Wonder Egg Priority Season 2 Release Date, All you need to know

Wonder Egg Priority is an anime series released in 2021 in the fantasy and the psychological horror genre. The production, which is not a manga adaptation, is original content produced directly as an anime. The anime producer is Shinji Nojima, who has made a name for himself with his popular live-action series. CloverWorks, which we know from many anime series, undertakes the creative studio task. We also know the studio from the beloved animes Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai and Dakaichi. The anime, licensed by Funimation, premiered on NNS on January 13, 2021. In the last part of the series, the gospel was that the anime would have a new special episode. A special episode was met with the audience on June 30, 2021. However, fans are also excited about a new season. Well, could the anime have a second season?

What is the plotline of the anime?

Synopsis: The story begins when our hero, a 14-year-old girl named Ai Ohto, hears a mysterious voice walking around the city late at night. This voice calls him, gives him an egg, and says, “If you want to change the future, you just have to choose now. Now believe in yourself and smash the egg.”

Girls who committed suicide on time come out of the eggs our characters find. Our characters have to end the tragedies of these girls in the given time. They believe that if they succeed, they will be able to resurrect a friend who committed suicide on time.

Will there be a second season of Wonder Egg Priority?

As of December 9, 2021, CloverWorks or any related company has not yet renewed the anime for a second season. Generally, anime follow mangas, and if there is not enough source material available, we have almost no chance to see a new season. However, the fact that the anime has original content, a script can be written by Shinji Nojima for a second season, independent of a magna. There is no problem in terms of source material, but this is not the only criterion for a new season.

Animes are financial products and sometimes created to support the sales of the light novel and manga they were inspired by, and sometimes profit from direct disc sales and exclusive distributors and viewership. Wonder Egg Priority is not distributed by a giant exclusive distributor like Netflix. Therefore, eyes turned to disc sales and general popularity for a second season possibility.

In order for anime to be renewed for a new season, the sales average is generally expected to remain above 4,000 units. When sales number falls short, the decision committee will not approve for a second season, and the studio will not be enthusiastic about this work. Wonder Egg Priority’s first season disc sales began on March 24, 2021. The first volume, which sold 962 units, was well below the targets and expectations. Considering the disc sales, a new season is very unlikely.

When we look at the Google search data to see the anime’s worldwide popularity, we see strong search popularity. So much so that anime is more searched than many popular anime, and the current worldwide popularity is quite enough for a new season. Still, parallel popularity is not available in Japan, and only about 40k people follow the official Twitter account in parallel with disc sales. However, the worldwide expectation may be enough for a new season.
