What’s Up with ‘Absolute Duo’ Season 2- Releasing or Canceled? [2023 Updates] 

Will there be Absolute Duo Season 2? The answer is NO! But there are few chances of Absolute Duo returning with the second part. 

Just like numerous anime, Absolute Duo is a Japanese anime adaptation of the light novel series by Takumi Hiiragiboshi. After the success of the light novel series in 2012, it was adapted into the manga series in 2013.

Soon after 1+ year, Absolute Duo Season 1 was released on January 4, 2015, on AT-X, Tokyo MX, KBS, and few other Japanese television networks by Eight Bit Inc Studio. Atsushi Nakayama is the director of this series.

Season 1 Episode 12 telecasted on March 22, 2015; since then, fans have one question in their mind- “Will Absolute Duo have Season 2?” 50-50 chances of release are seen. Let’s discuss it in detail.


What are speculations of Absolute Duo having Season 2? 

In the same year, when season 1 terminated with 12 episodes, in 2015, Twitter flooded with the demand of Absolute Duo Season 2. Here is one tweet back from 2015.

Looking at the growing demand for the second run, you might have expected it to fall sometime in 2016-17. But sadly, no one got to watch it.

Almost after 6 years, loyal fans are still waiting for the second run of Absolute Duo, but this news might break them! There are high chances the Absolute Season 2 might not return with season 2.

Is Absolute Duo Season 2 Officially Canceled?

The only fact that is working as a ray of hope for the fans- no official announcements about cancellation! Yes, you might take a sigh of relief if you are a die-hard fan of this anime tv series.

Absolute Duo’s officials have not come out with information regarding official pack up of the series and not releasing season 2. It keeps the hope alive in the hearts of fans that the second season of Absolute Duo might fall sometime.

Why is Season 2 not Confirmed?

Absolute Duo Season 2

The main reason for the delay in Absolute Duo’s second season is the scarcity of source material. Light novel series completed its storyline in 11 volumes.

As season 1 covered everything from the light novel and left nothing for season 2. Due to this reason, there are fewer chances of season 2 to happen.

The possibility of season 2 increases in the case of the Takumi Hiiragiboshi decides to write additional volumes in light novel series. Because of less, or we can say no source material, one successful project is in a queue of release.

Will an OVA or Film replace Season 2?

If the demand for the new season keeps on increasing, the 8bit Studio has to take it into consideration. There are chances that an OVA or an animation film may take over season 2.

It gets easy for the production team to come up with a film or special episode because it requires comparatively less material in its storyline. Fans are waiting for season 2, but I hope you guys might enjoy a film or OVA as well.
