Love Of Kill Season 2: Renewed Or Cancelled? + Plot Spoilers 

Love of Kill Season 2, when will it release?

During the winter 2022 anime season, a few big shows, such as Demon Slayer and Attack on Titan for action and My Dress up Darling for romance, dominated the discussion.

While browsing some of the more overlooked shows this season, one came across a show that promised to combine both as the anime adaption of Fe s’ manga series, Love of Kill, hit the screens.

The show’s basic premise is that there’s a woman Chateau Dankworth who’s a bounty hunter, and a man Song Ryang-ha who’s an assassin. 

Their lives intersect on a certain job wherein Song begins following and brokering her information in exchange for a date. 

But soon enough, they realize their arrangement may need to end as the past begins their lives and consequently puts them at risk.

Love of Kill Season one was received with a mixed reception as some fans enjoyed the bounty hunter-assassin dynamic while others could not be invested in the characters at all.

Either way, Love of Kill had its takers who are wondering if a second installment is on the cards or not?

Studio Platinum Vision isn’t one of the big production houses, and they notoriously have followed one anime per year release schedule since 2016 without any sequels.

Additionally, Studio Platinum Vision s’ next project, I’m in Love with the Villainess anime, is already scheduled for the 2023 release, and consequently, it looks unlikely Love of Kill Season 2 will be happening in 2023 or go forth with a renewal.

The only positive point going in favor of a renewal is that the second half of Chateau Noble’s story needs to be animated in order for the anime experience to be fulfilling. 

Nevertheless the studio does decide to renew Love of Kill for season two, then we can expect the Love of Kill Season 2 trailer and Love of Kill Season 2 release date in 2024.
