Aharen-san Season 2 Plot
The first season of Aharen-san wa Hakarenai introduces Raidō Mastuboshi and Reina Aharen. Raidō starts high school while sitting beside Aharen in class. Raidō struggles to make friends because of his unfriendly facial expressions, and Aharen has no one because she does not possess a clear sense of distance. This can make her come across as either clingy or unbothered.
Gradually, the two of them become each other’s confidante and their relationship grows stronger. However, Aharen’s childhood friend, Mitsuki Oshiro does not approve of their relationship and wants to save her friend from Raidō. As days pass, Aharen and Raidō spend most of their time together, studying or playing games mostly. Raidō also gets pranked by Ren, Aharen’s brother who looks like her, gets introduced to Eru, Aharen’s sister, and takes swimming lessons from Mitsuki.
Their happiness comes under scrutiny from Futaba, and Akkun who admires Aharen and tries to create problems whenever they can. Slowly, the relationship between Aharen and Raidō turns into a sweet love, but neither of them can confess properly. An added push from Mitsuki as a Reversi duel between her and Raidō ends up making them confess their feelings for each other while pondering over the next school year.
Aharen-san season 2 might focus on the next school year, Aharen and Raidō’s new relationship, and more on other characters like Mitsuki, Ren, Futaba, Ms. Tōbaru, Satō, and others. It can also focus on the other remaining volumes of the manga.
