"Peter Grill and the Philosopher's Time" Anime Gets 2nd Season
The wraparound jacket band on Daisuke Hiyama's ninth Peter Grill and the Philosopher's Time (Peter Grill to Kenja no Jikan) manga volume announced on Thursday that the manga's television anime will have a second season. The staff of the anime will reveal more details for the second season at a later date.
The anime's first season premiered in July 2020. Sentai Filmworks licensed the series for home video and digital release, and HIDIVE and Crunchyroll both streamed the anime as it aired. HIDIVE also streamed an English dub. Sentai Filmworks released the anime on Blu-ray Disc on October 12, and it describes the story:
Peter Grill is the world's strongest fighter, but his ascent to the top came with an unexpected consequence: Women around the world, human and monster alike, want to bear his genetically superior children! Since he's currently engaged to the love of his life, Peter isn't too keen on his sudden popularity, and it will take every ounce of self-control for Peter to keep his hands to himself and his relationship with his paramour in One Piece in the outrageously irreverent Peter Grill and the Philosopher's Time.
Tatsumi directed the anime at Wolfsbane. Nora Mōri wrote the script, and Rui Ishige drew the character designs. Yui Ninomiya performed the opening theme song "Tsuranuite Yūtsu" (Piercing Melancholy) as her character Luvelia Sanctos. Hilcrhyme performed the ending theme song "Yoridokoro" (A Shoulder to Lean On). Shusei's Project performed an insert song titled "Ti amo."
Hiyama launched the manga in Futabasha's Manga Action in July 2017. Seven Seas Entertainment has licensed the manga, and it released the sixth volume on October 19.
