The website also confirmed that the series will premiere in April. The staff for the second series remains the same, except Satoru Nishizono (B Gata H Kei - Yamada's First Time, Needless, Welcome to the NHK) is handling the series composition in place of Ryunosuke Kingetsu. Studio ARMS is again producing the series.
The series, based on Akira Suzuki's novels, is set in the early 21st century — except in this alternate world, the Tokugawa shogunate never lost power and Japan maintained its enforced seclusion from the rest of the world. At a giant academy for children of military families at the foot of Mt. Fuji, the student council enforces the suppression of rebellious elements. (Many of the students carry the names of famous historical figures.)
The first season is being rebroadcast in Japan on the AT-X, Chiba TV, TV Saitama, and tvk channels starting in January.
