What do we know about Mysterious Girlfriend X Season 2 so far?
Unfortunately, many years have passed, but there’s been no teaser; the studio and writer have remained tight-lipped about Season 2.
There are no rumors following its release or plot either.
What are fans saying about Mysterious Girlfriend X Season 2?
Mysterious Girlfriend X Season 2 is desired by many fans, that if you only search its name on social media, you’ll see many posts by various accounts requesting Season 2. Fans couldn’t wait any longer and even started a petition on change.org for making a second season of the anime.
Although it’s been so long since season one ended, the anime left an impression on fans, and they have been so desperate for Season 2 that they even tried to find ways to contact the studio to request Season 2. Fans are frustrated and perplexed about why the show hasn’t received Season 2, despite a large fanbase. Funds have been created forums on social media to discuss any possibilities of a Mysterious Girlfriend X Season 2.
Will there be Mysterious Girlfriend X Season 2?
Even after more than ten years of Season 1, the anime has remained popular, proven by Google Trends. Mysterious Girlfriend X has a huge fanbase worldwide, and they are loyal to the show, which is why they have been requesting a second season since 2012.
The manga’s serialization started on March 25, 2006, and ended on September 25, 2014. In these eight years, twelve volumes have been published, which equal to ninety-one manga chapters. The first season had only covered up the first six volumes of the manga. Hence, there are still six volumes available for making a second season. So, there is enough source material to make a thirteen-episode Season 2 and provide a conclusion to the story. Moreover, the anime has a 7.24 rating on myanimelab, which is good enough for an anime to have a second season.
However, the main reason the chances of Season 2 are significantly low is that its manga has ended. Anime is created to boost the sale of its manga, but if the manga has ended, then there is little to no reason for the creators to make its Season 2. Furthermore, a long time has passed since the anime ended, and the creators have still not shown any interest in producing Season 2, which again lowers the speculations of Season 2.
Considering all of these factors, it can be concluded that the chances of a Mysterious Girlfriend Season 2 are almost zero. It is indeed quite sullen news for all the fans out there who have been demanding Season 2 for so long. All they can do is put more pressure on the studio for Season 2.
Who knows? Perhaps a miracle could happen.
When will Mysterious Girlfriend X Season 2 be released?
The second season of Mysterious Girlfriend X will not be coming out. Hence, there is no release date for it.
What Can We Expect In Season 2 Of Mysterious Girlfriend X?
There has been no teaser of Mysterious Girlfriend X Season 2, so the plot cannot be confirmed.
However, if it follows the manga, the anime will continue to show that Urabe and Tsubaki develop a stronger bond. The manga foreshadows that the couple stays together forever, which means the second season will be filled with more romantic and comedy scenes. There still hasn’t been a scene of them kissing in the first anime, so the creators might listen to the fans’ demands and finally show a kissing scene of the young couple.
