School Live Season 2: Will It Ever Happen?
School Live Season 2 Release Date
The first season of School Live became an instant hit after its release. It received good reviews both from critics and viewers. The anime adaptation also became popular enough to increase the sales of its manga. Upon this fact, fans assumed that there will be School Live Season 2 soon. Sadly, almost six years have passed, yet Lerche (Given, Kino’s Journey) hasn’t given any official announcement on School Live Season 2.
Anime adaptations indeed tend to act as mere advertisements to their source of materials. So usually, they are concluded after the first season, to make anime viewers read its source material if they want more content. As of now, the School Live manga is still ongoing. Thus, there’s still hope for the fans to get a School Live Season 2.
As of now, none of the production companies have confirmed the arrival of School Live Season 2. It is more likely for the new season to be released in mid-2022.
Is There Enough Content for School Live Season 2?
Unlike original anime, adaptations depend on their source material quite a lot. Fortunately, even though the first season covers so many chapters from the manga, it often went off the plot and featured original content as well. Not to mention, the first season only adapts until volume 5 chapter 30. Since the manga already has 12 volumes, fans still have hope to see School Live Season 2.
