On his way home after drinking, he meets a high school girl, Sayu, who is a runaway. Yoshida’s crush decisively rejected him after he had longed for her for 5 long years. Given the sorrow he suffered, he decides to spend the night drinking. However, he accidentally crossed pathways with the runaway high school girl.
Upon their first meeting, Sayu says the two could sleep together but only if he lets her stay with him. Although Yoshida, at first, criticizes her for the weird suggestion, he eventually allows her to stay with him.

While Higehiro Season 1 gets an English dub, what about Season 2? It’s been months since the first season aired, and fans are eagerly waiting for the sequel. Higehiro Season 1 comprises 13 episodes that are licensed by Muse Asia and Crunchyroll in Asia and North America.
Although there isn’t an official announcement yet on Season 2, it is likely on the cards for 2023.

If that happens, fans can expect an OVA episode to get a conclusion to the story.
