Kotaro Lives Alone Season 2 Release Date Status: Renewed or Cancelled?
The first season of Kotaro Lives Alone was an emotional roller coaster, with both heartwarming and tragic moments. We’re hoping Netflix will pick up the show for a second season soon, as there is still a lot of manga to adapt. Below we have mentioned everything we know about Kotaro Lives Alone season 2 on Netflix so far.
Netflix’s original slice-of-life comedy anime, Kotaro Lives Alone, is based on the manga series by Mami Tsumura.
Kotaro Sato, a four-year-old Japanese boy, moves into the Shimizu Apartments. Kotaro shops, as usual, his plastic sword slung over his little waist. However young, Kotaro is smart beyond his years and begins to influence people around him, showing his will to live strong until the day he may see his parents once again.
What is the Renewal Status of Kotaro Lives Alone Season 2?
It’s been almost a week since Netflix made Kotaro Lives Alone available to stream, but the streaming provider has yet to confirm whether or not the anime has been renewed.
It’s rare for Netflix to renew an anime within the first few weeks, or even months, following its premiere unless it’s explicitly stated.
We expect Kotaro Lives Alone will be renewed in the near future, based on the tremendous response from critics and subscribers.
Note that only five countries have voted it into Netflix’s top ten. However, on March 13th, it rose to third place in Japan’s top ten list, cementing its place in the top ten list worldwide.
What Can We Expect From Season 2 of Kotaro Lives Alone?
Many of Kotaro’s unfortunate and heartbreaking situations were revealed over the first season.
Many of Kotaro’s peculiarities stemmed from his childhood experiences of abuse and neglect, such as his insatiable appetite for tissues, which he was forced to consume when he was left to starve.
While the youngster has been under Kotaro’s cautious attention, his neighbor Karino has grown to care for him more and more with each passing day.
Even though Kotaro still has many small adventures in his neighborhood to look forward to, he has yet to learn of his mother’s death thanks to Karino’s tragic discovery.
Even though Kotaro’s father is still alive, he has no contact with the little boy due to his history of abuse. Karino is the closest thing to a family member that Kotaro has.
How much of the manga has been adapted into the anime?
One of the most difficult mangas to locate online with complete translations of all eight presently published volumes is Kotaro Lives Alone. As a result, the only copies of the manga that are now available are those being sold by Japanese internet publishers.
The manga’s first two volumes are now available online thanks to a recent promotion. If you want to read volumes 3 and up, you’ll need to pay, because there are no English translations available.
It is, nevertheless, possible to predict based on what we saw online that the first season would end around Volume 4. At this point, there are at least another four volumes that are just waiting to be animated.
When Can We Anticipate the Second Season of Kotaro Lives Alone to Air?
Season 2 of Kotaro Lives Alone might air as early as the end of the year or as late as the beginning of 2023 if the show has already been renewed.
Liden Films may wait till the spring or summer of 2023 if they are waiting for a green light to make additional episodes.
