It’s time to play everyone’s favorite anime game show, “Will it get a second season?” Today’s contestant is the popular comedy that premiered this past July and ran for twelve episodes on Funimation, Uzaki-chan Wants to Hang Out.
So, let’s make the big reveal… will it get a second season? Yes!
At the close of the final episode, it was revealed that the comedy series will return for a second season, though no further details were revealed at the time. We did, however, get this nifty promotional video, so let’s all check it out together!
Originally a manga series written and illustrated by Take, Uzaki-chan Wants to Hang Out! has been running on the Dra Dra Sharp website since December 2017. As of July 2020, the series has five collected volumes in print in Japan. The English version is currently licensed by Seven Seas.
The anime adaptation was announced in early 2020. The animation is produced by studio ENGI with Kazuya Miura serving as the director, working off scripts written by Takashi Aoshima. Funimation has been simulcasting the series since its premiere and describes the story as:
University student Shinichi Sakurai is comfortable being an introverted loner and doesn’t care what others think. Buxom underclassmen Hana Uzaki doesn’t understand this one bit. A tornado of joy, she’s taken it upon herself to make him more social. Starting to enjoy her company, he’d concede that they’re friends. Can it be possible to have as much fun with another person as he would by himself?
This is obviously great news for fans of the series who weren’t ready to let these characters go. Remember that Funimation is also dubbing the series and releasing new episodes as quickly as possible, despite the worldwide pandemic. The dub stars Monica Rial as Uzaki while the role of Sakurai Shinichi is being played by Ricco Fajardo.
