Monster Musume Game

The series also got developed into a PC game released in December 2015. On Japanese TV, this series aired on Tokyo MX, KBS, BS11, AT-X & Sun TV. Daisuki streams this series in Latin America, Singapore, The Philippines, Indonesia & Thailand. Crunchyroll does the same in the USA, Canada, UK, South Africa, Ireland, Australia, Latin America, the Netherlands, New Zealand & Turkey.

Right after season one, fans got their expectations high for a second season, an easter egg in the last episode hinted the plans for season two. Producers of the show at the time confirmed the second season, the expectations for the release of the show floated late 2019, and yet, it’s almost May 2020, and still, there’s no official information about those issues, meaning that either the makers have little enthusiasm about the project –half a decade is a long time to think about it–.

There are OVAs for Monster Musume, hardly a second season. For five years, the producers released those OVAs, and the hype surrounding merchandise helped fuel some of that investment, with an eventual drop on sales. Also, collector items have trends, and these trends transform into interest for the renewal of a series with a significant fan base & critic acclaim.
