The Eccentric Family 2 is the sequel series to the 2013 TV anime, The Eccentric Family, which is based on the novel of the same name by Tomihiko Morimi (The Tatami Galaxy). Like the earlier TV series, The Eccentric Family 2 is directed by Masayuki Yoshihara and features animation by P.A. Works.
In The Eccentric Family 2, the Shimogamo family are a carefree group of tanuki who transform and blend in with the human world. Once again their lives are thrown into chaos when the estranged son of their tengu friend, Professor Akadama, returns home after a century-long absence and begins causing trouble in both tanuki and tengu society.
