The official website of the television anime adaptation of Yuuki Yaku's Jaku-Chara Tomozaki-kun (Bottom-Tier Character Tomozaki) light novel announced on Friday that a new anime project is in production.

The romantic comedy television anime aired for 12 episodes in Winter 2021. Funimation streamed the anime series with English subtitles and dub.

Shinsuke Yanagi (Ryuuou no Oshigoto!) helmed the series at Project No.9. Fumihiko Shimo (Dumbbell Nan Kilo Moteru?) handled the series composition and Akane Yano (Netoge no Yome wa Onnanoko ja Nai to Omotta?) designed the characters. Hiromi Mizutani (Tanaka-kun wa Itsumo Kedaruge) composed the music.

Yaku began publishing the romantic comedy light novel through the Gagaga Bunko label in May 2016, featuring illustrations by Fly. Shokagukan published the ninth volume on January 24 last year. Yen Press licensed the light novel in November 2018 in English and shipped the seventh volume on January 11.

Eight Chida drew a manga adaptation in Gangan Joker magazine from December 2017 to February 2021. Square Enix shipped the sixth and final volume on April 22. Comikey licensed the manga digitally in English last November.

Synopsis
Fumiya Tomozaki is Japan's best player in the online game Attack Families, commonly known as "Tackfam." Despite holding such a revered title, a lack of social skills and amiability causes him to fall short in his everyday high school life. Failing to have any friends, he blames the convoluted mechanics and unfair rules of life, forcing him to give up and proclaim himself a bottom-tier character in this "game."

After a fateful meeting with another top-tier Tackfam player, Fumiya is shocked to discover the player's true identity—Aoi Hinami, a popular, smart, and sociable classmate who is the complete opposite of himself. Aoi, surprised at how inept Fumiya is at everything besides Tackfam, decides to assist him in succeeding in what she calls the greatest game of them all. Through the gruesome ordeals of social interactions and relationships, Fumiya begins to advance tiers in the glorious game of life. [Written by MAL Rewrite]

GREAT! more Hinami Aoi. I hope it will be a full second season rather than a movie or some special episode.

I'm a bit surprised. Most of the series project No. 9 does usually only get one single-cour season (maybe an OVA) and then disappear. I haven't watched this series so I can't say why. Now this is prompting me to watch it.

Didn't expect this series to have an announcement for a 2nd season already. Looking forward to it.

Really hope that it'll be a new season! I unexpectedly enjoyed the show a lot when it aired last year and I've been hoping for a sequel ever since. Whatever it'll be, I'm glad we're getting something.

Hope it will be S2, this series reminds me of SNAFU

Pretty surprising (albeit welcome) news given how mediocre the first anime's budget seemed to be.

All such shows are reminiscent of SNAFU, since Hachiman's adventures are as classic and an example of the genre as Index is for high school science fiction.

The studio (Project No. 9) had never made a second season to any of their anime adaptations before so I was worried that that was the end for the series but I'm glad that they're coming back. It better be a second season, at the very least a movie.

OMG Yes! I fking loved the first season! I really wished and prayed for this to get a 2nd season. I thought It'd never get a 2nd season. But there was still a bit of hope left. This season is easily going to be in my top 10 fav.

I hope it's the second season!
This anime was very cute and I really enjoyed the inner struggle between being and appearing that Tomozaki experiences.
