Anime fans are now excited for One Room Season 2. Now, they have more reasons to celebrate as the series' official website dropped major spoilers about the show's staff, visuals, director, cast, and even release date.
One Room Season 2's Official Cast
As revealed by Anime News Network, One Room Season 2 will have a new cast beginning with Inori Minase.

In spite of that, she does not have a hard time looking for a job, but she still feels disheartened by her situation. A "peculiar meeting" with One Room Season 2's protagonist, who she lives within the same mansion, adds to her frustration. From here, they will start to confide in each other.
Rie Takahashi will be also in One Room Season 2 as Minori Nanahashi, the 17-year-old high school student. She is a happy and lively modern girl who also has a hidden old-fashion side. She loves everything about the town's historic districts and culture. She even helps her grandfather manage the Nanahashi Yu bathhouse every single day and has a sibling-like relationship with the show's protagonist.
Lastly, M.A.O will return to One Room Season 2 as Yui Hanasaka, the 17-year-old girl who will travel to Tokyo from Hokkaido to try her luck in taking college entrance exams. She is a neat and serious little girl who tries to do everything to the best of her effort. In Tokyo, she will be living with her older sister.
