Hozuki's Coolheadedness TV Anime Season 2 Returns in April
posted on by Egan Loo
The 13th episode of the second anime season based on Natsumi Eguchi's Hozuki's Coolheadedness (Hōzuki no Reitetsu) manga announced on Sunday that the season will resume next April. The second season's second cour (quarter-year), listed as "Hozuki's Coolheadedness Season 2 Part II," will begin airing that month. Eguchi drew an illustration to commemorate the upcoming second part of the season:
The season 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) took over for Hiro Kaburagi as director for the second season. Production moved from Wit Studio to Studio DEEN. Jirō Omatsuri replaced 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.
Kodansha Comics is releasing the manga digitally, and it describes the story:
In the afterlife, there exists Heaven and Hell. Hell consists of the Eight Greater Hells and the Eight Cold Hells, which are further divided into 272 subdivisions. Spearheading the seemingly endless, multifarious affairs in this gargantuan Hell is but one Fierce God, King Enma's first aide, Hozuki. Between this cool-headed sadist and his colorful band of peers, every day is a riot in Hell! And though this book might make Hell seem like a happening place, please try to behave during life!
Eguchi launched the manga in Kodansha's Morning magazine in 2011, and Kodansha shipped the 25th volume on September 22.
