The Remake Our Life! Season 2 anime TV series will have Kyouya Hashiba leaping back in time once again to restore the future of his friends. But when will Bokutachi no Remake Season 2 come out?
The first season of the anime TV series was produced by animation Studio feel, which in recent times is best known for Dagashi Kashi Season 1, Hinamatsuri, Dropout Idol Fruit Tart, and Oregairu 3: My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU Climax!
In 2021, Studio feel is also releasing the isekai anime The Evolution Fruit: Conquering Life Unknowingly, which is based on a light novel series where God transported an entire school to a fantasy world.
The Remake Our Life! anime project was helmed by director Tomoki Kobayashi, who is known for directing Akame ga Kill! and Infinite Dendrogram in the past.
Writer Nachi Kio is not only the original creator, he wrote the series composition for the anime series. This was not his first anime project since he’s been the anime writer for Circlet Princess, The Fruit of Grisaia, and Aokana: Four Rhythm Across the Blue.
Artist Kousuke Kawamura (Frame Arms Girl, Island) was the character designer. Elements Garden (Our Last Crusade or the Rise of a New World, That Time I Got Reincarnated As A Slime), or Seima Kondo and Yusuke Takeda, provided the music.
The Remake Our Life! Season 2 OP (opening) and ED (ending) theme song music hasn’t been announced yet.
For the first season, the Remake Our Life! OP “Starting From Now, It Won’t Become a Song” was performed by Poppin Party, while the ED “Possibility” was performed by Argonavis.
The first season of Remake Our Life! anime was streaming with English subtitles on Crunchyroll and VRV (not Netflix U.S., FUNimation, or Hulu). The first episode was released as a one-hour special (46-minute runtime).
Crunchyroll’s Remake Our Life! English dub release date hasn’t been announced yet.
Remake Our Life! Episode 6.5 was a recap episode that was released on August 14, 2021.
The first season’s finale, Remake Our Life! Episode 12, was released on September 25, 2021. The first season was released in two Blu-Ray/DVD volumes, with Volume 1 released on December 22, 2021.
This article provides everything that is known about Remake Our Life! Season 2 (Bokurema Season 2/Bokutachi no Remake Season 2) and all related news. As such, this article will be updated over time with news, rumors, and analysis. Meanwhile, let’s delve down into what is known for certain.
As of the last update, Studio feel, or any company related to the production of the anime has not officially confirmed the Remake Our Life! Season 2 release date. Nor has the production of a Bokurema Season 2 sequel been announced.
Once the news is officially confirmed this article will be updated with the relevant information.
In the meantime, it’s possible to speculate about when, or if, the Bokutachi no Remake Season 2 release date will occur in the future.
The Remake Our Life! reviews have been mostly positive with scores hovering slightly above average for this type of story. On the negative side, during the Summer 2021 season, the anime seemed to be fairly low on Crunchyroll’s popular anime list, rarely making it into the top 20.
The official website and Twitter accounts gave no indication that a second season was in the works. Rather than discussing hopes for Season 2, the original author, Nachi Kio, tweeted that fans could continue the story by reading the light novels or manga. This type of exhortation is common regardless of whether an anime receives sequels or not, but so far there’s no hint that the anime will continue the story.
As of April 2022, it seems unlikely that the anime production committee will have Remake Our Life! renewed for a second season.
The story for the anime is based on the Remake Our Life! light novel series by Nachi Kio and illustrator Eretto. Published by MF Bunko J since March 2017, the books are up to Volume 9 as of July 21, 2021.
In 2019, the original author launched a spin-off series called Bokutachi no Remake β. The story forgoes the time leap premise completely and instead has Kyouya struggling together with Eiko Kawasegawa in the video game industry. The spin-off book series was up to Volume 3 as of April 2021.
The original creator also teamed up with manga artist Bonjin Hirameki in 2018 for creating the Remake Our Life! manga adaptation. Serialized in Kodansha’s Suiyobi no Sirius magazine since November 2018, the manga ended on April 4, 2022. The manga will presumably be collected into seven volumes in total (Volume 6 came out in October 2021).
Unfortunately, an official English translation for North America hasn’t been announced yet for the original light novel series, the spin-off books, or the manga.
Typically when an anime is adapting a light novel series the dialogue and plot points will be condensed so that 3 to 5 books can be wedged into a single cour composed of 12 episodes. The original author was involved in the production so the anime managed to streamline the story while retaining the heart of the light novels. It even managed to expand on characterization while still trimming back in certain areas!
While it’s notable that the first episode was an hour-long special, what really stood out to fans of the light novel series is how the anime’s opening greatly fleshed out Kyouya’s character by showing his hard work ethic before the time leap. While that seems like anime-original material, it’s actually based on the prologue for the spinoff since it showed what happened to Kyouya if he didn’t make the time leap.
Due to this change, when Kyouya runs into Eiko Kawasegawa in the past he starts calling her Chief in the anime. Thus, the character’s introduction and Kyouya’s treatment of her were changed to reflect these timeline differences.
Speaking of the way Kyouya treated women, the anime greatly downplayed the romance subplots by skipping a lot of dialogue. Considering that romance really doesn’t become relevant until later books it made sense for the anime to focus on other plot elements with its limited runtime.
All in all, the first season’s finale, Bokutachi no Remake Episode 12, found a stopping point corresponding to light novel Volume 4.
It was the best stopping point since that book (and manga Chapter 26) introduced the major plot twist that Kyouya managed to achieve a relatively happy future for himself at the expense of his friends, including his wife Shinoaki, who were no longer considered the Platinum Generation of creators. So then he tried again for a truly happy ending albeit in the future. Without this plot twist and resulting conflict, the anime’s ending would have lacked solid plot resolution.
At the same time, it was surprising that the anime finished with a cliffhanger ending. Abruptly stopping after Kyouya confronts Tsurayuki is such a tease since the second season wasn’t immediately announced… which could be interpreted as a “go read the light novels” ending.
The good news is that there is plenty of source material for making Remake Our Life! Season 2. Light novel readers who wish to read ahead of the anime can jump to Volume 5.
The bad news is that English-only fans who wish to read ahead of the anime series will need to wait until an international publisher licenses the series.
Also, manga readers will need to wait for more chapters to release before reading ahead. As of Remake Our Life! Chapter 30 the manga was only caught up with the first half of Episode 11.
Kyouya’s mission is to regain the original future of the three friends who became the Platinum Generation before he mucked with the timeline with his time leap. This time Kyouya is coming back from 11 years in the future to recreate their lives.
In order to increase Shinoaki’s motivation to create as an artist, Kyouya approaches Minori Ayaka (Saikawa), the artist who would become a genius later in life but is now just a junior in the art department.
Another problem is that Tsurayuki Rokuonji dropped out of the university. In order to rescue him from a bleak future, Kyoya and Nanako Kogure decided to head to Kawagoe, where Tsurayuki’s parents’ house is located.
There will also be a school festival and the art club decides to host a cosplay cafe. Then somehow Kawasegawa becomes involved?!
Plus, there’s the lingering mystery of the pink-haired loli Keiko Tomioka. Does she know about Kyouya’s time traveling?
In the midst of romantic comedy developments with the heroines, what kind of results will Kyouya’s determination and decisions bring for everyone around him?
Unfortunately, anime fans will have to wait until the Remake Our Life! Season 2 release date to watch what happens next. Stay tuned!
