Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid S is one of Summer 2021's most popular titles, with a current score of 8.46 on MyAnimeList. This isn't surprising, considering that fans have waited four years for the release of this second season.

The second installment of this fantasy slice of life series by the beloved Kyoto Animation premiered on July 7, 2021. It is adapted from the seinen manga of the same name written by Coolkyousinnjya. It began serialization in 2013 and currently has 10 volumes. It also has numerous manga spin-offs.

It follows the story of Kobayashi, an ordinary office worker. A drunken stroll along the mountains resulted in her encounter with Tohru, a dragon who had a sword stuck on her back. Kobayashi successfully removes the sword and saves her life. To express her gratitude, Tohru has offered to become Kobayashi's maid.

There may even be instances wherein the dub may be better than the original version — but everyone has their own cup of tea, so each to their own.

With that, some fans might be wondering when an English dub for Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid Season 2 will be out.
