Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear has revealed the preview and visual for the upcoming season 2. The sequel will be titled Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear Punch! and Studio EMT will be returning to animate the series, which is set to premiere in April 2023.
The first season of Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear premiered in October 2020 and had a total of 12 episodes. Yuu Nobuta directed the anime with Takashi Aoshima supervising the scripts. Yuki Nakano designed the characters while Shigeo Komori composed the music. The main cast includes Maki Kawase as Yuna and Azumi Waki as Fina. Right after the first season concluded, the series announced a sequel.
Kuma Kuma Kuma Bear anime is based on the light novel series written by Kumanano and illustrated by 029. It began its serialization on the website Shosetsuka ni Naro in 2014. Shufu to Seikatsu Sha later acquired it in 2015 and has currently 19 volumes in circulation under their PASH! Books imprint.
Seven Seas Entertainment is publishing the series in English and describes it as:
Fifteen-year-old Yuna prefers staying home and obsessively playing her favorite VRMMO to doing anything else, including going to school. When a strange new update gives her a one-of-a-kind bear outfit that comes with overpowered abilities, Yuna is torn: the outfit is unbearably cute, but too embarrassing to wear in-game. But then she suddenly finds herself transported to a world like the game, facing down monsters and magic for real, and the bear suit becomes the best weapon she has!
