Looking at all the possibilities, we can say that the chances are extremely high for 'Welcome to the Ballroom' to land another season.
Animes have copious genres that give fans options to pick their favorites. Some like dark fantasy, some rom-com, and drama, some thriller, some humor and funny, some erotic and sensual, and some sports animes. The list goes on and it is undeniable that some of the anime series is just too good to miss out. One such anime series is 'Welcome to the Ballroom', which is a sports anime that became a hit right when it hit the screens. The first season amassed huge positive response and now everyone is waiting to hear about it getting a renewal. Fans are clustered with so many questions in their mind, with one of them being supremely important, which is whether or not the creators of the anime series want to make season 2 or not. Let's look at all the possibilities we could find to know what to expect and what not to.
Sports animes are one of the genres that perform the best in Japan. There are some amazing sports animes like Kuroko's Basketball, Yuri on Ice, Haikyu!! and many more that made their way into fans heart forever. Also, we will have to consider the fact that 'Welcome to the Ballroom' is a show that gets featured on a prominent broadcast network like Amazon. Fans would know that the series is available for those who have access to Amazon Prime Video and that too not only in the United States but also in Japan. Having said that, it is not possible for such a huge broadcaster to air something if it does not see potential and a successful future in it. Amazon must have figured out that the commercial success of this franchise is going to be high, therefore, the management decided to acquire exclusive rights for the series worldwide.
Another possibility could be the positive responses the first season garnered from the audience the franchise targetted. Looking at the figures presented by MyAnimeList, Ballroom e Youkoso gained a score of 8.12/10 ~ 15,300 votes. The series also scored 4.3 out of 5 stars, which is pretty decent to convince the creators to prepare for the second season. The third and another important factor to keep in mind is the fact that the original manga has nine volumes that contain 41 chapters. Volume 10 and 11 recently came in 2018, and it looks like this franchise is a long time work and project for the creators and team. Therefore, if we conclude our argument here, we can say that the chances are extremely high for 'Welcome to the Ballroom' to get another season.
The first season of Welcome to the Ballroom came out in July 2017 on MBS. Eventually, Tokyo MX, BS11, and Gunma TV showed this anime in Japan, and for global fans, it is always available on the broadcaster giant, Amazon Prime Video. The anime series is produced by Production I.G and the first season has 24 episodes to entertain its fans. Keeping this in mind, we know that there are enough source and material for a brand new season to happen, we can hope to see the second installment sometime in 2020, or early 2021. If at all any official news is led out, we shall update this space ASAP.
'Welcome to the Ballroom' or Ballroom e Youkoso in Japanese is a story revolving around Tatara Fujita who is a student.
