Is Buddy Daddies Season 2 possible?

Buddy Daddies stole our hearts with its heartwarming story of two assassins-turned-daddies, Kazuki and Rei, raising the adorable Miri.

Fans everywhere fell in love with their chaotic yet loving family. The show ended, but our hearts still yearn for more adventures with this unlikely trio.

So, the big question is: will we see Kazuki, Rei, and Miri again in Buddy Daddies Season 2?

Buddy Daddies Recap:

Buddy Daddies is packed with action, heart, and a lot of baby formula!

We start off meeting Kazuki Kurusu, a charismatic ladies' man who is also a skilled assassin. His partner in crime (and roommate) is Rei Suwa, a stoic and efficient killer who prefers video games to socializing with others. Together, they're an unstoppable team.

Their lives drastically turn when they cross paths with Miri Unasaka, a sweet and innocent four-year-old girl whose father is a major mafia boss.

After a chaotic encounter, Kazuki and Rei find themselves responsible for Miri's safety and well-being. Just like that, they become the most unlikely dads on the planet.

From that moment on, it's a whirlwind of diaper changes, bedtime stories, and trying to maintain their secret double lives!

We watch as Kazuki Kurusu and Rei Suwa struggle to adapt to parenthood, all while dealing with the dangers of their profession. There are hilarious mishaps, heartwarming bonding moments, and even a few tears shed along the way.

The bond between the three of them grows stronger with each passing episode, proving that family isn't always about blood but the love and care you share.

We see Kazuki and Rei grow as individuals and as parents. We even get to see Miri all grown up and in high school!

Will We Be Getting a Season 2?

While a second season sounds amazing, there are some hurdles to jump over.

Unlike anime based on manga or light novels, Buddy Daddies is an original story. This means there's no source material to follow, making a continuation a bit trickier.

It’s a lot like Yuri on Ice. That was an original anime that became a cult classic and smash hit. But instead of a season 2 or the promised prequel, the movie gets canceled instead.

Another challenge is the money and time it takes to make anime. Animation is expensive and requires a lot of talented people working together. It's like a giant puzzle, and scheduling all the pieces can be tough.

Finally, it all comes down to the creators. Do they have more stories to tell about Kazuki, Rei, and Miri? Do they want to dive back into this world? We'll have to wait and see what the creative team has for us.

Does Buddy Daddies Deserve a Season 2?

The answer: yes, it does!

Let's face it: Buddy Daddies was a hit!

Fans couldn't get enough of the hilarious mishaps and heartfelt moments between Kazuki, Rei, and Miri. The show scored high ratings and rave reviews, and the Buddy Daddies fandom is still going strong.

But there's more to the story, right? Season 1 left us with some unanswered questions. What happens next for our favorite assassin dads? Will their past come back to haunt them? How will Miri grow up with two dads who are, well, a little unconventional? There's so much potential for more heartwarming chaos and character development.

Plus, who doesn't love a good-found family story? Buddy Daddies is a ray of sunshine in a world full of dark and gritty anime. We're all craving more feel-good stories that warm our hearts and make us laugh. Buddy Daddies Season 2 could be just what we need.
