The show was loved by audiences and did pretty well in the world of anime! It got a 7.6/10 rating on MyAnimeList.net and a 7.3/10 on IMDb.
The first season ended on a cliffhanger which left fans wondering when a sequel would be announced. It has been 3 years since the first season aired. In this time span, there have also been petitions online to bring Tsurezure Children back. Despite all of this, why haven’t the makers announced a Tsurezure Children season 2?
TSUREZURE CHILDREN SEASON 2
Tsurezure Children is directed by Hiraku Kaneko and produced by Nihon Ad Systems (NAS) and Studio Gokumi. The episodes were written by Tatsuhiko Urahata and music was provided by Tenmon.
Season 1 ended on a cliffhanger and fans are desperately waiting to know what happened next. The fan base online has been trying their best to convince the makers for a sequel. However, there hasn’t been any announcement regarding season 2 or anything else related to the show post-season 1. The reason for this is unknown.
Since the show ended in 2018, there have been 12 new volumes of manga. This means there is enough content for the creators to animate and continue the show for at least another 2 seasons. The first season covered content only up till the 81st section of the fifth volume of the manga series. This implies that the makers have at least another 7 volumes to work with.
As for now, the wait goes on!
