2nd season based on Sorata Akiduki's manga premieres on January 11

The official website for the anime of Sorata Akiduki's Snow White with the Red Hair (Akagami no Shirayuki-hime) manga began streaming the first promotional video for the anime's second season on Friday. The video previews Saori Hayami's opening theme song "Sono Koe ga Chizu ni Naru" (Your Voice Will Become a Map). Hayami performed the opening theme song "Yasashii Kibō" (Gentle Hope) for the first half of the series. The song marked her debut as a solo artist.

The anime will premiere on January 11. The second season will start off with Shirayuki being invited to the Tanbarun Kingdom. New cast members in the second season include:

Sachi Kokuryu as Kazuki, a mysterious man searching for Shirayuki

Shintarō Asanuma as Itoya, a silent man who travels with Kazuki

Mikako Komatsu as Eugena, the second prince of the Tanbarun Kingdom

Inori Minase as Rona, the princess of the Tanbarun Kingdom

Masahiro Ando (Hanasaku Iroha - Blossoms for Tomorrow, Blast of Tempest) is directing the anime at the studio BONES. The group eyelis is also returning to provide the ending theme song "Page~Kimi to Tsuzuru Monogatari" (Page~A Story I Weave with You). The group performed the first season's ending theme song "Kizuna ni Nosete" (Placing on Bonds).

The first season premiered in July and Funimation streamed the series as it aired.

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 to 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.

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 on January 5.
