Tsukimichi Moonlit Fantasy Season 2 Cast and staff
Let’s break down the details for the upcoming Season 2 of “Tsukimichi: Moonlit Fantasy.”
Scheduled for a January 2024 premiere, J.C. Staff is taking over the animation duties from C2C. Returning to their posts are director Shinji Ishihira, series composer Kenta Ihara, character designer Yukie Suzuki, and music composer Yasuharu Takanashi.
The teaser dropped on July 13, 2023, followed by the full trailer on October 25, 2023. Additionally, season 2 will comprise two back-to-back cours, promising around 24 episodes – a significant bump from the first season’s 12.
In the trailer, we get a glimpse of the main characters. Ai Kakuma voices Hibiki Otonashi, a high school girl summoned to another world, engaging in mythical battles. Chiharu Sawashiro plays Belda North Limia, the young knight of the Kingdom of Limia. Other characters like Tomoe (Ayane Sakura), Mio (Akari Kito), and Knowledge (Kenjiro Tsuda) are also featured in the teaser.
The supporting cast includes Ami Koshimizu, Yuji Murai, Nao Tamura, Ryohei Arai, Mai Nakahara, Sayumi Watanabe, Ami Tsukishiro, and also Natsue in various roles.
For the English dub fans, Monica Rial voices Tomoe, while Kara Edwards takes on Mio. The Japanese cast is reprising their roles, and it’s likely the English dub crew will do the same.
Sticking closely to the light novel, Season 2 adapts Volume 5. It showcases Makoto’s attempts to enroll as a student, leading to comedic incidents. So, get ready for another round of moonlit fantasy, coming your way soon.
Tsukimichi Moonlit Fantasy Plot
Makoto Misumi, your typical high school student leading an unremarkable life, is abruptly transported to another world, tasked with the role of a “hero.” However, any hopes for a warm welcome are dashed as the goddess not only insults him for his differences but also revokes his “hero” title, casting him into the wilderness at the world’s edge.
As he ventures through this unfamiliar landscape, Makoto encounters a myriad of creatures – dragons, spiders, orcs, dwarves, and various non-human groups. His origins from a different world grant him extraordinary magical powers and combat skills, leaving us to ponder how he’ll navigate interactions with these diverse species.
However, mingling with non-human races poses a significant challenge for Makoto. Abandoned by both gods and humanity, he embarks on the task of carving out a new existence in this unfamiliar world. The lingering question remains – can he endure the trials and tribulations of his newfound life, and what awaits him as he attempts to navigate the complexities of this otherworldly journey?
