The super supreme second life starts!
After teasing everyone over the last three days, the official Twitter account for the Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid TV anime announced that season two of the hit Kyoto Animation series, which is being titled Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid S, will be returning in 2021, with Kyoto Animation returning as the production studio! Two new visuals were released for the upcoming season, a normal version and a socially distancing version, alongside a full refresh of the website.

It hasn't been announced who will be the lead staff in Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid S – after the passing of the director of the first season Yasuhiro Takemoto in the arson attack on Kyoto Animation in July 2019 – or when the season will air in 2021, but we're excited to see more of Tohru, Kobayashi, and the rest of the gang, as well as the return of Kyoto Animation!
The first season of Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid aired from January to April 2017 and is streaming on Crunchyroll, who describes the series as such:
Miss Kobayashi is your average office worker who lives a boring life, alone in her small apartment–until she saves the life of a female dragon in distress. The dragon, named Tohru, has the ability to magically transform into an adorable human girl (albeit with horns and a long tail!), who will do anything to pay off her debt of gratitude, whether Miss Kobayashi likes it or not. With a very persistent and amorous dragon as a roommate, nothing comes easy, and Miss Kobayashi’s normal life is about to go off the deep end!
