Killing Bites is a unique anime that premiered back in 2018. Its perfect blend of sci-fi and action managed to win everyone’s hearts. As a result, the show made a lot of fans, who are currently demanding to see Killing Bites Season 2. It has been more than three years since the last episode aired on screens. Now, the fandom is getting desperate to see the second season’s premiere episode. So, when will the anime get the green light for a sequel? Here are all the latest details.
Killing Bites is a Japanese sci-fi action anime TV series. It is an adaptation of Shinya Murata and Kazusa Sumita’s manga series of the same title. Liden Films took command of animating the inaugural season of the anime. Its first episode came out on January 13, 2018. The series ran for twelve episodes before concluding on March 31 of the same year.
Manga Compared To Anime
Shinya Murata and Kazusa Sumita began the serialization of this manga series on November 30, 2013. The manga is still on the run, and mangaka is still releasing its new chapters. They have published a total of 16 volumes so far. On the other hand, the anime series was also perfectly paced as it wasn’t very fast nor too slow. The anime adaptation by Liden Films found its stopping point at Chapter 30 of Volume 6.
Therefore, the studio still has ten volumes left to create Killing Bites Season 2. With this remaining content, they can even make two more installments of this sci-fi drama. So, when it comes to the source material, the fans don’t have to worry even a bit because there is plenty of it.
Killing Bites Season 2: Renewal Status
Before renewing any anime, the producers analyze its performance with the help of ratings, popularity, critical reception, and several other factors. The viewership of Killing Bites was good and even got a positive response from the viewers. However, the critic reviews weren’t up to the mark. So, it affected its ratings as well. At the time of writing, Killing Bites has a score of 6.59 on MyAnimeList, which is quite average. However, the great thing is that this action sci-fi anime is really popular. It has more than 154K members in its MAL group, which clearly indicates how huge its fandom is.
Moreover, the production studio has enough content to make Killing Bites Season 2. The producers might’ve had some second thoughts because of the average ratings of the series. However, if the demand for the sequel continues to increase, they will certainly give the green light to it sooner or later.
Killing Bites Season 2: Release Date
Liden Films hasn’t updated anything about the sequel of this year. Three and a half years is quite a long time for the fans to sit and wait patiently for the sequel. It seems like they have no intention to make another installment of this show. But the fans don’t have to worry because the show is popular enough to be picked up by other studios. So, fans can hope that another studio picks up this show for a worthy revival. In that case, Killing Bites Season 2 might hit the screens by 2024. We will update this section accordingly.
