Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai? Tensai-tachi no Renai Zunōsen, the second season to the television anime adapted from the manga of the same name, premiered on April 11th. Funimation streamed the anime as it aired in Japan.
This new season will include returning staff members, such as director Mamoru Hatakeyama, script supervisor Yasuhiro Nakanishi, character designer Yūko Yahiro, composer Kei Haneoka, and studio A-1 Pictures. Masayuki Suzuki performed the opening theme song “Daddy! Daddy! Do! feat. Airi Suzuki,” and Haruka Fukuhara performed the ending theme song, “Kaze ni Fukarete” (Blown by the Wind).
The series originally began in Shueisha’s Miracle Jump magazine when Akasaka sent it to them in May of 2015, but moved it to Young Jump in March 2016. The manga has also inspired two spinoff manga series.
The first television anime premiered in January 2019 and aired for 12 episodes. Aniplex of America streamed the series on Hulu, Crunchyroll, and Funimation. The company also released the anime on Blu-ray Disc on February 18th. The original manga, however, inspired a live-action film that opened in Japan on September of 2019. The film ranked at #1 in its opening weekend.
