The official website for Hikōnin Sentai Akibaranger (Unofficial Sentai Akibaranger) began streaming a new teaser video for the second season on Wednesday. The teaser reveals footage of shooting from upcoming episodes, as well as short messages from cast members Masato Wada (Nobuo Akagi/Akiba Red), Shione Sawada (Mitsuki Iwashimizu/Akiba Blue), Karin Ogino (Yuko Yamada/Akiba Yellow), Maaya Uchida (Hiroyo Hakase), Kozue Aikawa (Kozkoz Mita), and Honoka (Malsheena). Sawada replaced Kyoko Hinami for the new season.
The cast members vow to do their best for the new season, which will premiere on April 5 on BS Asahi and on April 8 on TOKYO MX TV and Kansai's Sun TV. Toei streamed the first teaser video in January where Masato Wada, as his delivery man character Nobuo Akagi, announced the show's second season in front of a live audience at the "Chōeiyūsai Kamen Rider x Super Sentai Live & Show 2013" stage event.
The first season of the show was known for its production pool of anime veterans, such as director Ryuta Tazaki (Kamen Rider), director/character designer Keiichi Satou (Karas, Tiger & Bunny), writer Naruhisa Arakawa (Kamen Rider Kuuga, Spice and Wolf, Steel Angel Kurumi), and composer Kenji Kawai (Ghost in the Shell, Death Note, Eden of the East).
