The second season of the harem comedy ‘Peter Grill’ titled ‘Peter Grill and the Philosopher’s Time: Super Extra’ has found a new streaming home with HiDive, who will release it to a North American audience.
“You’re reading this post because you like risqué comedies, and Peter Grill and the Philosopher’s Time: Super Extra (Peter Grill to Kenja no Jikan: Super Extra) has that in spades. It’s even in the title of the 2nd season if you’re into acronyms,” HiDive said on their website.
Directed by Tatsumi, Wolfsbane animation studio produced the first season of the show which featured thirteen short episodes. Nora Mōri works on the show as a writer with Rui Ishige handling character design. Animation Studio Seven is working on the second season production as well.
The anime is based on a manga written and illustrated by Daisuke Hiyama. It has been published by the Tokyo-based company Futabasha for their magazine ‘Monthly Action’ since 2017. Seven Seas Entertainment produces the volumes in North America.

AniList describes the synopsis as follows,
“Peter Grill is back and ready for action! Between quelling a goblin incursion, improving trade negotiations with the dwarves and placating a watchful sister who might just go berserk to keep him in line, Peter has his work cut out for him. He’s the most sought-after hero in the land…and that’s before counting the myriad woman interested in his “other” talents. It will take every last scrap of Peter’s willpower to keep his focus on heroing in another raunchy season of Peter Grill and the Philosopher’s Time – Super Extra!”
The manga and anime spun off a mobile RPG game based on the series titled ‘Pītā Guriru to Kenja no Jikan Teisō no Mamoribito’ and known in English as ‘Peter Grill and the Philosopher’s Time – Defender of Virtue.’
