News Switch Girl Live-Action Show Gets 2nd Season
posted on 2012-10-25 15:45 EDT
The official Facebook page for the live-action television series adaptation of Natsumi Aida's Switch Girl!! comedy manga announced on Wednesday that the series will be getting a sequel starting on December 7 on the satellite channel Fuji TV Two.
Seventeen magazine model and star in the show Mariya Nishiuchi announced the news in English via video on the Facebook page, noting that the second season will be "even better and more stimulating" than the first season.
The first season premiered last December. The story follows a seemingly ultra-cool and stylish girl named Nika Tamiya, but the fashionable persona is all an act that she "switches" on when she is out. At home, she "switches" off and reveals her true slovenly self that almost no one at her high school knows. One day, a transfer student named Arata Kamiyama moves into her apartment complex and discovers both sides of Nika. Renn Kiriyama (2011 Hana-Kimi's Nanba) plays Arata.
Aida launched the manga in Margaret in 2006, and Shueisha published the 20th compiled book volume on Thursday.
