It was previously announced in January 2022 that there will a new Bottom-Tier Character Tomozaki anime. 

The Bottom-Tier Character Tomozaki: 2nd Stage special PV also revealed that the anime will have its first offline event, Bottom-Tier Character Tomozaki Fes, on April 16 in Saitama, where the show is set in. Voice actors Gen Satou (Fumiya Tomozaki), Hisako Kanemoto (Aoi Hinami), Ikumi Hasegawa (Minami Nanami), Ai Kayano (Fuuka Kikuchi), Ryouko Maekawa (Hanabi Natsubayashi), and Nene Hieda (Yuzu Izumi) will be in attendance.

Aside from Bottom-Tier Character Tomozaki Fes, Saitama will be the location of a collaboration event from February 10 to March 31 that features a keyword rally and shop collaboration. Completing the rally will reward participants with a limited edition prize, while the shop collaboration will allow those who purchase items or food at participating stores to receive an original card.

The first season of Bottom-Tier Character Tomozaki aired in 2021 with 12 episodes. The anime is based on the light novels written by Yuuki Yaku with illustrations from Fly, which are published under Shogakukan’s Gagaga Bunko label.

Yen Press describes the light novels as:

Tomozaki is one of the best gamers in Japan, and in his opinion, the game of real life is one of the worst. No clear-cut rules for success, horribly balanced, and nothing makes sense. But then he meets a gamer who’s just as good as him, and she offers to teach him a few exploits…

The main staff of Bottom-Tier Character Tomozaki‘s first season includes Shinsuke Yanagi (My Stepmom’s Daughter Is My Ex) as director, Akane Yano (Prima Doll) as character designer, Fumihiko Shimo (Date A Live IV) as series composer, and Hiromi Mizutani (My Stepmom’s Daughter Is My Ex) as music composer. The show was produced by project No.9.

The light novel series began in 2016 and has 12 volumes, including two short story collections, as of January 2022. The light novels have inspired a manga adaptation by Eito Chida and a Minami Nanami-centric manga spin-off by Bana Yoshida.
