Like the last episode of My happy marriage broadcast on Netflix, it was quickly announced that Season 2 of the anime was already in production. News is shared from many sources, including video presentations. With the strong positive reception that the first season of this hit romance anime received, fans are sure to see a sequel soon.
The announcement was made on the anime’s official X account and by a celebratory video uploaded to the KADOKAWA Anime Channel on YouTube. While there are few details on what to expect, it’s likely that Kinema Citrus will continue handling the adaptation. Confirmation that Miyo and Kiyoka’s flirtation will continue is welcome, though it’s not surprising given how popular this anime was over the summer.
My happy marriage has many stories for part 2
In the KADOKAWA video, voice actors Reina Ueda and Kaito Ishikawa, who play the main roles in the anime, announced confirmation of the production of Season 2. The official X account also gave a brief confirmation, only mentioning again that Part 2 is in the works; Additionally, neither source provided further details. At most, Ishikawa teased that new characters may appear in the future. It’s safe to say that Kinema Citrus will be tapped again for more episodes of My Happy Marriage.
The quick announcement of a sequel was almost predictable, given how well the anime was received. “Something for everyone” here is no exaggeration, as it combines a Cinderella-style rags-to-riches romance with light, faux political intrigue. The historical fantasy of the early 1900s, quality animation, and even well-executed battle scenes ensure all viewers have something to look forward to. Miyo’s struggle to escape her abusive family and connect with her fiancee made her easy to like, making her a popular character during her broadcast season. Overall, My Happy Marriage knows how to balance its tone, ensuring it can appeal to a wide audience.
The first season only adapted two volumes of the current eight novels, so Kinema Citrus has no shortage of material to use for a sequel or beyond if fans are so lucky. While Ishikawa appears timid, later episodes bring new obstacles and opponents for Miyo and Kiyoka to face, such as the Kudou family’s parents, whom the soon-to-be wife has yet to meet. Hopefully the next season of My happy marriageWhenever it arrives, it manages to maintain the deft balance between romance, drama and intrigue that it has managed over the past 12 episodes.
My happy marriage is now available on Netflix.
