When will MAPPA and Lapin Track collaborate again to produce Sarazanmai Season 2? A lot of fans have been asking this question ever since they watched the first season of this action anime. Sarazanmai was one of the most realistic, optimistic, and streamlined shows. Hence, it managed to get a huge number of fans in a very short period of time. So, when will these fans see the much-awaited sequel of this anime? Here is everything to know.
Sarazanmai is a Japanese supernatural action fantasy anime series. Studio MAPPA and Lapin Track collaborated to produced the first season of this original show. The premiere episode of the anime came out on April 12, 2019. It ran for a total of eleven episodes before reaching its conclusion on June 21 of the same year. Since then, otakus around the globe are waiting to see the second run of this show.
Sarazanmai Season 2: Renewal Status!
There was a solid hype around the show even before its premiere. The news that MAPPA and Lapin Track are working together on a project was enough to excite the anime fans. Fortunately, when the show came, it didn’t disappoint the viewers and turned out to be an action fantasy treat for them. It goes without saying that it had a lot of flaws. Yet, that was overshadowed by its realistic and engaging storyline. As a result, the show managed to get a good score of 7.51 on MyAnimeList. It clearly indicates how good this show actually was.
Also, it has a total of more than 110K members in its MAL group. Despite the brilliant response, neither of the two studios renewed Sarazanmai Season 2 so far. It must happen due to the busy schedule of Studio MAPPA. In fact, there was a rumor that this show will enter one season of wonders because the production studios collaborated for one season only. Therefore, now the chances are very less that fans will ever see the sequel of this action fantasy series.
What’s The Show About?
The first season of Sarazanmai follows the story of Kazuki, Toi, and Enta. They accidentally break the statue of Kappa. This statue serves as the guardian god of Asakusa. As a result, Keppi, the prince of the Kappa kingdom, transformed the three of them into kappas. They joined Keppi to collect the Dishes of Hope that can fulfill the wishes of anyone who possesses it. To acquire these Dishes, they have to collect Shirikodama of zombies. The other empires control this society by manipulating their desires.
However, these kingdoms are the sworn enemies of the Kappa kingdom. As a result, all the three boys have to defeat the zombies, and there is only one way to do it. They have to say the phrase “Sarazanmai,” but they have to be united when they say it.
Sarazanmai Season 2: Release Date
Even if the second season of this show is in the cards, it won’t premiere anytime soon. Both MAPPA and Lapin Track have their handful of projects, and it must be difficult for them to spare time for the sequel of this show. Yet, if Sarazanmai Season 2 gets the green light this year, then it might release by the end of 2023.
