Anime Osomatsu-san will get a second season! The series released new visuals and comments from the cast of the sextuplets and director Yoichi Fujita!
The voices of the sextuplets will be returning: Takahiro Sakurai, Yuichi Nakamura, Hiroshi Kamiya, Jun Fukuyama, Daisuke Ono, and Miyu Irino. The cast is full of well-known names and fans can relax since they are all staying for Season 2. The same goes for director Fujita and other staff members like Shuu Matsubara (Series Composition), Naoyuki Asano (Character Design), and the animation studio Pierrot.
‘It seems like it doesn’t concern anyone, but I think it is great that I can keep making a program that is connected to the name “Fujio Akatsuka.” This time, like last time, I won’t try anything special and just be careful not to die before it gets aired, and I won’t be taking breaks,’ director Yoichi Fujita commented in the unique way he always does.
We also have comments from the voice actors of the sextuplets. Takahiro Sakurai, who voices the oldest brother, Osomatsu, showed his enthusiasm, ‘What? No! Really? No way! Unbelievable! Can’t be! You should rethink this! I’ll do my best!’
There were also new visuals by Asano, showing the sextuplets trying on new clothes and dressing up. We don’t know yet what adventures those six will experience in the second season and when it will air, but we can look forward to it!
Osomatsu-san is based on a manga named Osomatsu-kun by Fujio Akatsuka and tells the story of a family of sextuplets. The anime depicts the sextuplets as adults. The first season of the anime aired between October 2015 and March 2016.
■ Comments from the sextuplets
Takahiro Sakurai (Oldest, Osomatsu)
‘What? No! Really? No way! Unbelievable! Can’t be! You should rethink this! I’ll do my best!’
Yuichi Nakamura (Second born, Karamatsu)
‘Wow, a second season. Even with the favorable response, there was nothing being announced. I thought “I guess there is no way they will be allowed to make a second season, then,” …but here it is! (laugh) Once again I will do my best to paint a smile on your face every week.’
Hiroshi Kamiya (Third born, Choromatsu)
‘Everyone! Thank you for waiting…or rather, some people are probably saying “It’s finally over!” so I am worried if there are actually people who were waiting… But anyway, we will continue! Let us continue! Please! I’ll do stupid things that will exceed your imagination!’
Jun Fukuyama (Fourth born, Ichimatsu)
‘Somehow a second season was decided for those weird sextuplets and somehow I am glad to have somehow heard it somewhere since I somehow want to do it again. So everybody just somehow support us, please.’
Daisuke Ono (Fifth born, Juushimatsu)
‘Thanks to everybody’s support there will be a second season! Thank you, king-sized game-winning home run! I will continue being the voice for this season and want to “hustle hustle, muscle, muscle”!’
Miyu Irino (Youngest, Todomatsu)
‘Finally a second season? I think it will be fun, but the first season was……. As before I will give my best! It should be interesting. Probably!’

No, but actually I want a break now.’
