On the surface, Prince of Stride Alternative seems like a show which is bleak and looks like an advertisement for the game, but it is much more than that.

I. Financial Standings

The sports game got everyone. It was highly praised by people who played it due to its realistic storytelling and likable characters.

Subsequently, the idea of combining street racing and parkour wasn’t something you would find every day in a visual novel. There is no exact data regarding sales.

II. Animation Quality

The development of anime series was carried out by one of the best studios — Madhouse. The artwork is flashy and bright throughout the series; there wasn’t any need of it was, but it certainly doesn’t seem extravagant to people.

The background and visuals are state of the art, and the races are choreographed beautifully and designed in such a manner that it’s certain to give you goosebumps while watching it.

III. Shuji Sogabe’s Health

Shuji Sogabe is the man behind the visual novel of ‘Prince of Stride.’ Currently, there are seven volumes of the novel. Sogabe is healthy and is all well as of now. He is widely known for his other work — ‘The Persona Series.’

Kadokawa Games, along with Vridge Inc., published and developed the otome game based on the novel ‘Prince of Stride.’

3. Production Update

There isn’t any update deeming the second installment of the sports anime. Still, according to several reports, the second season is currently in production and will release by the end of 2021.

Still, if this isn’t true and it’s just a rumor, there are high chances that Madhouse will eventually come around the show and start the production of the second season as they haven’t officially abandoned the sports series yet.

4. Key Visual & Trailer

There are no key visuals or trailers out yet.

5. Fandom’s Response

The first season received mixed reviews from the fans. There were ratings of 6s and 7s, consistently dropping on review sites such as MAL and IMDb. Although the game is really well thought out and is intricately designed with its loveable cast, the anime series failed to deliver all of these.

The characters seemed to be one dimensional, and the worst idea was packing the whole game into a 12 episode series. If Madhouse did a 24-episode series, there would have been more character developments, and the plot would not have felt weak.

Regardless of the cons, the races live up to their hype, and you can feel the adrenaline rushing through your veins when you watch them in action.

6. Cast and Staff

The cast and staff for the previous season were:

  • Director – Atsuko Ishizuka
  • Series Composition – Taku Kishimoto
