Onimai Season 2
The finale of season one will premiere globally on 23rd March 2023, making fans wonder if there will be another season.
Is there any announcement of the Onimai: I’m Now Your Sister season 2; however, the fans are hopeful that the season will return to the worldwide screen.
According to a tweet by Lonstarx, there has been an announcement of the final episode. Also, the tweet continues by saying there aren’t doubts about the second season and will entertain the fans soon. However, on the other hand, it’s safe that the fans won’t be able to see any Onami after 23rd March.
The renewal of the anime generally depends on the following factors:
- Wide franchise popularity
- Availability of the anime source material
The good news is that both of the above factors favor the making of Onimai season 2. By the way, Studio Bind will be producing the second season.
Onimai Season 1
What’s unique about the Onimai season one is the adaptation of four to five chapters of the original manga series. Currently, 74 chapters have already been published in Japan, while episode 11 of the anime series has covered the manga episodes up to chapter 38.
It means ample content is available for the next season, which international fans would love to watch.
Onimai Season 1 has garnered popularity globally, with an overall rating of 7.4 out of 10 on MyAnimeList, 74 percent on Anilist, and 3.7 out of 5 on Anime-Planet.
The above rating clearly shows that Onimai is the second-highest-scoring anime series from Studio Bind. The first one is Mushoku Tensei on MyAnimeList.
While talking about the highest-rating anime seasons, it’s worth mentioning that the third season of Mushoku Tensei is set to premiere in 2023. It’s another indication of the Onimai Season 2 since the production studio will wrap up their work on the Mushoku Tensei season 3.
Another interesting point to note about the global popularity of Onimai manga is that Kodansha USA has published six volumes of manga in English. Also, the manga is available on the following media.
- Amazon Kindle
- Apple iBooks
- Rakuten Kobo
The manga was originally published online in 2017 by Nefotofu. Later, the production studio announced the anime adaptation in April 2022. The first season of Onimai is directed by Shingo Fujii, while the scriptwriter is the talented Michiko Yokote.
The story revolves around Mahiro Oyami, a self-possessed home security guard who hasn’t left home for several years. Also, he has a sister, Mihari, who is worried about his brother’s mental health and wants him to return to normal life.
The wait time for the second season may be long; however, you can enjoy the final episode titled “Mahiro, the end, and the future” via Crunchyroll globally.
