ARP Backstage Pass came out last year with the potential to be the best music anime of the year. While it certainly wasn’t the best, the series did manage to entertain the viewers. It has been more than a year, but fans haven’t heard any word regarding ARP Backstage Pass Season 2. So, is there any chance for the return of this show? How long will we have to wait? Here are all the latest details.
ARP Backstage Pass is a Japanese original music anime series. Some fans also referred to this show as an idol documentary series. Dynamo Pictures animate this show under the command of Tetsuya Endo. The viewers saw its first musical episode on January 13, 2020. It ran only for ten episodes and finished on March 30, 2020. Its short-run wasn’t enough to fulfill the craving of some viewers, and now they’re demanding to see more of it.
AR Performers Anime Review!
The debut season of the anime series didn’t receive many positive reviews, but the viewers certainly praise it for its unique approach. It is very rare to see an anime that takes a talk show kind of approach. Most of the anime series featuring the idol stuff turned out to be a little off. However, AR Performers’ animation and art style were really good. The chemistry between the characters also managed to stand out, especially during the later episodes. The best part about ARP Backstage Pass is certainly its music. It is really good and keeps the viewers engaged. Plus, the finale exceeded the viewers’ expectations as it was certainly its best episode of the entire series. However, the plotline of the anime wasn’t really deep. Overall, the anime series is pretty fun to watch and won’t bore its viewers.
ARP Backstage Pass Season 2: Renewal Status!
Despite delivering some good episodes, the show failed to impress the critics. It received only mixed reviews from the experts. On the other hand, the overall ratings of its first season aren’t great as well. It has a very poor score of 5.55 on MyAnimeList. Besides, it is an original series, and the creators aren’t sure about producing a sequel either. This is definitely not a positive sign, especially after the low ratings. Currently, things don’t seem to be in favor of ARP Backstage Pass Season 2. If the demand for its second season increases, only then the production company might think of renewing it for another run. However, the chances for that to happen are also very low.
ARP Backstage Pass Season 2: Release Date
As we stated above, the chances are pretty low for this musical anime to return. Therefore, it is currently very hard to predict the release date for its sequel as there is no renewal. If its renewal arrives later this year, fans can expect ARP Backstage Pass Season 2 to premiere sometime in Winters 2022. However, to know its official release date, we will have to wait for an announcement from the production company.
