It’s been a while since we took a look at To Your Eternity season 2, but now we have a premiere date, key visual and some more cast members. First up, check out the striking new visual for the next stage of the series adapting Yoshitoki Oima’s manga, which is now set to premiere on October 23.
New cast members include Tomori Kusunoki (Setsuna Yuki in Love Live! Nijigasaki High School Idol Club) as Hisame:
Mitsuki Saiga (Rossiu Adai in Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann) as Kahaku:
And Takehito Koyasu (Ojisan in Uncle from Another World) as Bonchien:
As previously reported, a new director is on board for the second season. While the first had Masahiko Murata at the helm, To Your Eternity season 2’s director is Kiyoko Sayama (Prétear, Vampire Knight). The studio has also changed from Brain’s Base to Drive, which has produced projects like Vladlove and ACTORS: Songs Connection.
Kodansha Comics publishes the manga in English and Crunchyroll streamed the first season as it aired.
In the beginning, an “orb” is cast unto Earth. “It” can do two things: change into the form of the thing that stimulates “it”; and come back to life after death. “It” morphs from orb to rock, then to wolf, and finally to boy, but roams about like a newborn who knows nothing. As a boy, “it” becomes Fushi.
Through encounters with human kindness, Fushi not only gains survival skills, but grows as a “person”. But his journey is darkened by the inexplicable and destructive enemy Nokker, as well as cruel partings with the people he loves.
