WHAT IS THE A GALAXY NEXT DOOR SEASON 2 RELEASE DATE?
A Galaxy Next Door Season One aired from 9th April 2023 to 25th June 2023 for 12 episodes.
As of writing, there is no update from studio Asahi Productions on the renewal of A Galaxy Next Door Season 2.
|A Galaxy Next Door Season 1||9th April 2023|
|A Galaxy Next Door Season 2||Yet to be Announced|
Production Studios consider various financial and commercial metrics before announcing a renewal.
As mentioned earlier, A Galaxy Next Door Season One was a relative success but could not manage to break into the top-rated Spring 2023 anime list.
Initially showing promise, the anime encountered a decline in quality as the episodes progressed, as evidenced by its inconsistent IMDB user ratings.
|A Galaxy Next Door Season Episode 1||7.3|
|A Galaxy Next Door Season Episode 2||7.2|
|A Galaxy Next Door Season Episode 3||7.0|
|A Galaxy Next Door Season Episode 4||6.9|
|A Galaxy Next Door Season Episode 5||6.8|
|A Galaxy Next Door Season Episode 6||7.3|
|A Galaxy Next Door Season Episode 7||7.2|
|A Galaxy Next Door Season Episode 8||7.8|
|A Galaxy Next Door Season Episode 9||8.1|
|A Galaxy Next Door Season Episode 10||7.9|
|A Galaxy Next Door Season Episode 11||7.3|
|A Galaxy Next Door Season Episode 12||7.9|
While the reviews and ratings are mostly in favor, a crucial factor for renewal will be the availability of studio and source material.
Asahi Production is by no means a big production studio and, as a result, can only work on limited projects with limited dates.
Currently, only one anime (B-Project Netsuretsu Love Call) is scheduled for 2023, and the studio is yet to announce any new projects for this year.
Furthermore, the first season adapted three out of the available six volumes, and considering the manga has concluded, it is unlikely that the studio will revisit for a sequel.
All in All, the prospects of A Galaxy Next Door Season 2 are not looking bright.
On the bright side, season one ended with Shiori declaring to marry Ichiro once she becomes self-sufficient, which could be a plotline fan, and the studio would like to continue.
Nevertheless, if the series does get renewed, we can expect updates on A Galaxy Next Door Season 2 Trailer and A Galaxy Next Door Season 2 release date by Spring 2025.

She additionally declines playing with her friends so Fumio will not be distant from everyone else.
Shiori is concerned, and Ichiro acknowledges what’s going on when Machi strangely begins crying, uncovering all that they have been passing up because of cash or Ichiro’s plan for getting work done.

She decides to enter a publishing contest for industry newcomers, full of confidence, positive that nothing could possibly bring her down.
