posted on by Egan Loo
The official website for the Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE! television anime announced that Keisuke Koumoto and Yoshiki Murakami will join the cast in the second season, titled Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE! LOVE! (Binan Kōkō Chikyū Bōei-bu Love! Love!) They play Akihiko Beppu (pictured left) and Haruhiko Beppu (right), respectively.
The website also lists the staff for the second season. Studio Comet is animating the season instead of Diomedea. Chizuru Miyawaki is still credited for design concept, but not as associate director. Yumiko Hara, the sub character designer and prop designer on the first season, replaces Masakazu Ishikawa as the main character designer. Tomoko Miyakawa is the new sub character designer and prop designer. Miyakawa is also the new chief animation director along with Atsuko Takahashi. Hiroaki Tanaka replaces Yasuyuki Itou as director of photography.
The website notes that the second Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE! novel will ship on May 3. Voice actors Kazutomi Yamamoto (Yumoto Hakone) and Yusuke Shirai (Io Naruko) will appear at the anime's AnimeJapan 2016 stage event on March 27.
Funimation describes the story:
Teenage boys are notoriously lazy, and the members of Binan High School's Earth Defense Club are no exception. Their definition of “earth defense” is bumming around all day at the local bathhouse. But when a pink wombat appears out of thin air and begs the boys to help him save the planet, even the idlest high schoolers jump to action. Watch the magical boys transform and save the earth with the power of LOVE!
A stage play adaptation of the anime ran March 10-13 at the Zepp Blue Theater Roppongi in Tokyo.
