After finally completing the first route of his visual novel, Blessing Software's producer Tomoya Aki is optimistic about the future of his team and achieving their goal of creating the best game of the season.
However, they still have a long way to go. For one, Megumi Katou still has an incredibly flat personality and is unable to fit the role of Tomoya's ideal heroine. The other members of Blessing Software, Eriri Spencer Sawamura, Utaha Kasumigaoka, and Michiru Hyoudou, often forget she is even there due to her lack of presence and character.
Throughout the development of their game, Blessing Software learns the struggles of working in an industry where deadlines must be met and edits are made constantly, and the hardships of working in a group setting.
Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata ♭ – The Unforgettable Journey Continues
Before diving deeper into the world of our beloved otaku, let’s give a brief overview of what Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata ♭ has in store for you. It’s a captivating sophomore season of the anime series known as “How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend,” a compelling mix of comedy and romance packed with captivating character dynamics. The story revolves around Tomoya Aki, an otaku who is inspired to create his own dating sim after a fleeting, cherry blossom-filled encounter with a beautiful girl.
To bring his vision to life, Tomoya recruits Eriri Spencer Sawamura, a tsundere artist, and Utaha Kasumigaoka, a prodigious novelist. Joining them is the girl who started it all, Megumi Katō, who, unlike her flamboyant teammates, is refreshingly ordinary, or as the title suggests, ‘boring.’ When we embark on season two, we follow the complications, challenges and unpredictable relationship dynamics that the team experiences.
If season one of Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata made you laugh and warm up to our quartet, this sequel, Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata ♭, would undoubtedly make you fall in love with them.

Whether you should opt to rent, buy, or stream this anime depends on your personal preference, but it gets a sure-fire recommendation from me.
One big plus-point of Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata ♭ is how it progresses the story of its inaugural season without missing a beat. It keeps the humor and wit that made the original so popular but manages to cover more ground, offering a more substantial exploration of our primary cast’s complexities and vulnerabilities.
Illustration and animation quality has always been a strong suit for this anime, and this season is no different. The light color palette and clean animation style complements the cheerful and comedic tone of the show, all the while ensuring that dramatic moments are rendered with great intensity.
The characters are this anime’s real stars. Their development is handled admirably, with each character’s arc evolving in unexpected yet meaningful ways. A standout is Megumi, who undergoes some substantial transformation, challenging her ‘boring’ tag.
Music and audio design serves as another strong pillar of strength. The upbeat opening track is catchy, and the series’ background music never feels monotonous, enhancing the storytelling instead.
In summary, Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata ♭ is a highly satisfying follow-up to an already great season one. If you enjoyed the first, the second is simply a no-brainer. Whether you choose to rent, buy or stream, you won’t be disappointed with this witty, funny and surprisingly poignant anime.
