World Dai Star Season 2, Renewal Status explored!
The onset of singing sensations and groups competing against each other has given the idol genre a massive boost in its prominence.
Be it singing, dancing, or theatrical performances, major players in the idol industry go toe to toe to earn the right to have the brightest spotlight.
Each year few series are released featuring this trope and Spring 2023 was no different as World Dai Star by studio Lerche hit the small screen
The premise is set in the 20th century wherein the world has caught a major musical theatre bug.
The top performers are known as Dai Stars who have exceptional skills in acting and singing. Amongst the Dai Stars, the best performer is given the title of World Dai Star.
The story follows a rookie Kokona Ootri who aspires to become a World Dai Star but has been unsuccessful in all her auditions.
After numerous failures, she finally gets an opportunity to audition for a famous theatre group called Sirius.
Inspired by her friend Shizukua, she makes it in the group and starts her journey alongside established members and some fresh faces hoping to make it big.
Specialized abilities known as ‘Sense’ have manifested in the new generation of actors, and their use gives performers the edge over each other in defining their roles.
Kokona will have to understand her unique Sense and how she can use it to fulfill her dream of becoming a World Dai Star.
World Dai Star Season One was a relative success and after its conclusion, fans who enjoyed the first season are wondering if there will be a second installment or not.

WHAT IS THE WORLD DAI STAR SEASON 2 RELEASE DATE?
World Dai Star Season One aired from 9th April 2023 to 25th June 2023 for 12 episodes.
As of writing, there is no update from studio Lerche on the renewal of World Dai Star Season 2.
|World Dai Star Season 1||9th April 2023|
|World Dai Star Season 2||Yet to be Announced|
Production Studios consider various financial and commercial metrics before announcing a renewal.
As mentioned earlier, World Dai Star Season One was an above-average series and failed to break into the top-rated anime list of Spring 2023.
World Dai Star albeit having an interesting premise and a unique take on the CGDCT trope, could not stand out in a season where Oshi no Ko became a worldwide success.
Anime News Network gave the anime an overall C grade with criticism for being over-reliant on gimmicks to the detriment of any insight into its subject matter while the musical numbers are haphazardly integrated.
Despite the reviews and ratings, a crucial factor for renewal will be the availability of studio and source material.
Currently, studio Lerche has scheduled Classroom of the Elite Season 3 to release in January 2024.
However, the studio is not known to produce sequels with only Classroom of the Elite receiving multiple installments in recent times.
Furthermore, an anime similar to World Dai Star called Idoly Parade was released in 2021 by the studio, which was much more popular and is yet to receive a second season.
Also, the anime doesn’t have readymade source material with World Dai Star manga adaption beginning serialization on 2nd April 2023.
All in All, it could be a multiyear wait before the series is renewed and we get any updates on World Dai Star Season 2 trailer and World Dai Star Season 2 release date.
WORLD DAI STAR SEASON 2 PLOT
In the final episode of “The Two of Us Together”, opening day has finally come but Kokona seems a little down about Shizuka, although Kathrina encouraged her.
They are confident that they can bring her back from the production. Of course, Kathrina’s mother sat next to the theatre critic, Chisa who recognized her instantly.
Of course, Noa waits in anticipation seeing Kokona’s performance. Despite Shizuka disappearing, Noa didn’t change the roles as she wanted to see how Kokona fares, even if she loses her senses.
It seems a bit selfish on Noa’s part, but Shamo believes senses evolve and represent actors’ dreams. She believes that Kokona’s senses will stay but get stronger.
Kokona performed even better than her peers expected during rehearsal. We see Panda at her best and especially Kokona and Yae as they showed their acting using their senses in their roles as the Phantom and Christine, respectively.
Kokona comes to meet Shizuka to remind her of her promise. It’s obvious Kokona isn’t going to become a World Dai Star without Shizuka becoming one too.
After the performance, Kokona comes backstage, and Shizuka appeared out of nowhere, wearing the same costume as Kokona.
As Shamo said, Senses will continue to evolve, and actors will shine bright. Someday, Kokona’s and Shizuka’s senses can eventually evolve to the same level as Kokona’s and Shizuka’s senses combined.
Also, it is interesting that Chisa might have gained a sense of her own. In the end, nobody expected Yae to become the World Dai Star for Sirius.
One would think Kokona would become one, given that she surpassed Yae. However, she only does it when her and Shizuka’s senses are combined. So it’s easy to see why Noa picked Yae all along.
It is a sign that Yae overcame the weaknesses that prevented her from becoming one.
Still, it’s pretty fitting to see Shizuka and Kokona lying on stage as Noa decides their next play for Sirius to perform.
World Dai Star Season 2 will most likely cover Kokono s’ journey as she continues to work hard to achieve her dream. Also, will new groups emerge to challenge Sirius on the grand stage?
