Full Story
K-On Series 2

Sentai have stated that US dubbing company Bang Zoom! Entertainment will be producing the English dub. This would indicate that the original cast from the dub created by Bandai Entertainment for the first season which Otaku News has reviewed here and here, will be used again. This however, is subject to change.

Press release as follows:

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

SENTAI FILMWORKS LICENSES
"K-ON! Season 2"


HOUSTON, February 20, 2012- Sentai Filmworks is delighted to announce the licensing of K-ON! Season 2, the continuing exploits of the Light Music Club of Sakuragaoka Girl's High. The creative staff from K-ON! returns for another 26 episodes plus an OVA of a rocking good time, featuring character designs by Yukiko Horiguchi (Lucky Star) and music by Hajime Hyakkoku (Ichigo 100%). On top of their proven performance, Sentai Filmworks' release will feature an electric dub by Bang Zoom! Entertainment.


For two full years, Yui, Mio, Ritsu and Tsumugi have worked together to keep Sakuragaoka Girl's High School's struggling Light Music Club alive, and along the way they've begun to build a reputation as real rock musicians, especially since the previous year's addition of underclassman rhythm guitarist Azusa!! But as a new school year begins, there are new and scary challenges ahead. With four fifths of the club graduating at the end of the year, replacement members have to be recruited. There are college exams to prepare for. There are colleges to choose. And there are friends to prepare to say goodbye to. But no matter what happens, they'll have their faculty adviser and secret former Death Metal guitar/vocalist Sawako Yamada there to help them in her own unusual way, especially since she's now their homeroom teacher as well!! And most of all, they'll have each other. Because the group of amateur musicians who barely knew each other has become much more than just a band, and by the time this school year is over, they're going to achieve something so amazing it requires multiple exclamation marks!! Get ready to be blown away as the girls from K-ON! rock on!!

K-ON! Season 2 will be available on DVD & BD later this year.
