The returning cast includes Mutsumi Tamura as Kobayashi, Yūki Kuwahara as Tohru, Maria Naganawa as Kanna, Yūki Takada as Elma, Minami Takahashi as Lucoa, Daisuke Ono as Fafnir, Yūichi Nakamura as Makoto Takiya, Emiri Katō as Riko Saikawa, Yuko Goto as Georgie, and Kaori Ishihara as Shōta Magatsuchi.
Crunchyroll describes the anime as follows:
The wacky Dragon Maid is back again! A strange turn of events leads the Dragon, Tohru, to work as Miss Kobayashi’s maid. She occasionally (that’s a lie, she often) causes trouble for her beloved Miss Kobayashi while blending into human society and splendidly (that’s a lie, only mediocrely) carrying out her maid duties.
Her fellow dragons, Kanna, Lucoa, Fafnir, and Elma all find their own places to fit in as well and enjoy interspecies interactions with the humans. Yet while they’re all enjoying that laid-back and occasionally turbulent [life], the threat of a new Dragon swoops down upon Miss Kobayashi
Coolkyoushinja launched the ongoing manga in 2013 and it has inspired several spin-off manga. The anime’s first season premiered in 2017 and it was highly successful.
Madly in love with anime and football...... it's disturbing.
