The official website for the television anime of Yūgo Kobayashi's Aoashi manga began streaming on Wednesday a promotional video for the show's second cours (quarter of a year). The video previews the new opening theme song "Presence" by Superfly.
The anime's second cours will debut with the 13th episode on July 2.

Akira Sato (Release the Spyce) is directing the anime at Production I.G. Masahiro Yokotani (Free! - Iwatobi Swim Club, All Out!!, Tropical-Rouge! Precure) is in charge of the series scripts. Manabu Nakatake, Toshie Kawamura, Asuka Yamaguchi, and Saki Hasegawa are all credited for character design, with Natake and Yamaguchi also credited as chief animation directors. Naho Seike, Yukiko Watabe, Miho Daidouji, and Eisuke Shirai are credited as sub-character designers. Kenichi Takeshita, Jun Soga, and Kenji Iizuka are credited for soccer supervision. Masaru Yokoyama is composing the music.
The manga centers on third-year middle school student Ashito Aoi, who lives in Ehime prefecture. Ashito has a strong talent in soccer, but he tries to hide it. Due to his very straightforward personality, he causes a disaster that serves as a huge setback for him. Then, Tatsuya Fukuya — a veteran of the strong J-Club team Tokyo City Esperion and coach of the club's youth team — appears in front of Ashito. Tatsuya sees through Ashito and sees his talent, and invites him to try out for the youth team in Tokyo.
