The official website of the Active Raid television anime revealed a key visual, broadcast times, and four additional cast members for the anime's second season on Thursday. The website also revealed the full title Active Raid: Kidō Kyōshūshitsu Dai-Hakkei 2nd.
The series will premiere on Tokyo MX on July 12 at 12:30 a.m., and also air on Sun TV, KBS Kyoto, TV Aichi, and BS NTV.
The new cast includes:
- Yukari Tamura as Emilia Edelman
- Aimi Tanaka as Marimo Suzuki

Yuka Aisaka will perform the opening theme song "Cerulean Squash" and the character Liko (voiced by Tomoyo Kurosawa) will perform the ending theme song "Field Trip!!."
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.
