Renewed Or Cancelled?
Romantic Killer is the latest Netflix anime, blending romantic comedy elements with a dash of gaming and well-worked action. After finishing all 12 episodes, you may be wondering if this has been renewed or cancelled. Here’s what we know:
What is Romantic Killer Season 1 about?
This series revolves around a high-school freshman named Anzu who is living a great life as a shut-in. She enjoys playing video games, spending time with her cat Momohiki, and eating endless supplies of chocolate. One day, Anzu receives a new video game in the mail and decides to play it. She’s weirded out by it and realizes it’s the wrong game. Regardless, she presses on.
Suddenly, a wizard-like creature named Riri enters her world through her TV, startling her. Riri explains that Anzu is their company’s first test subject in their plan to fix Japan’s dwindling population. To do so, they hired Riri to assist Anzu in helping her achieve romance. To ensure Anzu follows their plan, Riri confiscates Anzu’s favorite hobbies and has her parents sent away on a trip with her beloved cat Momohiki.
Riri promises to return the items once Anzu falls in love with one of the Ikemen (good-looking men) he has lined up for her. To spite Riri, Anzu plans to become a Romantic Killer, a being who can defy all romance. She hopes that her consistent lack of interest in romantic affairs will provoke Riri to quit and return her life to normal. Unfortunately, her plans are thwarted when she meets Tsukasa, a popular Ikemen in her school.

Has Romantic Killer been renewed for season 2?
At the time of writing, Romantic Killer has not been renewed for a second season. Given the nature of the show’s content, that could well change if it does good numbers for Netflix.
Generally Netflix gauge numerous metrics before renewing a show, including how many people initially watch it and then looking at the drop-off rate. With some shows, cancellations or renewals happen quickly (ala. Squid Game, Bridgerton & Irregulars) Other times, it can take months before Netflix make a decision over a show’s future.
So far, Romantic Killer has had a really good reaction from audiences and critics alike, with plenty of anime action and some really nice animation. Fans seem to be resonating with this one but of course, it all comes down to that drop-off rate.
Given the way this show is set up and that big cliffhanger at the end of season 1, we predict that this will be renewed for a second season. This is the perfect sort of show to binge through and the cliffhanger, promising more to come, seems to be indicative that the creators are confident this will get the nod for a follow-up.
We’ll be sure to update this section with accurate details over the coming weeks and months when we know more!
What we know about season 2 so far:
Barely anything is known about season 2 at this point, given Netflix have not green-lit a sequel. However, there’s a very good case for another season to follow.
If this is renewed, expect the story to pick up where it left off from before, with Anzu’s romantic life advancing as expected but clearly with more bumps in the road to come.
As mentioned above, we predict that this will be renewed but we’ll be sure to update this page in the future when more information is known though!
