Alderamin On The Sky Season 2: Renewal Status
The last episode of the 2016 show aired on September 30 that year. In most cases, a new season is usually announced or teased in the final episode of the series. However, in this case, there was no word from the makers at all. It was as if the makers had taken a complete break and shelved the project. Neither the makers nor any of the cast members of the show gave away any news about the next season. All in all, Alderamin On The Sky Season 2 has not been renewed. But what are the chances that it will come back after seven years? Let’s find out!
Manga Revenue Struggle!
The anime business is, more or less, dependent on the manga business itself. After all, it is mostly the sales of the manga that funds the animation of the show. In some cases, anime adaptations are revived only in order to boost the sales of the manga. Recent reports in the case of Alderamin On The Sky Season 2 suggest that after the release of the first season, the makers were expecting a surge in the sales of the source material.
But insider news updates suggest that the sale numbers could not even touch four digits properly. Post-2016, Taiki Kawakami’s sold only three-hundred copies in total. And so, the entire purpose of bringing a new manga to the floors was defeated. The banner of Alderamin On The Sky could not earn as much revenue to get a new season in the future. As a result of this, there are rumors that Alderamin On The Sky Season 2 got silently canceled.
Is There Enough Source Material For Alderamin On The Sky Season 2?
Alderamin On The Sky is an original light novel series of the year 2012. The story is an original work of Bokuto Uno. The 14-volume LN was serialized from June 2012 to August 2018. And after that, Taki Kawakami brought the manga to the floors with seven volumes. Of these seven volumes, only four were animated for the first season. So to say, Alderamin On The Sky Season 2 has ample material left to adapt. Moreover, if much of the content is exhausted in the second season, there is a light novel.
The LN can easily leverage more than three seasons to come in the future. But it is the revenue and production that are the big questions in the release of the next season. Let’s see if Madhouse is ever bringing back the outing!
No Hope At All: Studio Madhouse!
Madhouse is one animation company that has a bad reputation when it comes to sequels. Every time the name of this studio is associated with any show, fans already know that the renewal is to take a lot of time. The same is the case with Alderamin On The Sky Season 2. The show’s first season was produced by this company, and since then, Madhouse has been silent on the matter. As of 2023, the company is working on multiple projects at the time.
The list includes the likes of The Vampire Dies In No Time, Ai No Idenshi, and Frieren. But the show that we are talking about has no word from this animation company whatsoever. Does that mean that the anime has been canceled once and for all? Well, that answer will be clarified only by the makers.
What Will Happen Next?
The brief story of Alderamin On The Sky revolves around the area of the Katjvarna Empire. And the story opens with the introduction to the fact that war is to break out between the neighbors. Kiorka Republic and this empire in particular. And so we meet with Ikta, the war strategist working for the Katjvarna Empire. The complete back and forth between the two sides of the Empire made up the story for the entire first season. However, the end of it the 13th episode leaves the story on a cliffhanger.
Here, the main focus of the story now is the origin of the setup of the tale. Considering that it is named ‘Alderamin On The Sky,’ the North Pole star has to do something with the show. Stars had been the central theme of the show right from the beginning. However, the significance of that metaphor was never dissected in its true sense.
As a result of this, Alderamin On The Sky Season 2 will take a route toward the origin of the Katjvarna. Moreover, there will come a time when Ikta will question his own routes and identity in the next of the season. But will there ever be a new season? Who are the creators of this world? What is the star here for? Only time will give away that answer!
