Jaku-Chara Tomozaki-kun is a romantic comedy anime series that hit the screens in the spring of 2021. There are many light novels and manga series in the romantic comedy genre, which has a special place in Japanese anime culture. Jaku-Chara Tomozaki-kun is also one of the products of this culture. The anime is based on Yūki Yaku’s light novel series of the same name. The studio responsible for the adaptation of the series to the anime is “Project No. 9” that we know from “Ryuuou no Oshigoto!” and “High School Prodigies Have It Easy Even In Another World“. Originally aired on AT-X, Tokyo MX, BS11 local networks from January 8, 2021, to March 26, 2021, the anime is licensed by Funimation. In this way, it is wondered whether the anime, which won viewers worldwide, will now have a second season. Let’s take a look at the series and see what we know about the second season so far.

What is the plotline of the Jaku-Chara Tomozaki-kun?
Fumiya Tomozaki, a 16-year-old high school student, is one of the best gamers in Japan. But real life is one of the worst games, according to Fumiya, and there are no strict rules for success, terribly balanced, and nothing makes sense. However, he later meets Aoi Hinami, a gamer who is just as good as him and is his classmate, and offers to teach him how to take advantage of others.
Will there be a second season of the anime?
The anime’s first season was completed on March 26, 2021. In the short time that has passed, as of May 2021, anime studio Project No.9 or manga publisher, Shogakukan has yet to renew the anime for a second season. Sometimes in the first season finals, the anime can please their fans with the renewals, but this is not the case for Jaku-Chara Tomozaki-kun. If you’re not a newbie anime audience, you know that it can take years for the anime to be refreshed for a new season. We’ve speculated for a second season of the anime, and we have some concerns as a result. Let’s take a look together at some key factors.
Light novel status of the anime?
The anime is directly inspired by the light novel. Therefore, it is important how much source material the written work contains in order to see a new season of the anime. Written by Yūki Yaku and illustrated by Fly, the light novel series began to air on May 18, 2016. The last volume of the series, which includes 9 volumes in total, was published on January 19, 2021. The good news is that the light novel series is still ongoing. We know that the anime has been adopted until the end of the 3rd volume so far. The manga contains enough stock material for a new season of the anime and will not be an obstacle for creating a new season.
Disc sales and the popularity of the anime
Although, with the increase in exclusive distributors and online anime watching habits in recent years, disc sales are not as strong a criterion as before. But still, BluRay and DVD sales are good data to see the popularity in Japan. Generally, an anime is expected to sell 4,000 copies to get a new season confirmation. However, disc sales were far from successful for Jaku-Chara Tomozaki-kun. 2 volume discs were sold so far. The anime sold 773 units in the first volume and 540 in the second volume. It seems that the possibility of a new season in terms of disc sales is very unlikely.
According to the Myanimelist data of anime, the popularity rank is 836, and when this is converted to a score, we see a popularity score of 71.0%. However, this is not the only data we look at. 69.1K people are following the anime on their official Twitter account (@tomozakikoshiki). Finally, when we look at the popularity of anime in Google searches, we see an average search volume. In summary, we can say that the popularity of the series in all metrics is average.
When is the second season of the anime?
The anime has not yet been renewed for a second season, but we see a 50% chance for a new season of the anime as a result of our evaluation. Usually, romantic comedy animes are produced for light novel advertisements. Disc sales and popularity may not seem strong enough to get a second season confirmation, but the surprises never end in the anime world. We will be spying on official statements. If the anime is renewed for a new season, it is possible to see a new season in 2023 after preparations.
