DAKAICHIA -I’m harassed by the sexiest man of the year- is a popular anime series in the Yaoi genre, which means boy love. The anime released in 2018 is actually based on a manga series written by Hashigo Sakurabi. Directed by Naoyuki Tatsuwa, the anime was created by CloverWorks studio, famous for its popular anime. CloverWorks has been making a lot of noise in recent years with anime like The Promised Never Land and Rascal does not dream of Bunny Girl Senpai† The series originally aired on Tokyo MX, GTV, GYT, BS11, SUN, KBS between October 5, 2018 and December 28, 2018. The production, under license from Aniplex of America, was also featured on crunchy rolls and also on Funimation† Because of this, it was noticed by many viewers, and now it is second season is eagerly awaited. So, is there going to be a second season of the series?
What was the storyline of the anime?
The main character is Takato Saijo, 28 years old. Takato Saijo is an accomplished actor who has been in the entertainment world since he was eight years old and had 20 years of experience. It became popular for its sweet looks and very capable acting, and has been ranked number one in a particular magazine’s “Men Who Want to Be Embraced” for five years in a row. However, Takato, who expected to reprise the series this year, will be stripped of his position by another lead character, Junta Higashiya.
Junta Higashiya is a new actor who has been performing for years. Takato was robbed of the man who wants to be hugged by newcomer Junta Higashiya and was first cast as a supporting actor in the movie starring Higashiya, so he doesn’t have good feelings for Junta Higashiya. In the meantime, however, Takato goes out for a drink with Higashiya. With the drunken momentum, Takato throws a complaint about Higashiya at himself.
It was on the bed of Junta Higashiya’s house that the drunken senior woke up. Takato, who filmed last night’s ugliness, is willing to be threatened by Higashiya. However, what Higashiya asked was a high-ranking person himself. “I want to hug Mr. Saijo…” Takato, who was forced by Higashiya, was forced into a physical relationship.
Will there be a second season of Dakaichi?
CloverWorks or an affiliated company doesn’t renewed the anime for one second season yet. But don’t worry. Anime series can take years to renew, and if we look at previous CloverWorks productions, we see that there are productions that manage to renew for a second season. Until there is an official announcement for the second season, we can speculate about it. A number of important criteria are important here. Chief among these are manga status, popularity, and indirect Blu-Ray sales.
Manga status of the anime
As we mentioned at the beginning of the article, the series is based on the manga written by Hashigo Sakurabi. The manga series has been published in Magazine Be × Boy and was published in 2013. It is very difficult to get to manga because there is no English publisher. But the good news for anime is that the manga is still going on.
The manga has been released in 7 parts so far. The first season of the anime included parts 1-5. Unfortunately, the manga series has been largely adapted to anime. It means we have to wait for more manga volume to provide enough source material.
Popularity status of the anime
According to last year’s data, the anime’s Blu-Ray sales are over 7,000. It’s enough for popularity! There seems to be a jinx (or rather, the adult budget situation) that “If you can’t sell more than 5,000 anime discs, you can’t make it to the second installment”, but in the case of “Dakaichi”, it passed! On the other hand, the popularity of manga is sufficient, with a circulation of 2.5 million copies.
When is the release date of the second season of DAKAICHI?
Although there is none renewal yet a new season is promising. There is enough popularity and the manga continues. However, the manga currently does not provide enough source material. We follow the news for you. If the renewal comes, the new season of the anime will arrive in 2023 at the earliest because the source material can only be provided sometime in 2023†
