The official website of the Terraformars Revenge TV anime sequel series began streaming the second promotional video for the anime on Thursday. The video previews the anime's theme song "Kōryōtaru Shinsekai" by Japanese heavy metal band Seikima II. Seikima II is also performing a second theme song for the show titled "PLANET / THE HELL."
The video also reveals that the anime will premiere on April 1 on Tokyo MX, and it will also air on ABC Asahi Broadcasting, TV Aichi, BS11, and TV Asa Channel 1. The show's official website has also revealed the show's various ending theme songs on Thursday. Zwei will perform the ending theme song "Red Zone," Fuki will perform the ending theme song "Strength," and nao will perform the ending theme song "Revolution." A mini album featuring all three songs plus the TV size of the two opening theme songs will ship on May 25.
The show's staff will differ from the first season. Michio Fukuda (Hyakko, Nura: Rise of the Yokai Clan: Demon Capital) is taking over for Hiroshi Hamasaki as director at the studios LIDEN FILMS and TYO Animations. Cagetzu Aizawa (Rage of Bahamut Genesis sub-character designer) and Atsushi Ikariya (Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works, Fate/Zero, Harmonie) are designing the characters, and Naruhisa Arakawa (MAOYU, Kingdom) is taking over for Shogo Yasukawa to handle the series composition.
Seikima II's CD single for "Kōryōtaru Shinsekai" will be the band's first in 17 years, and will ship on April 13. Terra Formars manga writer Yū Sasuga is a fan of Seikima II, and has used Seikima II song titles as chapter titles.
The first 13-episode television anime series adapting the Annex 1 arc of the manga premiered in September 2014, and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired. The companion original video anime (OVA) project adapted the Bugs 2 arc on discs bundled with the 10th and 11th manga volumes. The Annex 1 arc takes place 20 years after the Bugs 2 arc.
The manga is also inspiring a live-action film directed by Takashi Miike that will open in Japan on April 29. The film is in turn also inspiring a live-action television prequel, which will air on April 24.
