A hilarious parody of the dating sim genre, Romantic Killer was a lot of fun to binge, but it finished way too fast. There are expectations for a second season to come out soon, but since the anime will have to continue the plot on its own because the source material has been completely adapted. Here is everything we currently know about Netflix’s Romantic Killer’s second season. The Japanese romantic comedy anime series Romantic Killer is a Netflix Original and is based on the same-named manga by Wataru Momose. Kazuya Ichikawa is in charge of directing the manga adaptation. Video games are all Anzu Hoshino thinks about and all she wants to do is play them. A wizard from a magical planet appears and coerces Hoshino into taking part in a mission to reverse the population drop in his world, much to her chagrin. All Hoshino wants to do is go home for video games, kittens, and chocolate as she finds herself living out her very own dating sim.
What is the Netflix renewal status of Romantic Killer?
Because the English translation of the manga is now limited to the first volume, we had to look at the raw Japanese scans of the manga to check how much of the source material had been covered in order to read ahead. We can confirm that the Netflix anime adaptation has covered all 38 chapters of the manga. This is not to say that we won’t see more of Romantic Killer on Netflix. The anime ends on the same cliffhanger as the manga, with the information that Anzu’s three favourite things—video games, chocolate, and her cat—have been temporarily returned to her. Anzu will lose all three for good if she is still single by the end of high school. The wizard Kate’s new job is given to Yukana in the anime, which is a significant departure from the manga. Meanwhile, Riri takes off into the sky while informing the viewer that Anzu’s love life is progressing, leaving us with a “to be continued.” Therefore, it appears that the anime will continue even if the manga has ostensibly ended.
There have been no updates on the future of Romantic Killer on Netflix as of this writing. This is hardly surprising given that the anime series has only been accessible on Netflix for less than a week. Anime titles have some of the longest waits for renewal announcements, so fans will have to stay patient to learn more about the future Romantic Killer on Netflix. We’ll also offer hourly viewing stats and top-ten data in the coming weeks. This suggests that if the series has done well globally, we can anticipate it to be renewed.
