For the past three years, the fans have been anticipating Eromanga Sensei Season 2. However, they haven’t got any update on it following installment so far. It is one of those show who either got some great positive reviews or some terrible ones; there is no in-between. It was a guilty pleasure for most viewers, and they still want to see more of it. So, will its sequel ever come out? Here are all the latest details.
Eromanga Sensei is a Japanese ecchi romantic comedy anime series. A-1 Pictures adapted the manga series of the same name written by Tsukasa Fushimi to produce this show. The viewers saw its debut episode on April 9, 2017. It concluded after running for twelve episodes on June 25, 2017. Since then, its fans are wondering whether they will ever be able to see its sequel or not.
Eromanga Sensei Season 2: Renewal Status!
Over the past few years, fans have constantly been asking the makers to renew the series. Despite their constant demands and online petitions, the production company is still quite lipped about it. Aside from some of the negative reviews, the first season of the anime series received a great response. After the completion of the first installment, the creators released two OVA episodes as well. So, it might be possible that they still want to keep this franchise alive. Therefore, the fans are speculating that the busy schedule of A-Pictures could be the main reason behind the delay in the show’s renewal.
Do The Makers Have Enough Source Material?
The serialization of the LN series began in December 2013. Since then, the authors have published a total of twelve volumes, and the series is still running. Its most recent volume came out back in 2019. However, the first 12-episode season only adapted the initial three volumes of it. Therefore, A-1 Pictures still has the content from the remaining nine volumes that they can use to produce Eromanga Sensei Season 2. The rest of the source material can even be used to create a third season. The main plot of the series will begin from its fourth volume, and that’s the reason why the fans are getting so desperate for the sequel.
Eromanga Sensei Season 2: Will The Anime Return?
The viewership of the anime’s debut season was great. However, its ratings were not on par with it. Its score on MAL is only 6.48, which is quite average. Despite that, the first season was a great commercial success. It made a lot of profit for its producers. Its merchandise brought a lot of money as well. By releasing some OVAs, the makers also hinted that they want to continue the series. Therefore it is likely that its fans will see at least one more installment of this anime. If Eromanga Sensei Season 2 is on the cards, viewers can expect to hear its official announcement this very year.
