‘Asteroid in Love’ is another one of the “Cute Girls Doing Cute Things” anime with an all-girls cast. It’s heartwarming, has a simple yet interesting storyline, and even its art style is surprisingly quite impressive. What more can you ask from a slice-of-life anime? Although it’s relatively lesser-known, ‘Asteroid in Love’ is one of the finest anime of the season, and you should certainly check it out. If you’ve already watched its first season, read on further to know all about its season 2.
Asteroid in Love Season 2 Release Date: When will it premiere?
The first season of ‘Asteroid in Love’ premiered on January 3, 2020, and with a total of 12 episodes, it finished airing on March 27, 2020. Unlike most other mainstream anime of this season, ‘Koisuru Asteroid’ isn’t exactly the talk of the town; however, the ones who have seen it are appreciating it for its heartfelt moments and well-developed characters. In the past, Doga Kobo Studio has given us a few other memorable slice-of-life anime like ‘New Game’ and ‘How heavy are the dumbbells you lift?‘; however, only a few of these have been renewed for a second season so far. Moreover, the first season of ‘Koisuru Asteroid’ has a pretty conclusive ending, which leaves little to no room for a sequel.
Its source manga only has 3 published volumes, out of which, the recent one was published in February 2020. This confirms that the first season has already adapted the first two volumes of the manga series, leaving only one more for volume for a sequel. For obvious reasons, one volume is not enough for a full-fledged season, so unless the mangaka, Quro, creates at least one more volume, we won’t get to see a sequel of this anime. Going by the current pace of the manga, we’ll probably have to wait for another year to get a whole new volume of it. And since the production of an anime takes about a year, we can expect ‘Asteroid in Love’ Season 2 to release sometime in 2022.
