Masato Hayashi, the producer of Asobimo's Btooom! Online game app, promised at the end of the game's unveiling event on Monday that if the game ranks in the top 5 of Japan's app sales chart, the second season of the Btooom! anime will be made.

Well that's some good news for Btooom fans. Idk if the game will rank #5 in Japan but if it really does, then hello Season 2.

maybe i'm being harsh, but if they want their app to rank top 5 they should offer something which compels people to make in-app purchases, instead of going the lazy way and promising a season 2 to Btooom! fans if they make a ton of in-app purchases. if an app can't reach top 5 on its own merits, then it doesn't deserve top 5 - that's my take anyway.

Yah. The whole thing smacks of ingratitude. As if the fans exist for the artist. "Buy a bunch of our stuff and we'll reward you with some table scraps" or something. Well, no, "make a good animation, and maybe we'll reward you with our dollars by purchasing it"

Probably just a stunt to get more people playing. I doubt they honestly expect the game to reach the top 5. But if it does they better keep their word.

Season 1 ended just when something big was about to happen, so I certainly want to see Season 2 coming. I can't see Top 5 happening, but I'm hoping that it happens. Then again, Madhouse is notorious for snubbing on the sequels (with One Punch Man being an exception as that show would have undoubtedly be two cours if it had enough source material ready). In any case, it needs to happen.

nope. they only said they would make it if Btooom ranked top 5 in top grossing. it only ranked top 5 in most popular / most downloaded free app.

^this. if they really wanted to make a season 2 but lacked the funds, they could just do crowdfunding
if they just wanted to see how much people wanted a season 2, they could ask people to like a tweet.
crowdfunding allows people to check the progress and see that they actually keep their word
making a promise if the app reaches top 5 is a very sketchy move at best. it's impossible to hold them accountable this way.

First One Punch Man season 2, than this and finally Overlord season 2? So Madhouse can count to 2

Also this is a dumb way to promote a game. Kind of shady.

The game didn't even make the top 50 grossing apps. It was the #1 free downloaded app for a little while but no one was buying. Too bad. Manga is nearing its end too so a second season was unlikely to be financed by the publisher anyway.
