Rom-coms centered around school with students as the main characters is a trope that we have seen in numerous animes.
Although this cliché is not going away anytime soon, there is no doubt it’s still effective in many plotlines.
One such series featuring this trope was privy to the Spring 2023 slate as the anime adaption of Yuji Nakamura s’ manga series, Rokudo’s Bad Girls hit the small screens.
The story follows Tosuke Rokudou, a first-year student at a school called Amori High which is mostly attended by delinquents and aspires to live a peaceful life.
However, it’s not as easy as Rokudou thinks, as his classmates constantly bully him due to his incompatibility behavior.
Rokudou s’ life changes when he receives a parcel from his late grandfather that contains their family heirloom scroll.
The scroll is said to be passed down from generation from the Heian period and possesses powers that can save Rokudou from impending danger.
Upon receiving a scroll from his grandfather, Rokudou gains a special pentagram mark on his forehead. Rokudou’s ancestors used this spell to exorcise Oni, but in the modern day, the spell causes any “bad girl” to instantly fall in love with him once he makes eye contact with them.
His school life drastically changes as not only is he thrust into the delinquent culture of his school, but he encounters several girls, each one presenting a new problem.
Can Rokudou achieve his dream of living peacefully despite inheriting the power of attracting delinquent school girls is the central plot of the show.
Rokudo’s Bad Girls Season One was received with mixed reviews however, fans who enjoyed the rom-com are wondering if there will be a second installment or not.

WHAT IS THE ROKUDO’S BAD GIRLS SEASON 2 RELEASE DATE?
Rokudo’s Bad Girls Season One aired from 8th April 2023 to 24th June 2023 for 12 episodes.
As of writing, there is no update from studio Satelight on the renewal of Rokudo’s Bad Girls Season 2.
|Rokudo’s Bad Girls Season 1||8th April 2023|
|Rokudo’s Bad Girls Season 2||Yet to be Announced|
Production Studios consider various financial and commercial metrics before announcing a renewal.
As mentioned earlier, Rokudo’s Bad Girls Season One wasn’t a massive success and failed to break into the top-rated anime list of the Spring 2023 slate.
The major criticism seems to be labeled at the animation quality, especially how the eyes are done, which are depicted as if the characters are wearing eyeliners.
Initially showing promise, the series encountered a decline in quality as the episodes progressed, further evidenced by its inconsistent IMDB user ratings.
|Rokudo’s Bad Girls Episode 1||7.2|
|Rokudo’s Bad Girls Episode 2||7.2|
|Rokudo’s Bad Girls Episode 3||7.5|
|Rokudo’s Bad Girls Episode 4||6.9|
|Rokudo’s Bad Girls Episode 5||6.6|
|Rokudo’s Bad Girls Episode 6||6.9|
|Rokudo’s Bad Girls Episode 7||6.9|
|Rokudo’s Bad Girls Episode 8||7.9|
|Rokudo’s Bad Girls Episode 9||7.1|
|Rokudo’s Bad Girls Episode 10||7.1|
|Rokudo’s Bad Girls Episode 11||7.4|
|Rokudo’s Bad Girls Episode 12||8.1|
Even if the reviews and ratings are not favorable, a crucial factor for renewal will be the availability of studio and source material.
Currently, studio Satelight has three new projects scheduled for 2023 and beyond thus ruling out the chance of Rokudo’s Bad girls Season 2 happening any time soon.
The good news is there is sufficient source material available for the sequel despite the first season ending on a satisfactory note for Rokudou, Ranna, and the gang.
However, the ending of season one did tease more bad girls in the future for Rokudou, which might push studio Satelight to renew for a second season.
The only stumbling block would be the lack of sequels produced by Satelight, as, for one reason or another, the studio doesn’t seem to be keen on renewals.
All in All, if the studio does renew for a sequel, we can expect updates on Rokudo’s Bad Girls Season 2 trailer and Rokudo’s Bad Girls Season 2 release date by 2024.

She also requests to let her be beside him, which surprises everyone and makes them wonder where did the politeness come from.
Despite losing, Doji tells Rokudou to protect, and in return, he will ensure their happiness.
Raino and Kazeno are having normal school life, while the whereabouts of Yashiya are unknown.

During the festival, Ranna calls out everyone s’ names and thanks them as the episode ends with Rokudou knowing that he will meet more bad girls, but he will pull through.
Rokudo’s Bad Girls Season One covered the first 73 chapters of the manga, which means Rokudo’s Bad Girls Season 2 will begin by adapting Chapter 74.
To relieve some stress, Rokudou decides to take the group and Ranna to the arcade.
It’s Ranna s’ first time at the arcade, and she plays the drums while cheering for Rokudou.
After wandering about trying to find the perfect game for Ranna, Rokudou asks her to try the boxing arcade game.
He explains how it works, and the top scorer is a person named CBX with a score of 380, and it’s revealed that CBX is none other than Inuma’s.
