Science Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove it Season 2
Earlier this week, Alifred Yamamoto, creator of the manga series Science Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove it, announced on Twitter through ANN that the anime adaptation of the manga is getting a second season, and the series had an event in Tokyo on Saturday. To celebrate the announcement, Yamamoto posted an image seen above.
For those unfamiliar with the anime, a synopsis via Crunchyroll can be seen below:
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 grad 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.
