But fate turns out to support the boy and sends him an acquaintance with Yu Mizuno, a guy who, without a memory, adores another character of “Sanrio” – Rabbit May Mélodi. Soon, Kota gets to know a few more fellow admirers of “Sanrio” products. But, unfortunately, they are all big companies trying to overcome their embarrassment because of their touching idolatry to plush animals.
Sanrio Boys Season 2: Renewal Status
The fans have been looking for the sequel’s whereabouts ever since the completion of its inaugural season. However, they are yet to find it as the makers are pretty tight-lipped regarding the future of the series. Neither the production company nor the author of the manga series has revealed anything regarding sanrio boys season 2. Therefore, now the audience has begun to get impatient as they’ve already waited for two years. So, now they are asking serious questions from the makers and want to know the renewal status of this show which has not been revealed so far.
Is There Enough Source Material?
Sanrio Boys is a media franchise comprised of anime, manga, and video games. Mangaka Mai Ando is still working on his popular manga series. The first volume of the manga came out in 2016. Since then, the author has published a total of five volumes. However, it has been two years since the release of its last volume. Out of these five, the first season of the anime has covered content from over three volumes. Therefore, now Studio Pierrot does not have enough source material to make Sanrio Boys Season 2. But they will have good content after a few volumes of the manga come out.
Sanrio Boys Season 2: Will The Anime Return?
The inaugural season of sanrio boys anime received a positive response from the critics. The viewers liked the show as well. It has an average rating of 6.62 on MAL. Everything about the performance of the anime series is fine. However, the viewers will not see its second season anytime soon due to the lack of its source material. It has been two years since the release of its last manga volume and the anime series’s conclusion. Since there has been no activity, its popularity has decreased gradually. Therefore, for now, it is likely that the anime series will not return for Sanrio Boys Season 2.
