Two anime entries from San Francisco’s Viz Media have been renewed for second seasons on Cartoon Network’s Toonami Jetstream Saturday night block.

Prince of Tennis, based on a manga series of the same name, follows the life of high school tennis star Ryoma Echizen as he faces opponents both on and off the court. A DVD box set of the show is set for release on April 24.

Ma has also been greenlit for a second run. The action-adventure series features a 14-year-old protagonist named Ginta, who is just your average kid struggling with the trials and tribulations of impending adolescence. But it wouldn’t be anime without a little adventure, so one day a supernatural figure arrives and takes Ginta to a dream world, where he must battle the forces of evil in an epic saga.
