Bunny Girl Senpai: A New Movie, Not Season 2

What’s Coming Next for Bunny Girl Senpai Fans?

Great news for fans of the anime series “Bunny Girl Senpai”! While you might be eagerly waiting for a second season, the creators have something else in store—a brand new movie. The series, known for its unique titling approach similar to the Bakemonogatari series, is introducing its second movie under the title “Rascal Does Not Dream Of A Sister Venturing Out.”

When Can You Catch the New Movie?

Hold your horses! Before you jump to conclusions about a second season, let’s set the record straight. There will be no “Bunny Girl Senpai: Season 2.” Instead, the second movie is set to premiere on June 23, 2023. Trailers confirming this date have already been released. And that’s not all; a third movie, “Rascal Does Not Dream Of A Knapsack Kid,” is also in the pipeline, although its release date remains under wraps.

What’s the New Movie About?

  • Based on Light Novels: The series is adapted from light novels, and the second movie will cover Volume 8, titled “A Sister Venturing Out.”
  • Focus on Supporting Characters: Unlike the first season, which centered on Mai and Sakuta’s budding relationship, the movies delve into the lives of supporting characters.
  • Kaede’s Story: The second movie will spotlight Sakuta’s younger sister, Kaede, as she musters the courage to rejoin society after suffering from Adolescence Syndrome.

Who’s Behind the Production?

For those curious about the production team, Aniplex and Kadokawa are confirmed co-producers for the second movie. CloverWorks continues to be the animation studio of choice. However, the involvement of other companies from the first season and movie is yet to be confirmed.

Where to Watch the Series

If you’re new to the series or want to revisit it, you can stream “Bunny Girl Senpai: Season 1” on platforms like Crunchyroll, Funimation, and Netflix. However, the first movie, “Rascal Does Not Dream Of A Dreaming Girl,” is a bit elusive and not available on any American streaming platforms. Your best option is to purchase a physical copy.

Accessibility of the New Movie

The first movie had a limited theatrical run in America, raising concerns about the accessibility of the upcoming second movie. Fingers crossed that it will be more widely available post its theatrical release.

So, while a second season may not be on the horizon, the upcoming movies promise to keep the intrigue and excitement alive for all “Bunny Girl Senpai” aficionados.
