Key points for Rascal Does Not Dream: University Arc news
- So, we’ve got the official confirmation that the University arc of “Rascal Does Not Dream” is getting an anime adaptation, following the recent release of those sequel movies.
- Personally, I’m leaning towards it being another movie, given the previous pattern with sequel movies and the fact that the University arc covers just one volume of the light novel.
- It’s great to see the series getting the love it deserves. The quick announcement of the University arc suggests the movies did well, even though it means a bit of a wait for me to actually watch and write about it. Nonetheless, super excited!
I am so glad that we got confirmation for the adaptation of this arc so soon. Last time, we had to wait quite sometime before we got any sequel news at all. But, after the two sequel movies, Rascal Does Not Dream of a Sister Venturing Out/Knapsack Kid, we have confirmation that next we will be getting an anime adaptation for the University arc. After Season 1, all the sequels have been in the form of movies so it is pretty likely that this will be a movie as well. But, more on that later.
For now, welcome back to another news article. There are a lot of great news stories this week, and I will cover them all one by one so stay tuned. Either way, right now, we are talking about Rascal Does Not Dream: University Arc. Let’s get started.
What do we know about the new Rascal Does Not Dream anime?
After A Sister Venturing Out premiered on June 23rd (Japanese Times), we had another sequel film for the series this year, Rascal Does Not Dream of a Knapsack Kid, which came out recently on 1st December. During the screening of this movie, it was revealed that the university arc is under production as well. Both the sequel movies covered volumes 8 and 9 of the LN. The university arc will cover volume 10 of the LN. For now, we only have a character visual for the UNiversirty arc anime, but we will get more info soon.
What Do I think?
I am 90% sure that this is going to be another movie. Because the university arc spans only a single volume of the LN. They managed to make a really good movie in the Dreaming Girl arc even though they were handling 2 volumes at once in that. And of course, the recent two sequel movies adapted one volume each. So yes, I do think that this is going to be a movie. This kind of sucks for me as it will be a while before I get to watch the movie even though I have to write about them.
All that said though, I am still very happy that this series is getting all the love and credit it deserves. The movies must have done pretty well seeing how soon this arc got announced.
That is all for now!
So yeah, I am very excited about Rascal Does Not Dream: University arc. I will have to wait for a while after release till I get to see it but I am sure it will be worth the wait, this series generally is. Let me know what you guys think in the comments. I will take my leave here. See ya!!
