Romantic Killer is a humorous satire of the dating sim genre. Although it was a lot of fun to binge on, the game ended far too quickly. There are high hopes for the release of a second season in the near future; however, given that the original source material has been extensively altered, the anime will have to carry on the story using its own original ideas.
Here is everything that we know about the upcoming second season of Romantic Killer on Netflix at the moment.
Romantic Killer is a Japanese romantic comedy anime series that is an original production of Netflix and is based on the manga of the same name written by Wataru Momose. Kazuya Ichikawa is the one tasked with directing the film version of the manga.
Anzu Hoshino is completely consumed by her obsession with video games, and she has no other interests or hobbies. She is taken aback when a sorcerer from a magical realm suddenly appears and blackmails Hoshino into participating in a mission to halt the decline in population that is occurring in his world.
Hoshino, who is currently participating in her very own dating simulation, is mainly interested in going home so that she may eat chocolate, play video games, and pet kitties.
What is the Netflix Renewal Status for Romantic Killer?
When this article was created, there had been no announcements made by Netflix regarding their plans for the future of the Romantic Killer series. This shouldn’t come as much of a shock considering that the anime series has been streamable on Netflix for a little over a week at most at this point.
Fans of Romantic Killer on Netflix will have to be patient if they want to learn more about the show’s plans for the future. Anime programmes are among the originals that have not been renewed for the longest period of time in recent memory.
In the following couple of weeks, we will also have the data for the top ten as well as the number of viewers for each hour. This indicates that we should anticipate the show’s renewal if it has been successful in a number of countries throughout the world.
Do We Need a Second Season of Romantic Killer?
We had to look at images of the original Japanese manga in order to determine how much of the original source material had been covered in the manga adaptation because the English edition of the manga is only up to the first volume. We are able to verify that the anime adaptation that is available on Netflix covers all 38 chapters of the manga.
However, this does not rule out the possibility that Netflix would add additional episodes of Romantic Killer in the future.
Both the manga and the anime come to a conclusion with the same shocking twist: Anzu’s three most treasured possessions—video games, chocolate, and her cat—have been brought back to her temporarily. If Anzu is still looking for a partner when she graduates from high school, she will be permanently cut off from all three of them.
The most notable deviation from the source material that can be found in both the manga and the anime is that in the former, the wizard Kate is given Yukana as her new employment. In the manga, Riri soars into the skies and informs us that Anzu’s love life is progressing, and then she tells us that the story is “to be continued.”
Who Are the Cast Members of Romantic Killer?
Only Rie Takahashi and Mikako Komatsu have been cast for a role in Romantic Killer as of yet. Takahashi will provide the voice for Anzu Hoshino, and Komatsu will play the role of Riri, the wizard.
Fans of the isekai anime KonoSuba and RE: Zero will remember Rie Takahashi as the actress who provided the voice of the Megumin and Emilia in those series.
Mikako Komatsu is the voice of Rebecca Bluegarden in Eden’s Zero, Senkuu in Dr. Stone, and Maki Zenin in Jujutsu Kaisen.
