Due to his lack of sleep, Ganta is grumpy and unmotivated, which often leads to others misunderstanding him as being unfriendly.

He stumbles upon a free-spirited and carefree girl named Isaki Magari, who also suffers from a sleeping disorder.

Not wanting to tell someone that she is suffering from insomnia, she uses the astronomical conservatory (Astronomy Club room) as her hiding place.  

After taking Ganta s’ permission, the two became official members of the Astronomy Club, which before her joining, was defunct and abandoned.

Due to their mutual disorders and interest in Astronomy, the two become good friends and to reestablish the Astronomy club.

While the reviews and ratings are positive, a crucial factor for renewal will be the availability of studio and source material.

Unfortunately, the 2023 release schedule for studio Liden Films is stacked with as many as six new animes, which rules out the chances of a swift renewal.

But in some ways, this is also positive news as we can see studio Liden Films is capable of handling multiple projects in a year which is essential for sequels.

If leaks are to be believed, then a popular Chinese microblogging website Weibo, confirmed the news that Insomniacs After School will be getting a sequel.

The studio should not face any problems regarding lack of source material as, at most, 100 chapters are available for producing Insomniacs after School Season 2.

All in All, considering the popularity and studio s’ production capacity, Insomniacs after School Season 2 will most likely happen.

Assuming production begins by the end of 2023, we can expect updates on Insomniacs After School Season 2 trailer and Insomniacs After School Season 2 release date by Spring 2024.

In the finale of Insomniacs after School Season One, “The Oldest Star -Methuselah,” when Isaki’s parents realize that the two love birds are living together without a chaperone, they understandably freak out a little bit.

They tell Isaki that they are coming to pick her up. Seeing Isaki’s distress on being unable to visit the last site and help take the final picture, Ganta decides to ‘kidnap’ her and go to Mawaki’s site, leaving the parents out of the loop.

Under the star-lit sky, in the ruins of a six-thousand-year-old civilization, Ganta finally confesses his feelings to Isaki and gets a positive response from his now-girlfriend. 

Isaki is emotional and suggests Ganta take a picture of her, but they later decide to click on each other with their cameras.

In the epilogue afterward, school is about to begin again after the summer vacations, and Isaki is grounded because of her reckless behavior. 

However, both Ganta and Magari feel better than ever and start to overcome their anxiety about the coming mornings because of their feelings toward one another.

Insomniacs after School Season one covered the first 55 chapters of the manga, which means Insomniacs After School Season 2 will begin by adapting Insomniacs After School Season 2.
