The ecchi and harem genre is the most popular and most watched genre of all time, and what makes it even more amazing is the mix of comedy and fantasy, the combination of these genres gives you the ultimate fantasy fanservice which you can only appreciate, the entire show was full of controversies but it was quite remarkable and I know millions of fans like are desperately waiting for the 2nd season which may seem very unlikeable but you never know.
Interspecies Reviewers managed to gain popularity quite fast, for a few reasons, of course, the first one being that the show is quite literally full of fanservice. However, it didn’t start out that way, it seemed like the series was headed in a more adventurous way but then it slowly came to what it was really about, it’s definitely an anime for horny people and the comedic aspect of the show makes it quite fun to watch.
So, let’s not waste any more time with the introduction and get right to it, discover what’s been happening in the world of Interspecies Reviewers? Are there any further developments for the in progress and what’s up with Studio Passione?

What is going on with Studio Passione?
The first season of Interspecies Reviewers air from Jan 11, 2020, to Mar 28, 2020, and I remember how the entire internet freaked out, so many people were coming out and speaking against the show being sexist in so many ways, there was even a petition to cancel the show and it somewhat worked… the dubbing studio Funimation responsible of the dub of the series became the direct target of hate and was forced to stop the dub production after the 2nd episode.
Studio Passione is known for creating some of the most popularly controversial animes one of them being Citrus a show about some sexually curious female students who do experiments to find their true selves. Interspecies Reviewers is directed by Ogawa, Yuuki who is known for directing some of the most exotic anime series such as Fooly Cooly, Hajimete no Gal, and Miru Tights all of which were quite popular.
Their ongoing anime show Mieruko Chan is currently the most popular show of Fall 2021 which is another mix of two completely separate genres, it’s a horror show that also has a surprising comedic factor the main character Yotsuya Miko can see ghosts around her but she cannot do anything about them.
What do we know about Interspecies Reviewers Season 2 so far?
The probability of a show either receiving or not receiving a sequel depends on the net profit it made since its official launch, there is no doubt that the series was a big hit, no matter where you look, this was the only show people were talking about during the winter of 2020. Now even though the show made record-breaking sales for being an ecchi show, there still isn’t any news about the 2nd season.
On many streaming services like Crunchyroll, we can see that the series made quite an impact by the number of comments but since there is no way to correctly estimate the data, we still aren’t sure.
On a Source on Reddit, we can see that the Blu-ray disc sold almost 5000 units which is quite a big feat, and because the manga is currently ongoing we might hear some news about the 2nd season very soon.
What are fans saying about Interspecies Reviewers Season 2?
There will always be two kinds one people, firstly those who very much liked the series and gave it a straight 10/10 strictly based on the enjoyment factor and those who were set off by the amount of fanservice and little to no character development of “plot” many fans called this show bland and deemed it worse show than Highschool DxD because it didn’t have a proper storyline.
And of course, there were those people who followed the trend from Twitter, calling the show “sexist” and dropped it after one or two episodes you can read all the reviews on MyAnimeList, the entire show was looked down upon and by self-righteous “twitter people” so even if the show did well, it seems very unlikely that there will be a sequel.
What’s important is that you enjoy what you watch and millions of fans were satisfied, even if people were initially against it, so many of them changed their mind when their cries went unheard and maybe gave them a watch themselves.
Will there be Interspecies Reviewers Season 2?
The manga of the show is going quite strong, racking up more sales with every update, the latest update of the manga is volume 6, including Chapters 43–49 which was released recently on May 8, 202.
However, the anime only covers up to chapter volume 3, chapter 1 so we know that there is a lot of material left for a sequel, perhaps two. If you want to read the manga, I would recommend that you start from the beginning, the anime skipped over most of the manga and you don’t want to miss it.
According to these Google Statistics, the popularity of the show is going strong, with Asian countries being the most invested such as Japan, China, and Korea.
When will Interspecies Reviewers Season 2 be released?
As of right, there are no leads for a sequel, nothing suggests that we will get a 2nd season but let’s not lose hope just yet, Studio Passione just released their latest anime Mieruko which will end before the end of 2021 and there is a chance that we might hear some news regarding the sequel for Interspecies Reviewers.
What can we expect in Season 2 of Interspecies Reviewers?
We already know that the show isn’t anything more than a recurring “sex-positive show”, the main characters set out on adventures to find beautiful women of different species and write about their sexual experience, that is what happened for the entirety of season 1 and it is safe to that say that it’ll be the same for a sequel.
