Cool. Just wondering if it's gonna be a continuation and ignore the original bits of the first anime, or if it's something else.

Awesome, I enjoyed the first series so hopefully this one will be good too. Guess it gives me an excuse to catch up on the manga now too.

Wow I've never quicked on anything so fast, never expected them to adapt the Impure King arc after the filler ending of the previous anime.

Since its A-1 Pictures, I guess they'll ignore the original material and continue adapting
from where they stopped (episode 17) like they did with Kuroshitsuji.

Since ANIPLEX was the producer, this news didn't surprise me, especially with the previous countdown. Well, I think ANIPLEX will revives their "old anime" again after D. Gray-man this year. I'm expecting MAGI S3 after this.

So another 13 episodes for Impure King Arc, well it's quite good.

FINALLY.

Yes! I can't wait.

I hoped the announcement would be a sequel. The series is way too popular to just get one season.

This news is a shock to me considering how the ending was for the first season. Not sure how they see even going to be able to adapt more of the manga properly.

I remembered Season 1 had an original ending that was terrible. I hope they follow the manga closely this time (but I got low hopes for this)

I hope they did a remake instead. I did like the non-filler parts but I guess this is better than nothing at all.

Great.
Dunno why are people complaining about the first season, it was a lot better than the entire manga by far.

Pls let it be a remake, they have enough content to adapt now compared to the 2011 one.

I actually enjoyed the first season, then I heard the ending was an anime original so thought there wouldn't be an anime sequel so this is great news for me.

When I first heard about the countdown timer, I had a feeling this was coming. I guess this should be enough motivation to re-watch the first season to refresh my memory.

FINALLY!!! I can't believe it's S2 for real...
since the news of countdown I was scared it might be another stage play or another live-action movie since it's popular now! but I'm so glad they decided to continue with this <333
well first season was original ending but I guess this is not a bother and I'm already used to this from A-1 Pictures xD they did this with Kuroshitsuji & Magi and now Ao no Exorcist xD

I wonder if it's gonna be a 1 or 2 cour since they have enough material?
well anything is welcome! the manga sales is really good that's why I was hoping for a new season and I can't believe it's happening! D.Gray-Man and now AnE <33 it was in the list of hope for season 2 after all xD I wonder if Pandora Hearts have any chance for a Re-make or new seaosn though ><

OMG I'm so hyped, I really loved this anime, and they really fucked up the end instead of just leaving it where it was and wait till the manga was more advanced or sth...
I hope it's a 2 cour :D

Unfortunately It's probably going to be 1 cour, Impure King arc isn't big enough for 2 cours
