The official website of the anime series adapting Kenjirou Hata's Tonikaku Kawaii (Fly Me to the Moon) manga announced a second anime season and a new episode on Saturday. The website also revealed an announcement promo and teaser visual (pictured).
Hata began the romantic comedy manga in Weekly Shounen Sunday in February 2018, approximately ten months after ending Hayate no Gotoku! (Hayate The Combat Butler) in the same magazine. Shogakukan shipped the 17th volume on August 18. Tonikaku Kawaii has a cumulative 3.4 million copies of its volumes in circulation.
The first season aired in 12 episodes in Fall 2020, roughly adapting the first five volumes. Hiroshi Ikehata (Mahoujin Guruguru (2017)) directed the anime at Seven Arcs, with Kazuho Hyoudou (ReLIFE) in charge of the series composition. Crunchyroll simulcast the anime with subtitles and subsequently began streaming dubbed versions in multiple languages, including English, German, French, Portuguese, Spanish, and Russian.
Warner Bros. Japan released the Tonikaku Kawaii: SNS (Tonikawa: Over the Moon For You - SNS) original video anime (OVA) on August 18. Crunchyroll began streaming the OVA the same day with subtitles.
VIZ Media licensed the manga in English last February and published the seventh volume on September 14. The eighth volume is scheduled for release on November 9.
Nasa Yuzaki is determined to leave his name in the history books. Ranking first in the national mock exam and aiming for a distinguished high school, he is certain that he has his whole life mapped out. However, fate is a fickle mistress. On his way home one snowy evening, Nasa's eyes fall upon a peerless beauty across the street. Bewitched, Nasa tries to approach her—only to get blindsided by an oncoming truck.
Thankfully, his life is spared due to the girl's swift action. Bleeding by the side of an ambulance, he watches as the girl walks away under the moonlight—reminiscent of Princess Kaguya leaving for the moon. Refusing to let this chance meeting end, he forces his crippled body to chase after her and asks her out. Surprised by his foolhardiness and pure resolve, the girl accepts his confession under a single condition: they can only be together if he marries her! [Written by MAL Rewrite]
