The official website for the Haitai Nanafa television anime series announced on Thursday that a second season has been green-lit. The second season will premiere in April. More details will be provided on the website.

The story of Haitai Nanafa revolves around an energetic middle school girl named Nanafa Kyan. Nanafa lives in Okinawa with her grandmother who runs the "Kame Soba" soba shop, her beautiful older sister Nao who is in high school, and her younger sister Kokona, who is in elementary school and has a strong ability to sense the supernatural.

One day, Nanafa witnesses a seal fall off of a Chinese banyan tree, and three spirits who live in that tree are unleashed. These spirits include Niina (Rei Matsuzaki) and Raana, who are "jimunaa" spirits. The third spirit is Iina (Hiromi Igarashi), who is an incarnation of an Okinawan lion statue. As spirits start appearing one after another, the peaceful life of Nanafa and her family begins to change.

The first season with original character designs by illustrator POP premiered on the local Ryukyu Asahi Broadcasting station in October.
