It's been one year since the first publication on “Jump Square”, I couldn't be happier about the announcement of production for the sequel to the first season. The anime was able to be produced thanks to the fans. Please watch over me as I'll try my best at my own pace next year as well.

I'm so excited about the new season! I'm also glad I'm able to meet everyone again! I'll do my best while holding a trigger in my hand. Gotta eat more chicken curry.
(Mikumo Osamu/Kaji Yuki)
I'm happy that I have the opportunity to play Osamu in the anime again. Please do re-watch the series while you wait for the next season! Trigger on!!
(Amatori Chika/Tamuro Nao)
I'm very happy to be able to voice Chika again. Please look forward to the next season!
(Jin Yuichi/Nakamura Yuichi)
I hope to bring my performance into a mix of original scenes from the manga and new scenarios specially made for the anime. I can already tell through my Side Effect that all of the fans are eagerly waiting for the new season.
The previous season ended in with Hyuse in a pretty interesting spot. That's why I'm extremely happy about voicing him again. I'll do my very best to deliver a promising Hyuse for everyone.
