Eromanga Sensei Season 2: Will It Return This Year?

Eromanga Sensei Season 2

Debuted in 2017, Eromanga Sensei Season 2 has been demanded by fans to be released. The anime is the adaptation of the light novel with the same name. It is written by Tsukasa Fushimi and illustrated by Hiro Kanzaki, the duo behind the famous My Little Sister Can’t Be This Cute.

Produced by A-1 Pictures, Eromanga Sensei is one of the popular romantic comedy anime series. The main protagonist, Masamune Izumi, is voiced by the one and only Yoshitsugu Matsuoka (Sword Art Online), while the sister, Sagiri Izumi, is played by Akane Fujita (Mahou Shoujo Nante Mou Ii Desukara.). The additional cast includes Minami Takahashi (Food Wars!), Saori Oonishi (Saekano), Ibuki Kido (If Her Flag Breaks’), and Yui Ishikawa (Attack on Titan). It also has a dope opening and ending theme, sung by ClariS and TrySail, respectively.

It’s been four years since the premiere of the first season, so when will it return? Here is everything we know about Eromanga Sensei Season 2.

Will there be Eromanga Sensei Season 2?

Eromanga Sensei Season 2

It has a high possibility that there will be Eromanga Sensei Season 2. The first season was commercially successful. Besides the total views in general, Eromanga Sensei brought profit for A-1 Pictures through plenty of merchandise. The popularity of the series also makes fans sign petitions for the renewal of another season.

In addition, the anime also helped increase the sales of the light novel and manga adaption. After the release of the first season, it is still affecting the number. We believe it will keep increasing if Eromanga Sensei Season 2 is released.

There is no problem regarding the materials for the second season. The author began the serialization of the light novel in 2013. Since then, he has published 12 volumes of Eromanga Sensei, and the status is still ongoing.

The first season, which is listed with 12 episodes, only adapted three volumes. Therefore, there are nine volumes, full of contents, that can produce Eromanga Sensei Season 2.

Eromanga Sensei Season 2 Release Date

We can’t be sure of the specific release date of Eromanga Sensei Season 2 since there is no official announcement from A-1 Picture (Ace Attorney). But, as we said before, the possibility is high.

A-1 Pictures still cares about the series. Two years after the first installment, they released two episodes in the form of OVA. It proves that they keep the franchise alive. Besides, the profit that the series will bring to the pocket could tempt A-1 Pictures to produce Eromanga Sensei Season 2.

There is speculation about why the series is delayed for another season. The busy schedule of A-1 Pictures might be the reason why we can’t see Eromanga Sensei Season 2 yet. In 2021, they have plenty of series that they work on, such as Sword Art Online, 86, and Kaguya-sama. The pandemic could also affect the delay.

Probably we can see the light of Eromanga Sensei Season 2 next year.

Plot of Eromanga Sensei

Eromanga Sensei follows the story of Masamune, a high schooler who has a job as a light novel author. He has a step-sibling named Sagiri, a shut-in who hasn’t left her room for a long time after the death of their parents. Masamune wants his sister to change and leave her room so that they can become a normal family.

On another side, Masamune also has a novel illustrator with the penname Eromanga Sensei. As the name suggests, the illustrator draws perverted drawings but is a reliable co-worker. After some event, Masamune finally knows that Eromanga Sensei is his sister, Sagiri. Elf Yamada, a top-selling novelist, and Muramasa Senjyu, a younger but more experienced novelist, also join their daily life.
