What is the plotline of the Senryu Girl?
Yukishiro Nanako is a lovable and cheerful high school student, but he has a strange personality. She expresses her feelings by writing senryu (a type of haiku) poems rather than verbal communication. Together with the former criminal, Busujima Eiji, they are the new talent of the Literature Club. Although Nanako does not speak, this cute couple will have a fun school life with 5-7-5 syllables.
Senryuu Shoujo is the dictionary equivalent of a cookie. Even if it does not satisfy a hundred percent, it’s definitely an enjoyable anime to watch. The scenario is based entirely on Nanako and Eiji’s daily lives; almost all episodes follow the following formula:
An event occurs around Nanako and Eiji or someone close to this couple, and after events, Nanako and Eiji are more get closer. At first glance, this formula seems to cause the anime to become routine and boring as the episodes progress, but it does not in this anime.
Will there be a second season of Senryu Girl?
At the time of writing, the manga publisher or licensees have yet to renew the anime for a second season. Although the fact that the anime has not been renewed for a new season for over a year has discouraged the fans, sometimes the anime can be renewed years later. We can speculate about the new season for now. Our main criteria are the popularity of the series, reviews, and manga status.
Manga status of the anime
As we mentioned at the beginning of the article, Senryu Girl is an adaptation of a manga written and illustrated by Masakuni Igarashi. Like many popular anime, the manga has been publishing in Weekly Shōnen Magazine by Kodansha. Manga does not have any English publishers but has fan translations. Published between October 19, 2016 – April 22, 2020, the manga consists of 13 volumes in total. The last volume of the manga was released on June 17, 2020, and is not ongoing anymore.
The anime’s first season covered 49 chapters of the manga. This chapter coincides with the end of the third volume. The manga series currently consists of 185 chapters in total, and it means that there is pretty enough source material for a second season. The most reasonable ending point for the second season looks like chapter 103 in terms of story. This point is critical to the story and a suitable point for the finale. There seem to be enough source materials for a third season afterward.
When is the release date of the second season?
The anime has enough resources for a second season. When we look at its reviews, anime got a good rating with user ratings on IMDB and Myanimelist, and its popularity score is 61.8%. This score is a critical score but seems enough to see a second season. Although there is no renewal yet, we are positive for the second season.
All the anime created by Studio Connect have been popular anime, and after airing, the studio released OVA episodes and did not continue with the second season. However, an OVA episode was not released for Senryu Girl. This could be a signal for the second season. The studio has not yet released a plan for 2021, but if a renewal comes, it is possible to see a new season at the end of 2021.
If you don’t want to wait for the anime, we highly recommend the manga series. Because the opinions are that the anime skipped many important chapters and the manga series is much more detailed.
