The official website for the television anime of Miyuki Abe's boys-love manga Super Lovers began streaming a promotional video for Super Lovers 2, the anime's second season, on Friday. The video previews the opening theme song "Hare-Iro Melody" (Sunny-Colored Melody) by Yūsuke Yata and the "Kaidō 4 Kyōdai" (The Four Kaidō Brothers).
The new season will premiere on January 12 on the AT-X, Tokyo MX, and Teletama (TV Saitama) channels.
The first season began with a high school boy named Haru and his mother living overseas. His mother orders him to take care of and "civilize" his adoptive brother Ren, a wild young boy who dislikes talking with other people. While their relationship is adversarial at first, they grow closer as they begin to understand one another. The second season's story begins with Haru's mother Haruko declaring she will "bring Ren back to Switzerland!"
The cast features:
- Junko Minagawa as Ren Kaidō
- Tomoaki Maeno as Haru Kaidō
- Yoshitsugu Matsuoka as Aki Kaidō
- Takuma Terashima as Shima Kaidō
- Ayumu Murase as Ikuyoshi Sasaki
- Jun Fukushima as Jūzen Kurosaki
- Atsuko Tanaka as Haruko D. Dieckmann
- Yoko Soumi as Mikiko Kashiwagi
- Ryoko Shiraishi as Kiri Kondō
- Mitsuki Saiga as Kiyoka

- Takuya Satō as Natsuo Shiba
Natsuo Shiba (pictured at left) is the second season's new character who is the paternal cousin of the Kaidō siblings. He is known as "Natsu" when he works as a host.
Shinji Ishihira (Fairy Tail, Tenbatsu Angel Rabbie, Log Horizon) is returning to direct the second season at Studio Deen. Yoshiko Nakamura (Hakkenden: Eight Dogs of the East, Hakuōki, Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun) also returns to supervise the series scripts. Miki Takihara (Squid Girl, Hakkenden: Eight Dogs of the East, Yurikuma Arashi) is back to design the characters, and Nippon Columbia is again producing the music.
Yūsuke Yata and the "Kaidō 4 Kyōdai" are also performing the ending theme song "Gyun to Love Song." Minagawa, Maeno, Matsuoka, and Terashima voice the "Kaido 4 Kyōdai" group as their characters Ren Kaidō, Haru Kaidō, Aki Kaidō, and Shima Kaidō, respectively.
The first anime premiered on April 6, and Crunchyroll streamed the series as it aired in Japan.
