You say you want a revolutio~!

Earlier today, the official Concrete Revolutio website revealed that Kazuki Nakashima (Kill la Kill, Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann) signed on to the writing team for the show’s second season. Nakashima joins Gen Urobuchi (Psycho-Pass, Puella Magi Madoka Magica) and Masaki Tsuji (Urusei Yatsura, Doraemon), who were previously confirmed to be working on the project.

The site also updated with a 15-second promotional video, which confirms Concrete Revolutio‘s return to Japanese TV in April 2016. The video also reveals the final title for the new season: Concrete Revolutio ~superman fantasy ~.

Concrete Revolutio began airing on October 4, 2015. The series is being directed by Seiji Mizushima (Fullmetal Alchemist, Mobile Suit Gundam 00) at studio Bones. Yoshiyuki Ito is providing the show’s character designs, while Shou Aikawa (Fullmetal Alchemist, Martian Successor Nadesico) tackles series composition.

Earlier this month, Daisuki revealed that a second season of Concrete Revolutio is in the works. Shortly afterwards, the official Concrete Revolutio Twitter account announced that Urobuchi and Tsuji were tapped to write scripts for the series.

FUNimation describes the series as follows:

What if superhumans were real? Even better, what if every fabled superhuman existed at the same time, in the same place? Titans from outer space, life forms from a mystical world, phantoms and goblins from ancient times, cyborgs created by scientists, relics that rose out of the ruins of ancient civilizations. In another Japan, it’s not just a question of “what if”—it’s a reality. Some of the superhumans choose to keep their identities a secret, while others bask in their superhuman fame. Jiro Hitoyoshi, member of the Superhuman Bureau, keeps track of their doings.
