One lucky guy gets surrounded by a group of one-dimensional female characters, and out of all the problems that he has in the world, getting excessive female attention becomes his biggest dilemma. If this does not sound familiar to you, then you probably haven’t seen enough harem anime shows.
Now, I’m not trying to degrade the genre in any way. As repetitive as this setting might seem, there are times when you just want to lay back and watch something mindless and funny. That’s where harem anime shows come in. However, every once in a while, a harem anime comes along and changes everyone’s perception about it. ‘Oresuki’ is certainly one of those “game-changing” shows.
The anime centers a high school boy named Amatsuyu “Jouro” Kisaragi who, almost like all the other boys of his age, dreams of having a girlfriend. Unfortunately for him, the two girls that he really admires seem to have a crush on his best friend. He promises them that he’ll help them get his friend’s attention. While everyone gets deceived by his obtuse image, he secretly creates a plan wherein he tries to make one of the two girls fall in love with his best friend and then decides to keep the other one for himself as a reward. But that’s when things get even more complicated.
Sumireko “Pansy” Sanshokuin, who knows about his cheery facade, confesses her love for him. As I said, this is no ordinary harem and is full of the most unexpected plot twists and turns. So even if you’re not a fan of harem rom-coms, you should certainly give it a shot.
That being said, if you enjoyed watching the first season of ‘Ore wo Suki nano wa Omae dake ka yo’, you’re probably wondering if it is being considered for a sequel or not. To know more about its second season, move on to the next section.
Oresuki Season 2 Release Date: When will it premiere?
Oresuki Season 1 released on October 3, 2019 and aired for 12 episodes before coming to an end in December, 2019.
Produced by Connect Studio, which is also known for creating a few other well-known anime like ‘Strike the Blood‘, ‘Oresuki’ has been adapted from a light novel series written by Rakuda and illustrated by Buriki. The first season, which premiered on October 3, 2019, has been directed by Noriaki Akitaya and its music has mostly been done by Yoshiaki Fujisawa.
When it comes to the second season of the series, its release will mostly depend on how well it is able to perform commercially with its first installment. From the looks of it, if we compare it to other anime of the same genre, ‘Oresuki‘ has been able to perform really well. In the name of “harem“, most anime studios produce trash content that offers nothing more than typical archetypes of the genre.
However, ‘Oresuki’, despite being a harem, has been able to stand out from the crowd. So at this point, considering how well is being received by most viewers, there is a possibility that the anime might return with a sequel in the future. As of now, no confirmations have been made by Connect Studio, but as soon as we get any updates regarding its release, we will update it here in this section. If the creators of the show are already considering it for a sequel, you can expect Oresuki Season 2 to release sometime in 2021. Till then you can check out the shows on our list of other similar rom-com anime.
