The anime did not end in a cliffhanger which is a relief since if it did, we would all be begging the producers to release a new date for the anime. The anime had no real direction and was solely created for fans to break from their stressful lives and enjoy an anime. Aniplex and A-1 pictures did announce a date for its Season 2; back in 2019, the anime was supposed to be released at the end of 2020, but the global pandemic further shifted the anime release date, and we are waiting for the producers to tell the date for its release.

We can expect a different twist in Season 2 as the two siblings got a new competitor in the manga industry whose giving them a run for their money. They both need to work together to beat their new competitor at their own game.
