This is a live-update article and it will be updated as new details about More Than A Married Couple, But Not Lovers Season 2 come our way. This is what we know so far.
More than a Married Couple, but Not Lovers, also known as Fuufu Ijou, Koibito Miman, is an ongoing seinen anime that has started airing its first season on Crunchyroll in October 2022. The anime is adapted from a manga created by Yūki Kanamaru and has been serialized since March 2018 in Kadokawa Shoten's seinen manga magazine Young Ace. Anime lovers have poured their love and support into this first season but have also received polarizing reviews from critics. Despite the animation style receiving a fair share of praise, the anime is currently considered good but not great. Fans continue to speculate whether or not they will get a second season of this anime in the near future. Let’s find out.
As of now, no renewal date of More than a Married Couple, but Not Lovers has been announced by the studio MOTHER and its producer KlockWorx and there is no official confirmation for a second season. The anime has received lukewarm responses from the audience and critics alike, and despite getting regularly featured in the Top 20 on Crunchyroll’s list for the Most Popular Fall 2022 anime, there is no visible rush or rumors floating around about its renewal like SPY X FAMILY or Chainsaw Man.
The anime follows the story of Jirou, a 3rd-year high school student, who harbors romantic feelings for his childhood friend and classmate, Shiori. He hopes to be paired with her in their school's marriage practical activity, where classmates are randomly paired and act as married couples, with their chemistry and rapport being evaluated for specific ratings. However, Jirou is instead paired with Akari, another girl in their class who has a crush on Minami. The situation becomes more complicated when Minami gets paired with Shiori, Jirou's crush. The pairs compete to earn the most points, with the top 10 pairs having the opportunity to switch partners.
Seiichiro Yamashita, known for his work in Demon Slayer and My Hero Academia, provides the voice of Yakuin Jirou, and Saori Oonishi voices Watanabe Akari. Other than the two lead voice actors, Minami Takahashi and Toshiki Masuda will be the voice behind secondary characters like Takamiya Sachi and Tenjin Minami respectively. The series is directed by Takao Kato and Junichi Yamamoto.
According to the buzz amongst the fans on the internet, a possible second season of More than a Married Couple, but Not Lovers anime will show the protagonist Jirou in a dilemma while trying to choose between Akari Watanabe and his childhood friend, Shiori Sakurazak, as the dissolution date of the school’s marriage practical dawns near.
