The first season was a bit disappointing with a good and promising plot. It relies heavily on the plot twists but soon they become predictable. However, those who made it to the end must be excited about the next season

But still the future of TV anime series in uncertain, no official announcement has been made so far. The studio which did the animation for the season one, Geek Toys is currently busy with another project Date A Bullet, which is slated to be released in 2021.
