The viewers were already aware of the episodes the makers skipped in the first season. Fans were expecting to see the same original story, but they weren’t happy with how things turned out after watching the series. Maybe that’s the reason why the makers are not eager to renew the UQ Holder anime.

Though there are no updates about UQ Holder Season 2, it hasn’t been officially cancelled yet. Therefore, there’s still hope for the second season of UQ Holder anime.

Therefore, it’s safe to say that the makers have more than one reason not to continue the UQ holder anime series.
