Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid Season 2 - Release Date, New Trailer, Staff

Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid is back and has its release date set - everything we know on season 2, including new character Ilulu.

Anime Pony Canyon held a special stream for Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid on February 23, revealing a brand new trailer for season 2, whose release date is set for July 2021.

The second season is officially titled Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon S in Japanese, and Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid S in English.

The trailer is particularly fun as it features all the characters rapping, trying to figure out what the S in the title means. The seiyuu all did a particularly great job with the rap.

The end of the trailer also introducrd a new character coming in Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid Season 2, Ilulu voiced by Tomomi Mineuchi.

Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon Intro

Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon is originally a manga by Cool Kyoushinja, ongoing since 2013 and with 10 volumes so far. It’s basically part of the monster musume boom, a comedy focusing on friendship and yuri with several dragon girls. However, it also has several deep themes and messages, focusing on human society.

Cool Kyoushinja is known for having several manga in publication simultaneously, either handling the scenario, art, or both roles. He’s most notably the author of Peach Boy Riverside, which is also getting an anime adaptation in July 2021. It’s very rare for a mangaka or a light novel author to have two anime adaptations of their work ongoing at the same time. One particularly popular author which already achieved that is Reki Kawahara. Back in late 2012, the anime adaptations of both Sword Art Online and Accel World, two of his novels, were airing at the same time.
