Domestic Girlfriend is a popular anime series that aired in 2018. Now fans of the show are waiting for Domestic Girlfriend season 2.
Domestic Girlfriend, also known as Domestic na Kanojo, is a Japanese anime series by studio Diomedea. The anime show is based on the manga series written by Kei Sasuga.
The first season of the show aired between January and March 2019 with 12 episodes. The series was licensed by Crunchyroll and became quite popular among viewers.
Here’s everything we know so far regarding season 2 of Domestic Girlfriend.
Will There Be Domestic Girlfriend Season 2?
Sadly, there is no official announcement regarding season 2 of Domestic Girlfriend. The last episode of season 1 aired in 2019, and since then the studio and the illustrator of the manga have not confirmed the renewal of the show.
There is no news regarding the renewal of the show on Twitter, the official website of the anime, and other social media handles. This is surprising, as the show and the manga are very popular among viewers both in Asia and the West.
Most of the time anime series get renewed for another season when the manga is continuing. The anime TV show serves as an advertisement for the original manga. In the case of Domestic Girlfriend, the manga finished in 2020.
In 2020, a fan asked Kei Sasuga, the author of the manga about the second season. Sasuga replied by saying that there are no plans for season 2, thus reducing the hope for another season.
However, even after the comment, there has been no official confirmation from the Studio regarding their decision for season 2. In terms of hype and reception from the fans, the romance anime is a popular one.
There is plenty of anime that are still waiting to get renewed like Maid Sama, Great Pretender, and Psychic Princess.
Domestic Girlfriend Season 2 Release Date
At the time of writing, there is no official confirmation regarding Domestic Girlfriend season 2. The show has not been renewed for season 2, so there is no release date.
One of the main reasons for the sudden break in the anime industry was the pandemic after which many anime are still waiting for renewal. In 2019, Studio Diomedea had to shut down all work, and as a result the author also took a small break from work.
After the manga wrapped up in 2020, the author took to Twitter to interact with fans and said that there are no plans for making season 2 of the show. This is a huge red flag for the anime.
Despite that, the anime has a huge fanbase and fan following. On social media platforms like Twitter, you can still see people demanding season 2 of the anime. Even if the author says there are no plans, we might still get another season considering the demand from fans.
What Are the Chances of Domestic Girlfriend Season 2 Happening?
There are a lot of factors that determine the renewal status of the show like the source material, popularity, and sales. If we look at the source material, the anime is adapted from the original manga.
The manga series started publishing in 2014 and ended in 2020 with a total of 28 volumes. The first season of the show covered volumes 1-8 of the manga. It means there is plenty of source material left for season 2 and a third season as well.
However, the anime series is mostly produced to support manga sales. As the manga has finished, chances for season 2 are very low.
Popularity of Domestic Girlfriend
Domestic Girlfriend is a popular anime with an audience score of 6.6 on MyAnimeList, and a popularity rating of #260. Similarly, on IMDB, the show has a rating of 6.8. It was also nominated for Crunchyroll Anime Awards.
According to fans, the show is absolutely wonderful. The romantic comedy-drama series revolves around well-built characters and it’s one of the few shows with no plot holes.
Fans of the manga are of the view that the anime seemed to be rushed in some scenes, especially toward the end. That is given as the show only had 12 episodes and it used 8 volumes of the manga.
According to some, the show is addicting from the start and has a heart-touching story. Because of these factors, fans are still waiting for season 2.
What is the Expected Plot of Domestic Girlfriend Season 2?
Even though fans love the anime, fans are not happy about how it was given an abrupt ending. Natsuo and Hina’s relationship was revealed as she took all the responsibility on her shoulder to protect Natsuo.
Natsuo takes refuge in writing as it helps him move on. Rui, on the other hand, starts getting closer to Natsuo, as Hina’s out of the picture. Season 2 will pick from there.
Rina is now working as a chef and is in a relationship with Natsuo, but she’s still unhappy because of her love for Hina. Season 2 will show if she will keep being Natsuo’s girlfriend, or will the infidelity rear its head.
