I haven't seen it but my guess is: Light novel anime adaptations are meant to boost hte original source and it did boost it. S2 won't come m8 unless the LN is going to sell terrible

Really surprised to see Orange publishing another volume, nearly 2 years after it ended. I'm happy that it sold nicely. I guess this will really be the last volume of the series.

More sales means less likely to get adaptation. Adaptations are to bring attention to the series to sell more manga.

I think Nobuna is in the perfect position to get a second season. Prayingggg.

Probably because it's publishing again? Not sure tho.

People who are saying: "Gosh! Why is my favorite manga/novel being sold so poorly?" Consider the fact that some manga/novels don't issue each months, so in the month of its issue sells are much higher. For example attack on Titan issues once every 3-4 month
