†If my favorite pop idol made it to the Budokan I would die‘ or with the original name ‘Oshi ga Budokan Ittekuretara Shinu‘ is one of the Slice of Life and Comedy anime that met the audience in 2020. The anime licensed from the famous anime distributor Funimation is an adaptation of a manga written by Auri Hirao. The anime was prepared by the Eight Bit studio, known for “That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime”. The anime, which originally aired on TBS, BS-TBS Japanese local channels on January 10, 2020, was broadcast weekly. The series made it to the season finale with its final episode on March 27, 2020, and a total of 12 episodes aired for the first season. Now fans are wondering, is there going to be one second season from the anime?
What was the storyline of If My Favorite Pop Idol Made It to the Budokan?
The drama is about a girl who is obsessed with a member of a not so popular band and so obsessed that she will die to see her idol perform in Budoukan.
Eripiyo, one of the main heroes of our series, is a young girl who devotes all her time to CDs, concerts and events. He is devoted to a member of the group he is in love with. The young girl, who spends nothing, does not even buy a new outfit and spends all her money to support the group she is a fan of. Unable to control the level of obsession, the girl sometimes even thinks about selling her organs. It was an interesting feeling to watch this girl’s story in the first season.
Will there be a second season of the anime?
The anime series has not renewed yet for a second season. The anime series, as we said before, is a manga amendment. The manga series written by Auri Hirao was published in ‘Monthly Comic Ry’ magazine in August 2015. The good news is that the manga series is still going on. The final installment for the manga series, published in a total of 6 volumes, was released in 2019.
So is there enough source material for anime? The answer is still no, the first season of the series consisted of 12 episodes and included four parts of the manga. There are only two parts left and it’s not enough for a second season. In addition, the popularity of the series must increase before we can see a new season. Sufficient material will be ready by 2022. Before this date it is not possible to see a new season.
On the other hand, the anime studio’s other product, That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime, managed to gain approval for its second season. The production, which will return to the vision in early 2021, has delighted fans, but the difference in popularity between the two anime is very large.
