It's no secret that Sounan Desu ka? is based on a Japanese manga of the same name written by Kentaroo Okamoto. To date, the manga consists of four volumes. However, given that the fourth volume has been released on the eve of the 1st season premiere, on March 6, 2019, we doubt that it could be included in the current television adaptation.
As a result, Are You Lost? Season 1 most likely covers only three volumes in the original manga series. We thereby have at least one new volume for another television adaptation. Another question is that we thus faced with a lack of the source material, yet such a question is more related to a likely release date for Sounan Desu ka? Season 2.
To be honest, Sounan Desu ka? has received average, but mainly favorable reviews from viewers, given the statistics presented by MyAnimeList. According to their data, Are You Lost? Season 1 holds a score of 6.72/10 based on approx. 7,000 votes. Despite that we treat such figures as a bit low, such a reception is more than enough for the further decision on renewal.
The final point in the decision would likely depend on the commercial statistics of the media franchise. Once we have the data about the BD/DVD sales, we might extend this forecast.
Sounan Desu ka? Season 2 Release Date
As we have mentioned above, Sounan Desu ka? Season 2 is yet to be announced. However, we don't rule out the possibility of renewal, and even tend to believe that Sounan Desu ka? Season 2 is just a matter of time. As a rule, we have only two possible scenarios in such a situation.
In the best case scenario, if only two volumes were required for production of Sounan Desu ka? Season 1, we have enough source material for another television round. In such a case, we might expect Sounan Desu ka? Season 2 already next summer, in July 2020, given the current schedule of the series, and taking into account the fact that, as a rule, it takes not less than a year to produce another television adaptation.
At the worst, we require at least two more books. Given that Kentaroo Okamoto, the manga author, releases 1-2 books per year, it could take 1-2 years before we'll see Are You Lost? Season 2. In such a case, we should expect the premiere not earlier than in 2022-2023.
Nonetheless, guys, we want you to take into account that the data above is only our forecast. We thereby are tracking down the official sources on the subject of the official announcement of Sounan Desu ka? Season 2 as well as a specific release date for another round of the anime. As soon as any additional data emerge, we will update this page. So guys, stay tuned for updates. We will keep you informed.
