Fans of the series have been waiting for Boogiepop Season 2 for the past two years. They were intrigued by the debut installment as it featured some amazing psychological drama with elements of horror in it. Hence, a short run of this show was not enough to fulfill their craving. They are now demanding to see some more episodes. So, Madhouse ever renew a sequel of this brilliant show? Here are all the latest details.
Boogiepop and Others, aka Bugīpoppu wa Warawanai, is a Japanese horror dark fantasy anime series. Well, it is based on a light novel series of the same title by Kouhei Kadono. Studio Madhouse came forward and picked up the source material to produce the anime adaptation. The viewers saw its premiere episode on January 4, 2019. It concluded after running for 18 episodes on March 29, 2018.
Boogiepop Season 2: Renewed?
Psychological horror is one of the fans’ most favorite genres. People often enjoy watching thriller dramas blend with mystery and horror that offer an overall spine-chilling experience. Boogiepop had a huge fandom even before the arrival of the anime due to its LN series. As a result, fans were anticipating an adaptation, and when it arrived, they were really impressed. Most LN readers loved the anime adaptation almost as much as the source material. Hence, combined with the anime-only audience, they began to demand Boogiepop Season 2 right after completing the first one. However, the makers or anyone involved in the production of the series hasn’t revealed anything about the sequel so far. They are maintaining their silence, and fans find it very disappointing as they do not want to go through a hiatus.
Do The Makers Have Enough Content To Follow?
As we mentioned above, the anime adapted its plot from the Bugīpoppu wa Warawanai light novel series. The serialization of this LN began back in 1998. Since then, its author has published numerous books, which include both main and side stories. The debut season of the anime only followed the fourth and fifth volume of the LN. Therefore, Madhouse Studio can use the content from the remaining books for making Boogiepop Season 2.
Boogiepop Season 2: Will There Be A Sequel?
The initial season of the anime got a positive response from its viewers. It had a great critical reception as well. The show also holds a good score of 7.09 on MyAnimeList. Aside from that, due to the LN series, the anime developed a huge fan base as well. Hence, all of them are now waiting for the release of its sequel. The good thing is Madhouse Studio has content for its future installments. Therefore, the odds seem to be in favor of Boogiepop Season 2. The fans can expect the makers to renew the second season and fulfill its fans’ wish anytime this year. If that happens, we might get to watch some new episodes by the beginning of the next year. We will surely update this section as soon as the renewal arrives.
