The series received a 13-episode anime adaptation by studio CloverWorks, as well as a sequel movie titled Rascal Does Not Dream of a Dreaming Girl.
Yen Press licensed the series. The plot of the Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai is described as:
Bunny girls do not live in libraries. This is simply common sense. And yet, that’s exactly where Sakuta finds one in the wild. More bewildering is who the bunny girl is: Mai Sakurajima, a girl one year older than Sakuta, famous at their school for her acting career even though she’s currently on break. To top it all off, it seems like no one else in the library can see Mai at all, no matter what she does or…wears. Wanting to find out more about this mystery and maybe get a little closer to this beautiful upperclassman in the process, Sakuta launches an investigation to discover why an unforgettable bunny girl keeps becoming totally invisible.

Rascal Does Not Dream of a Sister Venturing Out:
After a draining December, Sakuta is quickly nearing the end of his second year of high school. Since Mai is a third-year student, they don’t have much time left together before graduation rolls around. Meanwhile, his sister, Kaede, is slowly but steadily venturing outdoors again. Just as she begins to find her footing, she announces her most ambitious goal yet—attending her brother’s high school! Sakuta knows better than anyone how difficult this will be for Kaede, and he’s ready to support her however he can. He’s just not sure if that’s what’s best for her…or what she really wants…
Rascal Does Not Dream of a Knapsack Kid:
Finally, the day of Mai’s high school graduation has arrived. While Sakuta eagerly waits for his girlfriend, an elementary schooler who looks exactly like her appears before him. Suspicious, and for all the wrong reasons… Meanwhile, Sakuta and Kaede’s father suddenly calls, saying that their mother wants to see her daughter. She was hospitalized because Kaede’s condition had been too much for her to bear, so what could she possibly want now?
