The Girl I Like Forgot Her Glasses season 2 renewal status
Before the final episode of episode 13, the anime The Girl I Like Forgot Her Glasses had not yet been renewed by Studio GoHands for season 2.
Modern anime renewal often depends on two main factors: the availability of source material from the original manga or light novel series, and the popularity of the series more broadly.
As for The Girl I Like Forgot Her Glasses, there’s both good and bad news for fans looking forward to the second season of the romantic comedy anime.
The good news is that Koume Fujichika’s original manga is still ongoing and has released 11 complete Tankobon volumes in Japan since its launch in November 2018. Based on the amount of manga the anime has presented so far, it’s likely There will certainly be plenty of source material left to air another 13 episodes.
It should be noted that the anime also produced a notable increase in manga sales, as the series surpassed one million copies in circulation in August 2023.
The bad news is that the global response to her The Girl I Like Forgot Anime Glasses has been less than ideal, with scores just slightly above average across various user-based feedback sites. These include 6.89/10 on MyAnimeList, 65% on Anilist, 3.4/5 on Anime Planet and 6.8/10 on IMDB.
While these scores certainly aren’t a death sentence in terms of season 2 renewal status, they’re not high enough to give us confidence that the show will return in the near future – but when will the new anime maybe launch a second date?

When can The Girl I Like Forgot Her Glasses season 2 be released?
An anime adaptation of The Girl I Like Forgot Her Glasses was announced in January 2023, with the series launching globally in July 2023 – although production may take place several months before this announcement.
Assuming that season 2 will go through a similar six to nine month release cycle, The Girl I Like Forgot Her Glasses could return as soon as July 2024 as there is enough source material to begin production immediately instantly.
One potential hiccup here is that this remains one of Studio GoHands’ lowest-scoring anime series to date. With more popular IPs already in place like Seitokai, K, and even The Masterful Cat is Depression, it should come as no surprise that The Girl I Like Forgot Her Glasses was put on hold.
If you can’t wait for The Girl I Like Forgot Her Glasses to return for a second season, why not check out the original manga?
Five volumes of the manga have been published in English, with physical and digital copies available through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, BAM, and Indigo.
The Girl I Like Forgot My Glasses season 1 is streaming on Crunchyroll.
