Ao Ashi is a manga written and drawn by Yūgo Kobayashi, published since January 2015 in Big Comic Spirits, and compiled in bound volumes by Shogakukan. An adaptation into an animated television series produced by the studio Production I.G has been broadcast since April 9, 2022. In this article, we are going to tell you everything you need to know about a potential second season of Ao Ashi.
The second season of Ao Ashi still hasn’t been confirmed yet. The first season aired just recently and the manga is still ongoing, so there is a good possibility that Ao Ashi could return for a second season. Having said all of this, Ao Ashi is a very popular series, and based on all the known facts, a second season is not impossible. We just don’t know when.
The rest of this article will bring you all the known and unknown information related to a potential season 2 of Ao Ashi. You’re going to find out about its potential release date, whether there is a trailer, what the story could be about, and much more about this extremely popular new anime series.
Ao Ashi Season 2 release date
The manga has been published since January 5, 2015 in Shogakukan’s Big Comic Spirits magazine. A spin-off series, by the same author, named Ao Ashi Brother Foot was published from July 12, 2021 to August 30, 2021 in Big Comic Spirits. On May 28, 2021, an anime television series adaptation was announced for Spring 20228. The series is animated by Production I.G studio and directed by Akira Satō with Masahiro Yokotani serving as the screenwriter.
Manabu Nakatake, Toshie Kawamura, Asuka Yamaguchi, and Saki Hasegawa handling character design, and Masaru Yokoyama composing the series’ music. The series has been airing since April 9, 2022 on NHK Educational TV2. Crunchyroll owns the rights to broadcast the series outside Asia. Alexandros performs the opening credits titled “Mushin Hakusū”, while Rinne performs the ending credits titled “Blue Diary”.
As you can see, the future of Ao Ashi is quite uncertain, but not because there’s no interest. The series is very popular and we’ll just have to see how the manga keeps doing to make any proper predictions about the potential continuation of the series. In any case, the earliest we could see a potential second season is 2024, but we’d have to get some confirmation on the future during 2022 or 2023.
Ao Ashi Season 2 trailer
You now know all the facts and our thoughts related to Ao Ashi Season 2, which means that you’ve probably deduced for yourselves that there is no trailer for the second season of Ao Ashi. This is because we do not know whether there will even be a second season of the show, which means that a trailer might not appear at all. But, based on all the information we have, this does not seem like a likely outcome.
As we have said, Ao Ashi is a very likely candidate for a return. The anime has received acclaim from both professional skaters and the otaku community, and is very popular, with the manga still being published. After that, we have to wait and see whether there are actual plans for a continuation before we can make a proper prediction.
Taking into account everything we’ve said, a trailer for Ao Ashi is unlikely to come out this or the next year. The earliest we could see a trailer is 2024, but we would have to get confirmation of a second season sometime during 2023 for that to happen.
Ao Ashi Season 2 plot
At this moment, we do not know where the second season of Ao Ashi could take us because we don’t know how many chapters of the manga the season could potentially adapt. Namely, due to a lack of information in general, we have absolutely no clue how far the second season might go if it even happens. What follows is a general overview of the show’s plot.
Ao Ashi tells the story of young Ashito Aoi in his third year at Ehime City Middle School and his meeting with football coach Tatsuya Fukuda. Ashito, although talented, is a difficult boy, but Fukuda believes in him and invites him to join his own team. This boy could well change the face of Japanese football.
Ao Ashi Season 2 cast
It’s still too early for us to discuss a potential second season of Ao Ashi in terms of cast and characters, simply because we do not know whether there will even be a second season. But, seeing how we know that the series is going to have a more-or-less fixed cast, we really don’t expect to see too many changes in the structure of season two, if it ever happens. Now, the main characters that have appeared in season one, likely to return for a second season, include:

Where to watch Ao Ashi Season 2?
At this moment, as expected, there is no means of watching Ao Ashi season two, as there is no season two of Ao Ashi to watch. The first season was streamed globally by Crunchyroll, the best anime-related site on the Internet, so it is safe to assume that a second season would also be streamed via Crunchyroll.
Will there be an Ao Ashi Season 3?
The future of Ao Ashi is, as of this moment, unknown. At this moment, we don’t really know anything about a second season, so whether we’ll be seeing the third season or not is still unknown. The series has done well and there is still a lot of material to adapt, which is a good sign for fans of Ao Ashi. Depending on how a potential second season goes, Ao Ashi could very well be renewed for a third season as well.
