HOUSTON, July 9, 2015 – The science fiction and sexual shenanigans continue at Sentai Filmworks with the announcement of the latest installment in the hit To Love Ru series: To Love Ru Darkness 2, as part of its Summer 2015 anime season lineup. Based once again on the manga sensation by Saki Hasemi and Kentaro Yabuki, the 12 episode series continues to explore the completely bizarre, side-splittingly hilarious repercussions that occur when beings from other worlds (but with conveniently compatible body types) get hitched in order to promote interplanetary relations. 


As one would expect, To Love Ru Darkness 2 reunites many of the vets from the To Love Ru franchise.  Atsushi Otsuki (Argvolen, Kanokon: The Girl Who Cried Fox), director of To Love Ru Darkness, is back at the helm, while character designer Yuichi Oka (Overdrive, Argevollen) and music director Takeshi Watanabe (This Ugly Yet Beautiful World, Strawberry Marshmellow, Guardian Ninja Mamoru) also encore in their respective duties.  Overall animation production is once again being handled by XEBEC (Broken Blade, Martian Successor Nadesico, Zombie Loan).


To Love Ru Darkness 2 is scheduled for a July 2015 release and will soon be available through select digital outlets with a home video release to follow.
