Around a year before, otakus saw the debut season of Infinite Dendrogram, and now they’re wondering when Infinite Dendrogram Season 2 will return. The anime series follows a very familiar and interesting concept. Its plot develops around the dynamics of game building. Hence, viewers found it pretty fascinating. However, unfortunately, it didn’t manage to impress the critics that much. So, will the sequel of this show ever hit the screens? Here are all the latest details.
Infinite Dendrogram, aka Infinitto Dendoroguramu, is a Japanese fantasy anime series. It follows its plot from a fantasy light novel series of the same title by Sakon Kaidou and Taiki. NAZ Animation Studio picked up the story for an anime adaptation that ran for thirteen episodes. The viewers saw its first episode on January 9, 2020, and it ended on April 16 of the same year.
Infinite Dendrogram Season 2: Renewal Status!
The viewers really liked the first season of the anime series. It has a very neat and unique art style. However, the anime turned out to be not that unique as it offered typical gaming stuff. The audience has seen this type of content a lot of times before. Hence, this is one of the main reasons why the show received average or mixed reviews from the critics. Besides, it might be why the production studio hasn’t renewed Infinite Dendrogram Season 2 so far. However, anime series often take a lot of time in giving a green flag for sequels. Thus, if the demand for the sequel remains constant, the creators will likely renew it.
Is There Enough Source Material?
As we mentioned above, the anime follows the LN series from its plot. The serialization of the Infinite Dendrogram light novel series began back in 2015, and it is still running. Its authors have published a total of 15 volumes so far. The fifteenth volume recently came out in February 2021. And the debut season of the anime series has only adapted the plot till the fifth volume. Therefore, NAZ Studio still has a lot of content to use for the plot of Infinite Dendrogram Season 2. They can even make two more seasons of the anime series with the remaining volumes.
Infinite Dendrogram Season 2: Release Date
Despite getting a great response from the viewers, the anime was not received well by the critics. It only has an average score of 6.14 on MyAnimeList. Well, the rating is quite low as compared to the other shows of the same genre. But the good thing is that the LN and the manga series are still running. Therefore, as long as it receives a good response from the audience, the chances for Infinite Dendrogram Season 2 to happen will remain alive. It is likely that the makers will give another shot to the anime series and renew it for the second season in order to promote the source material.
