Hideyasu Takahashi's phantom thief story premiered in October

The February 2015 issue of Shogakukan's Bessatsu CoroCoro Comic magazine is announcing on Tuesday that a second Mysterious Joker television anime season has been green-lit for April.

In Hideyasu Takahashi's Kaitō Joker (Mysterious Joker) manga that inspired the anime, there is nothing in the world that the mysterious phantom thief Joker cannot steal. He goes after one treasure after another in unpredictable capers with seemingly miraculous tricks.

Ayumu Murase (Haikyu!!, Majestic Prince) plays the titular Joker. The anime staff includes:

Original creator: Hideyasu Takahashi
Director: Yukiyo Teramoto
Series organizer:Dai Sato
Main Character Designer: Miho Shimogasa
Music: Yūsaku Tsuchiya
Animation Studio: Shin-Ei Animation
Production :ADK
Additional Production:ADK/Shin-Ei Animation/Shogakukan Productions Co./TOKYO MX/Sho-Pro/Vega Entertainment/Kid's Station

The television anime premiered in October, and Crunchyroll is streaming the anime (under the title Joker) into several countries as it airs in Japan.

Takahashi began the manga in Shogakukan's Bessatsu CoroCoro Comic magazine in 2007, although it then moved to the main Monthly CoroCoro Comic magazine. The manga won the children's category of the 58th Shogakukan Manga Awards last year.
