Bottom-tier Character Tomozaki is a slice of life and rom-com anime. It’s based on the Light novel series written by Yūki Yaku and illustrated by Fly. The show’s first season started on January 8, 2021, and aired 12 episodes before concluding on March 26, 2021. Fans are eagerly waiting for news on season 2.

Project No.9 Studios animated the first season. Shinsuke Yanagi was the director, with Fumihiko Shimo handling the series composition, Akane Yano designed the characters, and Hiromi Mizutani composing the series’ music.

Will There Be A Bottom-tier Character Tomozaki Season 2?

To answer this question, we will look at a few factors that affect an anime’s renewability. The different factors we’ll be looking at are the source material, sales and popularity, Social Media, and Rankings.

The Source Material

Animes are mostly adapted based on some source material. This could be a manga, a light novel, a video game, and such. For Bottom-tier Character Tomozaki, it is a light novel. In this case, we look at the light novel’s popularity, how many volumes are available, and whether it is ongoing. 

It is a positive sign for an anime when the light novel is ongoing, as it increases the chances to obtain a renewal. The more volumes that are available, the greater the chances are to receive a second season.

Firstly, the light novel was ranked eighth in 2017, seventh in 2018, and third in 2019 and 2020 in Takarajimasha’s annual light novel guide book Kono Light Novel ga Sugoi! Just being mentioned in this book is a huge honor, and being on the top of its list for many years consecutively is a tremendous achievement.

Secondly, the light novel has nine volumes available in Japan, and the first season adapted content from volumes 1-4. This means that at least five volumes’ worth of content is available, enough to create a second season. The light novel is still ongoing.

Sales

Here, we’ll be taking a close look at the studio’s profit from the series in terms of Blu-Ray, DVD, and light novel sales. A 12-episode anime like Bottom-tier Character Tomozaki costs about $ 3,000,000 to produce. 

The Blu-Ray disc of the series sold around 773 copies in its first week, a decent number, and in the coming time, it should sell more. More than 5000 units sold is a massive boost for such a series to get a green light for a second season. The light novel currently has 1.2 million copies in circulation; moreover, all nine volumes of the light novel are getting reprints, which is a great sign. This shows that the anime was highly beneficial in boosting the sales of the light novel.

Thus, the sales and popularity aren’t all that big but are decent enough, and they wouldn’t hold the show back from getting a second season.

Popularity

A series’ popularity can be decided from its social media and rankings. Let’s take a look at these for Bottom-tier Character Tomozaki.

The official Twitter handle is regularly updated and has around 64K followers. This shows that the series is popular in Japan. The Japanese audience is the primary audience and makes up about 50% of the sales. In comparison, The Misfit of Demon King Academy’s Twitter page has 87K followers and has been announced for a second season.

The anime is ranked #2493 on MyAnimeList with a rating of 7.23 and about 25k members. It has received a rating of 7.1 on IMDb, and it surpassed Redo of Healer and even Seven Deadly Sins Season 5 on D-Anime Store and was the 10th most-watched anime on the website, a major anime streaming website in Japan.
