Muse Asia announced on Saturday that it has licensed the second season of the television anime of so-ma-to‘s Shadows House manga. Muse Asia will announce distribution details at a later date.

The second season will premiere in July, and will feature returning cast and staff.

Returning cast members include:

  • Akari Kitō as Kate
  • Yū Sasahara as Emilico
  • Ayane Sakura as Louise / Lou
  • Kōdai Sakai as John / Shaun
  • Reiji Kawashima as Patrick / Ricky

Creators so-ma-to had noted it was said during the first season (when they supervised the scripts) that there would be only one cours (quarter of the year) for the anime. The creators added that a new season means they would have to supervise scripts once again while still serializing the manga, but vowed to do their best.

The first season premiered in April 2021. Animax Asia aired the anime in September 2021.

The manga’s story is set in a Western-style mansion on a cliff and centers on the aristocratic, faceless Shadow family. They live together with lifelike doll attendants who serve as their faces. The story focuses on the daily lives of the house’s inhabitants and gradually reveals its mysteries.

Kazuki Ohashi (episode director for Kakegurui, Girlish Number, Ace Attorney Season 2) directed the series at CloverWorks, and Toshiya Ono (The Promised Neverland, Gatchaman Crowds, tsuritama) oversaw the series scripts. Chizuko Kusakabe (Pumpkin Scissors, Trouble Chocolate) designed the characters, and Kenichiro Suehiro (Cells at Work!, Golden Kamuy, Re:ZERO -Starting Life in Another World-) composed the music.

The manga launched in Weekly Young Jump in September 2018. Shueisha published the manga’s 10th compiled book volume on March 18, and will publish the 11th volume on June 17.
