Given is a Japanese anime adaptation based on the manga series written and illustrated by Natsuki Kizu. The anime is produced by Lerche studio and directed by Hikaru Yamaguchi. It got licensed by Crunchyroll and was originally broadcast on Fuji TV. The anime is of BL, drama, and romance genre, and it aired weekly from 11 July 2019 to 19 September 2019.

After the first season of Given, fans are worried about the fate of its second season. Lerche has also produced animes like Toilet-bound Hanako-Kun and Astra Lost in Space which have been a success and whose second series are eagerly awaited. So, can we expect the second season of Given? Read on to find out.

What should we expect in Season two of Given?

All the 11 episodes of season one were marked by excitement, and the second season is expected to be similar. In the first season finale of Given, the characters were happy, leaving viewers curious. In the next season, we hope to see what Uenoyama and Mafuyu’s relationship will bring. We also look forward to seeing more of Haruki and Aki and discovering what will transpire between them.

Will there be Season Two of Given?

Following a previous announcement, Given fans were treated to a final movie on 22 August 2020. However, that wasn’t enough for the fans of the anime. They are still wondering if there will be a second season. As of June 2022, neither the Lerche animation team nor the manga’s publisher has given news of the renewal for the second season. We may have to wait a while longer for the second season since the movie that covers the relationship between Haruki and Akihiko is a sequel. It’s also comforting to know that many animes get new season approval several years later.

It is possible to predict the possibility of a second season by examining the main factors like the manga’s status and popularity.

What is the Manga Status of the Anime?

As mentioned, Given is an adaptation of the manga written and illustrated by Natsuki Kizu. The manga series has been published since 30 April 2013 by Cheri+ magazine and is ongoing to date. Only five have been adapted so far out of the available seven volumes. There may not be enough source material for a second season, but since the manga series is still ongoing, we may have to wait longer for the anime’s new season.

The popularity of Given

The disc sale of the anime is at 3082 units which isn’t good for producers to renew the series. However, it’s important to consider that disc sales have declined in recent years due to increased online video watch. The anime’s Google searches are at 80%, and it has a 74% popularity on Myanimelist. Given has also gained more than 200k Twitter followers, 100k is considered the maximum to qualify for a renewal.

When is the Release Date of Given Season Two?

There hasn’t been news of a renewal of the series, but from the above speculation, season two is highly possible in the future. However, the new season may be a few years from now since the manga source materials aren’t enough. We will keep you updated in case of any official news about the Given renewal.
