Shinigami Bocchan to Kuro Maid Manga Compared To Anime
Koharu Inoue began the serialization of this manga series on October 3, 2017. Since then, he has published a total of 13 volumes, and the manga is still on the run. The first season of the anime did skip several scenes from the manga. However, all the scenes they skipped were mostly short slice-of-life stories and comedic moments that were not necessary to advance its storyline. Overall, the anime remained faithful to the manga, and its pacing was also good.
Throughout the run of twelve episodes, the anime used a total of 67 chapters. Its first season finale found its stopping point at Volume 5. The great thing is that JC Staff still has more than enough source material to make The Duke of Death And His Maid Season 2. They can use the content from the remaining eight books to create the plot of the anime’s sequel.
The Duke of Death And His Maid Season 2: Renewal Status
The inaugural installment of this romantic comedy performed really great in terms of both ratings and popularity. At the time of writing, it holds a good score of 7.29 on MyAnimeList. Shinigami Bocchan to Kuro Maid is quite popular, too, as it has more than 119K members in its MAL group. The critical reception of this show is also positive. They praised this show for its engaging storyline and intriguing characters.
Also, the anime’s first installment ended with a cliffhanger that clearly indicates there is still a lot of things left to tell. Therefore, the chances are very good that the makers will give the green light to The Duke of Death And His Maid Season 2. Also, the fact that its source material is still on the run increase the chances of its renewal even more.
The Duke of Death And His Maid Season 2: Release Date
On average, an anime season takes at least one or one and a half years for its production. It is likely that the sequel of Shinigami Bocchan to Kuro Maid will also take the same amount of time.

If that happens, The Duke of Death And His Maid Season 2 might release by the end of 2022 or around early 2023.
