Otaku Elf Season 2: Renewal Status + Release Date Predictions

Otaku Elf Season 2, renewal status explored!

Fantasy comedies are typically set in imaginary worlds which involve puns and parodies at the expense of magical characters.

One such comedy series was privy to the Spring 2023 slate when the anime adaption of Akihiko Higuchi s’ manga series, Otaku Elf, hit the small screens.

The story follows a 16-year-old Koito Koganei who has recently become a miko or a shrine maiden at the Takamimi Shrine.

For centuries, the Takamimi Shrine has been situated in Tokyo, wherein a magical elf named Elda is enshrined from another world.

The immortal elf is served by 15 generations by Koito s’ family, and as Miko now, the responsibility falls on her shoulders.

However, things are not easy as it seems since Elda is a total shut-in who spends most of her days playing video games, collecting toys, and eating snacks.

Elda s’ shut-in behavior is attributed to a traumatic experience in her childhood wherein a boy accidentally taunted her about her ears 60 years ago, thus confining her within the shrine s’ boundaries.

Koito must find the balance between her school life and Miko’s duties while also getting Elda comfortable with the outside world.

Along the way, Koito also learns the history of the shrine and why Elda is worshipped by the locals.

Otaku Elf Season One was a relative success as fans enjoyed the unique premise and comedic plotlines featuring the two main characters.

After the conclusion of season one, many were wondering if there would be a second installment or not.

To find the answer, keep scrolling as we bring you all the latest news and updates on Otaku Elf Season 2.

Otaku Elf is rated 7.3/10 and ranked #2569 with 45k members on MyAnimeList

As of writing, there is no update from studio C2C on the renewal of Otaku Elf Season 2.

Production Studios consider various financial and commercial metrics before announcing a renewal.

As mentioned earlier, Otaku Elf Season One was well-received by fans and critics; however, the fantasy comedy series could not break into the top-rated animes of the Spring 2023 slate.

Nevertheless, the anime manages to keep the viewers interested throughout its run, which is further evidenced by its IMDB user episode rating.

While the reviews and ratings are favorable, a crucial factor for renewal will be the availability of studio and source material.

Studio C2C has produced animes like Handyman Saitō in Another World, Reincarnated as a Sword, and Tsukimichi Moonlit Fantasy.

However, Studio C2C is not a big production house and, consequently, is yet to produce a sequel for any of its past releases. 

The lack of renewals from studio C2C for sequels could spell bad news for fans hoping for Otaku Elf Season 2.

The first season not only skipped some small events and rearranged chapters, but it also added new anime-only content.

The anime adapted 68 out of 122 available chapters, but with the manga ongoing, creators should not face any problems with regard to lack of source material.

All in All, if the studio decides to break its no-renewal policy, then we can expect some updates on Otaku Elf Season 2 Trailer and Otaku Elf Season 2 release date by Spring 2024.

Otaku Elf Season 2 PLOT

In the finale of Otaku Elf Season One, “This is My Shrine Deity,” after some practice sessions, Koito attempts the Oyuki ritual but misses the first two shots.

On the third try, she points the arrow to the sky and fires, but suddenly Elda jumps off the boat she is standing on and catches it with the target she is holding, which hits right in the middle.

The parishioners offer a food stall gourmet as a result. Days later, Elda has been encountering one bad situation after the other. 

Fearing she is cursed, she decides to purify herself by doing the Tsujiura ritual with Koito.

But when Koyuzu comes along asking what Elda would want for dinner, she has an “oracle.” 

Elda then asks Koyuzu for a seabream dinner with the aim of making its cheekbones a lucky charm. 

All Koyuzu had was mackerel, though, but it is enough. They put it to the test using the fortune-telling slips. 

With a bit of encouragement from Koito and Koyuzu, Elda gets a good fortune slip. However, they are busted by Koito and Koyuzu’s grandfather.

Otaku Elf Season one adapted the first 68 chapters of the manga, which means Otaku Elf Season 2 will begin by adapting chapter 69.

When a baby suddenly appears at the shrine, Elda, the resident deity and homebody, and her miko, Koito, are entirely out of their depth.

Left to watch over their baby niece in their sister’s absence, Koito and sister Koyuzu sure do have their hands full with the active toddler. 

Just when they think the crazy spectacle is over, Elda has somehow managed to trigger a town-wide dance fad, gotten worked up over improperly minted coins, and even gotten a haircut. What will their self-indulgent deity get up to next?!
