The official website for Himouto! Umaru-chan has announced that the TV anime will receive a second season to air in Fall 2017. The main staff and cast members will reprise their roles. More information will be revealed at a later time.
Himouto! Umaru-chan is drawn by SankakuHead and began its serialization in Young Jump in March 2013. The series currently has nine compiled volumes in print, with the tenth volume shipping on April 19. The first season by Doga Kobo aired in Summer 2015, and was simulcast by Crunchyroll. An unaired episode 13 was bundled with the manga's seventh volume in October 2015. Previously announced second OVA will also be bundled with the tenth compiled volume.
Totally well deserved! Really fun slice of life comedy with Umaru-chan being super mischievous. The Attack on Umaru-chan in the PV gave me a shock hahah, would be sick if they also bring back the first season song, the one being played in the PV, so catchy and nice pun.
Really Doga Kobo? This gets a second season, but no announcement Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun S2? Oh well. At least we'll get New Game! Season 2. Wasn't the biggest fan of the first season, but I'll watch this anyway since it had some fun moments.
Pretty good news, since I really liked S1 of Umaru-chan. Hopefully more Kirie appears because I like her very much. :3
Paulo27 said: This is the last straw for Doga Kobo, how a studio that was looking so promising ended up so trashy.
I mean they essentially make SoL and they have been consistent with that. Not really salty about it since 3 of those shows that got announced sequels were pretty enjoyable for me, but I can understand what you mean. Tho... they're not as trash compared to "Arms" xD Just gonna say that... even though its a bit irrelevant.
I'm no special story or anything. I'm just a manga that wants to be read, like you could find anywhere. But, if, for argument's sake, you were to adapt me into an anime series, it would certainly be....a tragedy.
-The Tokyo Ghoul/Tokyo Ghoul:re manga, if they could talk
Honestly really surprised this got a 2nd season, i kinda already gave up on the hope that it would ever recieve a 2nd season maybe just some more OVA.
So yeah quite happy now and looking forward to it :)
