The official Twitter account for To Be Hero original anime series has officially announced its second project. Titled To Be Heroine, the anime will have Japanese broadcast on Saturdays at 9:00 p.m on Tokyo MX, beginning May 19, 2018, and run for seven 24-minute episodes. Following the first season's gag action theme, the second season will feature an original story and a new set of characters. It was previously revealed via the Haoliners Anime Project 2016–2018 Guide Book distributed at AnimeJapan 2018.

Synopsis
You is about to leave home when she suddenly enters an incredible world. Appearing in front of her is an eight-year-old naked boy, and before she could even grasp the situation, she's attacked by assassins from a mafia group who were chasing the young boy. What was even more unrealistic for You was that the leader of this mafia was another assassin's attack. Who are those naked kids, why did her shoe turn into a warrior and above all, what kind of world did eight-year-old boy come from? Just like the first one, he's also almost naked! While trying to escape from the attackers, You loses one of her shoes and by a strange kind of magic, her shoe turned into a warrior who was able to save her by blocking the You enter?

Can't wait to see more of LAN's work, this guy's promising. The only recurring VA for the 2nd season is Moa Tsukino and it's a different character so I assume a different story from the prequel.

And Ray as in the Ray that graduated from singing? Is she back again?

@Antagonized, Ray is a song title, not the singer's name. it's "Ray" by PassCode (idol group)

That synopis tho... I assume it's an Isekai?? With such a weird plot like that... Ok, this one is noted! XD


I seriously need to stop watching idol anime... The fact that I can't afford to buy their CDs yet keep making my heart broken..

So people speak Chinese in the real world and Japanese in isekai, lol. That's an interesting and bold decision.

To Be Heroine is a fitting title. I like it.

It looks like the op and ed are different from the Chinese version. But I hope they keep the soundtrack cause it's amazing, especially the one during the duel.

This will be something like a shoujo action with female MC and bishonen love interests?
Level of my english is still too poor, so ask not particularly angry because of my terrible grammar.
