posted on by Karen Ressler
The official website for the anime adaptation of Sorata Akiduki's Snow White with the Red Hair (Akagami no Shirayuki-hime) manga announced on Tuesday that the anime's second season will premiere in January. The staff had previously announced plans for the anime to run in two split seasons.
The first season premiered in July and Funimation is streaming the series as it airs.
Akiduki's original manga and the anime revolve around Shirayuki (Saori Hayami), a beautiful girl working as a medicine woman who has red hair, which is very rare in her country. When she is proposed and chased after by Raji (Jun Fukuyama), the prince of her country, she runs away, only to meet Zen (Ryota Ohsaka), the prince of a neighboring country. Finding respect for the young man, she decides to serve at his side as his court doctor.
Masahiro Ando (Hanasaku Iroha - Blossoms for Tomorrow, Blast of Tempest) is directing the anime at the studio BONES.
Akiduki began the manga in LaLa in its September 2006 issue, and Hakusensha shipped the 14th compiled volume of the series on July 3. The limited edition of the manga's 15th volume will bundle a 30-minute anime on DVD.
