The official website for the Touken Ranbu: Hanamaru anime has announced the second season’s main staff and title. Tomoaki Koshida replaces Takashi Naoya as the director, and the writing collective WriteWorks replaces Pierre Sugiura as the series script supervisors. Junichiro Taniguchi is returning to design the characters, and Doga Kobo will continue to animate for the new season.
The new season’s title is Zoku Touken Ranbu: Hanamaru. (“Zoku” means “sequel” or “continuation.”) It will premiere in January 2018.
The second season will have the same setting as the first season. The 47 Touken Danshi characters will return from the first season, including Yasusada Yamatonokami and Kiyomitsu Kashū, and new characters will also appear.
