‘My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU’ Anime Second Season Details Revealed
My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU
We learned this past spring that the spring 2013 series My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU was headed for a second season, which was timed nicely to the North American home video release of the series from Sentai Filmworks this past summer. While hopes and expectations were for the same team to come back for it when it lands in 2015, that’s not going to be the case. The series will be directed by Kei Oikawa at studio feel. Shotaro Shuga is back on board to set the series composition, but Yuichi Tanaka is on to handle the character designs this time around.
The main cast is returning, which is certainly a plus. That cast includes Nao Tōyama as Yui Yuigahama, Saori Hayami as Yukino Yukinoshita, Takuya Eguchi as Hachiman Hikigaya, Mikako Komatsu as Saika Totsuka, Nobuyuki Hiyama as Yoshiteru Zaimokuza, Aoi Yūki as Komachi Hikigaya, Mai Nakahara as Haruno Yukinoshita, Ryoka Yuzuki as Shizuka Hiratsuka and Takashi Kondo as Hayato Hayama.
The series is also getting a new name, playing up the amusing factor nicely, as it will be called My youth romantic comedy is wrong as I expected. Sequel.
Based on a series of light novels by Wataru Watari, the first season of the anime was directed by Ai Yoshimura (Oreimo, Gintama) and produced by Brains Base (Baccano!, Natsume Yujin-cho).
Series concept: Opposites may attract, but putting them together can result in chemical burns, electric shocks, and explosions. Enter Hachiman Hikigaya, a pessimistic high school student with no friends, no interest in making any, and the firm belief that everyone else’s cherished high school experiences are either delusions or outright lies. Hachiman finds himself coerced by his well-meaning student advisor into joining the one member Service Club. There he encounters club founder Yukino Yukinoshita, a smart, attractive, walking superiority complex who looks down on the entire student body. These two negative personalities are quick to attract Yui Yuigahama, who’s cute, bright, cheerful, and needs the Service Club’s help to… bake cookies? Is this a recipe for romance or the precursor for a nuclear meltdown? Will there be cookies, nookie, or a reason for everyone to play hooky? Get ready for rom-com gone totally wrong as the barrage a trois of the Service Club is unleashed on the unsuspecting student body in MY TEEN ROMANTIC COMEDY – SNAFU!
