Odd Taxi, or ODDTAXI, as it is often stylized, is a show that we could best describe as being – odd (pun intended). It’s a very intriguing and original show with very interesting characters and an unlikely plot in an unlikely world full of unlikely characters. And this is why, against all odds (okay, we’re stopping), Odd Taxi became an unlikely hit and we can’t wait for the adaptation of Kazuya Konomoto’s to continue in a possible season 2.
As of December 2021, there is no official news regarding a second season of Odd Taxi, but seeing how the first season ended in a cliffhanger and how the manga is very popular, Odd Taxi is a very likely candidate for a renewal or continuation, especially since there is an anime movie coming out in April 2022. Whether the show will be continued after the movie we still don’t know.
The rest of this article is going to bring you all the known and unknown information related to a potential season 2 of Odd Taxi. 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 great anime series.
Odd Taxi Season 2 Release Date
The first season of Odd Taxi aired between April 6 and June 29, 2021, airing a total of 13 episodes in total. The story received wide acclaim and the show became a very unlikely hit, with fans around the world demanding more; a dub was also ordered, which is proof enough of the show’s popularity.
Now, the first season ended with a cliffhanger, and the manga itself is still ongoing, which means that there is more material to adapt and that there will be more material to adapt once Konomoto writes new chapters.
This means that Odd Taxi is a very likely candidate for a renewal, but we have to disappoint you by saying that a second season of the show has not been confirmed – yet. But, to make things better, we have received news of an anime film coming out on April 1, 2022.
It might be a joke, considering the date, although it would be a very odd one (we apologize, but we had to!), but that’s highly improbable, seeing how the news was even confirmed via Twitter:
Now, we don’t know much about the movie, really, save for the release date, so we don’t know whether it’s going to be a prequel, a sequel, or a standalone story to the anime, but nevertheless, we assume that there will be more material to adapt even after the movie. Having said this, we shouldn’t really expect a third season of Odd Taxi before the end of 2022, but 2023 is a safer bet if you ask us.
Odd Taxi Season 2 Trailer
After going through the basic and essential information, you have probably deduced by yourselves that there is no trailer for the second season of Odd Taxi. Why? Well, it’s simply because the season has not yet even been announced, which – in turn – means that production hasn’t started yet, so there cannot even be a trailer.
We don’t even have a trailer for the confirmed movie yet, so a second-season trailer is still some time away. We do have this oddly (…) interesting visual, though:
As we have discussed, Odd Taxi is definitely a very likely candidate for a renewal, seeing how the manga is quite popular and how the first season ended on a cliffhanger with there being more material to adapt, but until we get a confirmation that a second season is going to be produced, as well a confirmation that production has started, we won’t know when a trailer is going to appear.
Taking into account all of the delays, we could probably wait until late 2022 or even early 2023 to get some info on the new season’s trailer.
Odd Taxi Season 2 Plot
The plot of a potential second season of Odd Taxi is still a mystery. The same applies to the scheduled anime feature set to air in April 2022; we don’t know whether the movie is going to be a prequel, a sequel, or a completely original story, so we cannot guess as to its content.
We know that there is more manga material to adapt, so we do assume that the future installments of the show are going to continue the plot but in what capacity and how exactly – we don’t know yet.
The story of Odd Taxi follows the outline of a mystery novel and is set in a Tokyo inhabited by anthropomorphic animals. The protagonist, Hiroshi Odokawa, is a walrus who leads a relatively normal life; To earn a living he works as a taxi driver, he usually starts a conversation with all his travelers and is not afraid to say what he thinks.
But his life changes after the disappearance of a young student whom he had taken in his vehicle has been reported missing. With the passage of the chapters, the plot becomes more complex and the events continue to follow one another with a disjointed narrative, in which all the characters who have crossed paths with Odokawa over time intervene.
Odd Taxi Season 2 Cast
The cast of Odd Taxi would probably remain mostly the same for a potential season two, mostly because we know that the majority of the main characters continue to appear later in the story.
We actually don’t know if we’ll see a second season of the show, or will the movie conclude the story, but if we do, the cast from season one will probably return (since it will return for the movie), and it includes:
