Monster Musume Season 2: There Is Enough Source Material
Many doubted that Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou might have a Season 2. However, two OVAs were released within past two years, which points out that the anime series could soon obtain the next installment. Of course, we are aware of this hint in the twelfth episode, which reportedly confirms a sophomore season. However, there has been no official announcement on the subject in fact. Meanwhile, most of the fans are wondering whether or not Lerche & Seva studios are going to produce another installment of Monster Musume. Fortunately, there are plenty of things to discuss.
The main reason why the fans doubted regarding the second season, is that there wasn't enough source material for another television adaptation. However, as of today, the original manga series consists of thirteen volumes, and is currently ongoing, by the way. So the show's creators have enough data for a second television adaptation (or they need one more volume to be sure). Moreover, the BD/DVD sales of the series were impressive. In 2016, over 3,700 items were sold weekly. We consider this indicator as primary and foremost since precisely these numbers could illustrate the commercial success of any franchise. Eventually, this factor mostly affects the decision on renewal.
As for the demand of the target audience, it could be easily illustrated through the statistics. Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou has a score of 7.33/10 on MyAnimeList based on ~ 143,500 votes. The viewers of Crunchyroll have evaluated the anime at 4.4 out of 5 stars. Furthermore, numerous fans eagerly wait for the next installment and even reading the manga to learn more about this story. So, generally speaking, everything is ready for Season 2. Summing up, this anime has a pretty high rating among the target audience; there is enough source material for another television adaptation; the BD/DVD sales were excellent. Thus, we have every reason to believe that Monster Musume Season 2 could happen in the foreseeable future. The only question remained is when. We'll speculate on the subject below.
Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou premiered in July 2015 on Tokyo MX. Soon after, many Japanese broadcasters such as AT-X, BS11, KBS, began airing the anime. The studios Lerche and Seva served as the developers of the television adaptation. Sentai Filmworks acted as a licensor of the series in North America. The anime is available for online video streaming through Crunchyroll and other online broadcasters. The first season of Monster Musume consisted of twelve episodes came to an end on September 22, 2015. Since then, there have been no official reports regarding renewal.
Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou Summary
If you still had no chance to get acquainted with this anime, we provide you a brief overview below.
It turns out that there are various mysterious creatures, living among us. However, their existence remained a secret for years. However, recently, the Japanese government exposed the secret papers about these magical beings. As a result, some of them, known as liminals joined the human society. In order to assist people in their adapting to these new conditions, the government introduced a unique exchange program similar to those of exchanging with the international students. However, there are some restrictions on this new program. Both humans and lamias can't harm each other.
The storyline thereby focuses on Kimihito Kurusu, a student who mistakenly becomes a participant of such an exchange program. Thus, he starts to live alongside with Miia, a lamia. Over time, Kimihito encounters other female liminals of different species which begins to live under one roof with him as well. Now his mission is to survive among these magical creatures, cope with their issues, and assist them to adapt to the human world.

On The Subject Of The Possible Release Date For Season 2
As mentioned above, there are plenty of factors in favor of Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou Season 2.

So, we must wait for the official announcement, in any case. Nonetheless, we will inform you about any news on the subject as soon as possible. Stay tuned for updates.
