaptation aired from October to November with six episodes.
