Four years is quite a long time for the fans to wait for their favorite show. Sakura Quest will be celebrating its fourth anniversary sooner this year. Hence, fans of the anime are beginning to get impatient about the future of Sakura Quest Season 2. The concept of this show was very fresh, and the audience really liked it. Will they ever see its sequel? Here are all the latest details.
Sakura Quest, aka Sakura Kuesuto, is a Japanese slice-of-life comedy anime. Animation studio P.A Works produced the anime series, which was directed by Soichi Masui. The anime series tells the story about its people and their jobs. A 25-episode show made its debut on April 5, 2017, and ran till September 20 of the same year.
Sakura Quest Season 2: Renewal Status!
Both P.A Works and the series’s makers are yet to reveal the future of the anime series. They haven’t provided any update regarding its renewal status. As a result, the fans are getting desperate to know whether there will be Sakura Quest Season 2 or not. The fans are quite shocked that the makers didn’t renew the show despite the great response. Fortunately, the production company has not canceled the series as well. Therefore, its fans are still hopeful for its return.
Is There Enough Source Material?
This anime series is an original work from the P.A Works, which means it does not follow any source material. There isn’t any manga or light novel series to adapt its plot from. Therefore to make Sakura Quest Season 2, the makers have to write its plot again by themselves as there is nothing to adapt.
Sakura Quest: Plot Details!
The anime series’s story will take its viewers to 21st century Japan when the country is facing an economic collapse. This event has weakened almost all fields of production and was a massive loss to the small town. To address this issue, the smartest people made a summit and began to discuss the raising issues. They thought about controlling the population and chose to work using the experience of their ancestors.
The story of Sakura Quest revolves around a girl named Yoshino Koharu. She is looking for a job but already met with a lot of rejections. However, she got lucky and received a job offer to work with the financially struggling Manoyama village’s tourism board as their “Queen.” She has no other choice, so Yoshino accepts the offer and becomes the Queen of Manoyama.
Sakura Quest Season 2: Will The Anime Return?
The viewers really liked the first season of the anime, and the critics praised it as well. Its rating is also impressive as it has a solid score of 7.40 on MAL. However, the anime series failed to produce enough sales for its producers. Plus, the debut installment ended without any cliffhanger and pointed towards the end of the series. So, it is likely that Sakura Quest Season 2 will not happen. Hence, fans better not raise their hopes too high for watching its second installment.
