It looks like the new year will be rang in with happy kisses and pretty boys.
Earlier today, news broke that a new Cute High Earth Defense Club (Binan Kōkō Chikyū Bōei-bu) anime project is in the works. The new project, titled Cute High Earth Defense Club Happy Kiss! (Binan Kōkō Chikyū Bōei-bu Happy Kiss!) received an official website, which includes a new visual and the show’s logo. You can check both out below.

Ponycan USA holds the rights to both seasons of Cute High Earth Defense Club, which they describe as:

Just then, the son of the bathouse owner Yumoto Hakone shows up, and as soon as he sees Wombat, he chases it, screaming “Let me fluff you up!”
