Himōto! Umaru-chan R anime premieres in October

The official website for the television anime adaptation of Sankaku Head's Himōto! Umaru-chan manga began streaming a character video for the show's second season on Thursday for the character Umaru. The site also revealed that the anime's second season is titled Himōto! Umaru-chan R. The anime will air in Japan on Tokyo MX, ABC Asahi Broadcasting, BS11, and AT-X starting in October.

The main staff is returning from the first season, including the anime studio Doga Kobo, director Masahiko Ohta, series script supervisor Takashi Aoshima, and character designer Aya Takano. The following main cast members are also returning:

  • Aimi Tanaka as Umaru Doma
  • Kenji Nojima as Taihei Doma
  • Akari Kageyama as Nana Ebina
  • Haruka Shiraishi as Kirie Motoba
  • Yurina Furukawa as Sylphynford Tachibana

The first television anime series premiered in July 2015, and Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired. Sentai Filmworks released the anime in North America with an English dub on May 30.

The manga and anime's story centers around Taihei Doma and his little sister Umaru, who boasts beautiful looks as well as prowess in both school and sports. However, she has a certain secret. Everyone may think she is the ideal girl, but she is anything but. "Himōto" is a pun on "imōto" (little sister) and "himono," which means "dried fish," but in slang can refer to a woman who is proper in public but lazy at home.

Sankaku Head launched the manga in Weekly Young Jump in 2013 (after running an earlier two-chapter Himōto! Umaru-chan! version in Miracle Jump in 2012). The manga has 2.7 million copies in print as of March.
