As ‘Rascal Does Not Dream Of Bunny Girl Senpai’ has moved onto giant streaming sites across the world, the series’ popularity has grown. Now everyone is wondering if it will return for season 2.
The anime series is based on a light novel of the same name which was released in 2014. It was then followed by a manga in 2015 and an anime in 2018.
The series is directed by Soichi Masui and follows the premise of a young man who sees a girl dressed as a bunny. He soon finds out he is the only one that is able to see her and tries to solve this mystery.
Rascal Bunny Girl Senpai Season 2: Renewal and release date
At the time of writing, Rascal Bunny Girl Senpai has not been renewed for Season 2. However, HITC believes the series will return due to high demand.
Season 1 was given ratings of 4.8 on Google Reviews, 4.9 on Crunchyroll and 8.2/10 on IMDB. This is paralleled by its highly rated manga series. As both manga and anime are incredibly well received by fans, the series producers would be remiss to pass on a series renewal.
Should the series be renewed, we expect that it will return in the winter of 2022. The reason for this is that the remaining novels have not yet been adapted into English versions. This being the case we can assume more of the light novel would be released before another season of the anime as the series has adapted most of the novel’s content.
Plot and cast for Season 2
Please note: This article contains spoilers!
The first season followed the light novel closely and adapted 5 of the volumes, while the movie adapted volumes 6 & 7. As there are 11 novels in total there is more material for the showrunners to adapt into the anime.
As the movie showed a big event for Shoko as part of a continuation of the anime, we can expect the series to pick up where the movie leaves off as Sakuta and Shoko are both able to survive at the end.
Fans can also expect new characters to be introduced as shown in each volume of the manga as it would likely pick up from volume 8, titled ‘Rascal Does Not Dream of a Sister on an Outing’.
It would also be expected many of the cast would return such as:
- Kaito Ishikawa as Sakuta Azusagawa
- Yurika Kubi as Kaede Azusagawa
- Yama Uchida as Yuma Kunimi
- Inori Minase as Shoko Makinohara
- Asami Seto as Mai Sakurajima
- Atsumi Tanezaki as Rio Futaba
- Nao Toyama as Tomoe Koga
- Maaya Uchida as Nodoka Toyoham
In addition to this, we can expect to see some new faces.
