The Anime Network to stream 25-episode sequel series; home video release to follow later this year

Sentai Filmworks announced on Wednesday that it has licensed the second season of the Phi Brain: Puzzle of God (Phi Brain: Kami no Puzzle) television anime series. The Anime Network and "other digital outlets" will stream the 25-episode sequel series online. Sentai Filmworks will then release the series on home video later this year.

The anime's first season follows Kaito, a puzzle-loving freshman at the private high school named "Root Academy." He is selected as a candidate for "Phi Brain" for his extraordinary mental skills. One day, he and his childhood friend Nonoha tackle the "unsolvable puzzle" hidden in the underground ruins near the school. They are guided by the mobile device given to Kaito by the student council president.

In the second season, the story continues to revolve around the Orpheus bangle and Phi Brain, but the puzzle battles heat up. A new enemy, a group of boys named Orpheus Order, appears before Kaito and the others, and the battles begin anew.

The new season will premiere in Japan on April 8. Sentai Filmworks licensed the first season, and the Anime Network is streaming the first television season online. The first season's final episode, which was delayed by one week, will air on April 1.
