Maid Sama! is a shōjo manga by Hiro Fujiwara. It was published in publisher Hakusensha’s LaLa magazine between April 2006 and September 2013, and was compiled into eighteen volumes. The manga was adapted into a 26-episode anime television series by studio J.C. Staff which aired between April and September 2010 on TBS and BS-TBS. Two OVAs were then produced. It’s been years since the first season premiered and in this article, we are going to tell you whether you can expect a second season of Maid Sama! anytime soon.
The second season of Maid Sama! still hasn’t been confirmed or canceled yet. The first season aired twelve years ago and while there still is a lot of material to adapt from the now-finished manga series, the second season is still uncertain. Having said all of this, Maid Sama! is a very talked-about series, and based on all the known facts, a second season is not impossible. We just don’t know when it could happen.
The rest of this article will bring you all the known and unknown information related to a potential season 2 of Maid Sama!. 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 exciting anime series whose future is still somewhat uncertain.
Will Maid Sama! Season 2 happen?
The manga was written and illustrated by Hiro Fujiwara. The series was serialized in Hakusensha’s LaLa magazine until September 2013 and the first tankōbon was released on September 5, 2006. On August 3, 2018, another volume was released titled Maid-sama! Marriage. The October 2009 issue of LaLa announced that a twenty-seven-episode television anime based on the series would be produced.
It was broadcast on TBS and BS-TBS during the spring of 2010. The April 2010 issue of LaLa revealed that the broadcast was scheduled for April 1, 2010 at 1:55 am. The adaptation was also presented at the Tokyo International Anime Fair with the participation of Ayumi Fujimura, Nobuhiko Okamoto, Kana Hanazawa, and Yū Kobayashi.
The anime was licensed by Sentai Filmworks and the Anime Network made the series available for streaming on its video portal. Section23 Films released the first set, subtitled in English, on DVD on June 7, 2011. The series, produced by J.C. Staff, was directed by Hiroaki Sakurai with the character design developed by Yuki Imoto, the music composed by Tōru Motoyama, and the script written under the supervision of Mamiko Ikeda.
The opening theme is “My Secret” by Saaya Mizuno, while the closing ones are “Yokan” for episodes 1-15 and “∞ loop” for episodes 16-27, both by the band Heidi. Having said all of this, what is going to happen with Maid Sama! in the future? Is there going to be a second season or not?
As you can see, the future of Maid Sama! is quite uncertain, but not because there’s no interest or because there’s a lack of material. The series is very popular and we’ll just have to see whether there is enough interest for a continuation to make any proper predictions about the potential continuation of the series. The manga did well, and the first season received solid reviews, but it’s been a while and there has been no news on the show’s future.
In any case, the earliest we could see a potential second season is late 2023, but we’d have to get some confirmation on the future during 2022 or easily 2023; 2024 is also a strong possibility. The fans are demanding a new season, but we’ll just have to see how it goes; as far as things stand now, a cancelation has not been confirmed, but we cannot rule it out either.
What could be the plot of Maid Sama! Season 2?
At this moment, we do not know how far the second season of Maid Sama! 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 an overview of the source material that could be adapted in a potential second season..
The Seika High School was once an all-boys school but gradually opened up to girls as well. The isolation created a harsh atmosphere in the classes so that the girls find it very difficult to gain a foothold and repeatedly suffer from humiliation at the hands of the boys. The girl Misaki Ayuzawa still manages to assert herself against her classmates and to become the first student councilor.
Because of her behavior, she is soon considered a man-hater but is respected or feared. But behind this facade, she also fights against various other problems. Among other things, her family, which consists of her mother and little sister, was abandoned by her father and is now sitting on a huge pile of debt.
In order to stop the decay of her own apartment and to help her overworked mother, Misaki looks for a job in a maid café. Since she has to serve mainly male customers there, she tries to keep her job a secret from her classmates. Meanwhile, at school, she is often confronted with the heartthrob Takumi Usui, who repeatedly rejects all declarations of love and makes the girls cry.
As a result, a special form of hatred against him builds up in her. One day, however, Takumi meets Misaki in front of the Maid Café and discovers her secret. However, her fears that she would now lose her reputation are not fulfilled as Takumi keeps her secret and protects her as he develops feelings for her, unlike the other girls.
Likewise, Misaki slowly develops feelings for Takumi and an ambivalent love relationship builds up, which repeatedly has to suffer severe setbacks. In the end, however, Usui Takumi is able to confess his love to Misaki Ayuzawa at a school festival.
