It has been three years since the completion of Last Hope’s first season. Now, its fans are waiting for an update on Last Hope Season 2. It was an original story that performed averagely. However, the show still developed a loyal fan-following, and now they’re getting desperate to see more episodes of it. So, when will the sequel of Last Hope hit the screens? Here are all the latest details.
Last Hope, also known as Juushinki Pandora in Japanese, is a Japanese-Chinese mecha anime TV series. It is an original project which Shoji Kawamori created. Studio Satelight animated its debut installment. Its premiere episode hit the screens on March 29, 2018. Moreover, the anime ran for a total of 26 episodes before ending on September 20 of the same year.
Last Hope Season 2: Renewal Details
The first season of Juushinki Pandora got a mixed response from everyone. It met with an average critical reception, and the viewers also gave mixed reviews to it. These reviews affected its ratings. At the time of writing, it has an average score of 6.32 on MyAnimeList. The popularity of this show is not very high too. Only 34K members are present in its MAL group. The performance of the show wasn’t really well on the commercial side as well. So, at present, nothing seems to be in favor of Last Hope Season 2.
A prequel manga series that began its serialization in March 2018 is still running. Hence, there is a slight possibility that the makers will renew this show for the second season just to promote the manga series. Besides that, it will only happen if the popularity of the anime increases suddenly. Therefore, now it seems like there is no hope left for the second season of Last Hope.
