The magical boys are back! Production of a second season of Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE! has been green-lit, together with a revelation of a new promotional visual, much to the delight of fans.
The news was announced at their event, “Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE! Matsuri!”, which took place on 9 August 2015 at Tokyo Metropolitan Hibiya Public Hall. Performers at the event included the voice cast of the Defense Club: Kazutomi Yamamoto, Yuichiro Umehara, Kotaro Nishiyama, Yusuke Shirai, Toshiki Masuda, and two seiyuu from the Conquest Club: Jun Fukuyama and Takuma Terashima.
The Anime Pony Canyon Youtube account has also started streaming a new promotional video teasing the production of the second season. The video features footage from the first season, along with the Defense Club’s new song, “LOVE FRIENDS”. Incidentally, “LOVE FRIENDS” is the coupling song of their new single, “Let’s Go!! LOVE Summer♪”, which will be going on sale 19 August 2015. Samples of the songs from the new single are available on the official anime homepage. The Cute High official twitter account urges fans to stay tuned for more news on the upcoming second season.
The first season of Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE! went on air in Winter 2015. The story follows the members of the Earth Defense Club: Yumoto Hakone (Kazutomi Yamamoto), En Yufuin (Yuichirou Umehara), Atsushi Kinugawa (Kotaro Nishiyama), Io Naruko (Yusuke Shirai) and Ryu Zao (Toshiki Masuda) in their daily activities. The five of them, with a trusty pink wombat by their side, transform into the Battle Lovers, the heirs to the throne of love, who are tasked with saving the world from monsters. Of course, they do get their due time off – with a nice visit to the hot springs after all their work is done.
Also announced recently – a Nendoroid version of En Yufuin will be produced. It will be sold under Orange Rouge, a brand set up jointly by Good Smile Company and Max Factory, catered towards making male character products like Nendoroids, Figma, scale figures and other character goods. More information such as price and release date will be announced in future.
Another event, titled “Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE! TOUR!” is slated to happen on 6 September 2015 at Morinomiya Piloti Hall in Osaka. In addition to the voice cast of the five main characters, Mugihito, who voices pink wombat “Wombat” and Tomokazu Sugita, who voices Gora Hakone, will appear at the event too.
I wonder what surprises might we be treated to then?
