posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
North American anime licensing company Sentai Filmworks announced on Friday that it has licensed Medaka Box Abnormal, the second anime season based on NisiOisin and Akira Akatsuki's Medaka Box manga. Sentai Filmworks will make the series available digitally soon, with a home video release to follow in 2013.
The story follows Medaka (voiced by Aki Toyosaki), the strongest girl in Hakoniwa Academy and head of the school's student council. The student body can submit pleas for help into the suggestion box that Medaka installed. Together with council members Zenkichi (Yūki Ono), Akune (Daisuke Namikawa), and Kikaijima (Ai Kayano), she takes on the challenges in the school that include supernatural powers and near-constant battles.
The second anime season will premiere in Japan on October 10. The first 12-episode anime season aired from April to June, and Crunchyroll streamed the season into several countries as it aired. Sentai Filmworks will also release the first season on home video in North America.
