Sasaki To Miyano Season 2, when will it happen? Before movies featuring Boy s’ love became prevalent, anime and mangas were considered the frontier for depicting romantic stories of male protagonists.
Often called Yaoi in Japan is an anime genre that portrays the homoerotic relationships between male characters.
Despite being considered taboo in some parts of the world, there is a sizeable chunk of the fanbase who enjoy Yaoi animes.
One such series was privy in the Winter 2022 slate as the anime adaption of Sho Harusono s’ manga, Sasaki to Miyano, hit the small screens.
The story follows a first-year student, Miyano, from an all-boys school whose first day is eccentric as he witnesses another student getting bullied.
Before he can intervene, a second-year student named Sasaki steps in and breaks up the fight.
In the coming months, the two boys become friends and begin commuting to school together.
Sasaki asks for manga recommendations, and Miyano reveals his love for the Yaoi genre, leading to him routinely lending him copies of his favorite manga, which they privately discuss at school.
Sasaki develops a crush on Miyano, who harbors an embarrassing secret of being a fudanashi, i.e., a boy who is interested in other boys.
Sasaki struggles to combat his feelings for Miyano since the latter is cautious about discussing BL publicly.
As they spend time together, their feelings and relationship get complicated. Can the two love boys develop their relationship from friendship to love is the central plot of the show.
Sasaki To Miyano Season One was a massive success; however, since its completion, fans have been wondering if there will be a second installment or not.

|Sasaki To Miyano Season 1||10th January 2022|
|Sasaki To Miyano Season 2||Yet to be Announced|
Production studios consider various financial and commercial metrics before announcing a renewal.
Financially, the final volume of Sasaki to Miyano Blu -ray sold 1,170 copies and 717 for DVD.
Total of 1,887 copies were sold in its first three days, and it was ranked #6 in Japan’s Top 10 Weekly Anime Blu-ray and DVD Ranking for 20th June 2022 to 26th June 2022.
Certainly, its best performance to date, considering its Blu-rays have so far failed to hit the Top 20 charts for the general category for its past three volumes.
Meanwhile, Sasaki To Miyano manga Volume 5 sold 5094 copies and was ranked #2 on Top Weekly Manga Sold in the US from 24th April to 30th April 2022.
As mentioned earlier, Sasaki To Miyano Season one was received with positive reviews and ratings.
While Yaoi animes are a rarity these days, Sasaki To Miyano entertained the fans, which is further evidenced by its IMDB user episode ratings.
|Sasaki To Miyano Episode 1||7.8|
|Sasaki To Miyano Episode 2||7.8|
|Sasaki To Miyano Episode 3||8.0|
|Sasaki To Miyano Episode 4||8.2|
|Sasaki To Miyano Episode 5||8.1|
|Sasaki To Miyano Episode 6||8.0|
|Sasaki To Miyano Episode 7||7.8|
|Sasaki To Miyano Episode 8||8.1|
|Sasaki To Miyano Episode 9||7.9|
|Sasaki To Miyano Episode 10||7.6|
|Sasaki To Miyano Episode 11||7.3|
|Sasaki To Miyano Episode 12||7.9|
While the reviews, ratings, and profits are favorable, a crucial factor for renewal will be the availability of studio and source material.
Currently, studio Deen has one project (Power of Hope) scheduled for 2023 and is yet to announce any future series.
However, when it comes to producing sequels, the studio has only greenlit two series (Sorcerous Stabber Orphen and The Seven Deadly Sins) in the last few years.
Hence, it will come down to the studio s’ discretion on whether to go forward with Sasaki To Miyano Season 2 or not.
The studio has already produced an OVA and movie which covered till Chapter 40 of the manga, i.e., the Graduation Arc.
So, 40 out of the 46 chapters have been used, leaving behind only six chapters which obviously will not be enough.
Hence, due to a lack of source material, it’s safe to assume Sasaki To Miyano Season 2 won’t be happening.
Thus, expecting updates on Sasaki To Miyano Season 2 trailer and Sasaki To Miyano Season 2 release date would be a pointless wait.
