posted on by Egan Loo
Sekirei TV sequel to premiere in July; Working!! to premiere on April 4

The official website of the Sekirei television anime adaptation has begun streaming a 189-second trailer for the new anime sequel, Sekirei: Pure Engagement, on Thursday. The trailer had debuted at Tokyo International Anime Fair (TAF) this past week. The second season was officially announced last August on the same website and at Square Enix's Young Gangan Fes. Anime no Okage Summer 2009 event.

Director Keizou Kusakawa, writer Takao Yoshioka, character designer Shinpei Tomooka, musical composer Hiroaki Sano, and the Seven Arcs anime studio are all returning from the first anime adaptation of Sakurako Gokurakuin's manga. Shinnosuke Tachibana (Minato), Saori Hayami (Musubi), Marina Inoue (Tsukiumi), and Kana Hanazawa (Kusano) lead the main cast in reprising their respective roles.

The official website for the television anime adaptation of Karino Takatsu's Working!! four-panel manga has also posted a 131-second promotional video that had debuted at TAF 2010. The previous promotional videos, character trailers, and commercials are still available from the same page. In the story, a high school freshman named Sōta Takanashi (Jun Fukuyama) works part-time among the restaurant's high-spirited, eccentric, yet cool staffers. The Working!! television anime will officially premiere on April 4.
