2nd season of original anime by Code Geass director premieres July

The official website of the Active Raid television anime revealed the theme songs for the anime's second season on Tuesday.

The character Liko (voiced by Tomoyo Kurosawa) will perform the ending theme song "Field Trip!!." The song's single CD is slated to ship on July 27, and besides the title song, the CD will also contain the song "Link Ring," as well as instrumental versions of both songs. The character of Liko appeared in the show as an AI mascot on various computer interfaces, but became pivotal to the plot in its latter half.

Yuka Aisaka will perform the opening theme song "Cerulean Squash." The song's single CD is slated to ship on August 3, and besides the title song, it will also contain the song "Dependence," as well as instrumental versions of both songs. Aisaka performed the first season's ending theme song "Tōmei na Yozora."

The anime will premiere in Japan in July.

The story is set in a part of Tokyo that has descended into a quagmire, and it follows the Special Public Security Division Third Mobile Assault Eighth Unit — popularly called "The Eighth" — who don powered armor "Willware" exoskeletons to counter the rise in crime. Assistant inspector Asami Kazari is assigned to The Eighth with the task of assessing the unit's status and reporting it to her superiors. But her true goal is to rehabilitate this sloppy, haphazard, justice-less group.

Goro Taniguchi (Planetes, Code Geass, Maria the Virgin Witch) is serving as chief director on the original television anime at Production IMS. Orange is producing the 3D CG. Noriaki Akitaya (Bakuman., Persona 3 The Movie #1 Spring of Birth, Castle Town Dandelion) is directing the anime, and Naruhisa Arakawa (MAOYU, Spice and Wolf, Outbreak Company) is writing the scripts. Artist and manga creator Shun Saeki ( Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma) is drawing the original character designs, while Asako Nishida (Love Live, Simoun, Vampire Knight) is designing the characters for animation. Kotaro Nakagawa (Planetes, Code Geass, Prison School) is composing the music.

The first 12-episode season premiered in Japan on January 7. Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan.
