Hitori Bocchi no Marumaru Seikatsu is a beloved anime series that started airing in 2019 in the genre of comedy and slice of life. The anime is inspired by a manga series written and illustrated by the Japanese writer Katsuwo. After Crunchyroll licensed the show, it became available worldwide. HitoriBocchi was created by C2C studio, which has produced successful anime in recent years. We know the studio from other popular anime series such as “WorldEnd: What do you do at the end of the world?” Are you busy? “. More than a year has passed since the anime’s release, and fans are excited about the second season. So, has HitoriBocchi been renewed for a second season?
Hitori Bocchi is someone who has trouble socializing, is not good at talking to people, overly cautious, surprisingly adept at dodging people, cramps in his feet when he makes an excessive effort, feels good when alone. When he is overly nervous, he resents and often finds new plans. Now he will start middle school and his only friend, Yawara Kai, will go to another school. This leaves Bocchi alone and must befriend the classmates around him before Kai speaks to him again.
There is not much speculation for the second season of the series. However, it is a fact that the finale of the series has a feeling of incompleteness. Some fans think a male character was missing in the first season of the show, and maybe a little romance can add color to the second season. Of course, these are only predictions; for now, we will only be able to see what will happen in the second season.
Will there be a second season of the series?
As of December 2020, at the time of writing, the series has not yet been renewed for a second season. It is quite normal for many anime. It can take years for the series to be renewed for a new season. We can speculate about a new season for now. The most critical factors to see a new season of anime are manga status (source material adequacy) and popularity (BluRay DVD sales)
Manga volumes compared to anime
As we mentioned at the beginning of the article, the anime is adapted from the manga written by Katsuwo. The manga series published by ASCII Media Works began to be published in Comic Dengeki Daioh magazine in 2013. The good news is that the manga series is ongoing also today. The series, which is published in 1 volume every year, consists of 6 volumes in total.
The anime series covers Chapters 1-32, 34, 36, and 46 of the manga. This is in the middle of the fourth volume. The manga series consists of 72 chapters in total. In this case, the resource material situation for a new season is a bit critical. In a simple proportion, if the second season of the series will contain as much script as the first season, at least one more manga volume should be published to see a new season.
The anime reviews look average. The series, which got 7.52 points in the Myanimelist, also has a score of 7.0 in the IMDB. But what’s more critical is popularity. The series’ popularity score is 65.3%, according to our metrics. This score does not seem impossible to see a new season.
When is the release date of the second season?
The series has not yet been renewed for a new season, but we are looking at a new season positively as a result of the above assessment. However, we think that the production of the anime will start after at least one more volume is published. This means that we can see a new season of the series only somewhere in 2022. There is no clear news for a new season yet. Till then we recommend the most popular anime series of 2020.
Below you can see two anime productions planned by the anime studio C2C next year, but there are no plans for HitoriBocchi yet. We will update here whenever information comes from the studio.
