Fans of the ‘Ao Haru Ride’ anime adaptation series are still waiting for the next part of Kou and Futaba’s story. This has been going on for more than five years.”Ao Haru Ride” is based on a Japanese shojo manga series written and drawn by Io Sakisaka.
The series is also known as “Blue Spring Ride.” Production I.G. made the anime version, which came out in 2014. Let’s find out if the anime show is still making more episodes. So far, this is what we know.
Will There Be a Second Season of “Ao Haru Ride”?
Production I.G. hasn’t renewed the critically acclaimed shoujo anime for a second season, even though fans want it. Even though there hasn’t been any news about season 2 renewal in a long time, some fans still choose to hold on to that glimmer of hope.

The renewal might have been put off because there wasn’t enough source material to promote. Anime shows are used to promote and sell the manga or light novel series they are based on. It’s easy to figure out.
More manga gets sold when an anime series is popular. Even though there are still a lot of chapters to cover in season 2, the manga and novel on which the show is based ended their serialisation in 2015.
So maybe there’s no reason to bring the series back now. Fans have been asking for the show to come back since the first season ended on a bit of a cliffhanger. Sadly, Production I.G. hasn’t answered their call yet.
Ao Haru Ride’ Season 2 Plot: What Is It All About?
The story of Futaba Yoshioka and Kou Mabuchi is told in “Ao Haru Ride.”Both went to the same high school, where they met and fell in love. But they both had personal problems that made it hard for them to be happy and stay together.
If the anime show is picked up for a second season, there is still a lot to talk about. Between 2011 and 2015, there were thirteen volumes of the manga series “Ao Haru Ride.”
The 13-episode anime-only showed what happened in the first four manga books (till Chapter 14). Since season 1 ended on a cliffhanger, season 2 is likely to adopt the rest of the books (again, assuming it gets renewed).
Voice Cast in Ao Haru Ride Season 2
Well, it’s likely that the main characters from season one will play the same roles again. In the second version of Ao Haru Ride, we might see the following characters:
- Futaba Yoshioka, voiced by Maaya Uchida
- Kou Mabuchi, voiced by: Yūki Kaji
- Yuri Makita, voiced by: Ai Kayano
- Shuko Murao voiced by: Mikako Komatsu
- KENN gave voice to Aya Kominato.
- Yōichi Tanaka Daisuke Hirakawa did the voice work.
- Tōma Kikuchi voiced by: Yoshitsugu Matsuoka
Also, it’s possible that we’ll see more faces in season 2. We’ll let you know here as soon as we know for sure. Keep watching!
When Will Season 2 of “Ao Haru Ride” Come Out?
We don’t know when season 2 of the anime show will come out because season 2 hasn’t been renewed yet. Even though it’s been seven long years since the first episode of the anime series, Production I.G. doesn’t seem to want to pick it up.
The anime show came out in July 2014, and it still hasn’t been renewed, which makes us think it might not come back. There is still hope, though.
In the past, we’ve seen older anime shows that were picked up by another studio get a new season. If enough fans sign petitions and show support, other studios might be interested in making a second season of “Ao Haru Ride.”
