‘Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai’ (Seishun Buta Yarou wa Bunny Girl Senpai no Yume wo Minai) better known as ‘Bunny Girl Senpai’ is one of the most popular anime releases of 2018.
The comedy, supernatural romantic series is based on a light novel series written by Hajime Kamoshida and illustrated by Keeji Mizoguchi. Moreover, A film adaptation, which also served as a direct sequel to the anime, was released in June 2019.
Bunny Girl Senpai Season 2: Renewed or Canceled?
We all know, it has been four years since the ‘Bunny Girl Senpai’ anime series ended. However, the anime is still not renewed for season 2. In terms of the popularity, there are plenty of fans that continue to await the anime’s return for season 2. The anime scored an impressive 8.26 rating on MyAnimeList, although there were also criticisms from people who think the anime is simply overhyped.
The ‘Bunny Girl Senpai’ Light Novel Series currently has a total of 11 volumes. The first season of ‘Bunny Girl Senpai’ anime covered the first 5 volumes of the novel series, while the movie adaptation adapted the 6th and 7th volumes.
Furthermore, in addition to that, assuming the anime needs five volumes to create one season, we need to wait until the novel series publishes the 12th volume. Only then can we get to have enough source material. Apparently, without adequate source material, there will be no renewal and no production for season 2. However, you don’t have to worry as the long gap in anime production is normal. Even other popular titles like ‘Mushishi’ and ‘Bleach’ had to wait for nine years before getting new seasons.
Bunny Girl Senpai Season 2: Expected Release Date
At this moment, there is no potential release date yet. Fans are pretty disappointment as they kept anticipating if there is another season of the series. However, we all are aware of the fact that anime usually takes more time to create a series or season.
According to the reports, if there is enough material to create another season, we expect the show to be renewed for a season 2 in the next year. However, once the 12th volume is published, we expect the show to return 2-3 years after its renewal.
