A fan asked if the reason behind the lack of a second season had to do with the difference between the anime’s ending and the ending of the light novel series. But, Kamiya denies it by saying:

“In a sequel, you can go back in the chronology or even change the story, so that is not the problem.”

  • He even clarified that the reason for the difference in the anime’s ending compared to the light novel was due to the director’s wish for an unconventional conclusion.
  • He added that the first season’s finale was adapted from Volume 6 of the light novel series, which he had written during the production of the show.

Studios may have been held back from investing in the project due to this fear, leaving fans waiting for the series to return.
