The media distribution service Crunchyroll announced on Thursday that it will stream the Student Council's Discretion Level 2 (Seitokai no Ichizon Lv. 2) television anime series. The site will stream the series on Wednesdays starting on January 9 at 1:00 p.m. EST for members in North America, Ireland, Finland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Iceland, and the Netherlands.
The anime studio AIC produced the new series instead of the first anime's Studio DEEN. Kenichi Imaizumi (Katekyo Hitman Reborn!) directed the new anime with series script editor Reiko Yoshida (K-ON!, Bakuman., Kimi to Boku), instead of Takuya Satō and Jukki Hanada for the same roles in the 2009 anime version. Masahito Onoda (animation director for Strike Witches 2, Natsuiro Kiseki) also replaced Kumi Horii as character designer.
Additionally, Yuka Saitou, who originally played Chizuru Akaba in the first series, was replaced by Mina (Heaven's Lost Property's Sohara Mitsuki, Is This a Zombie?'s Kanami Mihara). Yuki Horinaka, who originally played Mafuyu Shiina, was replaced by Iori Nomizu (Heaven's Lost Property's Nymph, Cat Planet Cuties' Antonia).
The series is based on Sekina Aoi's light novel series, which began publication in 2008. H2O ~Footprints in the Sand~ manga artist Kira Inugami draws the illustrations in the novels. The comedy revolves around Ken Sugisaki, a boy who becomes part of the student council of his private high school. He is the only boy on the council, where he is surrounded by cute girls.
Crunchyroll streamed the first Student Council's Discretion anime in 2010.
