posted on by Egan Loo
Thomas Romain, a "future visual" artist for the Senki Zesshō Symphogear anime series, reported on Twitter on Saturday that "the big news was that we just started to work on a new season of Symphogear that will air next year!"
Senki Zesshō Symphogear's first season aired for 13 episodes from January to March of this year. The "Symphogear Live 2012" event ran at the Zepp Diver City complex on Tokyo's Odaiba island on Saturday and announced the news of a new season.
Update: The anime's official website revealed that Katsumi Ono, an episode director on the first season and the director of Hataraki Man and Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's, is replacing Tatsufumi Itō as the director of the new season. Chief animation director Satoru Fujimoto is also assuming the character design role from Satoshi Koike. Akifumi Kaneko is returning to write and oversee scripts, and original character designer Dan Yoshii is also reprising his role at Satelight. Romain added that "there will be new (singing/ main) character(s) too."
