March comes in like a lion

So, apparently March comes in like a lion will come back in March. How fitting.

Earlier today, the official March comes in like a lion anime’s Twitter account announced that the series is going on a hiatus. Due to the 2018 PyeongChang Olympic Winter Games, the series will not be aired on February 10, 17, and 24.

The show will return to Japanese TV on March 3, with episode 39.

March comes in like a lion’s second season saw several staffers returning at studio SHAFT. Akiyuki Shinbo (Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Monogatari series) will return to the director’s chair, while Nobuhiro Sugiyama (Nisekoi, Arakawa Under the Bridge) reprises his role as character designer.

Other confirmed crew members include:

  • Art Director: Seiki Tamura
  • Art Setting Designer: Yasuhiro Nakura
  • Sound Director: Toshiki Kameyama
  • Composer: Yukari Hashimoto

Crunchyroll describes the new season as:

Rei Kiriyama lost his family in an accident during his childhood, and is now a seventeen-year-old professional shogi player, still burdened by a profound sense of loneliness. One day, Rei, who lives alone in downtown Tokyo, meets three sisters named Akari, Hinata, and Momo, and little by little, he starts to change… This is a gentle tale about various people recovering that “something” that they’ve lost, and it’s also about battle.

Aniplex of America currently holds the domestic rights to March Comes in Like a Lion.
