Kotaro Lives Alone Season 2: Possible Release Date Status on Netflix


‘Kotaro Lives Alone’ is a comedy anime that is based on the Japanese manga series of the same name written and illustrated by Mami Tsumura. The anime is a parody of the manga series. Shin Karino is an unsuccessful manga artist who meets and becomes friends with Kotaro, a lonely 5-year-old boy who lives in a dilapidated apartment building after moving there. Contrary to expectations, the young boy is self-sufficient, and despite the fact that he lost his parents at a young age, he has managed to earn a living and is far more organised than his adult neighbours, who are also struggling in their lives.

The hilarious misadventures of Kotaro have managed to capture the attention of viewers all over the world almost immediately after its premiere. As a result, it’s only natural for them to be curious about whether or not it will return for a second instalment. In case you have the same question, we have the answer for you. Just keep reading.

Kotaro Lives Alone Season 2 Release Date

The first season of ‘Kotaro Lives Alone’ will premiere on March 10, 2022. The first instalment consists of ten episodes, each of which has a running time of approximately 26-27 minutes. A television drama based on Mami Tsumura’s manga series was released in 2021, which served as a prelude to the company’s first web animation production.

Here’s everything we know so far about the upcoming revival of the popular comedy anime series. “Kotaro Lives Alone” has not been renewed by the companies involved in its production, and there has been no official announcement about it. Although disappointed, fans shouldn’t be discouraged because the first season has only recently been released, which means we can expect a positive development in the coming weeks.

Those who believe in such speculation should consider the fact that Mami Tsumura’s manga series already consists of eight volumes, and that by producing ten episodes out of it, the comedy anime has only scratched the surface of the overall content. Consequently, there isn’t a scarcity of source material to cover. Furthermore, companies’ investment in anime has only increased in recent years, with CEO Reed Hastings emphasising the importance of investing more money in the genre on a number of occasions throughout the year.

Additionally, in addition to all of the aforementioned factors, the streaming giant has expressed an interest in light-hearted anime shows such as ‘Komi Can’t Communicate,’ ‘The Way of the Househusband,’ and ‘Komi Can’t Communicate,’ in the recent past, demonstrating their desire to broaden their selection of comedy anime. After taking all of this into consideration, it appears that the show will be renewed in the near future. Therefore, ‘Kotaro Lives Alone’ season 2 will most likely premiere sometime in early 2022.

Kotaro Lives Alone Season 2 Plot

In season 1, Kotaro meets Karino shortly after moving into his new apartment. The two become fast friends. In the following weeks, the unlikely acquaintances become friends, and they discover each other’s hilarious secrets as well. Kotaro assists his friend Kakeru, who is overly reliant on his maid for all of his household chores, in learning to be self-sufficient. During this time, Karino discovers a great deal about the young boy, including the reasons for his distinctive speech, his preference for soft and expensive tissues, and his favourite films.

Throughout season 2, we can expect Kotaro to continue to be significantly more sophisticated and self-sufficient than his adult peers. He will make more friends, and it is likely that viewers will learn more about his background as the series progresses. Nonetheless, Karino may draw inspiration from the young man and achieve some success in his professional life.
