Bunny Girl Senpai Season 2 is in danger.
It has been over three years since the release of the first season of Bunny Girl Senpai. Since then there has been no news regarding the US audience whatsoever. It can be said it is a bad omen for the anime. No news for a couple of years of a series renewal and you can forget about it getting another shot at the medium.
I have amassed bit by bit the information available across the vast realms of the internet to predict when will the next release be. Let's hope the anime itself does not suffer from “Adolescence Syndrome” and vanishes after just a season and a single movie.
Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai popularly known as Bunny Girl Senpai is an anime series based on light novels of the same name.
The novels are written by Hajime Kamoshida the scriptwriter of Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans. The illustrator is Keiji Mizoguchi who also served as the Original Character Designer on the anime adaptation.
A manga has been serialized in the US by YenPress. It has some great artwork that I have ever seen. You can order the first volume of the manga from their official website. It is shame though that no new volume after 2020 has come out of Japan. The last one to come out is volume four.
Trivia: It is this month that volume six of manga will be launching in Japan on July 27. That is a break of almost two years. But since the manga is back in publication in Japan I hope YenPress will further serialize the English version.
Bunny Girl Senpai Season 2 Release Date: No Immediate Future Plans
The first season of the anime ran from October 4 to December 27, 2018. The anime was licensed by Aniplex of America and streamed on Hulu, Crunchyroll, and Netflix.
A film titled the same as the anime was released in Japan in 2019. The film is yet to be released overseas in English. It is with this assumption I say that the film will see a release in the US and then the second season will premiere.
As of now, there is no information available regarding even the production status of the second season. The anime has not been green-lit for another bout.
A twelve episodes series takes almost a year to be animated by a top-notch staff. The effects are then over the top. The result is a beautifully animated world that then transports us to their adobe.
Just a hypothesis. Even if by some miracle, the anime is announced to be in production it will be released by next year at the minimum time frame. Then the dubbing of it will take some extra time. Safe bet, it will be out in 2024 if and only if it is in early production stages right now.
According to entoin, As of now, there have been no official announcements regarding Bunny Girl Senpai Season 2.
Bunny Girl Senpai Season 2 Plot: Will Adapt Light Novel Volumes 7 to 11
The first season of the anime adopted volumes 1 to 4 of the light novels. The film chronicles the events of light novels volumes 5 and 6. Following this tradition, I daresay the second season will adapt story arcs of volumes 7 to 11.
So, as to how the second season of the anime will start, I have given below the blurb of volume 7 of Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai from YenPress.
“Sakuta had been ready to give up his life, but nothing could have prepared him to keep living like this. Now he must find a way to carry on even when it feels like tomorrow will never come. And even if it does, why should he care when the love of his life is already gone? Of course, he can always count on Shouko to show him the way forward in his darkest hour, just like she did all those years ago. As he gathers the strength and courage Mai gave him, Sakuta readies himself to do whatever it takes to rewrite the past.”
With this, you get a general idea of how the season will start. Sakuta will need a lot of support from Shouko and Mai to overcome the obstacles in his life. We hope he will be able to undo the present dark scenario and win over again like he always does. I will be rooting for you Sakuta!
