The main characters of the anime may have been rendered better than any anime you’ve seen so far. In addition to the main character, the side characters are also carefully prepared. The anime has a great story from the beginning to the end, but this story is incorporated in the characters’ lives in a natural way. The characters don’t seem to be chasing these events, but they’re already in it. This story, which contains a mystery in its beautiful story, was liked by everyone. Anime featured romance in addition to this pleasant story and mystery in the first season. We can say that there is also a nice comedy in the series. We are sure that this excitement will continue in the second season, and they signaled this in the film. The film did not detract from the success like the first season of the series.
Will there be a second season of Rascal Does Not Dream or Bunny Girl Senpai?
From April 17, 2021at the time of writing, the series has not yet been renewed for a second season† Neither CloverWorks nor any licensed companies have confirmed an extension. After the first season of the series, a movie was released. It’s not easy to guess whether this critically acclaimed film like the series was a hint for the second season or a goodbye. While there’s no official statement at this point, we can speculate about next season. The main factor for the series to get a second season is adequacy and popularity of the source material. Let’s explore…
Light Novel Status of the Anime (Main Source Material)
Rascal does not dream of Bunny Girl Senpai is a slight new edit, as we mentioned at the beginning of the article. Published by ASCII Media Works in 2014, the manga series was written by Hajime Kamoshida and illustrated by Keiji Mizoguchi. The good news is that the light novel series is still going on at this point. The last part of the series, which consists of 11 parts in total, was released on December 10, 2020 and one or two parts are published annually. It’s gratifying that the manga doesn’t make it to a final as it’s the main source material from the TV adaptation.
The first season of the anime had five parts. The movie was a sequel. The film picked up where the anime left off and included the sixth and seventh installments. The series currently consists of a total of 11 parts, with four parts remaining for a second season. The rest of the source material is highly critical. If the team has to prepare a 5 part anime season like in the first season, one more part has to be released.
Disc sales and film revenue
Disc sales are important for anime to get approval for a new season. Disc sales are also important information, not only for financial reasons, but also to see how popular the series is in Japan. The decision-making committee usually doesn’t give a second season chance to anime that sells for less than 4,000 copies. When we look at Bunny Girl Senpai’s disc sales in the first season, we see that 7,820 units were sold in the first installment. In addition, although the film was released on a small scale, the film, which was released in 2019, generated 370 million YEN box office revenue. A second season seems possible in terms of disc sales and financially.
When is the second season release date?
There is no official release date and extension yet. While the CloverWorks drawing team says they love making anime on the Japanese local broadcaster’s program and want to keep going, it’s more than that. We think the series will be getting a second season. Popularity is the main criterion and the popularity rating of “Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai” is 96.6%. It tops the anime list with this score. The last part of the manga has just been released, and even if the second season of the series is adapted from these four parts, it could reach the end of 2021, and if a new volume is expected, there could be a second season sometime in 2022 .We will update it when an official Publication date announced. CloverWorks has made some plans for 2021, but the expected anime isn’t among them yet.
