There is no official release date for Absolute Duo Season 2, so there is no way to know when it will be released. Despite the lack of an official release date, it is unclear whether there will be a second season.
Here are the latest updates on Absolute Duo, including whether a new season will be released and when to expect it.
Absolute Duo is an anime series that is based on a famous light novel of the same name which was first published in 2012. It is also known as Abusoryūto Duo in Japanese. The writer of the Absolute Duo light novel series is Takumi Hiiragiboshi and it is illustrated by Yū Asaba.
Anime series Absolute Duo with fantasy-harem elements combined with action elements is the most popular series and has many fans around the world. The story is about Tooru Kokonoe, who join the Koryo Academy by hoping to make himself storing so that he can avenge the death of his friends and a younger sister named Otoha.
So far, an anime television series Absolute Duo has only one season aired from 4 Jan 2015 to 22 Mar 2015 by Studio Eight Bit. The series was 1st aired on AT-X, but then it aired on Sun Television, Tokyo MX, and some other broadcasting channels. After a week, Crunchchyroll starts streaming to the rest of the world including Europe, Africa, and the Middle East.
Will Absolute Duo will return for Season 2? I think the studio and director might not return for the second season because they didn’t say a single word about Absolute Duo s2. Although, fans around the world are still waiting for Absolute Duo Season 2 Episode 1 or any sequel.

Will There Be Absolute Duo Season 2?
For every anime series, there are two factors that involve in the release of the next season of the anime which are the profit that the previous season made and the source material for the anime such as Light Novels and Manga. Unfortunately, the 1st season of Absolute Duo wasn’t profitable at all.
Since there is less profit, we can say that Absolute Duo Season 2 will not happen. The sales of Absolute Duo Blu-Ray are around 1200 copies, which is extremely low. Also, very little merchandise or figures were made for this series.
Let’s talk about Absolute Duo Light Novels and Manga. There were only 10,000 copies sold of the last volume of the light novel even after the adaptation of the anime.
Yet, there is enough source material is available for this anime series. The first season of Absolute Duo adapted the first four light novel volumes as there is a total of 11 light novel volumes and four manga published so far. One to two new seasons can be animated for this anime series.
The only failure of Absolute Duo anime is profit and due to this, there is no chance of happening Season 2. Also, the studio and director didn’t announce any news about season 2 of Absolute Duo.
Release Date of Absolute Duo Season 2
Absolute Duo Season 2 has not been officially announced or confirmed since the studio and director didn’t say anything about that. So, the second season is unlikely to release.
According to the facts and research, we can say that the anime did a very good job to entertain the fans but due to low profit it made and the chances of the second season or even the third season of the Absolute Duo are much low. Also, the light novel series is complete so there is no light novel that can be released in the future. That’s why the series is finished and there is nothing to promote.
We’ll update this post if we find out any official statement on the Absolute Duo official Twitter account regarding the release of the second season. But if you still want to know the story after the anime, you can start reading from Light Novel volume 5 to 11 because 1st season adapted only volumes 1 ~ 4 of the light novel.
Check some of my research on some of the anime sequels. Below are some examples:
