Kanojo, Okarishimasu: will anime have a second season?

Kanojo, Okarishimasu second season

Welcome once again to a new analysis. This time we will analyze if the anime Kanojo, Okarishimasu will have a second season.

But before starting with the analysis, I remind you that what we will see here is my opinion based on facts and data that we will analyze soon.

Well, first of all, let's learn a little more about this popular series, which is an adaptation of the manga, under the same name, written and illustrated by Reiji Miyajima, which was first published on July 12, 2017 in Shūkan Shōnen Magazine. And, currently, 17 compilation volumes have been published.

At the end of 2019 it was announced that the manga was going to have an adaptation to the anime, which was finally released on July 11th and since then it can be seen on the streaming platform Crunchyroll.

Now, to understand a little about whether or not a series can get a sequel, we must ask ourselves, what is the purpose for which an animated adaptation is made? The answer: to increase sales, whether it is a manga, light novel, video game or any other product.

Based on that, from the beginning it was known that this animated adaptation was aimed at increasing the sales of the manga, which by the way, before the first episode of the anime was broadcast, around 2,500,000 copies had already been sold, and after the anime's release, sales doubled. Now more than 5 million copies have been sold.

So far, it can be said that the anime has fulfilled its goal. It has been a total success on the part of the animation studio (TMS Entertainment) and the publisher. And based on that, one could say that the anime would have a continuation, in fact, it would be the most logical thing, since the manga is selling well, the anime has a good amount of viewers and has everything necessary for a continuation. However, that would not be all and neither is the most important thing to continue the story.

First of all, you must analyze if there is still more material that can be adapted, in fact, that is the most important thing for an animated adaptation, otherwise the anime would not be very viewed and would generate many losses for the animation studio.

So, here comes the second question: Is there still more manga history that can be adapted for a continuation of the anime? Well, let's analyze.

Currently the manga is on air and 156 chapters have been published and it's still a while to go, probably about 100 chapters or so. To know that, we would have to do another analysis, but let's leave that for another day. The important thing is that there is material to adapt. But is this material enough to give continuity to the anime?

Well, this is a crucial point. An anime adapts an average of 48 manga chapters. In this case, the anime Kanojo, Okarishimasu will probably adapt up to chapter 50 of the manga, since the series will have 12 episodes.

And continuing with that margin, the manga has 156 chapters, and if the manga is adapting almost 50 chapters, then there would still be 106 chapters to adapt and the logical thing is that a new season will come out to adapt the following chapters. BUT THIS IS NOT THE CASE.

Here I will add an additional point, and although I think it is obvious what I will say, I will still emphasize it. It is important that an anime leaves in the viewer the desire to want to see more, leave emotion, hype and everything needed to hook them even more with the story. And for the good luck of Kanojo, Okarishimasu, the anime is leaving all those feelings in the spectator, which generates that everybody wants a continuation. But unfortunately, THE FOLLOWING CHAPTERS OF THE MANGA DO NOT FULFILL THAT RULE ALREADY.

Basically, the anime is adapting the most exciting part of the manga. And there are still about 20 more chapters where there is still some excitement, since practically all the main characters appear. But there comes a point when one of the main characters stops appearing and the story has an unexpected twist, it still keeps the same essence of the beginning, but it changes in some way.

So, based on that, if this first season is adapting almost 50 chapters, then the next season will adapt up to chapter 100, 101 or maybe a little less, but more or less that's the average. And for those who have read the manga, you should know that the endings of those chapters do not leave a good ending for a season. The second season would have an unfinished ending, and that's something that nobody wants.

So, up to this point, you can have a better idea that a second season is unlikely. But what would happen if a new season were still to be adapted? Well, then it will probably happen the same thing that happened with the second season of the anime Bokutachi wa Benkyō ga Dekinai, which had an alternative ending, and it was the best thing that could be done, since as you know, the author of the manga is doing alternative endings for each of its protagonists, which is not the case of the manga Kanojo, Okarishimasu.

So, basically, that would be the same scenario that Kanojo, Okarishimasu would have if a second season was made, which would not be to the liking of many, because nobody likes to have the end of a story changed, or who knows, maybe some people do. But that's a risk that no animation studio would want to take.

So a second season is very, very unlikely to happen, as there is not enough material to leave a good ending of the season. There are plenty of manga chapters, but not with a suitable ending for a sequel. And if you don't believe me and consider that the analysis I'm doing is meaningless, then I suggest you read the manga and maybe you can find some credibility in my words.

And as I mentioned at the beginning, the goal of the anime was always to "increase the sales of the manga". And that's a goal that's already been achieved. The manga is having a lot of sales and even the mangaka is publishing a spin-off of his work under the title of Kanojo, Hitomishirimasu, which represents how well the manga is doing.

So, to finish, I can only tell you to enjoy the anime, and if you want to know what will happen, then read the manga (that's one of the best hooks that anime leaves, one always wants to know what will happen next).

Note: At the moment, there is no official announcement of a continuation of the anime. Usually, this information is revealed in the final episode of the series, which in this case is episode 12 and will air on September 25th. We may have some information there.
