When will the second season release, or will it?
The climax of the first season of Blend S was quite abrupt and did not really “conclude smoothly”. Therefore, fans of the show are expecting a second season of the show that will pick up from where the first season ended. On the other hand, some people believe there won’t be any second season for this show since there are already six volumes of the original Manga and it has been a long time since the first season of the show was released. Had the makers wanted to give us a second part, they would have given it soon after the release of the first season.
The end of the first season created a lot of hype for the second season. In the climax episode of the first season, the members of the bistro go on a Ski trip. There is already a lot of cooking between Maika and Dino. Dino is Maika’s roommate and is head over heels in love with her. He decides to confess his feelings to her, but before he does so, Maika proposes to him.
