It seems that another sports anime gradually turns into a new hit. Welcome to the Ballroom looks promising since many viewers appreciated the first season of the series. But there is a reasonable question, whether or not the series creators desire to create one more season of this anime? In general, the sports genre gains popularity in Japan. You may have had a chance to get acquainted with such hits as Kuroko's Basketball, Yuri on Ice, Haikyu!!, and other popular series of the genre.
Now we are witnessing how another candidate claims its place in the row. All that sounds good. But what about the second season of Ballroom e Youkoso? The series is currently ongoing. Thus, there has been no official news on the subject. However, there are some points to discuss, since we believe that this anime might obtain the next season soon. Why do we assume so? Let's attempt to figure out.
The primary factor we want to note is that such prominent broadcast network as Amazon appeared on the arena. You probably don't know that the series is available exclusively on Amazon Prime Video not only in the United States but also in Japan. We suppose that it's not for nothing that such giant broadcaster began airing Welcome to the Ballroom. Apparently, they sensed a commercial success of the franchise. As a result, the management decided to acquire exclusive rights for the series worldwide. This fact serves as our first evidence.
Secondly, Amazon's leadership was right in their forecast, since the first season of this anime has received a very positive response from the target audience. We may be sure of this fact, looking at the figures presented by MyAnimeList. According to their statistics, Ballroom e Youkoso gained a score of 8.12/10 ~ 15,300 votes. There are few votes on Amazon itself. But the ratings are mostly favorable as the first season of the series has a score of 4.3 out of 5 stars.
Finally, the original manga contains nine volumes consisting of 41 chapters. Volumes 10 and 11 are scheduled to issue in 2018. So, as it appears, this franchise is a long-term project. Summing up, we conclude that Ballroom e Youkoso Season 2 would happen someday. The main question is when? We're waiting for confirmation and will inform you as soon as possible.
Welcome to the Ballroom premiered in July 2017 on MBS. Soon, Tokyo MX, BS11, and Gunma TV began airing the anime in Japan. The series is available online globally thanks to Amazon Prime Video, the broadcaster which has acquired exclusive streaming rights to the anime. Production I.G, Inc. acted as a developer of the television adaptation. The first season consists of twenty-four episodes.
