Both characters will debut in the show's ninth episode on Saturday.

The anime premiered on October 7 and Sentai Filmworks is streaming the series on HIDIVE as it airs in Japan.

Kazuhiro Yoneda (Mahou Shoujo Nante Mouiidesukara., Yona of the Dawn) is taking over for Hiro Kaburagi as director for the second season. Production is moving from Wit Studio to Studio DEEN. Jirō Omatsuri is replacing Hirotaka Katō as character designer in the second season. Midori Gotou is again writing the scripts and TOMISIRO is again composing the music.

The manga inspired a 13-episode television anime series that premiered in January 2014. Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired, and Sentai Filmworks released the series on home video in February 2015 under the title Hozuki's Coolheadedness. The manga also inspired three OADs that shipped with the 17th, 18th, and 19th volumes of the manga in 2015. A new OAD shipped with a limited edition of the manga's 24th volume on March 23, and it featured animation from Studio DEEN and Yoneda as director.
