Following the broadcast of the 12th and final episode of the Shinigami Bocchan to Kuro Maid (The Duke of Death and His Maid) television anime on Sunday, an anime sequel was announced.

Produced by J.C.Staff with Shogakukan Music & Digital Entertainment (SMDE) in charge of CGI, the anime series premiered on July 4. Funimation streamed the anime with subtitles and English dub as it aired in Japan.

Koharu Inoue began serializing the romantic comedy manga in Sunday Webry web manga portal in October 2017. Shogakukan published the 13th volume on July 12. Seven Seas Entertainment licensed the manga in English on July 2 and plans to ship the first volume on May 24, 2022.

Synopsis
As the elegant, frail flower petals wither away into lifeless ashes, the young duke is tragically reminded of the despicable power forced upon him—the ability to kill anything he touches. Scorned by his family, he is sent away to live in near isolation. Fortunately, he is not entirely alone, as the manor's staff— his dutiful butler Rob and the flirtatious maid Alice—keep him company and make his life less miserable.

As the duke's romantic feelings for Alice grow, so does his continued frustration for the limits set by his unfortunate ability. Therefore, he resolves to break the curse cast upon him all those years ago, not only for his sake, but Alice's as well—for he is painfully aware of how difficult it is to avoid the touch of a loved one.

Oh yay I didn't think this show would get a sequel. I'm happy and hope we can get closer to finding out how to break the curse and some more wholesome moments!

Was it that popular? I'm trying to watch the first (already the first) season and I had an awkward feeling like I'm the third wheel on someone else's date.

it won't get broken, they'd need a third season for that.

This show is probably the only one from this season I wanted to have a continuation, apart from the Dragon maid season 2.

Good to see, good to see.

While the anime dropped a tier along the course of the journey, I'm still excited to see where this will go!

Don't quite know why I had expected the anime to end with the curse being broken, knowing how around many chapters the manga's currently at, so while I did hope for some more actual story here in the end, it was a good spot to leave on for now. Looking forward to the sequel, although I hope it won't quite go like High Score Girl's 2nd season being divided into 3/9 episodes.
Don't mind me,
just passing by...

Tohru will get a 3 and 4 and 5 and many more. its super popular and its done by the most beloved studio ever, KyoAni (worth it or not). No one watched bocchan cause of the cgi and its great JC Stuff supports it with a second season.

I'm a bit old for romance, where both characters constantly confess their love to each other.

What a surprise . I was not expecting the 1st season to be this well recieved , let alone get a sequel announcement right away . I am a big fan of the manga but i hated the anime . Skipped through the whole thing , just couldnt stand the visuals .
Nevertheless i am happy for the mangaka .
Next season really has some heartwarming and breaking moments , even more than the first season . And a shit ton of plot twists .

I dont think i can bear seeing my girl sarah be in fucking cg .

It reminded me a bit of Tsuki ga Kirei, which was rather awkward to watch due to its overly realistic portrayal of teenage romantic attraction. It was like I was spying on teenagers, which is not the best association when you are 25+.

Liked the first season even the anime is CGI. The story and the romance of the mains is strong point of this anime
