Wotakoi Season 2 (2022)
It’s still popular for people to watch anime and manga, even though the most popular shows are about teenagers, especially “slice-of-life” shows.
“Wotakoi: Love Is Difficult for Otaku” shows adults in an Otaku-friendly way. The webcomic “Wotakoi” by Fujita came out on Pixiv in 2014.
In a year’s time, Ichijinsha started publishing the manga in print as part of Comic Pool, which is a joint project. Live-action version: a film made by people. TikTok dancing became popular after the show came out.
They work in an office full of otaku. In her free time, Narumi likes to draw and read yaoi doujinshi. She can be herself because her boyfriend is a gamer.
Kamakura, Hanako’s high school boyfriend, likes to read manga and watch anime. Nao, Hirotaka’s younger brother, is more interested in games and pop culture now that he’s been friends with Kou, an introvert.
The second season of the show hasn’t been confirmed. A lot of people have given the show a 4.8-star rating after watching it on Amazon Prime. This makes it one of the service’s most popular shows. In their geekiness, fans of the characters’ ages found a safe place to hide.
As far as I know, the manga has been a big hit (it did grow from a webcomic to a full-blown publication, after all). Crunchyroll says that as of August 2020, more than 10 million copies of both physical and digital copies had been made.
There will be no surprise if there is a second season. Even yet, due to a pandemic and the time it takes to develop animation, we may not see it for another year or two.
As it stands, anyone who wants to see more of “Wotakoi” will have to either study the original material, which consists of ten tankobon volumes or watch the first season again and make up stories about where their favorite characters will end up.
Who Are the Wotakoi Season 2 Cast Members?
No new characters will likely join the cast in the near future, as the show tends to focus on the six central characters without introducing anybody else to the otaku community. There is a good chance the voice actors from the previous season will return.
There are a number of voice actors that will appear in the anime:
- Arisa Date as Narumi Momose
- Kent Ito as Hirotaka Nifuji
- Miyuki Sawashiro as Hanako Koyanagi
- Tomokazu Sugita as Joseph Joestar
- Yuki Kaji as Naoya Nifuji
- Aoi Yki (Iris in Pokemon) as Kou
There hasn’t been any word on whether “Wotakoi” will have an English dub in the near future. As Amazon has exclusive distribution rights in the United States, they would have the last say on whether or not this would happen.
A new season will likely startup where the previous one left off. In one of the OVAs, Nao and Kou are able to accept the news and even go on a date, which makes them reflect on their prior relationship.
Volumes 5–8 of the manga might be adapted if the second season and OVAs have the same amount of episodes and OVAs as the first.
For example, an episode set in a hot spring, Narumi’s first attempt at cosplay, Nao and Kou’s blossoming relationship, and Kabakura proposing to Hanako after she loses her most valued possession: the matching necklace he gave her in high school.
This narrative is full of nerdiness, miscommunications, and most importantly, love.
Narumi, an office worker, and secret Yaoi enthusiast agree. Her professional change allows her to run with Hirotaka, an attractive video gaming geek with whom she grew up. They decide to become romantically involved, but being geeks, they struggle to maintain a relationship.
