What was the plotline of Hensuki?
Keiki Kiryuu, who has never had a girlfriend in her life, suddenly receives a love letter. He’s happy to have a girlfriend finally, but it’s not written who sent the letter. On top of that, there is also white underwear in the letter. Keiki sets out to search for Cinderella, who left her underwear. Meanwhile, he discovers how perverted the girls who might have sent are.
Although the anime moves slowly at first, it manages to gain the appreciation of the audience in the following episodes. Although the ecchi feature of the series does not show itself in the first episodes, it comes out not bad at all later. It is quite sufficient as a harem. With Ecchi, the harem was made compatible at some point. As a comedy, it can be called average. Hensuki doesn’t have an extraordinary story, but he handles his story correctly. There are also parts of the anime, whose drawings are sweet and successful, where the elements of mystery are used. Fans are eagerly awaiting the second season.
Will there be a second season of Hensuki?
The last update on February 7, 2021: At the time of writing, Geek Toys or any related company has not renewed the series for a second season yet. The last episode of the series was broadcast in September 2019, and no official announcement was made for the second season during this time. It may take years for anime to renew for a new season. We evaluated the second season possibilities of the series under some main factors. However, the result shows us that it is very difficult to see a second season. Let’s take a look together.
As we mentioned before, the anime is a light novel adaptation written by Tomo Hanama and illustrated by Sune. The anime that started airing in 2017 is still ongoing today. So far 12 volumes have been published for the light novel. The light novel continues today and provides enough source material to see a new season. It is not certain whether the series will have a new season, but we recommend the light novel series for those who do not want to wait for renewal.
Disc sales and the other factors
Harem-style anime are usually produced for advertising purposes to support the sales of written sources. Hensuki is one such anime. The popularity of the anime series is 70% based on our metrics. This popularity is enough for a second season.
However, for an anime to be evaluated for a new season, it is expected to reach at least 4,000 in BluRay and DVD sales. It is only considered financially sufficient when it exceeds this number and work can be started for a new season. Disc sales have fallen in recent years, and most popular animes are barely catching this threshold. However, Hensuki could not pass the examination. The anime that sells a single volume only sold 820 discs and considering this number, and the second season does not really seem possible. However, the anime industry is full of surprises, the series still has a fan base, and more than 30 thousand people follow its official Twitter accounts. If the series is renewed for a new season, taking into account the production time, it may return to the screens for a new season in 2022.
