posted on by Jon Hayward
The announcement was made on Madman's facebook page and Oreimo season 2 will be released on DVD in 2014;
Kyosuke Kosaka is a high schooler who has been leading a quiet, humdrum life. However, things are turned upside-down when his little sister, Kirino, comes to him for "life counselling”.
It turns out that Kirino, a well-rounded winner in life, has many otaku-ish hobbies And so, Kyosuke sincerely takes on Kirino's request, and as more and more people in their friend circles become involved, changes to their icy cold brother-sister relationship begin to appear. But after they overcome the crisis of Kirino suddenly leaving to study abroad, what kind of crazy whims will Kirino put forward next?
For the second anime season, character designer Hiroyuki Oda is once again adapting Hiro Kanzaki's original novel illustrations, and series script editor Hideyuki Kurata is similarly adapting Tsukasa Fushimi's original light novel series. Hiroyuki Kanbe is returning to the proverbial director's chair — only this time at A-1 Pictures instead of AIC Build.
The sequel anime adapts the plot of the original light novel series all the way through the final novel volume. The first season (including the series' alternate ending, "TRUE ROUTE") included the story up to the fifth light novel volume, and season two will continue through to the expected 12th volume.
Oreimo 2 adapts the plot of the original light novel series all the way through the final novel volume. Aniplex of America is planning to release the second season for North America, and Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired in Japan from April 2013.
