There’s plenty of anime to look forward to that are premiering next month, from fantastical battle anime to silly comedy series. One of the most exciting upcoming anime to look forward, too, is a little show called Kaguya-sama: Love is War. The first season of this wild romantically-tinged battle of idiotic wits delighted countless anime enthusiasts when it aired last year. Now, the second season of romantic and absurd hilarity is set to hit the airwaves next month. To help tide fans over until the exciting new set of episodes come out, a new trailer has been released that previews some of the action set to come.

Released via the official website and Twitter account for Kaguya-sama: Love is War (a YouTube link is also available but does not work outside of Japan), the new trailer lays it on thick with equal servings of drama and absurdity from the familiar cast of quirky characters from the first season of the show. The promotional video also reveals new cast members, like Miyu Tomita as Miko Iino and Rina Hidaka as Kobachi Osaragi. We also get to hear the brand new ending song for the series, “Kaze ni Fukarete” (Blown by the Wind). The song is performed by Haruka Fukuhara, who same may also recognize as Cure Custard, or Himaru Arisugawa, from the magical girl series Kirakira Precure a la Mode.
The second season of Kaguya-sama: Love is War is set to premiere on April 11 at 11:30 p.m. on Tokyo MX, Gunma TV, Tochigi TV, and BS11 in Japan, before later airing on MBS, TV Niigata, and Abema TV.
Much of the staff from the first season of Kaguya-sama: Love is War is set to return for this new season. Mamoru Hatakeyama will be directing, while Yasuhiro Nakanishi serves as the script supervisor and Yuko Yahiro returns as the character designer. Kei Haneoka returns to compose music as well, and the anime is once again being produced by A-1 Pictures. Returning cast includes Aoi Koga as Kaguya Shinomiya, Makoto Furukawa as Miyuki Shirogane, Konomi Kohara as Chika Fujiwara, and Ryōta Suzuki as Yū Ishigami.
