A long time has passed but the craze and the demand have not declined for Ao Haru Ride Season 2. What is the renewal status of this critically acclaimed series? We have clubbed all the details here, let’s analyze the possibilities of Ao Haru Ride Season 2.
One of the best shojo series of 2014, Ao Haru Ride was an adaptation of the best manga series of 2013-2014. This comedy-drama, also known as Blue Spring Ride, was produced by Production I.G and directed by Ai Yoshimura. We had also seen a different strategy to promote the anime. A limited version drama series was released on 23 May 2014, in the form of 10 volumes CD bundled starring anime cast. Apart from this, the popularity of manga was so high that it received several adaptations during the time. It was adapted for the novelization, a live-action film, and also the CD adaptation. This manga-adapted series managed to hit 7.5 marks on the rating scale of IMDb. Despite this much popularity and appreciation, the anime did not renew for another season, after years of wait also. The fans are still wondering whether there will be another season or if it will be canceled. Let’s find out the possibilities! Will the makers ever set their mind to come back with a brand new season of Ao Haru Ride?
Release Date of Ao Haru Ride Season 2
The fans might be disappointed with the news that the wait is still not over for another season. The creators of anime have kept tight-lipped on the revival of the story. It has been seven years but as per the speculations, it could be an indefinite period as there seems no interest of the makers to return with a new season. Production I.G.has not given any production orders for season 2 of this critically acclaimed series.
There were some gossips that season 2 will not return. To be crisp, this is not true. As season 2 neither received renewal orders nor got canceled. The renewal of any story depends on two major factors.
First is the source material, which gives the negative indication for renewal in this case. The adapted manga ended in 2015 only, and most of the volumes were already adapted. So, this hints towards cancellation. The other major factor that comes in, is the profit graphs and the reception of the story. This factor serves as the hope for another installment. As the series was a big hit and it secured appreciation across the globe.
So, if we conclude there are 50-50 chances. Considering the popularity, the creators may bring another season to our list, or in the lack of content, it may not be revived. Let’s wait for the official announcement on the same, but we keep our hopes high for the story to continue at least with season 2.
