The series will also air on TV Osaka, TV Aichi, BS Japan, and AT-X.
Pony Canyon also revealed two new visuals, one for the main cast (pictured in top image below) and one for the new twin characters (pictured bottom in image below) Akihiko Beppu (played by Keisuke Koumoto) and Haruhiko Beppu (played by Yoshiki Murakami). The two are in a group called VEPPer.
Chikyū Bōeibu (Earth Defense Club), the group comprised of the five main voice actors, will again perform the opening theme "Futten Toppa ☆ Love Is Power ☆" (Past the Boiling Point Love Is Power). Koumoto and Murakami will perform the ending theme song "Anata wa Haruka Ittōsei" (You Are a Bright Distant Star) as their characters.
Studio Comet is animating the new 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 first season premiered in Japan in January 2015. Crunchyroll, Funimation, and Viewster streamed the anime as it aired in Japan. Ponycan USA released the series on DVD and Blu-ray Disc combo packs.
