The Bottom-Tier Character Tomozaki: 2nd Stage anime will begin airing in January 2024. A new teaser visual, featuring Fuuka Kikuchi and Minami Nanami, was released with the release date reveal.

Bottom-Tier Character Tomozaki is based on the Shogakukan-published light novels written by Yuuki Yaku and illustrated by Fly, which are published under the Gagaga Bunko label. The first season had 12 episodes while 2nd Stage will have 13.


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 returning staff members for Bottom-Tier Character Tomozaki: 2nd Stage include director Shinsuke Yanagi, character designer Akane Yano, and series composer Fumihiko Shimo. project No.9 is still the animation production company.

Meanwhile, reprising their roles are::

• Gen Satou as Fumiya Tomozaki
• Hisako Kanemoto as Aoi Hinami
• Ikumi Hasegawa as Minami Nanami
• Ai Kayano as Fuuka Kikuchi
• Ryouko Maekawa as Hanabi Natsubayashi
• Nene Hieda as Yuzu Izumi

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 manga spin-off by Bana Yoshida.
