HOUSTON, OCTOBER 8, 2015 – The hit sports anime HAIKYU!! continues as Sentai Filmworks proudly announces the acquisition of Haikyu!! Season 2, as part of the Fall 2015 anime season lineup. Based on the manga sensation by Haruichi Furudate, the new series picks up the drama, both on and off the volleyball court, as the relationship/rivalry between teammates Shoyo Hinata and Tobio Kageyama heats up. Throwing even more gasoline on the fire is the introduction of a new female character, Hitoka Yachi, who joins Kiyoko Shimizu as a manager for the Karasuno High volleyball club.

Haikyu!! Season 2 is scheduled for an October 2015 broadcast in Japan and will be available through select digital outlets with a home video release to follow.
