So, is the second season renewed by Studio OZ? What are the chances? Here is everything you need to know about it.
Luckily, there is a good chance that fans will meet Bisco and Milo in a new season. The debut season left on a cliffhanger. On top of that, fans are also demanding the series. So, Studio OZ might not think twice before renewing the season. Let’s analyze the odds of its comeback.
Sabikui Bisco Season 2: Renewed Or Canceled?
Sadly, the second season of the popular anime has not been renewed by the makers yet. The first episode of the Sabikui Bisco was released on January 11, 2022. Three months later, the finale aired on March 29, 2022. However, all through this time, there was no mention of Sabikui Bisco Season 2. But there is no need to fret as the anime has a bright future ahead. The popularity of the show has been pretty high, and fans love the studio’s fresh approach.
Will It Ever Come Back?
As mentioned, there is a good chance that Sabikui Bisco Season 2 will come back. The first season hit the screens with a good start. The anime is about a post-apocalyptic Japan where rust is the biggest growing problem. The unique concept of mushrooms fighting rusts was loved by the fans. The reception of the show was also as good as the manga. The anime scored 7.2 stars out of 10 on IMDb. For a new anime fantasy series, this is a pretty good score.
In addition, the anime scores 7.27 stars out of 10 on MyAnimeList. Plus, more than fifty-thousand users have rated the show so far. This shows that the popularity of the show is very high even though it is a young series. On top of this, the light novel ranked first in the ‘New Work Ranking’ in 2019. And as of 2021, the series has more than 300,000 copies in circulation.
Is There Enough Source Material?
Sabikui Bisco is an original light novel series created by Shinji Cobkubo. The novel first came out in the year 2018. As of April 2022, the novel has released eight volumes so far. In 2019, the first part of the manga was released by Square Enix. In January 2022, Studio OZ greenlit the Sabikui Bisco anime project. However, the anime does not take the story from the manga. Instead, it draws the story from the light novel.
The first season of 12 episodes only covers the first volume of the LN. This leaves more than seven volumes of the light novel for Sabikui Bisco Season 2. One more good news for the fans is that Volume 2 is set to release in May 2022. So now, fans can read the upcoming story in English before the anime comes back.
What Will Happen In Season 2?
By the final episode of the anime, a lot had happened in the anime already. The twelfth and final episode, “Bow and Arrow,” showed that Milo was finally able to reunite with Bisco. However, Milo sees that Bisco’s body was showing all the signs of exuding spores over him. Thus, Milo understood that he was a half-human, half-Rust Eater. After a successful raid that they performed, aid was finally given to the population of Imihama. They were able to provide a limitless cure to the people of the town.
On the other side, Pawoo managed to become the new Governor of Imihama. The first thing he did after becoming the leader was publically denounce the prosecution of the Mushroom Keepers. Towards the end of the season, Bisco and Milo decided that they were going to journey to a far-off land. The aim was to undo the Rust-Eater transformation. Now, Sabikui Bisco Season 2 will take a look at their new journey. All the characters that we met in the first season will not come back in the sequel. Now, fans will meet all the new characters and newer adventures.
Sabikui Bisco Season 2: Release Date
