It's right smack in the middle of the official page... A little google can go a long way...
Thank you. :)

In reality Goranger went for two years so you could see that as two seasons.

How the bloody hell did I forget to comment on this bit of news?

My reaction when the news was announced: YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! YES! *continues saying yes all day long*

I seriously hope I get my new computer before the 2nd season starts, I do NOT want to miss this!

I'm just here for the free enetron but I am excited that they are doing a second season for well, any season really.
After watching Gokaiger I started watching Super Sentai and hoped they might do a second season to give them a season on their own without the past season powers. (Silver was just a fun character to watch for me)
I'll have to watch some Akibaranger as I know little about it but the fact it has a 2nd season is exciting on its own.
I hope they do this for other seasons though not too often.
Then again they've done just about every theme under the sun by now right?
This might give them a chance to find some more unique ideas.

But ya, sounds all good to me can't wait....
I mean...
I'm just here for the free enertron though

Someone's gotta translate the Akibaranger Season 2 announcement!!!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=pl ... tAhGQXU3UY

All I gathered from it (and by it I mean the first half) was that Akagi came to deliver a package (an MMZ-01) and got a call from Saburo Hatte that Akibaranger got a second season!

...this'll be canon to the series, right?

What's the context to that announcement? Was it convened just for Akibaranger S2? Or some larger Toei event?

I'm not sure, I saw the youtube link from 2chan.

Let's see

Looks like there was a Super Hero Festival on January 11 and 12 at the Tokyo International Forum.

Thanks Takenoko.:)

I have to say, for a show that's explicitly not for kids, aired at 1am in the morning, and whose tag line is even about the show not being for kids, the fact that they were advertising it at an event that seemed to be full of kids confounds my western sensibilities.

It's not like they had Malshiina out on stage. Although she was in that classroom full of kids with her usual get up. Hmmm

Garo also is not for kids, and yet it still has toys. also, it's not like kids have no idea what Akibaranger is. i knew about south park when i was a kid even tough i did not know what it was exactly about or even watched.

The Garo toys are explicitly aimed at adults though. There's no soft plush toys or anything, it's all detailed figures and accessories that are much more expensive and much easier to break.
