Media distribution service Crunchyroll announced on Wednesday that it will stream Super Lovers 2, the second television anime of Miyuki Abe's boys-love manga Super Lovers. The first episode will premiere worldwide outside of Asia on Thursday, January 12 at 12:00 p.m. EST.
The season will premiere in Japan 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!"
Takuya Satō is joining the cast as the new character Natsuo Shiba, 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" (The Four Kaidō Brothers) are returning to perform both the opening theme song "Hare-Iro Melody" (Sunny-Colored Melody) and the ending theme song "Gyun to Love Song," respectively. Minagawa, Maeno, Matsuoka, and Terashima voice the "Kaido 4 Kyōdai" group as their characters Ren Kaidō, Haru Kaidō, Aki Kaidō, and Shima Kaidō, respectively.
