I’ve Somehow Gotten Stronger When I Improved My Farm-Related Skills Season 2 Release Date and Countdown
As of May 2023, I’ve Somehow Gotten Stronger When I Improved My Farm-Related Skills Season 2 doesn’t have a release date as it is not confirmed yet. However, if a new season is confirmed, it is likely to air sometime in mid-2024, or possibly in late-2024.
This is cause the second season premiered from October 2022 to December 2022 and it typically takes around 1-2 years to produce a new season.
As of now, no official announcements have been made yet, hence the readers need to keep in mind that these are just speculations.
But, keep an eye out for this space as we will update it as soon as something official is announced. We can expect the announcement in the next few months.
Noumin Kanren no Skill Bakka Agetetara Nazeka Tsuyoku Natta Season 2 Countdown:
Based on the following information, here is the countdown to the premiere of Noumin Kanren no Skill Bakka Agetetara Nazeka Tsuyoku Natta’s second season.Countdown
I’ve Somehow Gotten Stronger When I Improved My Farm-Related Skills Season 2 Renewal Status: Confirmed or Cancelled
As of writing, Studio A-Cat, the publisher Futabasha, or any other member of the production committee has not officially renewed the anime for a second season.
A lot of anime manage to get a new season right after the season finale but unfortunately, Noumin Kanren no Skill Bakka Agetetara Nazeka Tsuyoku Natta wasn’t one of them.

Production Studios consider various financial and commercial metrics before announcing a renewal and it is possible to speculate whether an anime will get a new season or not by carefully evaluating these three factors:
- Availability of source material
We have used the same method for Eminence in Shadow, Takagi-san, Call of the Night and World Trigger and so far it has proven to work.
So now we will examine these factors to see if I’ve Somehow Gotten Stronger When I Improved My Farm-Related Skills anime will get a sequel or not.
Is there enough Source material available for I’ve Somehow Gotten Stronger When I Improved My Farm-Related Skills Season 2?
I’ve Somehow Gotten Stronger When I Improved My Farm-Related Skills is a direct adaptation of the light novel series penned by Shobonnu with illustrations drawn by Sogawa.
It started publication online as a web novel in May 2018 on the user-generated novel publishing website Shosetsuka ni Naro (Let’s Become Novelist) and was later acquired by Futabasha who published the series in physical form.
The first volume of the light novel was released on March 30, 2017, and the latest issue come out on November 30, 2018.
A total of 5 volumes have been released so far, and the light novel is finished.
The first season of the anime covered 2 volumes out of 5, leaving us behind with 3 volumes which is more than enough to create another anime season.
This is a good sign cause this shows that the production committee are looking at this series as a long-term project by adapting only 2 volumes over 12 episodes and maintaining a perfect pace, much like what “Eminence in Shadow” did despite the fact that the series had ended 4 years ago.
Rather than just treating it as just a promotional tool for the novel and trying to adapt as much as they can, resulting in an uneven story build-up, lack of character development, and inconsistent pacing, as seen in the “Genius Prince” or “Orient” anime.
Conclusion: Currently, there are 3 volumes of source material available to adapt, which is good news since the series has more than enough material for Studio A-Cat to start working on a new season right away.
Moreover, the series is still ongoing with a consistent release of new volumes, so that’s a big plus for getting a sequel.
Manga Sales and Profitability
Before we proceed, it’s important to understand that most of the anime we watch today are created primarily to promote and boost the sales of its source material (in this case manga).
Sales from the manga and related merchandise are the main source of income for the producers, while revenue from advertising fees, online streaming licensing, and Blu-ray sales are considered secondary
Typically, a 12-episode anime television series costs around $3,000,000 to produce.
Therefore, an anime has to make back this much money through merchandise sales and licensing fees to ensure a new season from the producers.
As of April 2023, I’ve Somehow Gotten Stronger When I Improved My Farm-Related Skills had reached a circulation count of 1.2 Million copies across the novels and manga adaptation.
Conclusion: typically, a light novel with 500,000 to 1,000,000 copies in circulation is considered successful, so the series is performing well in that regard.
Blu-ray/ DVDs and other Merchandise sales
While Blu-rays and DVDs are no longer key players in determining anime success as they used to be back in the 2010s, they are still a great tool to understand a show’s popularity among the general Japanese audience. In general, if an anime’s disc sales are over 3,000, a second season would be promising.
As for I’ve Somehow Gotten Stronger When I Improved My Farm-Related Skills, the situation doesn’t look very promising.
The sales numbers for the first Blu-ray/DVD volume were so low that it failed to even make it to Oricon’s weekly sales ranking which means it couldn’t even manage to sell more than 200 copies.
However, it’s important to note that Blu-ray sales are no longer the only measure of a show’s success, as streaming fees have become a more significant factor in the industry.
Conclusion: Based on the sales numbers, it appears that I’ve Somehow Gotten Stronger When I Improved My Farm-Related Skills anime failed to make a profit for its producers through its home video release, which is not a promising sign for the show’s future.
However, it is possible that the show managed to recoup its production costs through licensing fees and merchandise sales, so there may still be hope for its continuation.
Popularity in Japan and the West
I’ve Somehow Gotten Stronger When I Improved My Farm-Related Skills light novel was already quite popular in Japan prior to the anime’s release, and its popularity has surged even further since then as evidenced by its impressive 1.2 million circulation count.
The series initially started off as a web novel, but with its increasing popularity, it was acquired by Futabasha. With even more popularity the series was greenlit for a manga adaptation with art by Aki Taruto in April 2018.
Furthermore, the series was able to receive an anime adaptation four years after the novels concluded, which shows the loyal following the series has generated and the trust from its producers.
The anime’s debut in Japan was highly anticipated, and it quickly became one of the most-watched shows of the Winter 2022 season. It ranked top on several streaming websites, including the D-Anime Store and AbemaTV and was one of the most-talked shows on the internet.
On NicoVideo, Japan’s largest hosting site which is their version of YouTube, the premiere episode received over 103k views and 12k comments.
The debut run of the Noumin Kanren no Skill Bakka Agetetara Nazeka Tsuyoku Natta anime received a positive reception from fans in the West, with many viewers and critics praising it for being even better than the source material in some aspects.
The series has garnered positive reviews from viewers around the world, earning a decent score of 5.9 on MyAnimeList and ranking at #1800 in popularity, with more than 110k members in its MAL group.
It has also received a terrible score of 5.5/10 on IMDb and a 57% approval rating on AniList. This shows that the show’s popularity is very high even though it is a young series.
In conclusion, the series has not lived up to the expectations of producers both commercially and critically, as evidenced by the mentioned metrics and poor ratings from fans and critics alike. Furthermore, the fact that the original source material has already been concluded implies that there is no longer a need for further promotion.
Thus, I’ve Somehow Gotten Stronger When I Improved My Farm-Related Skills will have a hard time getting a second season.
