A second season for Cute High Earth Defense Club Love! has been confirmed. The first season of Cute High Earth Defense Club LOVE! went on air in Winter 2015. The story follows the members of the Earth Defense Club: Yumoto Hakone (Kazutomi Yamamoto), En Yufuin (Yuichirou Umehara), Atsushi Kinugawa (Kotaro Nishiyama), Io Naruko (Yusuke Shirai) and Ryu Zao (Toshiki Masuda) in their daily activities. The five of them, with a trusty pink wombat by their side, transform into the Battle Lovers, the heirs to the throne of love, who are tasked with saving the world from monsters. Of course, they do get their due time off – with a nice visit to the hot springs after all their work is done.
