'Oresuki' has already released 12 episodes and an OVA, but we still want to know what happens next in Joro's complicated romantic life. Is the anime coming back for more?
'Oresuki' may seem like your regular harem with cliché characters and repetitive stories at first look, but the series offers much more than that.
The anime series follows an average high-school student who gets invited to two dates by two beautiful girls, only for them to confess that they are in love with his best friend and ask for his help.
'Oresuki' (short for Ore wo Suki Nano wa Omae Dake ka yo aka Are You Really the Only One Who Likes Me?) is based on a Japanese light novel series written by Rakuda and illustrated by Buriki.
The anime adaptation by Connect aired from October to December 2019. An OVA was released in September 2020.
Although it has been a little over a year since the series released, fans are already wondering if the anime will have more seasons in the future. Let's find out.
Renewal Status: Pending
We are still waiting for renewal announcements for the second season of 'Oresuki'. The first season was produced by Connect Studios, but the company remains tight-lipped about its renewal so far. The studio didn't cancel the show either, so we can still cling to our hopes of seeing season 2.
The first season got a generally good reception from viewers. 'Oresuki' scored 7.381/ 10 from 157,119 on MyAnimeList.
The anime is not renewed for season 2 yet, so we still can't give you a release date. Don't worry because we will continue to check out for the latest updates for you.
Yes, there is! There's plenty of source material that can cover 'Oresuki' season 2. The inaugural season of 'Oresuki' consists of only 12 episodes. There are already 14 volumes of the LN series published so far, with the latest volume released on June 10, 2020. Aside from that, the authors are also publishing a manga series and already released six volumes.
Having enough source material means more chances of an anime getting more seasons.
'Oresuki' follows Amatsuyu "Joro" Kisaragi, an ordinary student who gets asked out alone by two beautiful girls: the upperclassman Sakura "Cosmos" Akino and his childhood friend Aoi "Himawari" Hinata.
Think it's a happy start? Unfortunately, no. Both girls confessed that they liked his best friend, Taiyо̄ "Sun-chan" Ōga, not him. They both asked for Joro's help to get Sun-chan's attention. Things even get more complicated when Sumireko "Pansy" Sanshokuin, a nerdy girl in braids and glasses confessed to Joro that she is in love with him. Hence, the title: "Are You Really the Only One Who Likes Me?"
The follow-up season will continue to chronicle the complicated romances between these characters. Sakura and Aoi had a change of heart and started developing feelings for Joro after finding out Sun-chan's true personality. Amidst the confusion, we are expecting Joro to finally sort out his true feelings for the girls once and for all.
Amatsuyu "Joro" Kisaragi
Amatsuyu "Joro" Kisaragi is a second-year student at Nishikizuta High School. He is best friends with Sun-chan, their local baseball team heartthrob.
Sumireko "Pansy" Sanshokui
Sumireko "Pansy" Sanshokui is a student and library helper who is in love with Joro. She wears thick glasses and unstylish braids but is actually very beautiful. She hides a gorgeous face and an hour-glass body beneath the nerdy ensemble.
Aoi "Himawari" Hinata
Aoi "Himawari" Hinata is Joro's childhood friend who also goes to the same school. She is in love with Sun-chan and asks for Joro's help.
Sakura "Cosmos" Akino
Sakura "Cosmos" Akino is a third-year student and the Student Council President at Nishikizuta High School. She likes to keep things organized and she freaks out when things don't go according to plan.
Taiyо̄ "Sun-chan" Ōga
Taiyо̄ "Sun-chan" Ōga is Joro's best friend since middle school. He is the ace of the Baseball Club and is famous for his friendly and caring demeanor. However, he hides a prideful and spiteful personality. He secretly wants to destroy Joro. He has feelings for Pansy, who is in love with his best friend Joro.
It's going to be an indefinite wait. The anime series is not renewed yet, but we'll keep an eye on future announcements.
