What are we expecting from season 2?
This time a new dragon named Ilulu, who will be played by Tomomi Mineuchi, participates in the celebration.

“Weird Dragon Maid is back! The dragon leaves for Ryuto to be Miss Kobayashi’s maid. She occasionally (that’s a lie, often) gets in trouble causing problems for her beloved Miss Kobayashi, but she’s just mediocre, while integrating into human society. Their fellow dragons, Lucoa, Kanna, Elma, and Fafnir have found already found a suitable place for themselves and enjoy intermingling with the humans. It fell on Miss Xiaolin to fight the new dragon. “
Why was the new season delayed for so long?
The second season of the series was originally announced in 2019, and there is a very tragic reason for the delay. The play was produced by Kyoto Animation, and the first season was directed by Takemoto Yashiro. In addition to Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid, Takemoto has also participated in other shows such as Air, Haruhi Suzumiya, Lucky Star, etc. Unfortunately, she was one of the victims of the Kyoto animation arson incident in 2019, which caused 36 deaths and injured 33. Coupled with the global pandemic, this has caused the sequel to the series to be greatly delayed compared to the planned production and release.
Kyoto Animation will once again take over the show, and most of the staff will return. Tatsuya Ishihara is the new director, although Takemoto retained his credit for the series after his death. Yamada Yuka, Ito Masumi, Kadowaki Mihisa, and Maruki Nobuaki return, serving as script producers, music compositions, character designs, and animation directors, respectively. The music will continue the catchy tune trend of the first season, with the opening of the Fhána band, “Ai no Supreme!”. In addition, Super Chorogons would provide the ending song called “Maid With Dragons”.
