The official website for the Nanbaka television anime began streaming a new promotional video for the anime's second season on Tuesday. The video reveals new casts members for the second season.

The new cast members include:

Takaya Kuroda as Enki Gokū

Naozumi Takahashi as Ruka Gojō

Fuyuka Oura as Noriko Sanzō and Hōzuki Sanzō

Nanbaka premiered in Japan on October 4, and Crunchyroll is streaming the series as it airs with English subtitles. The anime adapts Shō Futamata's Nanbaka manga, which Crunchyroll is also offering online. Funimation is dubbing the anime as it airs in Japan. Crunchyroll will continue streaming into the anime's second season with no breaks.

Funimation describes the series:

Welcome to Nanba, the world's largest, most impenetrable prison. Locked away in cell block 13 are four inmates who provide more than enough trouble for Officer Hajime. Between attempted breakouts, gambling, and general misbehaving, these four believe that just because they're in prison doesn't mean they can't have fun! Follow the hijinks of Jyugo, Uno, Rock, and Nico as they pass time behind bars.

Unlike the first 13-episode season which is now airing on Japanese television until December, the second season will run weekly on digital services in Japan, starting with the d Anime Store (Docomo Anime Store) on January 4. The first episode of the new season, episode 14, will also be available on the anime's official website for free.

The manga will also get a special event anime in April.
