The lovable dragons and their human friends are back for a second season, folks! The anime’s official title is Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid S, and Kyoto Animation recently ran a livestream program for the new anime last night. There, they released the anime’s first full PV. The video features Tohru and Kobayashi rapping, as well as teases the new character, an evil dragon named Ilulu. It also announced the anime’s July 2021 premiere.
The staff also revealed a new staff for the anime. Sound! Euphonium director Tatsuya Ishihara will now be the anime’s new director. He will take over the late Yasuhiro Takemoto, who sadly passed away during the KyoAni arson fire. Shoko Ochiai will now also be serving as the new art director, taking over the late Mikiko Watanabe. However, a few staff are also returning. These include Miku Kadowaki as character designer and Yota Tsuruoka as sound director.
The second season’s official tittle is Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid S. The S in the title means “Super and Supreme Second Life will start!”. Kyoto Animation will once again be animating the project, with much of the cast and staff from the first season will be returning.
The anime adapts Coolkyoushinja’s manga about dragons living in human society. It follows a dragon named Tohru who lives as a maid for an office lady named Kobayashi. Other dragons also show up and also start living with other humans or among humans as well.
