The famous Japanese Comedy Anime TV Series “Hinamatsuri” is based on the Manga Series by Masao Otake, who is both the writer and the illustrator of the Manga. Season 1 of the series became on air on April 6, 2018, and ended later in June in the same year. Three years since then, and the fans are still awaiting a show’s sequel.
The show was popular in the comedy genre and received a massive response from the audience globally. It also premiered on Netflix, which was the reason for its global fan base. The creators of the show have zipped their lips about the sequel. However, there is now news of cancellation also. Thus, we can keep our hopes alive.
Also, it is normal for an Anime to take two to three years to release an installment, unlike US TV Dramas, which are aired back to back.
The Plot: What Can We Expect In Hinamatsuri Season 2?
The story revolves around a criminal named Yoshifumi Nitta, a mid-level Yazuka of Ashikava-Gumi Gang, and a girl named Hina with some Psychokinetic powers.
The life of Nitta takes an upside-down turn when from nowhere, this girl, Hina, falls on his head. She tells that she is from the future, and unknowingly Nitta becomes her guardian. Hina, who is supernatural, has no control over her powers and sometimes causes destruction.
When his gang members accuse Nitta of attacking their gang leader, he is ordered to kill the rival to prove his loyalty to the Ashikava-Gumi. When Hina, with her powers, helps Nitta destruct the enemy, they realize they need each other.
The situation worsens when more girls from the future arrive to take Hina back. Season 2 is expected to carry the story further where we might learn if Nitta and Hina are still together or she moves back with the girls.
The final episode of the story leaps three years ahead. So, it would be interesting to see the father-daughter duo again with some new twists.
We can expect Hina to meet Hitoshi, the son of other Yazuka members, and it can serve as a romantic interest.
Hinamatsuri Season 2: Who Is The Cast?
There is no official announcement yet about season 2 and its cast. However, we know who is going to return as their characters. Takako Tanaka as Hina, Yoshiki Nakajima as Yoshifumi, Ri Murkava as Anju, Kade Hondo as Hitomi, Yoko Hikasa as Utako, Ari Ozawa as Mao, Hidekatsu Shibata as Yoshihiko, Tsuoshi Koyma as Kyoshi, and Kongo Kavanishi as Soap.
Do we have enough resources for the Second season?
The anime series began in 2010 and ended last year in 2020. In the previous decade, creators have only covered the nine volumes of the Manga for the plot of season 1, and the later ten volumes, including the newest 18th and 19th, are untouched. So, we can keep our hopes high as there is enough source material for season 2.
Feel Studio, responsible for the production of Hinamatsuri, is likely to produce its sequel. However, there is no prediction about the same from them. We can still expect them to compile the remaining volumes by Masao and provide the fans the closure they want.

Hinamatsuri Season 2- Release Date
The finale of season 1 aired in June 2018. Even after three years, there is no green light to season 2. The fans are desperate for a season 2 after the super hit response for season 1. There have been numerous petitions to release season 2, which have more than a thousand signatures.
So, we know that creators are considering a season 2. However, to predict a date is not in our hands. However, a little birdie tells us that it might be coming around later in 2022 or 2023.
