Shadows House is a gothic anime series that first aired in the spring of 2021. The popular anime series also contains a lot of mystery and supernatural elements and has managed to attract the attention of anime lovers with its different style than many romantic anime. The story of the manga is set in a western-style mansion on a cliff, where members of the aristocratic and faceless Shadow family live. They live with a realistic doll that serves as their face. The story is about the daily life of the households and their secrets that slowly come to light. Adapted from the manga written by Japanese manga artist So-ma-to since 2018, the anime is licensed by Funimation and listed with English dubs. The studio of the anime is CloverWorkswho drew popular anime like Wonder Egg Priority and Horimiya in 2021. The anime aired on many local Japanese networks such as Tokyo MX, BS11, GTV, GYT, MBS, BS Asahi, Wowow, FTV from April 11, 2021 to July 4, 2021. The season with a total of 13 episodes is not enough for the fans, and they are now looking forward to a second season† So, is there going to be a second season of the anime?
Will there be a second season of Shadows House?
We previously made predictions based on key factors as to whether the anime will have a new season. However, it seems that none of this was necessary as the official news came. On September 11, 2021, the second season of the anime announced at a live-streamed event for the anime series. The makers have announced that they will do their best for the second season. A flipbook style short film met audiences during the announcement of the anime’s second season.
The anime has been renewed for a second season, but there is no release date for the new season yet. Since the manga script has only just been updated, there will be a long production run. We think the anime will return to audiences in the summer season of 2022† Until then, we suggest you watch similar genre anime Moriarty the patriot and Magia Record† Stay tuned for updates.
Manga status in terms of a second season
Shadows House, like many other anime series, is based on manga series. The manga, the original of the series, was written and illustrated by So-ma-to. Like One Punch Man, the manga will be published by Shueisha on September 6, 2018. The manga series, which reached 8 volumes in July 2021, is still ongoing. Animes are a good product for advertising manga, so it’s good news that the manga is still going on.
On the other hand, in the first season of the anime, the first 5 parts were used as material. The anime comes from the manga line in the final chapters. However, since it still uses manga as its main source material, there doesn’t seem to be enough source material available for a new season at this point. Nevertheless, this shouldn’t be an issue as the manga series continues.
Popularity and the other factors
The anime is not distributed by a major distributor like Netflix or Amazon. Therefore, the sale of discs is important to the fate of the anime. There is no clear data on the sales of discs in the first season yet, but we will receive this data in the coming month and add it to our article. However, given the number of pre-orders on Amazon on July 1, 2021, it seems difficult for the anime to 4,000 disk sales threshold.
Meanwhile, the animes Twitter account is followed by 53k people. It is an average number of followers for a new anime. At this level, we’ve seen a lot of anime get approvals for season two, but this number still needs to be pushed above 100k to increase the possibility.
According to Myanimelist data, it ranks 1352nd in the anime popularity ranking. This means it has a popularity score of 57.2% on our anime list. Myanimelist data shows that anime is not popular enough yet.
