Project_MkUltra said: It depends on how well the BD's sell. Anyone know the status yet?
BDs are likely to sell quite poorly. Ben-To wasn't ranked in any of the daily charts and the pre-order numbers were quite underwhelming. Unless this gets a US license and it sells like crazy hear, I'm very doubtful of a 2nd season happening.
I'd watch a second season, but I'm not going to hold my breath for one. They already seemed to be running awfully low on ideas at the latter end of the first season, and really failed to expand on the few good ones they did have...
I'm not too sure if there's enough substance for a season 2 to be honest.
IMO, the characters frankly didn't stand out too much and the plot is basic enough to get attention - new elements would have to be encorporate in order to justify more ep's about the same subject.
I know a manga is running and I'm not sure of the content, but maybe, if the characters got some development and the set-up of 'the rookie becoming the master' (which was clear from the start) was challenged, then maybe.
Still, I'd probably watch season 2.
Truthfully I don't really want to see a second season,not that I don't like the series, I just don't want to that nicely wrapped up ending go to waste. I would however like to see 2-3 ova's to wrap up the Ume story. I can already see her enter at the end of a battle Satou wins, knock him out and take the prize with a ''can I take this'' at the end.

Unless they come up with another powerfull wolf, but then they're going in repetition.
It's fine as it's right now.
But I wouldn't say no to a second season
Pretty much this. I don't think the show was necessarily designed to include at 2nd season, and as a result, would probably not turn out so well. But I'm not about to boycott the creation of one. The whole show's concept was pretty quirky and original, so maybe they could continue with something unexpected.
While it might be fun to see a little more of this absurdity, I'm not convinced that a second season is needed. In recent anime, I like how the creators don't usually beat concepts to death; they create a concise and compact series, and then they move on to something else. Some concepts can hold their own for more episodes than others. Unless the creators of Ben-To bring in some fantastic new ideas, I think the idea has largely run its course, and it was tied up nicely in the final episode. If the series were to be resurrected, there would be a risk of creating just more of the same, and it would rapidly become as stale as a bento that has been left on the shelf for days.
If more episodes appear, I'll probably check them out, but I won't have high expectations.
I really really really really really (hoping saying really a bunch of times will miraculously make it happen) really really really want a season 2. F if I had a bunch of cash I'll pay the people who produced this to make a second season.
