Based on the Japanese manga series of the same name written and illustrated by Kei Sasuga, “Domestic Girlfriend” is an animated drama romance series that follows Natsuo Fujii, a 17-year-old aspiring novelist passionately in love with his teacher, Hina Tachibana. . . His life takes an unprecedented turn when he loses his virginity to a high school girl named Rui, unaware that she is Hina’s sister. As if the love triangle wasn’t complicated enough, Natsuo’s father decides to marry Hina and Rui’s mother, making them Natsuo’s half-siblings.
Produced by Diomedéa, the series first aired on January 12, 2019 and quickly garnered critical acclaim for its realistic portrayal of human relationships and complex emotions. The complicated history of romantic relationships, friendship, and youth has gained a decent number of fans around the world, and now people are curious to find out more about ‘Domestic Girlfriend’ season 2. So when will the new season be released? This is what we are going to find out.
Domestic Girlfriend season 2 release date
Season 1 of ‘Domestic Girlfriend’ was released on January 12, 2019 on MBS, TBS, BS-TBS, AT-X, ATV and ended on March 30, 2019. It consists of twelve episodes, each lasting for approximately 24 minutes each. The series launched internationally on Crunchyroll, animelab, and HIDIVE.
As for season 2 of the show, here’s everything we know. Season 1 of the romance drama anime adapted the first eight volumes of Kei Sasuga’s manga series. So far, the mangaka has released around twenty-eight volumes. Hence, from a source material perspective, there is more than enough intrigue to explore for developers to comfortably think of another season.
In addition, another season will give more visibility to Sasuga’s work which will help increase manga sales, which brings us to the next point: the growing popularity. Since the season 1 premiere, the manga has sold an additional 1 million copies, bringing the total to more than 4 million. Given the growth in popularity, it makes sense to capitalize on the growing fan base with a new season of the show.
However, when asked by a fan on Twitter about season 2 of the animated romantic drama series, manga artist Kei Sasuga bluntly replied that there are no plans for the second period (season). His comments appear to be a fatal blow to hopes for another season. Therefore, considering all the aforementioned points, we can conclude that while the manga sales and the fan base of the series have grown over the years, it is unlikely that “Domestic Girlfriend” will return for a new season. .
