Hello, this is Kadir. I am the lead author of the blog you are reading. My fondness for TV series and Anime made me a good researcher about the release dates. I like to share my researches and analyses on the blog.


  1. This was very informative and I hope to see a new season of The Helpful Fox Senko-san.

  2. I’m addicted to this anime, so please have decisions for a new season. I want more season.

  3. I am an emotional person, and I cried while watching. Anime, movies, animation, everything such as this anime, which friends leave, makes me emotional. This anime was beautiful too, and I was sad that it ended, but I was happy when Senko-san, Nakano, and others came together. It should definitely be a second season.

  4. I really loved the anime and cried at the last episode because it was ending, and of how much I got clingy, I got to the characters that it was just sad that it ended, and I would love it if they made another season.

  5. I beg the producers not to cancel the anime. I’ve been looking forward to this set for two years now, and when I heard it might cancel it, I was disappointed. A lot of people feel the same disappointment as me. I think this series is not bad but great, but the end the author made is quite vague, so I hope the author will come out ss2.

  6. I really love this show myself. I’m almost finished with the season, so I’m trying t pro lounge it to make it last ill watch the season finale tonight please bring another season o this beloved show; I’m actually usually not that much into anime, but this heart-worming classic changes all of that, please make a season 2 of this amazing fan-favorite show I beg of you!

  7. This was a work of art and dedication. Despite being known only to have around 63 chapters, the author hasn’t given up yet. He’s still going on, and the latest 70th chapter was thrilling as well. As far as I can collect the source material, websites like Mangadex, Manganelo, and a lot of manga websites have given Senko-san a shot, and the number of views has jumped up. It’s really depressing and appreciating that the anime might not come this year (2021) but the next year, but the good news is that with plenty of material to go through, the production would really work out as lots of manga readers are already enthralled by the way of the last episode and the recent chapter. Best of luck to all the people who have worked sleepless nights to bring this awesome masterpiece to such a peak of existence.
