Fans have been asking for a season 2 for a long time, and questions about “when” or will” season 2 of Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-Kun be coming out or not are being asked all over social media. Fans were hopeful because of the anime’s popularity and articles on social media about season 2. However, they think they cannot be sure about season 2 because there are no official announcements.

Furthermore, here is what some fans are saying about Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-Kun Season 2:

Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-Kun is one of the most popular romcoms, and it has a huge fanbase. In 2013, the manga series based on which the anime is based had ranked third on the 15 manga recommended by bookstores. Andy Hanley from Anime Network had given the anime a seven out of ten rating and appreciated the cast for being lovable and charming. It was also rated as one of the best anime of 2014 by Anime News Network reviewers. The manga DVD and Blu-ray sales were excellent, and it is also the studio’s second best seller.

Moreover, the manga on which the anime is based currently has 12 volumes, and it has not officially been canceled yet. Although, the manga has been on a hiatus for a long time because the last chapter came out in 2014. However, the first season only covered the first few volumes. Hence, more than enough source material is available for studio Doga Koba to produce a season 2.

On the other hand, one point of concern is that studio Doga Koba has been very busy with projects in the past few years. They have been busy with producing a handful of anime after Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-Kun. Even currently it is working on the production of five anime which are scheduled to be released in 2022.

Although six years have passed since season one ended, fans should not be disappointed because many anime were even renewed after two decades, such as Fruits Basket. Since the anime has so much popularity and demand from fans, the anime will likely be released.

When will Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-Kun Season 2 be released?

At the end of season one, Sakura quietly confesses her love to Nozaki. She says, “I love you” in a low voice while watching fireworks with him, but he mishears and replies, “I love fireworks too.” Although Sakura again fails to make Nozaki understand her feelings, she is happy that she gets to be by his side.

Season 2 will also be filled with lots of romance and comedy, and of course, a lot more confessions by Sakura which Nozaki will misunderstand. Either way, fans will get to see Sakura and Nozaki work together again along with their friends. As the series progresses, each character grows and understands more. Maybe in season 2, Nozaki will finally start developing feelings for Sakura.
