Juliet of Boarding School, Kishuku Gakkō no Jurietto in Japanese, is a romantic anime TV series. It has been derived from a manga series sharing the same name. The manga series, written and illustrated by Yosuke Kanada, was published in Bessa Shonen Magazine on July 9, 2015, and then moved to Weekly Shonen Magazine in 2017. The success of the manga series has published 14 volumes of books so far, prompting Kodansha Publishing House to publish a light novel based on it in 2017.
A year later, an announcement was made by the famous Japanese animation studio Liden Films that they had plans to adapt it into an animated TV series, and then the first season of “Juliet of Boarding School” premiered on October 6. In 2018, the anime adaptation was widely acclaimed for being loyal to the manga series. Since the end of the first season, fans have been eagerly looking forward to the news of the second season. Here’s what we know so far about the prospects for Season 2.
When will season 2 premiere?
Season 1, composed of 12 episodes, was provided in preview on October 6, 2018, and ran until December 22nd of the same year. Season 1’s popularity surpassed the anime shows published in autumn 2018, which included shows such as Zombie Land Saga, Rascal does not dream of Bunny Girl Senpai and Goblin Slayer. However, despite the popularity of the program, a second season has not yet been announced.
That said, there is no reason for the anime series to not return again. Taking into account the fact that the Manga series has fourteen volumes of content, there is a lot of source material for a second season. However, what could affect the possibilities of a second season are finances: while the anime turned out to be rather popular, it did not bring in much through Bluray and DVD Sales.
However, in the transmission era, transmission revenues are an important factor, and the success of the anime at the front of the transmission could compensate for the deficit in revenue. All the factors considered, it is difficult to predict if the show will get a season, but if we were to guess, we would say that it has a rather decent possibility. We have our ears open to news on the release date of the Juliet school season. And we will keep you updated as soon as we get our hands on something reliable.
English dub release
For those who prefer watching anime in English dub, the bad news is that Juliet Boarding School has not yet received an official dubbing, even while being quite popular amongst the Western public. However, this does not exclude the possibility of an English dub in the future, especially if the program continues well in the West. For now, if you want to see the program, you must see the original Japanese version. You can find the same with British subtitles on Amazon Prime Video.
The plot of the anime
As the name suggests, Juliet is a love story at boarding school that takes place in difficult times. The location of the series was a famous boarding school of the Dahlia Academy, in which students from two different countries participated – the “black dog” of the east and the “white cat” belonging to the western principality.
And bound by this hierarchy a love blossoms between two students of different factions – Romio Inuzuka and Juliet Persia. Romio is the dormitory manager in Donghe for the first year and Juliet is the dormitory manager in the Principality.
On the one hand, Romeo and Juliet have to pretend they are enemies. On the other hand, they showed hopeless love for one another. However, it turns out that their love is almost impossible because if they express their feelings for each other in public, they risk losing the loyalty of their comrades. Therefore, the show is a show about taboo love and its consequences.
