Wotakoi: Love is Hard for Otaku was adapted into an anime in 2018 and got a live-action film adaptation in 2020. Since then, fans of the romantic comedy anime have been waiting for a sequel, so will Wotakoi ever get a Season 2?
Originally, Wotakoi was a Japanese web manga series by Fujita. It was first published in 2014 on Pixiv. It was then serialized in Comic Pool in 2015 before the manga was published in print the same year.
The anime had 11 episodes that aired on Fuji TV, while those outside Japan are able to stream Wotakoi on Amazon Prime Video.
Will Wotakoi: Love is Hard for Otaku Ever Get a Season 2?
There are no announcements yet from A-1 Pictures regarding a potential Season 2.
It has been four years since Season 1 ended, and with the ongoing pandemic, it might take time before an opportunity presents itself if A-1 Pictures or any studio decides to produce the sequel.
As for the content, Season 1 of Wotakoi covered the first four volumes of the manga, which leaves Volumes 5 to 8 to be adapted, if ever.
But if we were to speculate, fans of the romcom series should not entirely lose hope. If the demand continues to remain high, there might be a chance for a studio to create a sequel.
For context, Wotakoi received a rating of 4.8 out of 5 on Amazon Prime. Moreover, according to Crunchyroll, over 10 million copies of Wotakoi were released in August 2020, proving the demand for the manga and the anime.
In the meantime, interested anime viewers can read the manga to find out how the story ends.
