In our opinion, Eromanga Sensei Season 2 is just a matter of time. Most of you are looking forward to another season of the anime. Meanwhile, the renewal would likely be announced soon. The key reason is that the franchise is alive and ongoing. Two new OVA episodes debuted on January 16, 2019. Therefore, the 2nd season now much closer.
You know that there is enough source material for a new anime adaptation. Eromanga Sensei is based on a light novel series of the same name, which is currently contained ten volumes. The last one has been issued on July 10, 2018, in Japan. Eromanga Sensei Season 1 covers only three volumes out of ten. As a result, there are more than enough chapters for two additional television seasons.
However, on the contrary, it's worth mentioning that Eromanga Sensei is the anime project, which is mostly looks fitting to the Japanese target audience, where the "ecchi" genre is extremely popular. Meanwhile, most of the studios are primarily oriented to the audience overseas since these fans attract more money for the franchise.
Yet let's take a look at the response from the Western audience. On MyAnimeList, the first season of Eromanga Sensei holds a score of 6.82 > 171,800 votes. Meanwhile, the two OVA episodes have a rating of 7.22 > 13,300 votes. Though such figures don't look outstanding, they still very high. So we might conclude that Eromanga Sensei is popular among the English speaking audience as well, despite a bit of negative reviews on various forums.
All the indicators thereby seem to be pretty favorable, and we thus tend to believe that Eromanga Sensei Season 2 is planned by A-1 Pictures. The only question remained is when will the upcoming premiere?
Eromanga Sensei Season 2 Release Date
Eromanga Sensei Season 2 is yet to be announced at least officially, as well as its release date. Yet this is not an obstacle for us to discuss the subject a little bit. Eromanga Sensei Season 1 concluded on June 25, 2017. The two OVA episodes were released two years since. Well, we should admit that the production cycle is very slow. The hiatus is mostly due to the fact that the A-1 Pictures studio is engaged in numerous projects.
As a result, we doubt that Eromanga Sensei Season 2 might happen this year. Most likely, the premiere is slated for July 2020, in the case of renewal. Such a period looks very favorable for the upcoming premiere. Yet no doubt, we will have to wait for the official announcement. Fortunately, we are tracking down the official sources. Therefore, you will be the one who knows about the upcoming premiere date first. Stay tuned for updates.
