Overtake does well to mix both slice of life and sports drama which keeps the viewers hooked throughout its 12-episode run as evidenced by its IMDB user episode ratings.

The plotline is interesting and the characters are engaging which allows even the non-sports fan to enjoy the series.

The decision to renew a television show, such as Overtake Season 2, is a complex process that is based on a number of factors likes studio and source material.

Studio Troyca is a minor production house with limited production capacity as a result operate on one-anime-per-year policy.

Additionally, the studio has only produced sequel for one anime in the form of Idolish7 and cater more towards releasing original work.

Currently, Troyca has listed Atri: My Dear Moments as part of the 2024 schedule which effectively rules out Overtake Season 2 for next year.

Also, Overtake is an original work and has no readymade source material to adapt further dimming the chance of a sequel.

But if we consider the ending of season one, there is no requirement for a sequel as it provided a satisfactory closure for all the characters.

All in All, the chance of Overtake Season 2 happening are relatively low But Seeing the popularity of this anime among fans, we predict that Overtake Season 2 will come, but it will be interesting to see when Overtake Season 2 will be released.

In the final episode of Overtake Season One, titled “Overtake”, Kouya was able to pull through and heal himself. He continued to click pictures.

Haruka finally fulfilled his dream and won the race thus presenting a perfect tribute to his father.

In the process, Haruka became kinder and was able to accept help from others. Tokumaru realized his mistake and quit running after the win no matte what the cost.

Despite the satisfactory ending, some fans felt the finale felt a bit stilted as the aftermath of final race was not revealed.

But considering the main theme of the series revolved around Kouya s’ character change and transformation, the ending was justified.

Since there is no source material available for creators, an entire new plotline would need to written for Overtake Season 2; which lets say is highly unlikely to happen.
