There’s a lot of stigma around Ecchi anime, and rightfully so. However, every once in a while, an Ecchi anime like ‘Uzaki-chan wa Asobitai!’ comes along and changes everyone’s opinion about the genre. At its core, the anime offers nothing but relentless fanservice comedy. But what makes it a notch better than most other Ecchi anime is its well-defined storyline and lovable characters. If like us, you are impressed by this slice of life comedy series, and you’re looking forward to its next season, we have some good news for you in the next section.

Uzaki-chan wa Asobitai! Season 2 Release Date: When will it premiere?

‘Uzaki-chan wa Asobitai!’ season 1 premiered on July 10, 2020. With a total of 12 episodes, it finished airing on September 25, 2020. Like most Ecchi anime out there, ‘Uzaki-chan wa Asobitai!’ never takes itself too seriously. But it still manages to entertain you with its situational comedy and well-written characters. That’s probably the reason why, unlike most typical Ecchi anime, ‘Uzaki-chan wa Asobitai!’ has fairly average ratings on most platforms.

For those who have been following ‘Uzaki-chan Wants to Hang Out!’, the good news is that its second season has been confirmed. A few hours after the release of its season one finale, the official Twitter account of the series released a series of celebratory art that confirmed its renewal. Although an official release window is yet to be announced, we expect ‘Uzaki-chan Wants to Hang Out!’ Season 2 to release sometime in Early 2022.  Here’s a video announcing its production decision:

Below you can find some key visuals of the upcoming season:

For the most part, the anime is a pretty loyal adaptation of the original manga. Even so, there are sections where the anime drifts away from the source and brings in entirely original story arcs. For instance, the tenth episode of the season has no links to the manga. With this approach, the anime covers close to 33 chapters and three volumes of the source. Since the manga only has five published volumes so far, there isn’t enough content for a whole new season. But considering the manga’s previous release schedule, we expect two new volumes to come out by the end of 2021. Assuming that enough manga content will be available for season 2 by mid-2021, an early 2022 release seems prudent.

Where to Watch Uzaki-chan wa Asobitai! Online?

You can watch the first season of ‘Uzaki-chan wa Asobitai!’ on Funimation with its original Japanese audio and English subtitles.

Uzaki-chan wa Asobitai! Season 2 Plot: What can it be about?

The first season served as a foundation for Uzaki’s hilarious gimmicks and how they often land Shinichi in trouble. But the second season will drift more towards the romance genre by emphasizing the progressions of the couple’s relationship. While they’ll grow closer with each episode, they’ll be in a constant state of denial towards their feelings for one another. Their eccentric adventures will even lead them to a fortune-teller at one point who’ll be surprised to know that they’re not dating. As a result of this encounter, Shinichi will relentlessly think about the fortune-teller’s words, spiraling him down further into his complicated feelings for Uzaki.
