A flyer from this year’s AnimeJapan 2017 event revealed on Thursday that Blood Blockade Battlefront & Beyond (Kekkai Sensen & Beyond), the second anime season based on Yasuhiro Nightow’s Blood Blockade Battlefront manga, will premiere on MBS, Tokyo MX, and BS11 in October. The anime will have 12 episodes. The text on the flyer states that the anime will “reproduce the comic more faithfully.”
BONES will once again animate the series. Shigehito Takayanagi (Galaxy Angel A, The World God Only Knows, Dagashi Kashi) is taking over as director of the anime from the previous season’s Rie Matsumoto, and Yasuko Kamo (Dagashi Kashi) is also taking over series composition duties from Kazunao Furuya. Toshihiro Kawamoto returns as character designer and chief animation director, and Taisei Iwasaki returns to compose the music.
