The October 2020 issue of Manga Time Kirara Carat announced a second season for the Machikado Mazoku (The Demon Girl Next Door) television anime on Friday. The official website also revealed an announcement promo and a commemorative visual (pictured).
After a strange dream of a mysterious ancestor, high school student Yuuko Yoshida wakes to see that she has grown demonic horns and a tail. Dazed and confused, her mother reveals to her a dark family secret: her family is descended from a Dark Clan that was banished to live powerless and destitute by their mortal enemies, the magical girls of the Light Clan. The only way to lift their ancestry's curse is for Yuuko to find a magical girl, murder her, and splatter her blood all over her ancestor's Demon God statue.
Fortunately for "Shadow Mistress Yuuko," a magical girl saves her from being run over by an oncoming truck. Unfortunately, Momo Chiyoda happens to be Yuuko's classmate at Sakuragaoka High and is much stronger than her in both strength and endurance. Taking pity on her wimpy assailant, the magical girl agrees to train Yuuko and help her unlock her dormant powers. Now, Yuuko must rise up and defeat her generous frenemy to save her family from the terrible grip of poverty. [Written by MAL Rewrite]
The anime series adapts Izumi Ito's 4-koma comedy slice of life manga, which debuted as a guest series in Manga Time Kirara Carat's August and September 2014 issues before beginning regular serialization in the November issue of that year. Houbunsha published the fifth volume last June.
J.C.Staff produced the 12-episode television anime in Summer 2019, roughly adapting the first two volumes. Sentai Filmworks licensed the anime series in North America and simulcast it through HIDIVE. The company will release the show on home video on September 1, which also includes the Machikado Mazoku Mini (The Demon Girl Next Door Minis) short specials.
Seven Seas Entertainment licensed the manga in English this July and plans to ship the first volume on January 26, 2021.
