Fans have been waiting over half a decade to continue Kou and Futaba’s narrative in the ‘Ao Haru Ride’ anime adaptation series.
Also referred to as ‘Blue Spring Ride,’ ‘Ao Haru Ride’ is based on Io Sakisaka’s shjo manga series. Production I.G. created the anime adaptation, which was released in 2014.
Let’s find out whether the anime series has been renewed for a second season. Here is what we currently know.
Will There Be a Season 2 of ‘Ao Haru Ride’?
Production I.G. has yet to renew the highly praised shoujo anime for a second season despite widespread popularity.
Because the series has not been canceled, some fans are choosing to cling to that ray of optimism, although they have not heard anything regarding a season 2 renewal in a long time.
The renewal may have been delayed due to insufficient source material to advertise.
Anime series are used to promote and sell the manga or light novel series on which they are based. The formula is straightforward. Manga sales increase in direct proportion to the popularity of an anime series.
Although many chapters remain in season 2, the manga and novel on which the program is based have already concluded their publication in 2015. Thus, there may be no reason to revive the series.
Because the first season ended on a cliffhanger, fans have been clamoring for the program to return. Regrettably, Production I.G. has yet to respond to their call.

When Will the Second Season of ‘Ao Haru Ride’ Be Released?
Because the anime series is still awaiting season 2 renewal, we cannot provide an estimated release date.
It’s been seven years since the anime series launched, but Production I.G. appears uninterested in renewing it.
The anime series premiered in July 2014 and has yet to receive a renewal, leading us to suspect that it will not return.
However, there is hope! Previously, older anime programs were revived after being bought up by another studio.
Other studios may get interested in creating ‘Ao Haru Ride’ season 2 if there are enough petitions and support from fans.
What Is the ‘Ao Haru Ride’ Season 2 Plot About?
‘Ao Haru Ride’ chronicles the relationship between Futaba Yoshioka and Kou Mabuchi. The two attended the same high school and fell in love.
They both, however, have personal concerns that have harmed their happiness and relationship. There is sufficient material remaining to cover the anime series if it is revived for a second season.
Between 2011 and 2015, the manga series ‘Ao Haru Ride’ published thirteen volumes. The thirteen-episode anime adaptation focused exclusively on the first four manga volumes (till Chapter 14).
Given the cliffhanger nature of season 1, season 2 is expected to adopt the remaining volumes (again, assuming it gets renewed).
