The new Netflix anime Romantic Killer is adapted from Wataru Momose’s manga of the same name and debuted on Netflix on October 27, 2022, with a 12-episode first season. Here’s the manga’s official synopsis, which is reflected in the show:

High schooler Anzu Hoshino has a great life. Every day she plays video games, pigs out on snacks, and pets her beloved cat. But this blissful existence is turned into a confusing mess when a magical creature transports her to an altered reality bereft of her favorite things.


The idea is that Anzu is anti-romance but is forced through these circumstances to consider becoming romantically involved with various potential suitors, a dynamic that forms the bulk of the first season. Here’s everything we know about the show’s potential future.

What is the Romantic Killer Netflix renewal standing?

At the time of writing, there have been no updates on the way forward for Romantic Killer on Netflix. This doesn’t come as a shock because the anime has only been available to stream on Netflix for less than a week.

Within the following few weeks, we’ll even have the hourly viewing figures.


Does Romantic Killer 2 need a second season?

The English translation of the manga is currently only limited to the first volume, so to read ahead we had to take a look at the raw Japanese scans of the manga to see how much of the source material had been covered. We can confirm that all 38 chapters of the manga have been covered by the Netflix anime adaptation.
However, this doesn’t mean that we won’t see more of Romantic Killer on Netflix. The anime ends on the same cliffhanger as the manga, the revelation that Anzu’s three favorite items have been returned to her, video games, chocolate, and her cat, but only temporarily. If Anzu is still single by the end of high school she will lose all three forever! The major difference between the anime and manga is how the wizard Kate, is assigned to Yukana as her new assignment, meanwhile, Riri flies into the sky telling us, the audience, that things are progressing in Anzu’s love life, leaving us with a “to be continued.” So even though the manga has seemingly come to an end, it looks like the anime doesn’t plan on stopping anytime soon.


What might Romantic Killer Season 2 be about?

A second season would be likely to carry on directly from the end of the first, with Anzu trying to navigate her relationship with the boys while dealing with the much higher stakes imposed on her by Riri’s return. That ticking-clock device and the erosion of Ansu’s desires — again! — would provide a solid motivation for her to reexamine her relationships with Tsukasa, Junta, and Hijiri.
