Fans of A-1’s software-centric harem series are in luck! The official Saekano website announced that a sequel series was greenlit for production.
At this point, no further details are known about the project’s format or release date.
Saekano is based on Fumiaki Maruto’s light novels of the same name. The series revolves around otaku Tomoya Aki, whose dream is the produce the greatest visual novel of all time.
There’s only one catch.
Aki’s ideal heroine and inspiration for the dream is his attractive, yet generally plain classmate Megumi. To finish the game, Aki needs to call upon his anime-loving friends in the professional world, none of whom are very keen on his choice of a main heroine.
The series was produced by A-1 Pictures, and directed by Kanta Kamei (Bunny Drop, Nanana’s Buried Treasure). Character designs and animation direction were handled by Tomoaki Takase, while original creator Fumiaki Maruto provided the screenplay.
