Online video site Viki announced exclusively to ANN on Thursday that the site signed a deal with TV Asahi to stream the Innocent Lilies 2 fantasy drama. The second season of the "hyper action battle series" will premiere worldwide on Viki on June 13.
The Dempagumi, Inc. idol group — Risa Aizawa, Mirin Furukawa, Eimi Naruse, Nemu Yumemi, Moga Mogami, and Ayane Fujisaki — are returning for the second season with director Koichi Sakamoto and screenwriter Reiko Yoshida. Viki describes the story:
White Witch Academy— It is a secret place that welcomes girls with scars and broken hearts. A girl Moda who is suffering from the deep scars in her heart from the training (Etude) became a White Witch and began her journey to save the "world". Another White Witch, Risa appeared in front of her. Furthermore, a group of Black Witches who think of the White Witches as enemies appeared in front of them. They are trying to create a new world with their witch power. In order to rescue Risa who is captured by the Black Witches, Moga goes into the Black Witch Academy. There, Moga encounters the familiar girls who she spent time with at the White Witch Academy.
Viki streamed the first 10-episode series in 2013. Production on the second series started last year but wasn't announced until members of the cast and crew were sent to the hospital after experiencing symptoms similar to carbon monoxide poisoning at the set.
