Second Season of the Science Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove It Anime to Air in 2022

The official Comic Meteor YouTube channel streamed a teaser trailer for the second season of the Science Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove It anime, which announced that the next season will premiere in 2022.

Crunchyroll describes the series as:

What happens when a science-inclined girl and boy who are deeply passionate about research fall in love?

An intelligent woman named Himuro Ayame who is a science graduate student at Saitama University happens to ask fellow science graduate student Yukimura Shinya out.

Of course, there’s no logical reason for this love. But as a science and engineering major, not being able to logically prove love would mean that those feelings aren’t real, and they’d fail as a science student. With that in mind, the two drag everyone else in the lab into trying various experiments to prove love actually exists.

Dating experiments, the pursuit of a componential explanation for “love,” measuring heart rate, and defining mood value…

There are plenty of laughs and heart-racing moments in this scientific romantic comedy where these loveable and unique science students try to prove that love logically exists.

Crunchyroll simulcast the first season of Science Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove It, and also gave the series an English dub.
