Say I Love You Season 2: Why We Want It
As mentioned before, Say I Love You features a typical high school setup for its plot. But, its execution and portrayal differs this series with the other shows. Unsatisfied with the first season that can be so much more, the viewers are now demanding for Say I Love You Season 2, since some of them finds the series relatable as the relationship they ever had, or are having in their high school.
Overall, the anime got a good response from both the viewers and the critics. But, that wasn’t good enough for Zexcs (Diabolik Lovers) to produce Say I Love You Season 2. The studio hasn’t officially announced the fate of the second series, making the fans of this classic romance story are still waiting to hear something from the creators.
Say I Love You Season 2: Will It Ever Happen?
The inaugural season of the anime consists of 13 episodes along with an ODA. But, the manga of this series actually has 18 episodes, giving hope for its fans so that the makers have other materials to adopt a lot to make Say I Love You Season 2.
They even have enough material to make Say I Love You Season 2 back in 2014. However, Zexcs studios did not pick up the show. Since the manga has ended 3 years back, the chances of the next season also got decreased gradually.
