A new PV trailer has been released for the upcoming Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear Punch! anime series. The second season of the Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear series is scheduled for release on April 3, 2023.
The 73-second trailer highlights the heroine Yuna meeting various new characters throughout the second season.
The main voice cast includes Maki Kawase as Yuna, Azumi Waki as Fina, Rina Hidaka as Noire Foschurose, and Inori Minase as Shia Foschurose.
The production staff from season one is returning for the second season. It includes Yuu Nobuta as supervising director, Hisashi Ishii as series director, Takashi Aoshima as series screenwriter, Yuuki Nakano as character designer and chief animation director, Mimika Iwa as color designer, and Shigeo Komori as music composer. EMT Squared is handling the animation production for the anime once again.
Other staff members include Hariu Katsufumi (Slow Start) as art director and Youichirou Satou (White Album 2) as photography director.
The anime is based on the light novels written by Kumanano and illustrated by 029. It is published under Shufu to Seikatsusha’s PASH Books label and has released nineteen volumes as of October 2022, including a short story anthology. Seven Seas Entertainment releases both the light novels and manga adaptation in English.
The first 12-episode first season of Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear aired from October 7, 2020 to December 23, 2020.
Funimation streamed the anime as it aired, before Crunchyroll transferred the series to its platform. The synopsis is described as:
Yuna’s not your typical 15-year-old. First, she’s crazy rich from playing the stock market. Second, she’s a recluse obsessed with a VRMMO game, and she’s really good at that too. Her life is pretty much perfect—until she wakes up one day inside the game she loves and back at level one. She has to start over, but this time, she has a powerful bear suit that’s guaranteed to take her places!
