It has been almost two years since fans last saw Cop Craft on screen, and now they’re wondering when Cop Craft Season 2 will hit the screens. The first season of this detective drama gave a mixed feeling to its viewers. The audience liked its story, but they felt the use of CGI was a bit too much. Still, they think that the anime has great potential and want to see its second season. So, when will the series return to the screens? Keep reading to know.
Cop Craft is a Japanese action fantasy anime series. It is the remake of Shoji Gatoh and Range Murata’s light novel series of the same title. Studio Millepensee animated the inaugural installment of this show. The anime made its debut on July 9, 2019, and ran for a total of twelve episodes. The viewers saw the last episode of its first season on October 1, 2019.
Light Novel Compared To The Anime!
As we stated above, the anime follows the LN series of the same title. It followed the storyline of its source material closely, but it did rearrange and skip a lot of content. In fact, not only chapters, but this adaptation skipped entire volumes. The story’s pacing was also a bit fast. On average, it used one volume per four episodes. The first six episodes of this anime adopted Volume 1 and 2 of the LN series.
Its second half skipped the third, fourth and fifth books to jump directly into Volume 6. It adopted the entire sixth volume, but only the ending was different. The production studio provided an original anime ending. Currently, Studio Millepensee has all the three skipped books to make Cop Craft Season 2. These three books are enough for them to produce another full-fledged 12-episode anime installment.
Cop Craft Season 2: Renewal Status!
The debut installment of this action fantasy series received a mixed response. Both viewers and critics praised the anime for some of its brilliant action sequences. Its storyline is also pretty simple and linear. But the excessive use of CGI somewhat ruined this show, and fans didn’t like its art style as well. As a result, it ended up getting an average score of 6.72 on MyAnimeList. But the show is quite popular and has more than 97K members in its MAL group.
As previously mentioned, despite the average reviews, the viewers want to see Cop Craft Season 2 because they think it has great potential. Also, the popularity of this anime is enough to convince the makers to renew it for the second season. Therefore, the chances are great that the production studio will soon give the green light to the sequel of this show.
Cop Craft Season 2: Release Date
It has already been more than eighteen months since fans have been waiting for the anime’s second season. But it seems like they have to wait for the same amount of time again as the series is yet to get a renewal. Well, the production time of almost any anime series of this kind is usually one and a half years. Hence, according to that, fans might get to see Cop Craft Season 2 in the first half of 2023. We will update this section accordingly.
