Senki Zesshou Symphogear – Second Season Slated for July


After the rerun of the first season on Tokyo MX TV, it was announced that second season of sci-fi-action anime series Senki Zesshou Symphogear will premiere this July.

Cast and some staff from the first season will be returning for the second season.

First season episode director Katsumi Ono and chief animation director Satoru Fujimoto will be the second season’s new director and  character designer, respectively. They will be replacing director  Tatsufumi Itou and Satoshi Koike.

Two years ago, a pair of idols, Tsubasa Kazanari and Kanade Amō, collectively known as ZweiWing, fought against an alien race known as Noise using armor known as Symphogear. To protect a girl named Hibiki Tachibana, who got severely wounded by the Noise, Kanade sacrificed herself. Two years later, as Tsubasa has fought the Noise alone, Hibiki ends up gaining the same power as Kanade.
