What was the plotline of If My Favorite Pop Idol Made It to the Budokan?
The drama is about a girl obsessed with a member of a not-so-popular band and is so obsessed that she will die to see her idol perform at Budoukan.
Eripiyo, one of our series’s main heroes, is a young girl who spends all her time on CDs, concerts, and events. He is devoted to a member of the group he is in love with. The young girl, who does not spend anything, does not even buy herself a new outfit and spends all her money to support the group she is a fan of. Unable to control the level of obsession, the girl sometimes even thinks about selling her organs. Watching this girl’s story in the first season was an interesting feeling.
Will there be a second season of the anime?
The anime series has not yet been renewed for a second season. The anime series is, as we said before, a manga adaptation. The manga series written by Auri Hirao began to be published in the magazine ‘Monthly Comic Ry’ in August 2015. The good news is the is manga series is still ongoing. The last volume for the manga series, published in 6 volumes in total, was published in 2019.
So is there enough source material for anime? The answer is no yet, the first season of the series consisted of 12 episodes and covered four volumes of the manga. There are only two volumes left, and it is not enough for a second season yet. In addition, the popularity of the series must increase before we can see a new season. Sufficient resource material will be completed by 2022. It is not possible to see a new season before this date.
On the other hand, the anime studio’s other product That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime has managed to get approval for its second season. The production, which will return to the vision at the beginning of 2021, delighted the fans, but the difference in popularity between the two anime is very high.
