Sentai Filmworks Licenses the Second Season of the Peter Grill and the Philosopher’s Time Anime

Sentai Filmworks has announced that it has acquired the second season of Peter Grill and the Philosopher’s Time, the outrageously irreverent comedy anime series based on Daisuke Hiyama’s manga of the same name that delighted anime fans with laugh-out-loud humor and cheeky innuendo. The series will premiere on HIDIVE in 2022.

Peter Grill is back and ready for action. Between quelling a goblin incursion, improving trade negotiations with the dwarves and placating a watchful sister who might just go berserk to keep him in line, Peter has his work cut out for him. He’s the most sought-after hero in the land… and that’s before counting the myriad woman interested in his “other” talents. It will take every last scrap of Peter’s willpower to keep his focus on heroing in another raunchy season of Peter Grill and the Philosopher’s Time – Super Extra.

Produced by returning animation studio Wolfsbane and joined by studio Seven, the series is directed by Tatsumi, who also serves as the series’ new chief animation director.

The second season of Peter Grill and the Philosopher’s Time stars returning seiyuu Hiro Shimono as Peter Grill, Ayana Taketatsu as Mimi Alpacas, Hibiku Yamamura as Lisa Alpacas, Sayaka Sembongi as Piglette Pancetta, Akari Uehara as Vegan Eldoriel, Mikoi Sasaki as Gobco Ngiel and Suzuna Kinoshita as Lucy Grill. They are joined by Shiori Izawa as Misslim Netherlant and Kana Yuki as Fulltalia Eldoriel.

Peter Grill and the Philosopher’s Time – Super Extra will premiere on HIDIVE in 2022 with a home video release to follow.

As twisted and unromantic as that demand may appear, it does seem doable, right? Unfortunately, there’s an even greater moral obstruction standing between Shougo and a rich happily ever after, as one of the students attending the school is Shougo’s long lost little sister… and he has no idea which one she is. Can Shougo navigate this minefield and find a future bride without committing a major sin? And if his little sister is revealed, will it be in a manner that’s socially acceptable?

So, even though Peter just wants to marry his fiancée, he’s instead being beset by a bodacious bevy of Peter-obsessed females fiercely determined to get into his bed and/or ironclad pants. That would be a sticky situation even if the bawdy belligerents were merely human, but with elves, trolls and orcs all craving a little private Peter action, can even Peter stand up to this wave of pulchritudinous force? His flesh may be strong but his will may not hold up quite as rigidly when comely babe after babe keeps coming to test this poor Peter’s mettle in Peter Grill.

Except… the girl who finds him is Nozomi Komine, who lives in the house across from his, and she covers for him. Unfortunately, that isn’t an act of kindness, it’s the prelude to blackmail. Because Nozomi has certain games that she’d like to play and Kimio’s location and guilt make him the perfect plaything. And if that’s not bad enough, the situation gets really out of control when she starts bringing other girls in to play with her toy in Nozo X Kimi.
