Will there be a second season of Dorehodoro?
Last update on April 27, 2021:
- At the time of writing on April 2021, Neither Netflix nor MAPPA has yet renewed the series for a second season. The series was listed in the best Netflix anime list of 2020. On the other hand, the series was nominated for the 2021 5th Crunchyroll Anime Awards. The possibility of renewal for the new season is quite high. We will update it again in the coming days.
There is not yet an official renewal of a new season, but Yuichiro Hayashi, the director of the series, said he would make the season 2 possible if the first season is successful. As the anime continues far longer than the first season’s topics, a second season of the series will probably be released sooner or later than expected.
So how about manga? There are other details that strengthen the possibility of the 2nd season. The manga written by Q Hayashida is now complete. However, there is still enough source material to keep the anime going for another season. It even seems enough for Season 3. The manga currently consists of 23 volumes published between November 30, 2000, and September 12, 2018, and 8 of these 23 volumes were sources for the first season.
Another parameter is the ratings. As we said before, the series’s reviews and television ratings are quite good and the popularity score is 81,9%. We think it is inevitable that the series will have a new season. If the series gets a renewal in the near term, it can release summer 2021.
For an anime to be approved for the new season, the production is expected to bring profit and sell at least 4,000 DVDs and BluRays. Disc sales of the anime were below expectations. It sold 2781 units, but 2020 was a very tough year in terms of anime disc sales. Although the disc sales are bad, the Netflix factor should not be skipped.
Netflix has an exclusive distribution contract for Dorohedro’s anime. This can be said to be an element that greatly advances the second production. Netflix is famous for investing a lot of money in production. Also, considering that many Netflix exclusive distribution animations such as High Score Girl and Baki have started the second phase production, it is highly possible that it is the second phase of Drohedro.
Is there released a trailer for season 2?
The trailer for the second season has not been released yet, but we think the renewal of the series is near. We can see a trailer with the details of the second season in a few months. For now, we leave you with a loved scene of the series.
