Dakaretai Otoko 1-i ni Odosarete Imasu or DAKAICHI (literally meaning “The Most Huggable Man Has Threatened Me”, and also known as DAKAICHI -I’m being harassed by the sexiest man of he year-) is a romantic anime television series which is based on a yaoi (homoerotic) manga series of the same name. Written and illustrated by Hashigo Sakurabi, the manga series was first published on July 31, 2014 and new chapters are being published to this day. Four years after the initial publication of the manga series, a Japanese anime studio called CloverWorks announced plans to adapt the manga into an anime television series and Season 1 of Dakaretai Otoko 1-i ni Odosarete Imasu. first made its way to viewers’ screens on October 6, 2018. It was an immediate hit among fans of the manga series and new viewers alike, and since then, fans have been waiting to hear news on a second season. Here’s everything we know about Season 2 of Dakaretai Otoko 1-i ni Odosarete Imasu. thus far.

Dakaretai Otoko Ichii Seiyuu Season 2 Release Date: When will it premiere?

Dakaretai Otoko Ichii Seiyuu season 1, consisting of 13 episodes, premiered on October 6, 2018 and ran till December 29 of the same year. However, in spite of the show’s popularity, CloverWorks is yet to announce a second season.

That being said, there’s no reason to get worried just yet. Anime shows sometimes take five years to renew, and hence, there’s plenty of time for CloverWorks to announce a second season. Further, since new chapters of the manga series are still being published, there should be no dearth of source material for a new season. Given this fact, we think there’s a pretty decent chance of Dakaretai Otoko Ichii Seiyuu. being renewed for a second season. If that happens, our best guess is that Dakaretai Otoko Ichii Seiyuu season 2 release date could be sometime in 2021.  We’re keeping our ears open for news on Season 2 of Dakaretai Otoko Ichii Seiyuu, and we’ll update this section as soon as we hear something reliable.
