As per the sources to date, The White Fox has not yet announced anything about this manga series. Apparently, it has not been renewed at the time of writing.
It is heartbreaking as the series has received recognition and gained popularity. Yet they are few concerns that we would like to mention:
The first season has already covered the first 4 volumes. And primarily only 2 volumes are left which is not sufficient enough to go with another season. Besides this, the monetary budget seems another big trouble for this series. Mostly, an anime is expected to exceed 4,000 sales in volume average before it can be approved for a new season whereas 2497 copies were sold in the first volume, and it continued with 2387 sales in the volume two sales.
That certainly can be an obstacle behind renewal. Though the anime gained popularity that’s in OOTD and other platforms, only 27 people on social media handle Twitter follow the anime’s official account. And in worldwide popularity score, it is above average that is 77.1 %.
Thus, in a way, there are a lot of troubles in the path of renewal that could certainly take few more years to come to a final decision. Well, that’s only a guess, the scenario might change depends on the production house and other factors.
