What is the plotline of Nekopara?
Kashou Minaduki, the son of a long Japanese confectionery maker, sets out to open his own patisserie “La Soleil”. While opening his belongings, he finds two catgirls that his family secretly raised in the box. Chocola and Vanilla. Although he initially wanted to send them back, he could not stand their insistence, and they started operating La Soleil together. His time is very good with his sister Shigure and other cat girls of the family, Azuki, Maple, Cinnamon, and Coconut. One day, when Chocola goes out for some work, he runs into a kitten. And the story started there.
Will there be a second season of the Nekopara?
The Funimation licensed anime has not yet been renewed for season 2. If such productions are not renewed for a second season in about one year, mostly reduce hopes. So what is required to see the second season? These are simply; manga status, popularity, and indirect financial reasons.
How about the Manga & Visual Novel Game?
The series is not actually a manga adaptation. There is a manga adaptation published by Dengeki G’s Comic. But Visual novel, developed by Sekai Project, is the main source material for the series. This product, which is also found on game consoles, has been released in 4 volumes in total. New volumes continue to be published, and we see an average of one volume per year.
The best thing in this anime was the ending cards made by friends or people that Sayori admires. (like the artist of the Rance series that Sayori is a big fan of) Volume 4 was announced for this year, so yeah, We think it will be before season 2. We think the anime, mobile, and visual novel are different universes even though the producers don’t state like this way.
It is worth mentioning, by the way, that the animation studio is a small team, and they are currently working on the anime Otherside Picnic, which they will release in January.
Anyway, the possible source material for a new season of the series seems to not occur until 2022, or the production team could create a second season with a cut story. With a possible renewal, the series could hit theaters in early 2022, but this is unlikely for now.
How were the reviews of the series?
The story has its game and OVA. Fans mostly started the series after the two. If there are those who do not watch, we recommend it because you will find more than anime in quality in these productions.
Although the anime’s character concept is like BNA, it does not seem to provide the same quality. Cats, however, no one could feel them as cats. The series cannot be evaluated as good in terms of character development.
According to the IMDb user ratings of the series, its rating is very low, and it was rated by a few users.
If it is not possible to see a second season of the series, we recommend two similar anime. Uchi no Ko no Tame naraba, Ore wa Moshikashitara Maou mo Taoseru kamo Shirenai.
