Engage Kiss Season 2: Renewed or Cancelled?

September 26, 2022

Written by Fumiaki Maruto, the anime Engage Kiss is a romantic comedy about Shuu Ogata, a private military company owner living in Bayron City – a metropolis known for offering its residents a comfortable and luxurious lifestyle thanks to a newfound energy source . But despite his lucrative private business, the young demon slayer struggles to make ends meet and needs the help of his demonic partner, Kisara, to secure the finances. Not only do the duo work together to protect the town from demons, but they also run the household chores together.

Unfortunately, the fight against the demons has a high personal price, which Shuu and Kisara only realize very late. Produced by A-1 Pictures, the series is set to serve as inspiration for a mobile game titled Engage Kill. Despite the mixed reviews from critics, fans of the series are eager to learn more about the show’s return after Season 1 concludes. If you’re curious, we’ve got you covered.

Engage Kiss Season 2 Release Date

‘Engage Kiss’ season 1 was released on July 3, 2022 and ended almost three months later on September 25, 2022. The rom-com series consists of thirteen episodes with a running time of around 24 minutes each.

If you’re a fan of the series and are eagerly awaiting its return, then you definitely have a long wait ahead of you. Studio A-1 Pictures has not yet officially renewed the anime. However, there is speculation online that we could get an update on this sometime in January 2023. But even if those speculations turn out to be true, Engage Kiss Season 2 isn’t coming anytime soon. The series was not well received internationally and online ratings on various platforms were only average.

So ultimately, it would be crucial that the series did well domestically. If that’s the case, the other reason for the series’ further delay is Studio A-1 Pictures’ multiple signing in 2023 as it already has a very busy next year. After that, A-1 Pictures will most likely prioritize ‘Lycoris Recoil’, another action comedy anime from the summer anime series that has fared far better than ‘Engage Kiss’.

While the show’s ratings were average, they’re not bad enough to warrant cancellation, so fans can still hope for a return. The season 1 finale is titled the Unresolved Grand Finale, indicating the creators’ obvious desire to continue the story. But even if the series is renewed in the coming months, Studio A-1 Pictures’ busy schedule will push the release into the future as mentioned above. Considering all of the above factors, Engage Kiss Season 2 will most likely premiere sometime in late 2024 or early 2025.

Engage Kiss Season 2 Plot: What can it be about?

In the season 1 finale, Kisara, Ayano, Shuu, and Sharon try to capture Kanna alive, who is completely insane. Although Kisara is doing her best, the loss of her memories has left a deep mark on her. But she decides to trust Shuu with her life, and eventually Kisara alone manages to eliminate Kanna. While Shuu finds his sister under the rubble, she goes into town to fight the demons.

Kanna is then trapped on the bottom floor of City Hall while damage control begins in the city. Later that night, Shuu takes Kisara to his apartment, where the duo begin kissing. But Kisara soon realizes that they are not alone. It turns out that Kanna ran away from City Hall again. Soon after, Ayano also comes to the apartment to look for her and a friendly fight between the trio ensues while Shuu looks on helplessly.

Hopefully Season 2 will see viewers learn more about the demon world and the reason why Kanna is the gateway between the two worlds may finally be revealed. Also, it is expected that Kisara will fight more to get her memories back. However, their bond with Shuu is likely to grow even stronger despite the challenges they face. Ayano and Sharon, who are an integral part of Shuu’s small group, will also be given more prominence in the coming season.
