In anime, it's usual to see two unique characters come together to create a memorable alliance. When two characters from different anime programmes come to know each other through the slow-burn relationship they choose to pursue, it's a lovely thing. Despite the fact that their colleagues, coworkers, and family members constantly exclaim how obvious those feelings are, two heroes usually take their time realising how profoundly they care for one another.
Fortunately, because “Uzaki-chan Wants to Hang Out!” is recognised for its comedic moments, viewers don't mind if the protagonists of the series take their time sorting out their feelings.
The original manga series written and drawn by Taking was released in 2017 and chronicles the exploits of lonesome introvert Shinichi and exuberant high school classmate Hana as they strive to make the most of their short time together (via Anime News Network). The series' anime adaptation, which debuted in 2020, was not long in coming. Following the conclusion of the first season, a trailer confirming a second season was released, so fans didn't have to wait long to find out if the show will resume after that.

Kadokawa has released a teaser trailer for Season 2 of Uzazki-chan Wants to Hang Out!, offering fans a sneak peek at what's in store for the forthcoming season.
The colourful members of the titular character's family are highlighted in the trailer. Her mother Tsuki is voiced by Saori Hayami (My Senpai is Annoying), her father Fujio is Hideo Ishikawa (Pandora in the Crimson Shell: Ghost Urn), her brother Kiki is Yuko Sanpei, and her younger sister Yanagi is Seina Kato on her anime voice acting debut. Season 2 of Uzaki-chan Wants to Hang Out! will premiere later this year, according to the trailer.
Naomi Zora (World Trigger) and Kenji Akabane (The World's Finest Assassin Gets Reincarnated in Another World as an Aristocrat) have been announced to reprise their roles as Hana Uzaki and Shinichi Sakurai, respectively. Kazuya Miura, the anime's director, will return alongside Manabu Kurihara, the character designer, and Takashi Aoshima (No Game, No Life), the series composition supervisor.
Take's manga Uzaki-chan Wants to Hang Out! is an ongoing romantic comedy series serialised on Niconico Seiga's Dra Dra Sharp website. It was first published on the site in December 2017, and there are now seven volumes of information in the series. Seven Seas Entertainment has licenced the manga in North America, and the first season of the anime adaptation by ENGI began in September 2020.
The story follows Uzaki-chan (also known as Hana), a second-year college student who, due to her height, is occasionally mistaken for an elementary school kid. She is ecstatic to learn that she would be attending the same university as Shinichi, her high school senior, but she is dismayed to learn that he has become a reclusive hermit. Regardless of his emotions on the matter, Hana decides to save him from his solitude and introduce him to a joyful lifestyle, but as she spends more time with Shinichi, romantic feelings begin to grow.
Crunchyroll, Prime Video, and Funimation are currently streaming Season 1 of Uzaki-chan Wants to Hang Out!
Season 2: Release Date Uzaki-chan Wishes to Hang Out!
Uzaki-chan Is Itching to Meet Up! The show premiered on July 10, 2020, but with just 12 episodes, viewers were eager to see more of Hana's slice-of-life shenanigans. Thankfully, a new season of the show is in the works, but viewers will have to wait a bit longer. The second season will be released in 2022, according to a tweet from Funimation. Fans can expect a Winter 2022 Anime season release in January 2022 at the earliest, however, Funimation did not mention a specific date.
Otherwise, Season 2 may follow Season 1's summer debut schedule and begin in July 2022. The second season of “Uzaki-chan Wants to Hang Out!” appears to be set to air in Japan, but that does not mean that Western audiences will be left out. Season 1 of the anime was streamed live in Japan via Funimation. The fact that the company tweeted about Season 2 indicates that they intend to re-stream the show after it airs in other areas.
Who are the characters in Season 2 of Uzaki-chan Wants to Hang Out!?
Shinichi Sakurai, a college loner, and Hana Uzaki, one of his underclassmen, were introduced in Season 1 of “Uzaki-chan Wants to Hang Out!” They were high school classmates who, by chance, ended up attending the same college. Hana made it her mission to break Shinichi out of his shell, much to Shinichi's chagrin, but the two became fast friends. Both series actors will return in Season 2, despite their continued denial of their feelings for one another. The majority of Season 1's supporting cast will return.
This group includes Shinichi's close buddy Itsuhiko Sakaki and his café employee, Ami Asai. Itsuhiko and Ami teamed up in the previous season to try to bring Hana and Shinichi together romantically. We can probably expect their romantic attempts to continue in the second season.
When it comes to new character appearances on television in the future season, we might see more of Hana's family. Hana's mother, Tsuki Uzaki, made a cameo last season, as did Hana's younger brother, Kiri Uzaki, in the season finale.
Yunagi Uzaki, Hana's younger sister, will be introduced in Season 2 according to a key image on the official animation site. Her bangs obstruct her vision as she stands in the shadows, keeping an eye on her older sister and Shinichi. This hints that Hana's father, Fujio Uzaki, may also appear, bringing the anime series' family reunion to a close with her siblings and mother.
