In this year's 20th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Young Jump magazine, they will be revealing that the TV anime based on Sakaku Head's manga series "Himouto! Umaru-chan"will be getting a second season. The live-streamed DaraNama Returns program also announced the news on Saturday. The anime's official website and Young Jump posted a teaser promotional video and visual for the season coming this fall (can be found below).
The main staff from the series first season is slated to return for the second season, this includes the anime studio Doga Kobo, director Masahiko Ohta, series script supervisor Takashi Aoshima, and character designer Aya Takano. According to the description of the teaser video, the following main cast will be returning to reprise their roles:
Aimi Tanaka as Umaru Doma
Kenji Nojima as Taihei Doma
Akari Kageyama as Nana Ebina
Haruka Shiraishi as Kirie Motoba
Yurina Furukawa as Sylphynford Tachibana
The first televised anime series first premiered in July 2015 and Crunchyroll streamed the anime as it aired. Sentai Filmworks licensed the anime for North America and will release the series with a English dub.
The 10th volume of the manga will ship on April 19 and will also be bundled with an OVA (original video animation) DVD which the original TV staff & cast will also be returning for.
Sankaku Head launched the manga in Weekly Young Jump in 2013 (after running an earlier two chapter Himouto! Umaru-chan version in Miracle Jump in 2012). 2.7 million copies are in print as of March of this year.
The manga centers around Taihei Doma and his little sister Umaru, who boasts beautiful looks as well as prowess in both school and sports. However, she has a certain secret. Everyone may think she is the ideal girl, but she is anything but. "Himōto" is a pun on "imōto" (little sister) and "himono," which means "dried fish," but in slang can refer to a woman who is proper in public but lazy at home.
The manga inspired the Akita Imokko! Ebina-chan, Himōto! Umaru-chan S, and Himōto! Umaru-chan SS spinoff manga. Himōto! Umaru-chan SS ended on February 28. The manga has also inspired the Himōto! Umaru-chan F: Himōto Enikki fanbook and the Himōto! Umaru-chan N novel.

Hyper Dragonball Z is an unofficial Dragonball Z fighting game created to resemble what a DBZ fighting game would look like it if was made by the Japanese game development company Capcom. The game is created by a team of people who create content for the fighting game engine "M.U.G.E.N". M.U.G.E.N. is a game engine that's been around for years that is used mostly to make fighting games which allows people to make their own dream fighting game.....although there is some small programming & designing on the developers part required if you want to make your game. You can download a pre-made game from other developers and play them right off the bat let alone customize them to your liking (again, if you know how).
Hyper Dragonball Z is available to download now from the groups facebook page.
