‘O Maidens Of Your Savage Season’ is a simple slice of life anime that explores the feelings and sexuality of a bunch of teenage girls. As generic as this may seem, what makes the anime special is how it dives deep into the psychology of the characters instead of indulging in mindless Ecchi here and there. The whole execution has been done in a very realistic manner which makes this short anime very relatable, especially for a younger Shoujo audience. Despite having a pretty huge cast for its short runtime, the anime manages to effectively distribute its time to properly develop all the main characters. Along with this, it also brings in a few memorable side characters who make the presence of the protagonists more significant. The show starts off by portraying the insecurity of each of the characters and while these traits still remain throughout the story, new ones keep emerging, which adds a lot more depth to each of their personalities.
Coming from a lesser-known anime studio, the art style will take some getting used to as it is old and quite bland. But the more you watch the anime, the more you realize that the art style used is perfectly suitable for its simple heartwarming story. Apart from that, for the most part, the overall animation quality remains consistent and the character movements are also fluid. Even the emotions and expressions of the characters have been depicted in a very natural way which completely immerses you in the story.
If we compare ‘O Maidens Of Your Savage Season’ with other popular typical high school dramas, it sure is one of a kind and I would not only recommend it to Shoujo fans, but also to viewers who are looking for a deep coming-of-age show. Overall, ‘O Maidens Of Your Savage Season’ is a very relatable show that goes a little over-the-top with certain aspects of the story but at the end of the day, it leaves you with a warm “feel good” vibe. If you’ve already started watching this show and are wondering if it will get renewed after the first season, we might have some news for you in the next section.
O Maidens Of Your Savage Season Season 2 Release Date: When will it premiere?
‘O Maidens Of Your Savage Season’ Season 1 premiered on June 6, 2019 and with a total of 12 episodes, it is expected to end on September 21, 2019. ‘O Maidens Of Your Savage Season’ has been adapted from a manga that goes by the same name and to date, the manga has had a total of 7 volumes. Now covering these 7 volumes in the first season itself should not be much of a challenge for the creators. Also, since the last volume of the manga premiered recently on July 9, 2019, it is clearly not on a hiatus of any sort and will probably have more sequels in the future. Assuming that the mangaka will be producing more source material content, we can safely say that the anime will have at least one more sequel.
So far, the anime has been doing fairly well and has received an average rating on most platforms. But most fans will have to wait for a while now if they’re hoping to get a new season of this show because, as mentioned earlier, the creators will run out of all the present source material content that is available. It took the manga author close to two years to come out with the first six volumes of the manga. So keeping this in mind, we can probably expect a season 2 somewhere by the end of 2021. There has been no official news regarding ‘O Maidens of Your Savage Season’ Season 2 yet; but if we get any confirmations in the future, we will surely update it here in this section. Till then, you should definitely check out our list of other similar high school dramas.
