  • Yūsuke Kobayashi as Chitan, the main vocalist and pianist whose parents are both famous musicians. "With my piano, I spin the world."
  • Taku Yashiro as Orion, the violinist and de facto band leader. "The glittering finest gold, noblesse oblige!"
  • Eishin Fudemura as Seren, the bass guitarist and son of a "cosmic-level" major group leader
  • Chiharu Sawashiro as Arugon, the drummer

Arcareafact is a new ikemen (handsome) band debuting with the major label Judas. All of the members are super-rich, and they formed the band after joining the label. At their first live concert, they declared that they are absolutely not the typical idol singers: "We aren't idols, but artists."

Takahiro Ikezoe is returning from the original Show by Rock!! series to direct the anime at Bones. Touko Machida, who wrote the scripts for the first eight episodes of the original anime, is handling the series composition. The main cast members — including the characters from the Plasmagica, Shingan Crimsonz, Tsurezure Naru Ayatsuri Mugenan, Trichronika, and Criticrista bands — are returning from the first season. Yūji Ueda is also returning to play Mable Arisugawa.

The first Show by Rock!! anime premiered in April 2015, and Funimation streamed the series as it aired in Japan. A series of spinoff shorts, Show By Rock!! Short!!, debuted on Tokyo MX on July 4 at 25:00 (technically July 5 at 1:00 a.m.) and will also air on Yomiuri TV and other channels. Funimation is streaming the series as it airs.
