Will Wonder Egg Priority have a second season?
From December 9, 2021CloverWorks or any related company does not have this yet renewed the anime for one second season† In general, anime follows mangas, and if there is not enough source material available, we have almost no chance of seeing a new season. However, the fact that the anime has original content allows a script to be written by Shinji Nojima for a second season independent of a magna. In terms of source material there is no problem, but this is not the only criterion for a new season.
Animes are financial products and are sometimes created to support sales of the light novel and manga they are inspired by, and sometimes they take advantage of direct disc sales and exclusive distributors and viewers. Wonder Egg Priority is not distributed by a giant exclusive distributor like Netflix. So eyes turned to disc sales and general popularity for a second season opportunity.
To renew anime for a new season, the sales average is generally expected to remain above 4,000 units. If sales are disappointing, the decision-making committee will not approve a second season and the studio will not be enthusiastic about this work. Sales of discs for the first season of Wonder Egg Priority began on March 24, 2021. The first volume, which sold 962 units, was well below target and expectations. Given the disc sales, a new season is highly unlikely.
If we look at Google’s search data to see the worldwide popularity of the anime, we see a strong search popularity. So much so that anime is more sought after than many popular anime, and its current worldwide popularity is enough for another season. Yet parallel popularity is not available in Japan, and only about 40,000 people follow the official Twitter account in parallel with the disc sales. However, the global expectation may be sufficient for a new season.
