2 min read

Testament of Sister New Devil Burst Season 2With the second volume of Testament of Sister New Devil arriving from Peppermint Anime next week in Germany, the distributor has revealed that they’ll be bringing out the second series as well. The show has done pretty well overall overseas and in Japan but has lacked any North American release as it’s presumed that Crunchyroll holds the home video rights as they streamed the two seasons previously. No details of when the second series will arrive from Peppermint Anime but it’ll be done on both DVD and Blu-ray releases as the first season was.

The original work comes from writer Tetsuto Uesu with artwork by Nekosuke Ookuma that began in 2012 and has nine volumes to its name so far. The second season was animated at Production IMS with Hisashi Saito directing based on scripts by Sumio Uetake and character designs by Yoshihiro Watanabe.

The cast includes Yuichi Nakamura as Basara Toujou, Ayaka Asai as Mio Naruse, Sarah Emi Bridcutt as Yuki Nonaka, Kaori Fukuhara as Maria Naruse, Yuu Asakawa as Chisato Hasegawa, Keiji Fujiwara as Jin Toujou, Tomokazu Sugita as Takigawa Yahiro, Iori Nomizu as Kurumi Nonaka, Go Inoue as Takashi Hayase, Daisuke Hirakawa as Kyoichi Shiba, Seiko Yoshida as Zest and Kenjiro Tsuda as Mamoru Sakazaki.

This is the second anime adaptation of one of Uesu’s properties as we previously saw Aesthetica of a Rogue Hero get adapted, which was streamed and licensed in North America by FUNimation.

The manga is adapted from the light novels of the same name that come from writer Tetsuo Uesu. The light novel series began in 2012 and has nine volumes out so far in Japan. The property has two manga series out there and Seven Seas has picked up the rights to the main one by Kashiwa Miyako, which began in the spring of 2013 and has two volumes released to date as it’s been serialized in Shonen Ace. Seven Seas brought the first volume out in February 2016.

Plot concept: The revolves around Basara Tojo, a first-year high school student who is flustered by a sudden question by his eccentric father, “Hey, didn’t you used to say you wanted a little sister?” Plus, his father announces that he is getting remarried. His father brings over two beautiful step-sisters, but then embarks on an overseas trip. However, the two sisters Mio and Maria Naruse are actually a novice devil and succubus.
