Eromanga Sensei is undoubtedly one of the most famous romantic comedy anime series of all time. Released in 2017, this anime is based on a light novel series by Tsukasa Fushimi. According to many sources, Fushimi started writing this series since 2013 and it’s still ongoing. The first season of Eromanga Sensei was aired on several local channels in Japan such as Tokyo MX, TVA, MBS, GTV, etc.
The first season comprises of twelve episodes and many fans are still looking forward to a season 2. Since it’s been over five years, it’s understandable why fans are becoming impatient.
Eromanga Sensei’s Plot
Eromanga Sensei is centered on Masamune Izumi, a high school boy who wrote different Light Novels. He has a younger sister called Sagiri who has been living in her room for a year. She is nerdy and often makes Masamune do different chores for her such as cooking and cleaning.
As the story episodes progress, Masamune comes to find out that Eromanga- the person who illustrates the characters of his novel is actually his sister. Also, he encounters an attractive girl called shoujo mangaka who ends up becoming a rival.
Is There a Second Season Of Eromanga Sensei?
As of June 2022, there is no news about the second season of Eromanga Sensei. The creative studio or other related companies are yet to announce the making or release of Eromanga Sensei season 2. However, several factors can affect the approval for a second season of an anime series.
Factors such as availability of source material (light novel series), sales, and popularity. Hence, it’s important to consider these factors before coming to any conclusions.
What Is The Availability of The Light Novel Source?
As indicated earlier, Eromanga Sensei is adapted from a light novel series by Tsukasa Fushimi. Published by ASCII Media Works and illustrated by Hiro Kanzaki, the novel is still being written. At the moment, 12 volumes are available and the last piece
was published on the 9th of November, 2019.
Since the novel is still far from ending, there is a high chance of an approval for a season 2. Also, the first season of Eromanga Sensei only covers the first three volumes. Hence, there are nine volumes left which is enough material for a season two.
What Is The Disc Sales of The Anime?
Another important factor to consider is the profitability of the anime. How much disc sales have been amassed since its release? Is the amount below or above the average number anime series are meant to sell? Anime series are expected to sell an average of 4,000 units in Blu-Ray and DVD sales. Fortunately, Eromanga Sensei have sold double the average by selling 8057 units of season one.
With an impressive sales record, it’s clear that the studio and other teams will profit from investing in a season two.
The popularity of a series is equally crucial in deciding on a release of a second season. Aside from the local tv channels in Japan, Eromanga Sensei is a available on numerous streaming platforms- Amazon prime video, Netflix, U-NEXT, D anime store, and Hulu. In addition, Myanimelist- a channel that tells the popularity of an anime puts this anime in the 241st position, which is slightly above average for an anime released in 2017. Not to mention that it has over 200k followers on Twitter.
What Is The Release Date For The Second Season of Eromanga Sensei?
Despite all of the positive indicators, there is no release date for the second season of Eromanga Sensei. But, it is an accurate assessment that usually points to a possible release of a second season for an anime series.
Based on the duration of other second season releases, a five-year wait isn’t uncommon. Hence, it’s not strange to anticipate a second season in 2023 or 2024.
