So far, Absolute Duo Season 2 has not been officially announced, so there is no release date for the second season of this anime, but the question is if there will be an Absolute Duo Season 2 and when it will be released.
Here’s everything we know so far regarding whether or not there will be a new season of Absolute Duo and when it will be released.
The anime series Absolute Duo, known as Abusoryūto Duo in Japanese, is based on a popular light novel of the same name that was first published in 2012. The Absolute Duo light novel series is written by Takumi Hiiragiboshi and illustrated by Yū Asaba.
Absolute Duo is a great fantasy-harem anime series with action elements loved by people worldwide, which follows Tooru Kokonoe, who hopes that attending the Koryo Academy helps him gain power after his sister and friends were slain by a mysterious man.
The anime television series Absolute Duo has only had one season so far directed by Atsushi Nakayama and animated by Studio Eight Bit. There is no word on whether the studio or director will be returning for Absolute Duo s2.
The first 12-episode Absolute Duo television anime series premiered in Japan in January 2015. Since then, this series has amassed a sizable fan base that is still waiting for Absolute Duo Season 2 Episode 1 or some sort of sequel.
Will there be Absolute Duo Season 2?
Absolute Duo Season 2 will almost certainly never happen. Absolute Duo, unfortunately, was not a profitable anime adaptation. That is why the second season of this anime was never announced, and why it is really unlikely that it will ever be.
The Absolute Duo anime didn’t make any profit. Absolute Duo Blu-Ray sales average around 1,200 copies, which is low, and there is practically almost no merchandise or figures made for this series. Also, the last volume of the light novel sold only around 10,000, and that after the anime adaptation, so I don’t think there is any hope for Absolute Duo season 2.
The unfortunate thing is that there is still enough material to adapt for a new season. In Japan, there are 11 volumes available, but only four have been adapted thus far. Based on what is currently available, one to two extra seasons could be animated, but a sequel to this series has a near 0% chance of happening.
Absolute Duo Season 2 Release Date
There is no official release date for Absolute Duo Season 2 because a second season was never confirmed, canceled, or announced, so there is no countdown, and a release date is pretty doubtful to be ever announced because a second season will most likely never get announced.
I would love to say that there is still some chance of this series getting a new season and a release date. However, after researching how well the anime did and the fact that the Absolue Duo light novels have already concluded, I believe the chances are close to 0% in 2021. Nothing about this series appears to be profitable enough for a second season and there is nothing to promote anymore since the series is finished.
We will update this post if there is any news or a release date for a new Absolute Duo anime project on the Absolute Duo official Twitter account. If you’ve given up hope that a new Absolute Duo season will ever be released, you can start reading the light novel from volume 5 since the anime covered volumes 1 to 4.

Last Thoughts on Absolute Duo Season 2
Many anime fans would be thrilled if Absolute Duo anime Season 2 was announced, but it will most likely never happen. I would recommend you to go read the light novels if you want to continue the story of Absolute Duo because a second season is not happening.
