Director Okubo said that the staff was working hard to create an anime that will be enjoyed by everyone.
“The second season of Valkyrie of the Apocalypse has been waiting for you! A fierce battle in the heavenly realm between Hanzoku and Shaka, born from their pre-life history and conflicts! Confrontation in the nightlife of London. A battle of wills between men in the ring. Friendship and trust born in battle. The feelings of the friends who watch over them. There is a lot to see in this show! Our staff is working hard to create animation that will be enjoyed by everyone,” Okubo’s comment read.
Producer Jun Urushiyama gave his comments on the second season of the anime:
“It was the first time for me to work with Director Okubo during the first season. I think we were exploring each other’s ideas as we created the work. However, this is the second season, and we now have a better understanding of how the director would like us to create the pictures he wants. We are making adjustments to realize the director’s points of particular interest. I hope you will pay attention to the overall atmosphere and action on the screen in the second season.”
