The show’s popularity came as no surprise, and neither did the fans call for a HigeHiro Season 2. The show HigeHiro completely enamored the fans. It is also short for Higehiro: After Being Rejected, I Shaved and Took in a High School Runaway.
The more extended version of the title reveals what the show will revolve around. The show’s protagonist, Yoshida, is a worker in an IT office. He has had a thing for his boss Auri Gotou for the longest time. One day, he musters up the courage to voice his feelings for her and confess to her. However, to his dismay, things do not go as well as he had imagined. He finds himself utterly miserable as he drinks away the pain of the rejection he faced.
While Yoshida is drunk that night, he meets a high schooler in desperate need of shelter. After assessing that it is unsafe for her to stay out late at night, he lets her sleep. However, one thing leads to another. The next thing we know is that the two have started living together. As they live together, they also learn more about each other daily.
HigeHiro Season 2 Release Date
Sadly, no release date has yet been announced for the animated adaptation HigeHiro Season 2. However, the fans should not take this absence of an announcement as proof that there will be no further development or addition to the story.
Yes, the animated adaptation of the manga did come to an end. However, there is always the possibility of adding a sequel or a spin-off story to the world of Yoshida and Sayu. This possibility is even more likely when considering the success of manga and anime. The writer Shimesaba might continue this enchanting world and write more on the story of Sayu and Yoshida. They can expand and show how the two navigate their lives further.
HigeHiro Season 2 Plot
Unfortunately, most of the storyline from the manga series of the anime has been used up for the first season. This makes it difficult to speculate the plot of what the anime’s second season might bring to the fans and viewers. Moreover, if one looks at the storyline, there is not much for the franchise to expand. Furthermore, the stories from the manga have ended on quite a good and satisfying note. The ending seems sensible from the point of view of a storyteller.
However, there is a piece of good news for the show’s fans. Shimesaba has confirmed that she has recently started working on an epilogue story. This epilogue will focus on a timeline and plot where Yoshida meets Sayu in the future. The writer further plans to elaborate on Yoshida’s relationships with Mishima and Gotou. This is to show viewers a more extended aspect of their story.
This means that even though the story between Yoshida and Sayu has completed its path and reached its end, fans will still get to see what Yoshida’s life is like after their encounter and how he lives his life.
