  1. I also had a feeling that there must be a second series because the last episode gave this impression : none of the events and/or relations had a clear direction, and I wonder as well if a second part is in the making or being dubbed.

  2. To whom it may concern, I am a big fan of Kapalicarsi ( Grand Bazaar)

    I am just wondering if there is Part 2! cause the ending was mysterious… Could you please inform me with all the latest !?
