The fall 2019 anime adaptation of the Marimashita! Iruma-kun manga saw release a twenty-three episode run that was streamed on Crunchyroll under the title of Welcome to Demon School, Iruma-kun. We learned it did pretty well overall in Japan as original creator Osamu Nishi previously revealed that a second season will be coming in spring 2021. With the series set for an April 17th, 2021 premiere in Japan, Crunchyroll has now confirmed that they’ll be picking up the show for streaming once again. They don’t have a start date/time set yet but it’ll be open to viewers in North America, Central America, South America, Europe, Africa, Oceania, the Middle East, and CIS when it does go live.
The second season will be directed by Makoto Morikawa based on the series composition by Kazuyuki Fudeyasu. The project is being animated at Bandai Namco Pictures and is slotted for twenty-three episodes.
The Japanese cast includes Ayumu Murase as Iruma Suzuki, Ryohei Kimura as Asmodeus Alice, Ayaka Asai as Valac Clara, and Takuya Sato as Sabnock Saburo.
The series comes from creator Osamu Nishi which began in 2017 and has eight volumes out so far. The property has had a slow but steady climb in compiled sales and there’s enough material for a solid cour to help raise its profile in the circulation of the magazine and eventual volumes as well.
Da Pump is handling the opening theme song for it with “No! No! Satisfaction” as the title while Amatsuki is performing the ending theme with “Kokoro Show Time.”
For the first season, the opening sequence with the song “Magical Babyrinth” by Da Pump and the ending sequence with the song “Debikyu” by Yu Serizawa.
