Via Comic Natalie: a second season of the deliciously evil anime series “The Saga of Tanya the Evil” has been revealed — with a key visual and teaser video dropped to accompany the announcement! The staff from the first season such as director Yutaka Uemura, character designer Yuji Hosogoshi, and screenwriter Kenta Ihara will return, as well as cast members Yuuki Aoi and Saori Hayami.
“The Saga of Tanya the Evil” tells the story of an unnamed salaryman in Japan’s post-Bubble Era, who was murdered by a disgruntled subordinate whom he had fired for poor performance. He was reborn as Tanya Degurechaff, an orphaned girl in an alternate reality’s equivalent of pre-WWI Germany, after he had gloated at an unnamed “god” he mockingly referred to as “Being X” that he did not believe in the afterlife. As Tanya, he uses his ruthless business tactics to try to prove “Being X” wrong as well as carve out a good life for himself in the arena of war.
