Higehiro Season 2: Is There Enough Source Material?

HigeHiro Season 2 renewal status explored!

Rom-coms are a fan-favorite genre within the anime community, as, despite some over-the-top antics, one can relate to the characters and their stories.

Recently, rom-com such as Bottom-Tier Character Tomozaki, My Dress-Up Darling, and Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai have become incredibly popular in the fandom.

Similarly, Summer 2021 was privy to one such popular rom series as the anime adaption of Shimesab s’ light novel, Higehiro: After Being Rejected, I Shaved and Took in a High School Runaway hit the small screens.

The plot follows Yoshida, a 26-year-old IT salaryman who one day confesses his feelings to a senior named Gotou Airi at the workplace.

However, it turns out Airi is already seeing someone else, which brings Yoshida s’ five years of unrequited love to an end.

Following the disappointment, Yoshida heads to a bar for a drink and vents his frustration to his colleague Yoshimoto.

As it starts to get late, Yoshida makes his way home, and while returning, he spots a high school girl, Sayu.

The male individual proceeded to approach the young female and inquired as to her purpose for being present at such a late hour. He suggested that it would be prudent for her to return home. The young girl responded by conveying that all the train services had ceased operating for the night.

Sayu has a brief debate with Yoshida on where she should go, and eventually, the latter agrees to let her stay at his place for free despite the girl offering herself as payment.

The next day, Yoshida wakes up with clear head and no memory of last night. Sayu explains what happened and how she ended up in his apartment.

Yoshida finds it hard to let Sayu go and thus begins a journey as an underage high schooler and a heartbroken salaryman.

The first season of HigeHiro received positive feedback from both reviewers and critics. Upon the conclusion of the season, fans expressed their curiosity regarding the possibility of a second installment.

The renewal of our project is contingent upon the availability of studio and source material, despite the positive reviews, ratings, and profits. This factor plays a crucial role in determining the future prospects of our project and should be taken into consideration.

Unfortunately, season one adapted the entire light novel, and hence there is no source material left for producing HigeHiro Season 2.

It is worth noting that the author has commenced writing a new epilogue, entitled “Hige wo Soru: Another Side Story,” which unfolds several years after the main story and reunites Yoshida with a mature Sayu. The narrative will revolve around Yuzuha Mishima and Airi Gotou, providing an in-depth exploration of their characters.

The statement made by Shimesab regarding the spin-off work and forthcoming updates on ‘various things’ has been noted. The author expressed their satisfaction on closing the chapter on the story of Mishima and Gotou. We look forward to receiving further updates on this matter.

Even if the epilogue gets completed, studio Project No.9 has a packed schedule with four new projects set to release later this year.

Furthermore, the studio isn’t known for producing sequels which could spell bad news for fans hoping for new Higehiro: After Being Rejected I Shaved and Took in a High School Runawa Season 2 characters and plotlines.

The best fans can expect for any form of HigeHiro content is perhaps an OVA or movie, which could be made for promotional purposes for the epilogue.

All in All, it is highly unlikely that HigeHiro Season 2 will be happening, and consequently, it’s pointless waiting for any updates on HigeHiro Season 2 trailer and HigeHiro Season 2 release date.
