As of now, the makers have not revealed any kind of synopsis or brief which could lead us into the storyline or plot of Wotakoi: Love is Hard for Otaku Season 2. Without any precise detail, it would be irrational to predict an exact plot for Wotakoi: Love is Hard for Otaku Season 2.

Wotakoi: Love Is Hard For Otaku Season 2 Cast and Characters
The official cast for Wotakoi: Love is Hard for Otaku Season 2 is not yet announced by the makers. We expect that the upcoming new season might retain most of its cast and characters from the previous season. The characters whom we anticipate to mark their return in Wotakoi: Love is Hard for Otaku Season 2 are –
- Narumi Momose voiced by Arisa Date. The storyline of Wotakoi: Love is Hard for Otaku is focused on the character of Narumi. She was a working woman who worked at a reputed company. She was a fujoshi otaku who loved otome games and idols. Sometimes she blames being an otaku for all the difficulties and struggles in her life. She even wanted to keep her otaku identity a secret in order to maintain a balance in her professional life. She was also the childhood friend and girlfriend of Hirotaka Nifuji.
- Hirotaka Nifuji voiced by Kent Ito and Mutsumi Tamura (Young Hirotaka). Hirotaka was the childhood and otaku friend of Narumi Momose. They have been together for a long time and Hirotaka developed feelings for Narumi during childhood. Hirotaka was a free otaku gamer who spent most of his time playing games. It was through otaku that Hirotaka and Narumi came closer and finally formed a mutual relationship. He was carefree unlike Narumi, it didn’t matter to him if somebody recognised his otaku identity. He had pride in being an otaku gamer. His character was portrayed as someone who was very attractive to the office ladies but he remained loyal to Narumi Momose.
- Hanako Koyanagi voiced by Miyuki Sawashiro. Hanako also worked at the same office as Narumi and Hirotaka. She was also an otaku player who cosplayed as males in most of her games. She also kept her identity secret but was famous in the otaku world. Hanako kept reading some manga during office hours.
- Taro Kabakura voiced by Tomakazu Sugita. Taro Kabakura was the co-worker of Narumi and Hirotaka. He was also an otaku player but his interest was not as intense as Narumi, Hirotaka and Hanako. Taro was married to Hanako and was happy spending his life with her.
- Naoya Nifuji voiced by Yuki Kaji. Naoya was the younger brother of Hirotaka. He was an energetic and cheerful university student. He deeply cared for his elder brother and shared an emotional bond with him. Naoya was not an otaku like his brother, Hirotaka. His character was depicted as more of an introvert and shy person.
- Ko Sakuragi voiced by Aoi Yuki. Ko belonged to the same university as Naoya. She was an otaku gaming freak. Her characteristic qualities were illustrated as a bit complicated in this anime series. Her gaming abilities reminded Naoya of his brother and he made her meet Hiroataka for the same reason.
A few more characters might also be introduced in Wotakoi: Love is Hard for Otaku Season 2. Unfortunately, we don’t have any information regarding those new characters. We will update you once the makers have made any kind of announcement regarding that note.
