monster musume season 2


For years, the Japanese government kept from people the secret that mythical creatures such as centaurs, angels, herpes, and lamias existed.


And now all of a sudden these monster girls who are non-human species but have feelings like humans, are living with our protagonist named Kimihito Kurusu.


His parents do not live with him and he was living alone, until the arrival of the monster girls. These are creatures of another world but feel desire, love, and lust like any other human.


One can see now what the story has to offer, numerous beautiful, sexually charged monster girls living with one boy who does not know what to do. 


Season 1 was a success and has a decent fan following. But now everyone is waiting for its second season. So let’s take a look if there is any good news for us. 



Everything we know so far about Monster Musume


The story began three years after the revelation of the truth. With that, the government would have passed the “Interspecies Cultural Exchange Act” which said that the “liminal” is a part of human society, and they can live just like other beings do.


In this world where humans are intertwined with imaginary humans, an exchange plan is created to help mythical humans create a place for themselves within human society.


As part of this project, the young teenager Kimihito wants to share his flat with a group of legendary young women: snake girl Miia, bird girl Poppy, horse girl Centoria and many more.


Kimihito now must take care of all these little girls and see that they do not cause any trouble – but all these girls are in love with Kimihito and will do anything to be with him.

Kimihito is the favourite of all and of course, he might be the main character in the next season.


He is always liked and recognized for his skills in preparing food and stitching. Also, people expect something new about him in the upcoming season.

Papi is Happy always and is the second housemate of humans. She is good-natured, happy, and loved by everyone. She is a lovable character and is always bringing joy to the fans whenever she is on the screen. 


Also, she enjoys playing with local children. Coincident with her physical appearance, Papi is as kind as a bird.


Sora Amamiya as Miia



Having red hair, eyes that are golden with pupils slit vertically and human skin that looks pale, and with all the beautiful copper scales in her snake part of the body, she also had a creamy pink underbelly.


Miia is the first one to live with Kimihito.


Natsuki Aikawa as Centorea

Centorea is the third girl to be with Kimihito and move into the house. Having blonde hair with yellow streaks, pale blue eyes, and a big bust, Centorea is a warrior.


She is half human and half horse or pony. Just like the other two of them staying with Kimihito, Centorea does and is ready to do anything for him.


Mayuka Nomura as Suu

Suu reads others’ thoughts and gets to know them when they come in contact with her.


She is an interesting character. With a slime-like physical structure, she changes her shape and colour according to the situation around her.


She can be whatever she wishes to be. Her cute eyespots glow up just like a cat in some instances.


Also, guess who is the fourth person to join the family? It’s Suu.


Haruka Yamazaki as Mero

This series has every character one could imagine and not imagine. While there is a talking slime, the writer surprises the audience with a mermaid character, Mero.


She is a perfect mermaid that matches everybody’s imagination. She has pinkish hair that matches her fins and beautiful blueish eyes.


Yu Kobayashi as Ms. Smith

Ms. Smith, unlike the other characters, is always inactive and slothful. Being one of the correlators and organizers of the exchange program, she takes up the job of dumping her work to whoever possible.


She is portrayed as a character who never accepts her mistakes, never passes important information to whoever is concerned, and a person who is addicted to coffee.


Saori Onishi as Doppel

Ever imagined what if one could change shapes? Doppel is one like that. Doppel can change herself into any person she wishes to be.


This naughty little girl at times disguises herself as Ms. Smith to punish people.


Ai Kakuma as Lala

Just like a robot, Lala can remove her head from her body. Sometimes, her head automatically falls off her body.


She is another interesting character in the series. Her long blueish-grey hair is her main attraction.


She is like one mythological character from those Irish folktales. She is kind and loving.


Sakura Nakamura as Rachnera

There are existing half-human, half-animal characters in almost every cartoon, and there are full humans that can transform themselves with characteristics of some insects.


But Rachnera is a half-human and half-spider. She has a dreadful and disastrous past where she has not been treated well and was abandoned.


But, she is a rule breaker and an intelligent one.


Rei Mochizuki as Zombina

Having the usual characteristics that a zombie has, the Zombina field leads the Monster Ops: Neutralization (MON), or MsSmith’s team, in other words.


This humorous girl loves to watch horror movies and simply freaks Kimihito with all her tricks while he stays calm to most of them.


Momo Asakura as Manako

Manako is a one-eyed woman. She is gentle, polite, and always keeps her cool.


She is introverted and feels less ordinary. Doppel always makes use of her insecurities and pranks her around.


She also loves Kimihito and Kimihito looks into her eyes and treats her well, every time.


Yurika Kubo as Tionishia

Tio is an attractive ogre. Sounds oxymoron right? But that is the fact. She is very tall with a sharp little horn.


She loves to pop and she is girly. She loves to dress up and she always appears to be cute.


Also, in the whole series, she can be found eating snacks all the time. Other than these, other interesting characters might remind people of their friends or cousins or sometimes themselves.


The characters act unbelievably, and unimaginably but in the end, they become one among them and they become one among the viewers.



Other Decisive Factors for Monster Musume Season 2


Even though the story and characters are a plus, some people hated the physical portrayal of the characters.


Also, through the episodes, some fillers dragged the episodes that were to be finished earlier.


And there were a lot of variations between the manga and the series.


Monster Musume Ending Explained

Finally, Kimihito reveals that he is not ready to marry either of the three, who were living with him.


And that was a better way to end this series. This series has kept that consistency of going from some sort of action to light-hearted humour.


That has made people love the series overall and want the team to make a new season.


Trailer of Monster Musume Season 2


Since there are no words about season 2, you have to wait for the official announcement. Most likely, an announcement will unveil a teaser or trailer.


The controversy around Monster Musume

  • There were hard controversies stating that it seemed so much amateurish in writing compared with other harem series.
  • Also, there were talks that the romance and chemistry between Kimihito Kurusu and Miia was a total bore. 
  • People felt that as the thread and name may hint, the series heavily concentrates on barbarity. This might lead to certain people having a bad taste in their mouths.
  • And, the show exposed a lot of breasts that felt more like Hentai anime rather than a Harem series. 
  • By most people, Kimihito Kurusu is portrayed as a boring, dull, and uninspiring main character. His character could be enhanced more and in an established way.
