Has Fufu Ijo, Koibito Miman been renewed for Season 2?

At the time of writing, the anime has not officially renewed More Than A Married Couple, but not Lovers (Fufu Ijo, Koibito Miman) for season 2. Given the popularity of the show as well as the way Season 1 ended, one could expect the popular anime to be renewed for a follow-up.

Officially, the anime has not been renewed for a second season yet. However, given that most Anime shows have multiple seasons, we predict More Than A Married Couple, but not Lovers (Fufu Ijo, Koibito Miman) may be renewed for a new season.

So far there has not been an official statement about the anime series from the makes there is a possibility to see the anime be renewed for a second season that could be released in 2023.

What we know about More Than A Married Couple, but not Lovers Season 2 so far:

Since many anime shows are usually renewed for multiple seasons, one can expect the Japanese anime, More Than A Married Couple, But Not Lovers to be renewed for a new season. From where we left off in Season 1, we saw how both Akari and Shiori were adamant about confessing their feelings for Jiro.

Jiro himself is conflicted about his feelings for Akari and does not know that she likes him and not Minami. Akari and Shiori had decided to race to the temple and that the winner would confess her feelings for Jiro. However, the show had ended with both girls reaching the top of the temple at the same time.

If the show is renewed for a second season, we could expect Jiro and Shiori to be paired as a couple which would further make Jiro realize how he truly loves Akari. Since Akari knows that Minami is suffering from a one-side love of his own, there could be a possibility that he would start falling for her if they are paired together for the remainder of the marriage practical.

  20. Hey Hdbbe, thanks for commenting!

    While in the US, the date is marked as MM/DD/YY, the rest of the world does not and uses a DD/MM/YY structure. As we’re a global site, catering to a worldwide audience, (plus our main hub being based in the UK too!) then that’s why the date is written the way it is. Apologies for any confusion there!

  21. The date is wrong. 12-1-23 hasn’t happened yet and won’t for another 11 months. It would be wise to re-edit the date to the correct year.

  22. ———– SPOILER ALERT —————

    Jiro Will be always with Akari 🙂 it would be sad story, but will be together
