The official website for the anime based on Natsumi Eguchi's Hozuki's Coolheadedness (Hōzuki no Reitetsu) manga revealed on Sunday that Sumire Uesaka will perform the ending theme song for the second season's second cour (quarter-year) that will premiere in April. Uesaka voices Peach Maki in the series.

Uesaka performed the ending theme song "Riverside Lovers" for the first cour of the second season. She performed the ending songs "Parallax View" and "Caramel Momo Jam 120%" for the first season.

Uesaka also announced at the Sanrio Puroland theme park in Tokyo on Sunday that she will release her third personal album this summer. The album will be her first in about two-and-a-half years. In addition, she will hold a concert tour in winter. The staff of Fist of the Blue Sky Regenesis, the new television anime of Buronson, Nobuhiko Horie, and Tetsuo Hara's Souten no Ken (Fist of the Blue Sky) manga, previously announced that Uesaka will perform the ending theme song "Inori no Hoshizora" (Starry Night of Prayer) for the series that will also debut in April.

The second season of Hozuki's Coolheadedness premiered on October 7, and Sentai Filmworks streamed the first cour on HIDIVE as it aired 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. The 26th volume will ship on March 23.
