Ao Ashi, a manga penned and illustrated by Yūgo Kobayashi, has been serialized in Big Comic Spirits since January 2015 and compiled into volumes by Shogakukan. The anime adaptation, produced by Production I.G, began airing on April 9, 2022. Since the first season of the anime has been highly successful, we decided to check whether Ao Ashi will receive a second season, and if yes, when?

  • Article Breakdown:
  • The second season of Ao Ashi still hasn’t been confirmed yet, but considering the popularity of the series, there are good chances that it might return for a second season.
  • Considering that there is no news regarding the second season, we can’t speculate on the release date.

Editor’s Note: This post was updated in December 2023; there is still no info regarding the second season of Ao Ashi.

What is the expected release date for Ao Ashi Season 2?

Since January 5, 2015, Ao Ashi has been captivating readers in Shogakukan’s Big Comic Spirits magazine. A spin-off, Ao Ashi Brother Foot, by the same author, graced the pages from July 12, 2021, to August 30, 2021, in Big Comic Spirits. The anime adaptation announcement for Spring 2028 was made on May 28, 2021, and it was brought to life by the talented team at Production I.G. The series premiered on NHK Educational TV2 on April 9, 2022, with Crunchyroll securing broadcasting rights outside Asia.

While the future of Ao Ashi remains uncertain, the show’s popularity speaks volumes. Speculating on a potential second season, the earliest release date could be in late 2024 or early 2025, pending updates in the next year. There’s still plenty of material left to cover, and the series hasn’t officially been canceled so that definitely amounts to something.

Ao Ashi Season 2 doesn’t have trailer yet

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. But, based on our information, 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 making a proper prediction.

Considering 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 mid-2024, but we would have to get confirmation of a second season for that to happen.

What could the plot Ao Ashi Season 2 be?

We do not know where the second season of Ao Ashi could take us now 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 no clue how far the second season might go if it even happens.

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:
