Ahiru No Sora Season 2 Release Date
As we all know, Ahiru No Sora had recently completed airing its first season. Without a doubt, the series was a massive hit amongst fans as there are very few anime in the sports genre that adequately satisfy fans. Ahiru No Sora Season 2 hasn’t been announced officially nor has the production stated the possibility of it happening.
But taking into consideration how the amazingly good Ahiru No Sora performed, it is very much possible for Ahiru No Sora Season 2 to come out soon. When we look into the performance of past animes where the performance and fan service was good, the animes tends to renew for another season.
This takes place either in 1 year like Rising of the Shield Hero Season 2 and Season 3 or after a few years like Attack on titan, Gintama, One Punch Man, etc. Ahiru No Sora Season 2 has a very possibility of taking place in 2021 as the fans have gone into the craze for sports anime. Again this is due to Ahiru No Sora and Haikyuu, especially Haikyuu due to its wonderfully explained plot and sharp illustrations.

Ahiru No Sora Season 2 Latest Updates
There are plenty of so-called “Updates” going around about Ahiru No Sora Season 2. But no official statement has been released by the creator or Diomedéa which produced the first season. Ahiru No Sora Season 2 has a lot of unofficial statements and arguments which make it very difficult to filter genuine updates. But after a long search, we came to the conclusion that the Ahiru No Sora Season 2 did not have an official update in the past month.
Possible Reasons for no official statements on Ahiru No Sora Season 2
Due to the on-going pandemic, it isn’t feasible for the Japanese anime creators to function at their best. As a result, no such information is being revealed or leaked. Even the most awaited animes have undergone postponement due to Covid-19, but they haven’t gotten canceled. We can expect the same for Ahiru No Sora Season 2, the cast will definitely be back for season 2. The only question is when? and for the answer, we must wait a little longer.

Hindrances that may affect Ahiru No Sora Season 2
Hinata, the creator of Ahiru No Sora has commented numerous times on the deviation of the Anime adaptation from the manga. According to Hinata, our beloved anime which we all admire so much was supposed to be even better. This truly shows the amount of dedication and love Hinata has for his creation.
Rather than fearing the production or the serialization committee, Hinata has always voiced his opinions on the anime and has made it clear that the anime adaptation wasn’t going as expected. One such incident had taken place when a young boy had requested to play the voice actor for a particular character. Hinata was helpless as his request was also turned down. He later took to Twitter and commented –
“I WAS REMINDED THAT ‘FEELINGS’ ARE OF NO VALUE IN THIS INDUSTRY. NO, I KNEW IT, BUT I WAS STUPID BECAUSE I EXPECTED EVEN A LITTLE.”
– Takeshi Hinata (November 2019)
In recent events, Takeshi had commented on his opinion towards Ahiru No Sora. He criticized the anime adaptation and was really unhappy. Although the tweet was immediately taken down, new reports were found with screenshots taken by fans.

Fans fear that this incident may shatter their dreams of watching Ahiru No Sora Season 2. But the Manga series hasn’t ended yet, fans still have their source of Basketball manga for backup. The possibility of the anime being diluted hasn’t been taken seriously yet because Hinata has remained silent for quite some time now. But needless to say, if Ahiru No Sora Season 2 gets canceled due to this dispute then it really wasn’t waiting for.
Ahiru No Sora Manga
The Ahiru No Sora Manga series started in late 2003. Takeshi Hinata had started his to-be famous series which conquered many hurdles. The manga is still going after 17 years. It has a total of 51 volumes so far and the plot still gets interesting with every new chapter.
Furthermore, Ahiru no Sora manga’s pace is slowly coming into view. Besides this, In January 2019, Takeshi Hinata announced via his official Twitter account that the manga had entered its final arc.
On the other hand, In spring 2019, the author went on hiatus after releasing Ahiru no Sora Chapter 616. It was initially planned to be a “short hiatus,” but over a year later, Hinata hasn’t announced when he will release Ahiru no Sora Chapter 617.
Unfortunately, no English publisher has announced an official English translation. There are English Ahiru no Sora manga fan translations, but those unofficial projects had only translated up to Volume 20 as of July 2020.
According to most fans, the manga is said to be a better medium in terms of portraying the story. The anime left off at Chapter 139 volume 18, as you can see the anime has covered less than half the manga. This gives rise to the probability of Ahiru No Sora Season 2 becoming a reality.
Where to Watch Ahiru no sora Season 2?
Hypothetically speaking the second season will most likely air on the same websites as its prequel. Currently, you can watch ‘Ahiru no Sora’ officially on Crunchyroll and HiDive with its original Japanese audio and English subtitles. We highly condemn the use of streaming anime or reading manga on an unofficial website.
What Makes Ahiru No Sora so Special?
Ahiru No Sora is just like Haikyuu on many terms. The main character is very much alike. Both the characters face many odds to get to the top. The biggest factor both face is their own height. Although they both don’t lack the skills and motivation to become a star player. They have immense trust in their teammates and have fun during practice matches. Yes, they do face hurdles among the team but they strive through it typically like every main character of an anime.
Both animes have adequate character development with mostly centering the main protagonist. The animations and background music is what brings the scenes to life in these animes. But one thing that disturbs most fans is Sora’s actual height. Sora is said to be 150 cm making him extremely short for a basketball player. In real life, it would be impossible to faceoff against highschool athletes. Let us see if Ahiru No Sora Season 2 can prove to be the better anime between the two.
