The company celebrated the anime’s first anniversary on January 9 2021 and announced that the second season will be released in 2022.
The directors of the series are Shin Oonuma and Mirai Minato, while Kazuya Hirata is the chief animation director.
Fumihiko Shimo is providing the series composition.
However, the ending and opening songs of the new season are undeclared.
The opening of the first season is Kyukyoku Unbalance by Afilia Saga.
The ending song is Play The World by Riko Sasaki.
Maple and Sally also appear in the popular spin-off Isekai Quartet. The series also features Seiya and Ristarte from Cautious Hero.
Silver Links is producing Non Non Biyori Season 3 and the date for BOFURI’s news season remains unclear.
Due to its main characters being shield users, Rising of the Shield Hero and Bofuri, fans are expecting crossovers in games or events. Fans also jokingly refer to BOFURI as Shield Hero Online and Shield Heroine.
However, there is a deviation from the light novel. The anime has skipped many vital parts of the light novel. It does not affect the plot in any way, however.
