GENEON ENTERTAINMENT ACQUIRES DISTRIBUTION RIGHTS TO THE SECOND SEASON OF THE FAN-FAVORITE PROPERTY
Picking Up At The First Season’s Thrilling Cliffhanger, Part Two Journeys Farther Into One Boy’s Comedic Adventures Through The Realm Of Fantasy
Geneon Entertainment, a leader in introducing anime to the United States, announced today that it has acquired the North American merchandising, television and home entertainment rights to the second season of the popular anime series from Sogovision Inc., Kyo Kara Maoh! God (?) Save Our King!. A comic adventure based on the best-selling Japanese novels (over 2 million copies sold), the first season of Kyo Kara Maoh! God (?) Save Our King! quickly became a fan favorite, and is still gaining popularity due to its hilarious and absurdist take on the fantasy genre, told through the eyes of an average high school student who becomes ruler of the Great Demon Kingdom… after being flushed down the toilet by bullies. Picking up at the first season’s nail-biting cliffhanger, the second season of Kyo Kara Maoh! God (?) Save Our King! follows the unlikely king on his continuing journey through the world of fantasy. The second season’s 39 episodes will begin releasing on DVD in November, timed for a smooth continuation from the first season, the final volume of which is due September 5 from Geneon Entertainment.
“Fans have really taken to Yuri’s comic adventures in the Great Demon Kingdom,” said
said Mark Roche, VP of Marketing & Publicity, Geneon Entertainment. “The series’ clever story line, compelling characters and consistent humor have provided a full season’s worth of offbeat entertainment, and the second season promises to get even darker, deeper and more hilarious.”
At the end of the first season, Yuri finally finds Conrad, but he is with Big Cimaron, a human country ruled by a greedy king. Yuri is shocked, but he has to continue his duty as a Demon King. The Part Two storyline will focus on Yuri and his team’s effort to find and collect all the Four Forbidden Boxes in which the evil Originator had been sealed.
