P.A. Works is currently working on The Eccentric Family 2 for an unspecified future date. The studio is also producing Sakura Quest for an April 2017 premiere.

The Eccentric Family 2 (Uchōten Kazoku 2), will adapt Tomihiko Morimi’s second novel in the series.

The core staff from the first season will return to work on the series, including director Masayuki Yoshihara and original character designer Kōji Kumeta Kumeta (Sayonara, Zetsubou-sensei). P.A. Works will produce the show’s animation, while Lantis handles the show’s music.

Soichi Masui (Chaika – The Coffin Princess, Scrapped Princess) is directing the project, which features character designs by BunBun (Yuki Yuna Is a Hero, Izetta: The Last Witch). Masahiro Yokotani (Free! – Iwatobi Swim Club, Re:Zero) will supervise the show’s scripts. “Alexandre S. D. Celibidache” is credited with the original concept.

The confirmed cast includes:

  • Yoshino Koharu: Ayaka Nanase
