If you're watching this show for shipping, then you might be happy. Future volumes delve considerably into Hibike-ish akogare and shinyuu stuff.

Wait, not one but TWO of my favourite seiyuus are joining the cast?! Such a rare treat!! I remember liking the first season a lot back when it aired but I'm even more excited for the continuation now – hope it'll live up to the hype! (人 ᵔ▽ᵔ)
– Let's prove to 'em, with our everything, that
the lives of outsiders like us have value too! Gyahahaha~☆
