Note that this is Moyashimon, and not a new Gurren Lagann series. かもすぞ!

Also, it was incredibly hard to find a SFW image for this series. Most of the stuff on Danbooru is of Kei lol...

Series Summary from MangaUpdates (season 1):
Meet Sawaki Tadayasu, the second son of yeast preparation suppliers, who is forced to go to an agricultural university and continue the family business. He has the unique ability to see microbes. He and his friend, Kei, are taken in as students by the fermentation-process obsessed Itsuki-sensei. This manga follows Sawaki as he tries to make his way through university as discreetly as possible…which is almost impossible if you’re as unique as he is.
Kenn's Comment: It's been 5 years since the first series was on air...and boy am I happy to have it back. Science, comedy and awesomeness! One of my favourite series comes back! Hail NoitaminA!! (It's the time slot the series airs in).

Anywho, this one's starting off where the first left off, so this is definitely a series you'll want to watch after getting through the first season. The situation with Kei will definitely need the first season to understand, and going through the first season and learning how the different bacteria look (and their names) will help you get through this one without racking your brain quite as much. かもすぞ!

Also, in the beginning of the trailer. I don't remember Sawaki looking quite that feminine. Maybe it's the 5 year absence, but boy, he and Kei could swap places and I wouldn't notice. Along with the PV, there's also a short or 200 featuring the more popular of the bacteria.
