Only a few months after the end of the dramatic anime Shadows House, the release of season 2 of the hit series has now been confirmed in a new trailer.
When the spring anime series launched in April 2021, fans expected great things from series like The Slime Diaries, Tokyo Revengers and My Hero Academia Season 5.
However, not many viewers expected Shadows House to become one of the most interesting series on all of slate, teasing fans with fabulously intriguing characters and a mysterious plot.
This week at the AnimeJapan 2022 event, the Shadows House season 2 release window was finally confirmed along with a brand new teaser trailer.

While the news of Season 2 was universally welcomed, it wasn’t entirely unexpected. Anime renewals usually depend on two factors; Source material and popularity, of which Shadows House has plenty.
According to a report by anime geek, Season 1 Episode 12 adapted to Volume 4 Chapter 47 in the original manga series. The good news is that at the time of writing, ten have been completed manga Volumes with 126 chapters were published in Japan.
Unfortunately, Funimation does not release official viewership figures for their simulcast series, making it difficult to discern Shadows House’s worldwide popularity.
However, the anime has evidently proved popular enough in Japan to merit a second season, with Shadows House currently scoring a solid 7.4/10 IMDB and 7.75/10 respectively MyAnimeList with over 62,000 reviews.
Previously, there had been concerns about Shadows House season 2 as the anime adaptation had not strictly adapted the manga and completely deviated from the script for certain episodes.
This had fans concerned that the extremely popular final parts of the manga would not be adapted. Luckily the author of the manga addressed those concerns and revealed that changes were made specifically because the anime needed to be adjusted to tell the story correctly.

It was officially confirmed in a press release on January 5, 2022, via Anime News Networkthat Shadows House season 2 would premiere in July 2022 as part of the summer schedule.
