posted on 2013-04-04 14:57 EDT
The media distribution service Crunchyroll announced on Thursday that it will stream Hyakka Ryōran Samurai Bride, the second season of Hyakka Ryōran Samurai Girls. Crunchyroll will stream the series on Fridays starting on April 5 at 10:00 p.m. EDT for members in North America.
The staff for the second series remains the same, except Satoru Nishizono (B Gata H Kei - Yamada's First Time, Needless, Welcome to the NHK) is handling the series composition in place of Ryunosuke Kingetsu. Studio ARMS is again producing the series. Some voice actresses are joining the cast:
Chinatsu Akasaki as Sasuke Sarutobi
Yōko Hikasa as Musashi Miyamoto
Naomi Shindoh as Kojirō Sasaki
Haruka Tomatsu as Motaemon Araki
Satomi Satou as Inshun Hōzōin
Mamiko Noto as Keiji Maeda
The first season's story is set in the early 21st century — except in this alternate world, the Tokugawa shogunate never lost power and Japan maintained its enforced seclusion from the rest of the world. At a giant academy for children of military families at the foot of Mt. Fuji, the student council enforces the suppression of rebellious elements. (Many of the students carry the names of famous historical figures.)
Update: More background information added.
