Arte, adapted from Kei Ohkubo’s manga series to the anime series, met with the audience with its first season in recent months. Announced by the Japanese broadcasting company Tokuma Shoten in July 2019 and broadcast from April 4 to June 20, the anime series managed to win the audience’s appreciation. The series was originally published on Tokyo MX, BS Fuji, and ytv. The new season details of the Funimation licensed series, which was translated into English and met with Hulu’s audience, are curious. Has it been renewed for season 2? What will the season 2 plotline be, and when will it air?

What is the plotline of Arte and what can be the next?
The story of the series takes place in Florence in the 16th century during the most lively periods of the renaissance. Arte is a young and beautiful lady who is fond of art and is doing her best to rise from civilization. However, after his father’s death, things don’t go the way Arte wanted. Arte is shaken by the death of him and his father, the strongest supporter of his art. Arte now has to marry a nobleman and live as a housewife. Arte, a powerful girl, decides to look for an art master in the streets instead of this road.
Nobody believes in Arte, who is excluded in this world because she is a woman. Until a famous master named Leo accepted him as his student. A difficult path awaits Arte, who tries to master the art and has to earn money to live. The last time we watched the anime, Arte returned to Florence and met his master again. As Leo advises her about his ambitions, Arte searched for a bigger boss. During this time, she begins to read and evolve to find a greater master. Veronica also advises him to leave Arte and find a new master. Arte receives a call from Rome, and this is a really unusual offer. Irene is a successful Spanish aristocrat and linked to the Cardinal, and Arte can paint a portrait of a Princess. How will she respond to this great offer and shape its future? We hope to see the answer to this question in season 2.
When will Arte season 2 air?
As of May 3, 2021: At the time of writing, the Arte anime is not yet renewed for a second season.
- Manga and anime adaptation comparison has been added to the post. (December 5, 2020)
- The disc sales information for the first season has been added. (May 3, 2020)
Seven Arcs, the Japanese anime production company responsible for producing the series, has not yet shared any information about the production of the second season of the series. The manga of the series is not ready yet. A period of at least one year is needed for all preparations to be completed.
There is no official statement for the new season of the series, but we do not see a new season possible as a result of our speculation. The main reason for this is that it is underrated and does not give what is desired in disc sales.
As an official statement comes, we will inform you from here again.
Arte, or Arute as it is known in Japan, is a TV adaptation of the manga written by Kei Ohkubo. The manga series, which started broadcasting on October 25, 2013, is still ongoing today. The manga’s continuation increases the possibilities of the next season because the manga is the anime’s only source material.
Fourteen volumes have been released for the manga so far, and the last volume has been released on January 20, 2021. The original manga is published in Monthly Comic Zenon magazine. Media Do, an English Publisher, translated some of the manga into English. (Only first three-volume so far.)
Arte’s anime covers 37 chapters of the manga. This is in the middle of the eighth volume. The anime is located in the middle of the manga, and we can say that there is enough source material for a second season. You can learn the rest of the story by reading the manga starting from the 8th volume if you want.
In general, the anime is expected to remain at an average of over 4,000 sales for a new season. Although disc sales are not as valuable as before as exclusive distributors have grown in recent years, it is an important factor in seeing the popularity in Japan. In the first season of the anime, it sold discs in 2 volumes and was one of the least selling anime of 2020. It sold 211 units in the first volume and 222 in the second volume. With these sales figures, a second season is almost impossible.
Is there a trailer for the second season of Arte?
No visual preparation has yet been made for the second season of the series. Therefore, it does not seem possible to see a trailer at this stage. However, we will keep track of the news for you and update it as it becomes available.
