On the other hand, its popularity did not reach many heights. The anime series raises a 7.8 out of 10 in MyAnimeList ratings, whereas IMDb rates the show with a 7.5 out of 10. However, the viewership has been at an all-time low for Akebi’s Sailor Uniform. Plus, MyAnimeList finds only 29k votes in favor of the show, which counts as the lowest-rated show of this Winter (2022).
Although the anime did not receive much attention, the ratings cannot be slept on. The show has a high chance of coming back with such grace numbers.

Thus, the fans might find the series in work very soon. However, it will all depend on the demand for the next season. Plus, since the show did not grasp much attention in western areas, the sales in Japan will also make a huge effort in the show’s return.
Is There Enough Source Material?
Akebi’s Sailor Uniform is an anime series based on a manga of the same name. Now, the good news for all the worrying fans is that the series has enough source material for season 2. The text has a total of 9 volumes in hand. Moreover, it has not ceased publishing more content. Thus, there will be more chapters to adapt to the production announcement. So, the first season has adapted 23 chapters in total. This signifies that the show has animated four volumes for 12 episodes.
However, fans can release a sigh of relief since there are still five more volumes left untouched. Studio Cloverworks is likely to begin adapting from chapter 24 of the manga.
What Will Happen In Season 2?
Akebi’s Sailor Uniform delivered 12 episodes in season 1. The anime adapted 23 chapters in total and will continue its story from chapter 24. Studio Cloverworks has adhered to the plot of the manga. Thus, it is likely that the show will not find any changes in the upcoming season. In the season finale, Akebi had left everyone speechless with her soulful performance. Akebi and Erika both took on stage. While Erika handled the piano, Akebi found herself dancing at the sound of the instruments.
After such a soothing performance, the expectations are very high for the next season. Akebi’s Sailor Uniform Season 2 is likely to dwell once again in the life of Komichi Akebi. As the series progresses, Akebi will find herself in trouble and emotional burnout. However, she will surpass every obstacle gracefully and showcase her determination gladly. This is not all, as her classmates will also find themselves learning many life lessons along their way.
Studio Cloverworks is one of the most occupied production houses at the time of writing. Moreover, it has seven shows airing this year. The schedule is air-tight packed, which might be one of the primary reasons for the lack of updates on Akebi’s Sailor Uniform Season 2. This year’s biggest series, such as My Dress-Up Darling and Spy X Family, is also in its bag. Moreover, Shadow House Season 2 is also set for release. With shows with such high ratings and fan followings in millions, it is likely that the studio will prioritize them foremost.
In addition, the studio needs to give time and dates for the animation of its next project. Thus, the hectic schedule will cause an issue for Akebi’s Sailor Uniform renewal. However, fans shall not lose hope since if the studio announces a renewal, then nothing can stop for the show to return. However, it might take longer than a year for a successful come back.
Can Fans Save The Series?
It is notable that the show did not receive the expected viewership, which will cause a huge problem for its return. However, the ratings are positive, and critics love the show. But it goes without a doubt that the international success solidifies the return of the series. Most of the studios rely on the numbers that the series’ collected overseas to renew the show. Moreover, the manga series did not see an increase in sales after the release of the anime in Japan. Thus, now it all comes down to Akebi’s Sailor Uniform’s popularity. The demand for renewal will play a huge role in bringing the series back. The coming months will tell us all about the fate of the series.
