Which Studio Will Animate Sabikui Bisco Season 2?
OZ Studio animated the first season of Sabikui Bisco and will probably also animate the second season. Studio OZ is the new studio in the animation industry, and Sabikui Bisco is their first-ever project. However, the staff member of the studio is very experienced. Some of its staff members have previously worked in Ufotable studio, which is best known for Demon Slayer and Fate Series.
Besides, the studio has experience with anime production. Previously, they have contributed their part in Steins Gate, Fullmetal Alchemist, and more. They mostly did the ending part, like the editing and finishing touches. Sabikui Bisco is their first solo project, but they have played an essential role in producing other anime as well.
The animation of Sabikui Bisco is outstanding. Fans were amazed at how clean the animation looks even though it’s OZ studio’s first anime. Fight scenes, graphics, color, everything was just perfect.

Is the Sabikui Bisco Light Novel And Manga Series Finished?
Sabikui Bisco has a light novel and a manga series. ASCII Media Works published the light novel series, and Square Enix published manga part 1 and part 2. The light novel series started in 2018 and is still ongoing. As for manga, Part One began in 2019 and finished in 2021, while manga Part 2 started in 2021 and was completed in 2022.
The light novel so far has eight volumes. Manga Part 1 has four books, and Part 2 has book slumps. If fans don’t want to wait for the anime, they can start reading the light novel Volume 2 to know what happens next. The first season has covered the entire volume 1, and season 2 is expected to cover volume 2.
But fans should also read Volume 1 because it has some details that anime couldn’t animate. Even after season 2, there is still enough source material left for 4-5 complete seasons, so lack of source material will not be a problem for Sabikui Bisco. The light novel series was also well-loved by fans. In 2021, it was revealed that 300k copies of light novels were in circulation, and by 2023, the number must’ve reached 600k.
Sabikui Bisco Season 2 Plot
Sabikui Bisco takes place in Japan, which is converted into sandy plains after the apocalypse. People believe this all happened because of a mushroom and those who consumed it. But among them, Bisco Akaboshi, also known as Man-Eating Mushroom, has a different ideology on the whole situation. Akaboshi believes that if he manages to find the Sabikui mushroom, every problem will be solved, and people won’t criticize him or his mushrooms after that.
But he soon realizes that this mushroom is different. At the end of season 1, Milo and Bisco are happy to be together again, but Bisco’s right arm glows and spores. Milo suspects he’s part human and part Rust-Eater. Pawoo helps split the mask, but Bisco promises her anything she wants. Pawoo kisses Bisco, and Jabi shoots him at the Tetsujin’s head.
The show falls off, and Kurokawa is blinded. Milo shoots an arrow, killing Kurokawa. Rust-Eater mushrooms destroy the Tetsujin and Rust, and even Pawoo’s infection disappears. The Rust-Eater mushrooms cure everyone in Imihama, and Pawoo declares independence. Bisco and Milo leave Imihama to find a way to undo Bisco’s Rust-Eater transformation.
Sabikui Bisco Season 2 will cover volume 2, and the plot of volume 2 goes something like this: Bisco and Milo embark on an epic adventure to Shimane, where they encounter the immortal monk Kelshinha. He steals Bisco’s stomach, leaving him vulnerable to rust eaters. Bisco and Milo must retrieve their bodies before Bisco dies in five days.
