Anime's 1st 6 episodes to adapt Takahiro, BUNBUN's Washio Sumi wa Yūsha de Aru novel series

The official Twitter account for the Yuki Yuna Is a Hero television anime series announced on Sunday that the anime is getting a second season in 2017. The sequel is titled Yūki Yūna wa Yūsha de Aru: Yūsha no Shō (Yuki Yuna Is a Hero: Hero Chapter).

(Note: the below video can't be viewed in the U.S., Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and Germany.)

The anime will be a sequel the Yuki Yuna Is a Hero television anime, and will also adapt author Takahiro and illustrator BUNBUN's illustrated novel series Washio Sumi wa Yūsha de Aru (Washio Sumi is a Hero).

The anime's first half (six episodes) will be the adaptation of Washio Sumi wa Yūsha de Aru titled Yūki Yūna wa Yūsha de Aru: Washio Sumi no Shō (Yuki Yuna Is a Hero: Washio Sumi Chapter). The anime will first have theatrical screenings in March 2017 before the anime airs on television.

Takahiro and BUNBUN launched the novel series in the June issue of Dengeki G's Magazine in 2014. A four-panel manga spinoff with a total of 30 chapters is available to read online for free.

The official website for the anime had teased in June that MinatoSoft's "Minato Damashii" event celebrating the company's 10th anniversary will have two announcements related to the Yuki Yuna Is a Hero franchise. The event took place on Sunday. MinatoSoft developed two short PC visual novels based on the Yuki Yuna Is a Hero anime, which were bundled with the the first and sixth Japanese home video volumes of the anime in December 2014 and May 2015, respectively.

The event also announced a series of character songs, serialization on a new illustrated novel titled Nogi Sonoko wa Yūsha de Aru, and a new live event to be held in the future.

The first anime's story takes place in the era of the gods, year 300. Yūna Yūki lives an ordinary life as a second year middle school student, but she's also a member of the "Hero Club," where club activities involve dealing with a mysterious being called "Vertex."

The 12-episode anime series premiered in October 2014, and Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired in Japan. Ponycan USA released the anime in three Blu-ray Disc/DVD combo packs in North America in 2015.
