Anime lovers around the world recognized it with its anime adaptation, which aired in the spring of 2021. The anime series directed by Takashi Naoya was created by the Doga Kobo studio, which we know from beloved animes like The helpful fox Senko-san and asteroid in love† The anime, which gained popularity with crunchy rolls‘s license and listing, was originally broadcast on many local networks such as AT-X, SUN, Tokyo MX, KBS Kyoto, TV Aichi, BS11. The anime’s first season, consisting of 12 episodes, aired weekly from April 14, 2021 to June 30, 2021. Fans are now wondering if there’s a second season† Every year, dozens of romantic comedy anime such as Osamake meet the audience. Many of them are meant to advertise their manga or light novels, but still, there may be a second season opportunity. Let’s remember the series and take a look at everything that is known about the second season.
What is the storyline of Anime: Osamake?
The plot of the series is told from the point of view of one of the main characters, Sueharu Maru: “It seems that my childhood friend Shida Kuroha has feelings for me. She lives in the next apartment, on top of that, cute and sweet. With her outgoing personality, she is a likeable older sister type. That’s one of the best parts of it. But I’m already in love with our school’s beautiful idol and award-winning author, Kachi Shirokusa! Logically I don’t have a chance with her, but she chats with me on the way home, smiling! Maybe I have a chance? Or so I thought. Then my life took another blow when I heard that Shirokusa had a boyfriend. I want to die. Why not me? Shirokusa was my first love. Kuroha whispered as I drowned in despair and depression. If it’s so hard for you, what about taking revenge? And one of the best.”
Will there be a second season of the anime?
osamake made its first season finale on June 30, 2021. At the time of writing, studio Doga Kobalight novel publishing company ASCII Media Worksor any related company with the anime yet renewed the anime for one second season† Animes can sometimes get a new season approval years and years later; this situation is a bit different from TV dramas. So maybe we’ll see a renewal in the future. Until then, there can be speculation about the new season.
Light novel compared to Anime
The Light Novel, the original of the series, is written by Shūichi Nimaru and illustrated by Ui Shigure. The Light Novel, which ASCII Media Works began publishing on June 8, 2019, consists of: 8 parts† Fortunately, the series is currently underway, and the final installment was released on June 10, 2021. The anime does not have an English publisher yet, and fans who want to continue the series with a light novel will have to wait a little longer.
The first season of the anime has been adapted from the first 4 parts of the light novel series. This means that the rest of the source material consists of: 4 parts† If creators want to use as much source material as they did in the first season, there is enough stock material available at this point for a new season. But for more certainty, the LN has to publish a few more volumes. Since there are about 4-5 volumes published during the year, there will be no problems in the future.
The popularity of the series
On the other hand, Osamake is in a sweet spot compared to the animes that came out in 2021. It has strong search volume in Google and if it maintains its current popularity, it may have a shot at a second season. The drama scores 968th on Myanimelist’s popularity rankings. Although it is not a good ranking, we can say that it is average for a new anime. But given that very few of the anime have gotten approval for the new season, it should do better than that. If you want to see a new anime season at this stage, then you should increase its popularity by recommending it to your loved ones.
If we look at the official Twitter account of the anime in Japan, we see that about 145k people follow the page† This number of followers is enough for an anime that wants a new season. Generally animes with more than 100k followers are considered very popular and promising for a new season.
BluRay and DVD sales will be released on July 28, 2021† If the anime can sell more than the widely accepted 4,000 units, there’s a good chance there will be a second season. When disc sales numbers become clear, we’ll add them to our article. Stay tuned.
When is the second season of the anime?
A new season of the anime has not yet been confirmed, but we are very hopeful about the second season as a result of the evaluation we made above. A strong fan base is waiting for the second season of the anime. On the other hand, as the light novel series continues, there is no problem in terms of the source material. A better estimate will be possible when the disc sales are also known. The first season of the anime was announced on October 3, 2020 and aired on April 14, 2021. If we take into account the production and renewal times, we can see the second season sometime around 2023† Until then you can watch similar animes like Don’t play with me, Miss Nagatoroor Master Takagi-san. tease† Stay tuned for official updates.
