Will There Be ‘Keijo!!!!!!!!’ Season 2?
“Keijo!!!!!!!!” also known as “Hip Whip Girl” is a television adaptation of a Japanese sports manga series that was launched on October 6, 2016 on Tokyo MX, and was subsequently broadcast on AT-X, BS11, as well as other Japanese television stations. The anime is created by the Xebec studio, directed by Hideya Takahashi and is based on the original script written by Takao Kato; music by Hayato Matsuo. The anime series was licensed by FUNimation in North America and is available for video streaming through their website as well as via Crunchyroll.
The sports anime has a pretty favorable reception of the target audience, and, therefore, we suppose that to the delight of millions fans, the Xebec studio will release a next season of the series. Currently, according to MyAnimeList, “Keijo!!!!!!!!” has a score of 7.23 out of 10 based on over 11,650 user votes. At the same time, the viewers of Crunchyroll have rated the sports series at 3.6 stars out of 5 based on 80 reviews and 90 user votes.
“Keijo!!!!!!!!” takes place in an alternative world where a gambling sport known as “Keijo” rapidly turns into a fad in Japan. This new sports game represents a competition between young sexy women who held atop floating platforms compete each other in large water-filled stadiums. Their goal is to push their foe in the water using their breasts or buttocks.
The storyline revolves around Nozomi Kaminashi, a talented gymnast, who is forced to forget her dream of competing in the Olympics in order to provide her family. She becomes a Keijo player, instead, in order to earn some money. Joining the Keijo world, Nozomi obtains new friends and rivals, as well as faces with new challenges.
Renewal Potential and Notification of the Release Date
Recently, such a genre as sports anime has become a trend in Japan. For instance, “haikyuu” is currently airing its third season. The Xebec studio has yet to announce the decision of renewal or cancellation of the sports series. But “Keijo!!!!!!!!” has been praised by numerous viewers, taking into account the statistics presented above. Therefore, we have every reason to believe that “Keijo!!!!!!!!” Season 2 would take place. However, we would like to wait for the official announcement by Xebec.
