The March 2016 issue of Dragon Magazine, which will go on sale on January 20, has announced that the main anime staff of Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata (Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend) will return for the previously announced sequel.

Staff
Director: Kanta Kamei (Dimension W)
Series Composition, Script: Fumiaki Maruto (Classroom☆Crisis)
Character Design: Toshiaki Takase (Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata)
Music: Hajime Hyakkoku (K-On!)
Studio: A-1 Pictures

The magazine will also include a clear file folder (pictured) illustrated by Kurehito Misaki. Although the sequel's release format has not been announced, users on the message board 2chan speculate that the presence of a series composition role may mean that the sequel will also be a TV series.

The romance comedy-drama series is based on the light novels of the same name, which have been publishing since 2012. There are nine volumes of the light novels in print.

Defiantly excited for the second season.
I loved the first season because it was such a fresh breath of air. It didn't have an overly complex story, pretty easy to follow. Funny scenes, just an overall fun time watching it.
Kato Megumi is one of the best main heroines in the romance genre for simply being a different approach as apposed to being a standard archetype.
Hope its as good or better than the first ^_^

I didn't really 'LOVE' the first season. But it was decent enough to give the sequel a watch. I mean, i figured it was a possibility for it to get a sequel. I was hoping for it so I can see them finish their visual novel (or whatever it was).

More Megumi Kato means a happy life.

As long as they keep the formula the same with the great humor, animation and the likes, I will not say no to another season with the team!

You're trying way too hard.
thanks for explain it better than me. i don't understand what is wrong with my method, but people suddenly jumping to assume i see this series is bad still left me speechless.
moodie was just trying to look smart/superior. He does that everywhere, don't mind it.

Time for the Utaha feels ㅠㅠ.

Glad it is coming back but I still fucking hate Aki.

As long as they keep the art style (character design and color palette) then I can't ask for more tbh.

As expected, not much as change.

Now that only leaves the release date, can't wait!

i drop it in first episode, of course i can't judge it. that's why i don't said anything about it being bad or good. if people like it, of course there is something appealing reason behind it. i would admit first impression is not everything. but that's why i prefer waiting. this series get good welcoming, that's why there is probability my first impression wrong.

What kind of reasoning is that? "I didn't like it but if there's second season I have to watch it after all". When you eat something bad you get seconds because there's more where that came from?

Honestly I can't wait to see season 2. First one was pretty good.

Jan 18, 2016 5:11 PM by Antearion

Can't wait for this, I need to take my daily dose of Matsuoka x Kayano and Matsuoka x Oonishi :D

Actually quite looking forward to this.

Hoping for more to happen and for the MC to be more likable next season, he was pretty ok in the Utaha manga.
