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.
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.
