I thought Barakamon was one of the more popular manga in Japan? Like the broad reaching type of manga that even casuals and normies read. Why aren't they rushing to make more seasons of it?

Because anime is viewed mainly as a marketing tool to many studios. Chances are if they don't make a second season, people will be more willing to buy the manga.

Either that, or it actually wasn't that popular. Lots of series seem popular when people outside of Japan view it, but actually did terribly. Nichijou is an easy example, that anime did TERRIBLY despite being held in such high regard

First season was great, I’ll probably pick up the manga so I can see how it ends. I was hoping the anime would get a second season at some point so this is unfortunate.

Hey..... please make the season 2 already.
The source is more than enough you know.

Yeah. It must be dreaming


There's no reason for a second season to be made if it wasn't when it was serialized.


Ikr, you know.... the manga is already going far away comparing the anime adaptation. 18 vs 5/6 vol lol

For me, its two volumes left to read.... i hope it can be released faster in my country

Worst of all the undeserving MiA got a sequel announcement. (even though they got funds and fame from Barakamon)


Lol, comparing actual unique masterpiece to your better than average SoL. Though Barakamon is great, it's nowhere MiA.

Oh crap, this is the worst news in 2018. Oh wait, the worst was actually not having a news for second season.
EDIT: Wait how can this be 10 year publication when it would end in January 2019? (Manga started on February 2009.)
