Ya Boy Kongming is a Japanese manga series penned by Yuto Yotsuba and characterized by Ryo Ogawa. It began serialization on Kondansha’s Comic Days website from December 2019 to November 2021 and soon after, in Weekly Young Magazine. An anime series adaptation of the same name by Studio P.A. Works was released from March to June 2022.
Upon release, the anime series gained huge popularity and amassed fans from around the world. Now that the first season ended, fans are wondering when the next season will be out. Without wasting any more time, let’s find out in the deets below.
Is Season 2 of Ya Boy Kongming renewed?
Unfortunately, the anime series has yet to be renewed by Studio P.A. Works for another season run. As of now, no update has been provided from either the creators of the studio regarding the prospect of the show but given the popularity of its debut season and the audience reactions, a second season is definitely on the cards. So what we can do right now is to watch out for the official announcements.
Will there be a Season 2 of Ya Boy Kongming?
As mentioned earlier, Ya Boy Kongming has not been greenlit by the studio yet for a second installment. However, we can say this with the conviction that the future looks bright and fans need not fret as it is most definitely that a second season of the anime series will be released.
Nonetheless, fans probably won’t have to wait that long before Ya Boy Kongming is back with a whole new batch of episodes.
Coming back to the release date, it’s not exactly known about the specific air date for the second season. The first season which consisted of 12 episodes was launched on April 5, 2022, and ended on June 21, 2022.
To be precise, the anime series adaptation was initially delayed to November 2021 and finally debuted in April 2022 meaning the production process took around six months, although pre-production already began several months back before it was officially announced. So we guess that the second season will be out in mid or late 2023.
Are there enough source materials for Season 2 of Ya Boy Kongming?
As we know that there’s no concrete information about the second season but we can say for a certain fact that there is plenty of source material and hence, a second season will be produced.
If you ask me, why am I so sure about the series returning? Well, the most valid reason would be the source material, and currently, the light novel series has enough content to adapt another season or more for the anime series.
The first season consists of 12 episodes covered between two to four manga chapters while the finale is adapted up to chapter 28 from the manga series as is the final installment of the ‘Battle of 109’ arc. Which points out that Ya Boy Kongming can adapt up to three seasons consisting of 12 episodes each.

Because we don’t want to spoil too much for the manga non-readers, we’ll just give out a teensy bit of spoilers regarding the upcoming season.
