The official website for the television anime of Miyuki Abe's boys-love manga Super Lovers announced on Wednesday that Takuya Satō (JoJo's Bizarre Adventure's Caesar, Cardfight!! Vanguard's Toshiki) will play Natsuo Shiba in the second season. Shiba is a new character who is the paternal cousin of the Kaidō siblings. He is known as "Natsu" when he works as a host.
The website also announced that Satō will attend a Super Lovers event that will be held in Kawasaki's CLUB CITTA' venue on October 23. The first season's main cast and theme song performer Yūsuke Yata will also attend the event. The first Blu-ray Disc and DVD volume of the anime will include a priority ticket purchase application form for the event. The volume goes on sale in Japan this Friday.
The final episode of the anime's first season announced last week that the series will get a second season premiering in Janurary 2017. The main cast and staff will return for the second season.
The first anime premiered on April 6, and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan. Crunchyroll describes the anime's story:

Five years later, Haru reunites with Ren, all grown up in Tokyo, but...

Yoshiko Nakamura (Hakkenden: Eight Dogs of the East, Hakuōki, Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun) supervised the series scripts. Miki Takihara (Squid Girl, Hakkenden: Eight Dogs of the East, Yurikuma Arashi) designed the characters, and Nippon Columbia produced the music.
