Will there ever be Shomin Sample Season 2? What are the chances of receiving a sequel?
Shomin Sample is one of the many series that belongs to the harem, comedy, and ecchi genres. Despite having a mainstream genre, Shomin Sample is one of those rare ecchi harems that actually feel genuinely original and refreshing to watch. Not just because the setting is somewhat unique, but also because the ecchi elements that the anime possesses feel natural and funny, unlike any other title on the same lines.
Shomin Sample began life as a Japanese light novel series entitled Ore ga Ojousama Gakkou ni “Shomin Sample” Toshite Rachirareta Ken, written by Takafumi Nanatsuki with illustrations by Gekka Uruu. It has been published by Ichijinsha since December 2011 and came to an end on July 2016 with a total of twelve volumes that were released through their Ichijinsha Bunko imprint.
The light novel series Shomin Sample was later adapted into a manga series illustrated by Risumai. The manga series was published in the manga magazine Comic Rex on May 27, 2017. Ichijinsha has successfully released fifteen bound volumes before the manga meets its end on September 27, 2018. Luckily, fans outside Japan can enjoy the manga series as it has been licensed in English by Seven Seas Entertainment on September 4, 2015.
Shomin Sample Season 2 Renewal Status
An anime adaptation of the light novel series Shomin Sample was later announced. It was produced by SILVER LINK, the studio that has released many popular shows such as Chivalry of a Failed Knight, Kokoro Connect, Masamune-Kun’s Revenge, and last but not least, Death March to the Parallel World Rhapsody.
The anime series Shomin Sample premiered on October 7, 2015, and ran for twelve episodes before concluding on December 23 of the same year. Despite having a score of 6.70 in MyAnimeList, Shomin Sample has won the hearts of many audiences. And as the first season left with a cliffhanger, many fans are craving to see its continuation. So, what is the renewal status of Shomin Sample Season 2? Has the production team said anything regarding a sequel?
As of now, we haven’t received any information from the studio or anyone from the production team regarding the whereabouts of Shomin Sample Season 2. Whether we will get a season renewal or not remains a mystery up to this point.
Will Shomin Sample Season 2 be possible?
In terms of source material, the studio would have more than enough of them to produce Shomin Sample Season 2. The light novel series currently has twelve volumes, and since most anime will only adapt two volumes for a season, the studio can easily make two or more sequels out of the available materials.
However, keep in mind that the light novel series of Shomin Sample has already come to an end, meaning that a new sequel would be unnecessary because simply there is nothing left to promote. However, in some cases, there is still a possibility that an anime will receive a new sequel even though the source has been finished like The Devil is a Part-Timer for example.
At the end of the day, fans should not have high hopes for Shomin Sample Season 2. However, there might still be a chance that the Shomin Sample will return someday, and once it does, we will surely update or make a new article about it. So, stay tuned!
Shomin Sample Action
Kimito Kagurazaka is a commoner with a fetish for men’s muscles—or at least that’s the lie he must keep telling if he wants to keep himself out of trouble at the elite all-girls school, Seikain Academy. Kidnapped by the school under the assumption that he prefers men, Kimito is made to be their “commoner sample,” exposing the girls to both commoners and men so that the transition to the world after school is not jarring. Threatened with castration should his sexual preferences not match the school’s assumptions, Kimito keeps up the facade to protect his manhood.
But there are eccentric individuals around every corner who begin to make Kimito’s life even more difficult. Among them are Aika Tenkuubashi, a social outcast who blurts out whatever comes to mind; Hakua Shiodome, a young genius; Karen Jinryou, the daughter of samurai who is obsessed with defeating Kimito; and Reiko Arisugawa, the perfect student who has delusions of marrying Kimito. Along with the commoner himself, these four girls make up the Commoner Club, which attempts to teach the girls more about life outside the school, while Kimito gradually learns about the odd girls surrounding him.
