When will Bocchi the Rock Season 2 be released? Is it anytime soon?
Bocchi the Rock, which is considered the biggest-selling anime hit of Fall 2022, is one of the few anime that falls under the comedy and music genre. If you think about the reputable K-On, Bocchi the Rock actually runs along the same lines as that, with only a touch of differences here and there. With that being said, if you ever watched K-On beforehand and you became fond of it, Bocchi the Rock would surely suit your taste.
Bocchi the Rock began life as a Japanese four-panel manga series written and illustrated by Aki Hamaji. It started its serialization in Houbunsha’s seinen manga magazine Manga Time Kirara Max in December 2017. As of November 2022, the chapters have been collected in five tankobon volumes.
The manga series Bocchi the Rock was pretty impressive in terms of achievements, as it ranked eighth in the Best Printed Manga category at the fifth Tsugi ni Kuru Manga Awards in 2019.
Fun fact, the main characters of the show, grouped into a band named Kessoku Band, are inspired by the real-life J-rock band Asian Kung-Fu Generation, from which their family names are derived from the aforementioned band. Not only that, but their instrumental roles are matching as well. For example, the Yamada of both bands plays the bass instrument.
