Will Ao Haru Ride return for season 2?
There is no official news regarding Ao Haru Ride season 2 yet. Season one concluded on 22 September 2014. It’s been six years, and we have not heard anything from the showrunners. What does it mean? Is the series canceled?
Well, of course not friends! They have neither canceled nor renewed the series. Sometimes, the sequel to a manga takes time to arrive. So, it might be a possibility that it is one such manga series. Well, let’s see the possibility of happening, Blue Spring Ride season 2.
Any production house measures the anime on two parameters before renewing it. Firstly, the revenue generated and secondly, the source material. Lets us see if the anime has qualified under both the parameters.
- Is Ao Haru Ride generated enough revenue?
The manga was a blockbuster. More than six million copies of the manga have been sold so far. The anime was released in different countries and generated good revenue for the production house. So, it seems season 2 will be profitable for I.G production. Now, let us move towards the second requirement.
- Is there enough source material to renew the series?
We all know, the manga series is the source material for the anime series. I.G production only adapted four volumes of manga series to produce the anime. There are still nine volumes to created not only one but also two or more seasons.
Moreover, the fans have also find the online petition to renew the series for the second installment. If you want to join the petition, click here. We hope that I.G production will soon be back with Ao Haru Ride season 2, considering all these situations.
