April 2 premiere, new key visual also revealed

The official website for the television anime series The Asterisk War began streaming the second season's promotional video on Wednesday. The video previews Shiena Nishizawa's opening theme song "The Asterisk War." (Note: the video on the official website is region-locked to Japan.)


The official website for the anime also revealed the show's premiere date and a new visual (pictured below). The anime will premiere on Animax on April 2 at 10:30 p.m., and will also air on Tokyo MX, Tochigi TV, Gunma TV, BS11, ABC Asahi Broadcasting, and CBC TV.

Haruka Chisuga will perform the ending theme song "Ai no Uta -words of love-."

Aniplex of America licensed the anime's first season, which aired in October-December. The series streamed on Daisuki, Crunchyroll, and Funimation.

The anime adapts Yuu Miyazaki and okiura's The Asterisk War: The Academy City on the Water (Gakusen Toshi Asterisk) light novel series. Miyazaki launched the novel series in 2012, and Media Factory published the ninth volume in September. The light novels have inspired a manga by Ningen, as well as the Gakusen Toshi Asterisk Gaiden: Queenveil no Tsubasa spinoff manga by Shō Akane.

The anime also inspired a PlayStation Vita game that shipped on January 28.

Thanks to Kagayaki and Dennis R. for the embedded videos.
