Eromanga Sensei is a romantic comedy anime series released to the public in the summer of 2017. Eromanga Sensei, which managed to make a name for itself among many anime in its category, is based on the light novel series that Tsukasa Fushimi started writing in 2013. decision of anime adaptation confirmed in 2016, A-1 Pictures took on the task of the creative studio. The studio, which has been making successful animes in recent years, is also the creator of Wotakoi: Love is hard for Otaku and Kaguya-sama: Love is war† The anime, licensed by famous distributors such as crunchy rolls and Funimation, originally broadcast on many local channels in Japan (Tokyo MX, MBS, TVA, GTV, GYT, BS11, AT-X). The first season, which aired between April 9, 2017 and June 25, 2017, consisted of a total of 12 episodes. After more than three years, fans are still wondering if they have a second season†
What is the storyline of Eromanga Sensei?
The story takes place around Masamune Izumi, who wrote Light Novel in high school. Masamune’s younger sister, Sagiri, is a nerdy girl who hasn’t left her room for a whole year. So much so that she forces her brother to cook for her and not leave her room. Masamune asks his sister to leave her room because he only has one sister as a family.
Nicknamed “Eromanga”, who draws in Masamune’s novels, draws perversely but is very reliable. Masamune has never seen this person and thinks he is a disgusting, perverted otaku. But the truth turns out that our “Eromanga-Sensei” is his sister! On top of the shock of the two, a beautiful girl, shoujo mangaka, whom everyone admires, becomes their rival.
Will there be a second season of the anime?
From December 29, 2021at the time of writing, the creative studio A-1 Pictures or a company related to the anime hasn’t yet renewed the anime for one second season† The first season of the anime aired in 2017; the elapsed time can lower your expectations for the new season. However, the time it usually takes for anime does not reduce the chances of a new season. Even after five years, many animes return to the screens with the adoption of the new season – really important factors for an anime’s renewal; source material availability, disc sales and popularity. Considering these factors, we can speculate about a second season.
Slight new status of the anime
The main source material of the anime and the original of the series is the light novel series written by Tsukasa Fushimi and illustrated by Hiro Kanzaki. The light novel, which ASCII Media Works published on December 10, 2013, is still running. At the time of writing, the LN, the latest volume of which was released on November 9, 2019, reached 12 parts in total.
The ongoing light novel series is good news for the anime adaptation. Also, the anime series only covers the first 3 parts in the first season. Considering the remaining 9 parts, we see that there is enough stock material for a second season. There doesn’t seem to be a problem in terms of adequacy of the source material to create a new anime season.
Disc sales of the anime
BluRay and DVD sales are invaluable for animes. Because the most profitable part of animes is the sale of discs. In general, an anime is expected to be average. generates 4,000 disc sales. If it doesn’t meet this target, it’s assumed that it won’t bring enough profit with another season and the series may be canceled. Looking at the disc sales of Eromanga Senseiwe see that it sold on average 8057 units. This shows that the anime’s disc sales are above target. There are no disc sales issues for a new season.
Other factors about the new season
We know that many exclusive distributors issue Eromanga Sensei. The anime, published exclusively by U-NEXT, Amazon prime video, D anime store, Netflix and Hulu in Japan, is profitable in every way. The fact that such online platforms broadcast the series always expands the possibilities of the second season.
Anime ranked 241st on Myanimelist based on popularity. While this is a good ranking, it can be considered average for an anime that came out in 2017. It still has above average popularity on Google, and it still has a Twitter account that actively calls out to followers and is followed by over 200k people. In general, we see that the animes that are followed more than 100k have received the approval of the new season. The latest retweet from the anime’s official Twitter account also sparks the hopes of fans.
Looking at the studio, A-1 Pictures managed to get the approval of the second season with a lot of animations. They will also be happy to make a second season for Eromanga Sensei, one of the precious anime.

When is the second season of Eromanga Sensei?
The second season of the anime has not yet been confirmed. Disc sales, popularity and availability of source material are the two most important factors and are the main signals for the new season. Eromanga Sensei has a positive evaluation. Besides these, as a result of the review we made above, all the factors point to the second season. We think the anime may have another season. However, the silence of the creators on this topic and the time that has passed reduce the possibilities of the new season. If we look at the production and renewal time, it is possible to see a new season in 2023 – 2024, but there is no official statement on that yet. Stay tuned.
