The new project will be adapting the Rascal Does Not Dream of a Sister Venturing Out and Rascal Does Not Dream of a Knapsack Kid light novels for the next two arcs of the anime. Soichi Masui continues directing the anime at Cloverworks.
The first Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai TV anime, which was originally inspired by the light novel series written by Hajime Kamoshida and illustrated by Keji Mizoguchi, aired from October 4, 2018, to December 27, 2018. The series also inspired the 2019 anime film Rascal Does Not Dream of a Dreaming Girl.
Crunchyroll is streaming the Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai TV anime, describing it as such:
Puberty syndrome – Abnormal experiences rumored on the internet to be caused by sensitivity and instability during adolescence. This year, Sakuta Azusagawa, a second-year student at a high school near Enoshima, meets several girls that are experiencing this “puberty syndrome.” For instance, he meets a wild bunny girl in the library. She turns out to be an actress on hiatus, Mai Sakurajima, who is also his senior at the school. For some reason, no one else can see this enchanting girl. How did she become invisible…?
More details on the Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai sequel anime are to be confirmed at a later stage.
