Bunny Girl Senpai Season 2: Will there be a new season of Bunny Girl Senpai? When will it release?

‘Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai’ (Seishun Buta Yarou wa Bunny Girl Senpai no Yume wo Minai) or simply called ‘Bunny Girl Senpai’ is among the most popular animes released in 2018. This comedic, psychological romance anime is based on a light novel of the same name that was first published in 2014. The Bunny Girl Senpai light novel series is written by Hajime Kamoshida and illustrated by Keiji Mizoguchi. An anime movie which is a direct sequel to the anime was released in June 2019.

There are a total of 11 volumes in the light novel series. The first season of the anime adapted Volumes 1 through 5 while the sequel movie Rascal Does Not Dream of a Dreaming Girl adapted the sixth and seventh volumes. A total of four volumes are still available for adaptation. Does this mean the series will be reintroduced soon? Here is what we know about Bunny Girl Senpai Season 2.

Will there be Bunny Girl Senpai Season 2?

The animated series ‘Bunny Girl Senpai’ debuted in 2018. The first season consists of 13 episodes concluded airing on Dec 17, 2018. It’s been more than three years, and the anime is still not renewed for season 2. 

Bunny Girl Senpai was among the most popular anime releases of 2018. It has a pretty good rating of 8.34 on MyAnimeList. The first season was a huge hit. On average, the first season sold roughly 7,000 blu-ray disks. The light novel sales are pretty good, with each volume selling over 70,000 copies.

The sequel movie released in 2019 also did well at the box office with earnings of 510,000,000 yen, or around $4.5 million.

So, in terms of popularity, Bunny Girl Senpai has a lot of backing. The fans have been demanding the second season since the release of the movie. So, why there is no second season yet? 

One of the main reasons Bunny Girl Senpai Season 2 hasn’t been announced yet is the lack of source material. As mentioned above, The ‘Bunny Girl Senpai’ Light Novel Series currently has a total of 11 volumes. The last volume was released in Dec 2020. The first season of ‘Bunny Girl Senpai’ anime adapted the first 5 volumes, while the sequel movie covered the 6th and 7th volumes.

Assuming that a new season needs at least five volumes, we need to wait until the 12th volume of the novel series gets published. Without enough source material, we don’t see a renewal.

Bunny Girl Senpai Season 2 Probable Release Date

‘Bunny Girl Senpai’ season 2 will be an indefinite wait with no official renewal available. The renewal depends on when the next volume of the light novel series gets available. If we look at the publishing pattern, two volumes each were released in 2018 and 2020. So, we can expect two more volumes to be out by the end of 2022.

According to the current situation, the closest release date for ‘Bunny Girl Senpai’ Season 2 is 2023, assuming there will be enough source material and the anime gets renewed by this year. This is just an estimation of the dates. We’ll need to watch for updates. Don’t worry, just bookmark this page and we will keep you posted.

Bunny Girl Senpai Story and what will happen in Season 2?

Sakuta Azusagawa is the main character of this anime series. The selfless teenager is determined to help Mai Sakurajima, a teen actress, and other people suffering from “Adolescence Syndrome.” 

Teenagers display abnormal characteristics because of the phenomenon. Among those factors are being invisible, acquiring physical injuries due to hurtful words received, and many more.

Sakuta encountered the young actress Mai in a library dressed as a bunny. When Sakuta realized no one else had seen Mai but only him, he was confused. When she dresses normally in order to escape her celebrity life, Mai’s “adolescence syndrome” makes her invisible. 

Her surroundings also appear to forget about her presence whenever she does so. Sakuta’s younger sister, Kaede, is also suffering from “adolescent syndrome”. Kaede gets injured after receiving death threats and bullying online. 

Her traumatic experiences eventually led to dissociative amnesia. In order to understand the phenomenon, Sakuta sets out to investigate. As he travels, he meets other girls with Adolescence Syndrome as well as gets into a closer relationship with Mai. 

A happy ending capped off the first season. Having finally been released from the hospital, Kaede decides to go back to school. She now knows she is not alone. In the meantime, Sakuta and Mai grow closer. 

A sequel movie

Directly following the original series, the sequel movie released in 2019 introduced Shoko. She was Sakuta’s first crush. Later on in their timeline, we learned that Shoko had two separate timelines. 

This second version exists only due to Sakuta’s impending death in a car accident. Sakuta has promised to donate his heart to Shoko so she can live.

In the movie, characters go back in time to try and correct mistakes they have made. The result is multiple alternate timelines. By saving Sakuta, Mai and Sakuta didn’t have to let Shoko die. 

There is another time jump in the movie near the end. As it turns out, Sakuta and Mai are stumbled upon by Shoko, who has grown up to be a fourth-grader. Shoko and Sakuta ended up recognizing each other. 

If the show gets renewed for s second season, the story will continue where the movie ends. It will start with the 8th volume of the light novel series titled ‘Rascal Does Not Dream of a Sister on an Outing.’ 

Final Words

This is what we know about bunny girl senpai season 2 till now. However, the anime fans are quite confident that we will soon hear the official announcement for season 2 after the 12th Volume is released.
