Based on the same-named Japanese manga series written and drawn by Kei Sasuga, ‘Domestic Girlfriend’ is a romance-drama anime series about a 17-year-old aspiring writer named Natsuo Fujii who is deeply in love with his teacher, Hina Tachibana.
When he loses his virginity to a high school student named Rui, he doesn’t know that she is Hina’s sister. This changes his life in a way that no one has ever seen before.
As if the love triangle wasn’t complicated enough, Natsuo’s father chose to marry Hina and Rui’s mother, making them Natsuo’s step-siblings.
The first episode of the show, which was made by Diomedéa and came out on January 12, 2019, was quickly praised by critics for its realistic portrayal of complicated human relationships and feelings.
People from all over the world like the difficult story about love, friendship, and being young, and now they want to know more about ‘Domestic Girlfriend’ season 2.
So, when does the next season come out?
Let’s find out.
Official Announcements And Release Date Of Domestic Girlfriend Season 2
The last episode of season 1 of Domestic Girlfriend aired on March 31, 2019, and we haven’t heard much from the show’s creator or company in close to three months.
Season 2 hasn’t been announced or given a release date, which is a shame. One of Sasuga’s fans asked him on Twitter if he has plans for a second season.
When asked this question, he said, “I have no plans for a second season.” This is not a good answer. It’s disappointing to hear, but if profits, popularity, and other things are good, maybe someone else would be ready to take it.
So, let’s go and see what we have.
Domestic Girlfriend Season 2 Release Date
The first season of “Domestic Girlfriend” started on MBS, TBS, BS-TBS, AT-X, and ATV on January 12, 2019, and ended on March 30, 2019.
There are twelve shows, and each one lasts about 24 minutes. The series was made available to people all over the world on Crunchyroll, Animelab, and HIDIVE.
Here is everything we know about the second season of the show. The first eight books of Kei Sasuga’s manga were turned into the first season of the romantic-drama anime show.
Up to this point, the manga artist has put out about 28 books. From the source material’s point of view, there are more than enough plots for the creators to explore, so they can easily make another season.
Also, another season will give Sasuga’s work more publicity, which will help sell even more manga, which brings us to our next point: Sasuga’s work is getting more and more popular.
Since season 1 came out, another million books of the manga have been sold, bringing the total to well over 4 million.
Since the show is getting more and more famous, it makes sense to make another season so that they can make money off of the growing number of fans.
But when a fan on Twitter asked the manga artist Kei Sasuga about season 2 of the romantic-drama anime series, he told the fan straight out that there are no plans for a second term. Her words seem to put an end to the hopes for another season.
Taking everything into account, we can say that “Domestic Girlfriend” isn’t likely to come back for another season, even though manga sales and the number of people who like the show have grown over time.

But how many books did the first season of Domestic Girlfriend cover? Did it use up all the information it could find? Is there enough left to make an entirely new sequel?
Even though there haven’t been any public announcements yet, this is a big plus for us. Only 8 books of the manga have been shown in Season 1 of Domestic Girlfriend.
So, the source material has not been used up. Let’s say that the second season of the anime covers the same number of books as the first season, which is 8.
Still, there is more than enough content for 2 more seasons of the series. There are 20 more discs that haven’t been used yet.
We’ve looked at everything, and everything is in our favor except for social media exposure and sales.
The best part is that we don’t have to think about the source material. There are a lot of them. So, we can expect to hear about the follow-up at the end of 2023 or the beginning of 2024.
There’s no need to worry, because anime usually comes out 3–4 years after the real world. Let’s hope things go well.
