Possible Plot for Hanebado! Season 2
The Hanebado! manga series started on June 7 2013 and ended on October 7, 2019. The Manga consists of 16 volumes. The Anime adaptation has reached volume 7 in the manga, so the anime is yet to cover the remaining volumes. Hanebado! Season 2 may or may not go according to the manga. Here’s why.
The Manga has a very nice storyline and depicts all the sequences exactly as created by Kōsuke Hamada. The anime has made quite a few significant changes to scenes for better fan service. This really disappointed the manga readers when then they had high hopes for the Anime. This is clearly one of those animes where the manga was a better depiction of the story than the anime.
Hanebado! Season 2 Characters
Considering that the anime will have a sequel, the characters will be the same as the manga. Hanebado! Season 2 will have new exciting characters that will rival Ayano. If you haven’t read the manga, then we suggest you do it. We do not intend to spoil the character entrances which really give you goosebumps as they are introduced.
Let’s shine a light on the 2 main characters of the series who have made fans go crazy due to their character and image designs.
Ayano Hanesaki is the main protagonist of Hanebado!. She was abandoned by her mother who claims she left for work reasons. Ayano has known badminton her entire life but is left devastated when her mother leaves her. The most horrifying fact is that she left Ayano because she wasn’t good enough in terms of badminton talent.
Probably the most satisfying scene to watch is when Ayano is reminded of her past and goes berserk. She switches to rage mode with the most savage expressions that leave the viewers contemplating if she is actually a cute little girl. Her anger and rage are completely justified due to her evil mother. Such an interesting character surely does put a smile on the fan’s faces.
Nagisa Aragaki is a complete tomboy and the captain of the badminton club. Her looks and figure make you lie to your friends when you say you watch the anime only for the plot. Nagisa is extremely strong-minded and shows great interest in her training. She was initially defeated by Ayano. So she trains vigorously until she is fit to call herself an opponent.
Nagisa is an amazing supporting role in the anime and keeps Ayano in check. Although she is not as skilled as Ayano, but she proves to everyone that sheer determination and hard work can push anyone beyond their limits to achieve their goals.
Hanebado! revolves around Aayno, a phenomenal badminton player who wants to quit due to her mother leaving her due to not being good enough. Nagisa is the captain of the badminton club and was completely humiliated by Ayano during a badminton tournament.
The story is based on how one girl wants to leave badminton for good even though she is extremely good at it and misses it dearly. And the other girl who wants to prove to herself that she can defeat anyone with determination and a strong mindset. A completely different mix of personalities with beautifully drawn 2D illustrations is the way to describe this anime.
