Season 2 of In/Spectre anime revealed a new, main trailer ahead of January 8 premiere. Studio Brain’s Base is returning to animate the sequel. The anime was originally scheduled for October 2022 release, but was delayed to January 2023. The trailer also revealed theme songs:
- Opening: Kanoerana – “Yotogibanashi”
- Ending: Mamoru Miyano – “Invincible Love”
Mayumi Sako is joining the cast of the anime as Rikka Sakuragawa. The most recent key visual was revealed in September of this year. Brain’s Base animated the first season of the anime, which aired in Winter 2020 and had 12 episodes. Crunchyroll co-produced the anime. Although the light novel came out first (2011), the anime is based on a manga adaptation (2015). Kyo Shirodaira authored the story, while Chasiba Katase did the manga art.
Kodansha licensed the manga in English and described the plot as:
Both touched by spirits called yokai, Kotoko and Kuro have gained unique superhuman powers. But to gain her powers Kotoko has given up an eye and a leg, and Kuro’s personal life is in shambles. So when Kotoko suggests they team up to deal with renegades from the spirit world, Kuro doesn’t have many other choices, but Kotoko might just have a few ulterior motives…
Mamoru Miyano and Akari Kitou voiced the main duo, Kurou and Kotoko, respectively. Both are returning for the second season.
