Kill La Kill Season 2 has made the fans wait for eight years now. After ending its first season in 2014, the anime bid a long farewell to its fans. The story of a young girl looking for the killers of her father brings about the best plot that has come in the history of anime. However, if the show has been that good, why did it never get a renewal at last? The answer to this is many. Plus, there also is hope for a new season. We have gathered all the information that you need for the show. So, here is what you need to know about it!
First coming out in Kiru Ra Kiru anime is one of the most well-known action shows. The show is an original creation of Hiroyuki Imaishi. Written by Kazuki Nakashima, Studio Trigger was the studio working on it. After a manga release, the fans are desperately waiting for the new season to come out!
Kill La Kill Season 2: Renewal Status
The 24-episode first season aired its first episode on October 4, 2013. And with this, the season ended, airing on March 28, 2014. With this, the season took a leap of some months and came back with an OVA Episode in 2015. It has now been eight years, and there has been no news of the show whatsoever. In addition, no cast or staff member of the show has mentioned the plot or revival of the new series. In most cases, there is some word of the show coming back.
But in this case, there has been no update on Kill La Kill Season 2. Does that mean that the show has been silently canceled? Well, Studio Trigger has been a busy company since then. But the animation giant has not mentioned any break or cancellation. The overall reception and popularity of the show has been consistent all these years. The IMDb score of the show has been 7.5 stars out of 10. The MAL Score of the show is as high as 8 stars.
An 8-star rating in MAL is a big achievement. And the number of people scoring the show has reached to a million. This truly validates the popularity of the show. Thus, if the show was ever to come back, there would surely be a surge in the revenue of Studio Trigger.
A Complete Story?
The biggest argument in favor of the cancelation of Kill La Kill Season 2 is the plot itself. A huge hoard of fans suggests that Kill La Kill is a complete story on its own. In addition to this, the character arcs were complete as well. As a result of this, the argument is brought up time and again that there is no need for Kill La Kill Season 2. But if you find yourself reading this, there definitely is a need to bring a new season to the floors. Even though the story was complete on its own, there still are many ways in which it can come back.
Dragon Ball Series also came back to the floors with a new show DBZ. Thus, there might as well be a way in which Kill La Kill Season 2 can be presented to the fans.
Is There Any Source Material?
Unfortunately, the Kill La Kill project is the original direction of Hiroyuki Imaishi. Written by Kazuki Nakashima, the text does not have an original manga behind it. Instead, the manga was released alongside the anime on the same day as the release of its first episode. The three-volume text had as much plot as there was in the anime. Thus, there is no source material blocking the release of the new season. But as mentioned, Kill La Kill was a complete story on its own.
Thus, expecting a new season means new characters set in the same world. Or, the makers can also introduce a time leap and present the older version of all the characters that we are dealing with. There currently is no spin-off or side story that can bring up the new season or spin-off. It will be interesting to see what the next step would be from the end of the creators.
Kill La Kill Season 2: Any Movie Plans?
The space of news has been barren since the end of the first season. Thus, it is tough to say whether something is happening in the show or not. Content giant Netflix used to be a silver lining hope for many fans. This is a company that has released a lot of shows in the past that was stuck in the release loop. But considering the losses that this company has also undergone, the chances of seeing such reboots have decreased by a huge number.
Lately, the market of animated and anime-based films has been bringing in huge profit numbers to the industry. Starting with Demon Slayer Mugen Train and Swordsmith Village arc, JJK 0 and DBS Super Hero movies have brought in wonderful numbers to this fraternity. As a result of this, the demand for a Kill La Kill movie will be accepted with open arms rather than that of Kill La Kill Season 2.
Kill La Kill Season 2: Release Date
The sheer demand for the second season comes from the fans who are desperate to watch more of the show. Otherwise, even these fans are content with the fact that the story was complete on its own. However, considering the fact that anime films are performing wonders in domestic as well as overseas, there is a chance that Kill La Kill Season 2 will be replaced by a movie project. We will be sure to update this section as soon as there is more detail on this. Thus, keep an eye on The Anime Daily to get all the updates right here.
