In 2015 on many Japanese TV channels the anime Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid aired, a show that is hardly meant for children, because its essence is more suitable for adults. The fact is that the idea of the series is full of sexual overtones of the relationship of young girls, their love and passion. Therefore, it is better for this anime to be watched by adult audience. This format is rather unusual for western audience, but it is quite suitable for oriental authors who are more liberated in matters relating to sex. Anyway, the show has got many fans who are looking forward to the continuation of the project after the first season ended in 2015. Therefore, the main question of the lovers of this anime is as follows: when will Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid season 2 air on any TV channel? Release date of the next part of the series is still unknown, but the show will probably return this year. Its coming will definitely be accepted with joy, so everything which is remained is just waiting for the second season premiere.
There is still no information about when a new episode will air. The first episode was presented on October 10, 2015, and the last part aired on December 26, 2015. The number of episodes is 12.
The main creator of Valkyrie Drive: Mermaid is a Japanese author Hiraku Kaneko. The script is written by screenwriter Yōsuke Kuroda of the same origin.
The studio responsible for the production of this series is Arms, the company making anime. There are a few channels broadcasting the show – Tokyo MX, AT-X, SUN and some others.
