posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The BS (broadcast satellite) channel Dlife announced on Saturday that Marvel Future Avengers, the latest television anime based on the Marvel comic book superheroes, will receive a second season. Marvel Future Avengers Sesaon 2 will debut this summer. Dlife is streaming an announcement video for the news season, but the video is region-locked to Japan.
The returning cast for the new season includes:
- Eiji Hanawa as Iron Man
- Kazuhiro Nakaya as Captain America
- Yasuyuki Kase as Thor
- Kenichirou Matsuda as Hulk
- Kaori Mizuhashi as Wasp
- Aki Kanada as Makoto
- Atsushi Tamaru as Adi
- Juri Kimura as Kuroe
Yuzo Sato (Iron Man, Gokusen, Kaiji) is returning to direct the new season at the studio Madhouse, and Japanese writer Ryuu King (Dragon Ball Super scripts, Marvel Disk Wars: The Avengers) is again in charge of the series scripts. Takahiro Umehara (Iron Man, Beyblade, Claymore) is again designing the characters.
The anime's first season premiered on Dlife in July 2017.
The anime follows Makoto, a young boy who gains superpowers due to an evil gene manipulation experiment. Makoto and other youths join the Avengers as apprentices named "Future Avengers." The anime shows Makoto and others as they train, fight villains, and grow — all under Avengers members Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, Thor, and Wasp.
Teruaki Mizuno (Kyōryū Taisen Dinobout, Metallica Metalluca) is drawing a manga version that debuted in Shogakukan's Bessatsu Coro Coro Comics Special magazine's April 2017 issue.
