The official website for the television anime of Ken Akamatsu's UQ Holder! Magister Negi Magi! 2 manga revealed five more cast members and the show's October 2 premiere date on Friday.

The new cast members include:

The anime will premiere on October 2 at 24:00 (effectively October 3 at 12:00 a.m.) on Tokyo MX, KBS Kyoto, Sun TV, and BS11. The series will also air an hour later on tvk. The anime will stream in Japan on GyaO! starting in October.

The previously announced main cast includes:

The manga is getting a separate upcoming original anime DVD (OAD) that will be bundled with the manga's 14th volume on September 8. The OAD will show when Touta and 16-year-old Evangeline met, as well as an original episode about "naked friendship," starring Kurōmaru, Karin, and Kirie at the Senkyōkan inn's open-air bath.

UQ Holder! is set in the world of Akamatsu's Negima! Magister Negi Magi manga, and takes place years after the earlier manga. The story centers on a boy named Touta who dreams of leaving his small town and moving to the city. However, he must first defeat his teacher, the immortal Evangeline.

Youhei Suzuki (Urara Meirochō, Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon? Sword Oratoria) is directing the anime at J.C. Staff. Akamatsu himself is in charge of the series scripts alongside Shogo Yasukawa (Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma, Alderamin on the Sky). Masahiro Fujii (Hayate the Combat Butler, The Familiar of Zero) is designing the characters, and EGG FIRM is producing the series. Yuka Takakura, Yūki Hirose, Ai Kayano, Yui Ogura, Sayaka Harada, and Akari Kitō will perform the theme song "Happy ☆ Material."
