For years and years, fans of the shoujo anime have been hearing rumors about the cancelation of The World Is Still Beautiful Season 2. The first season won many hearts during its broadcast back in 2014. After six-long-years, viewers need to know whether their favorite show will ever hit the screens again. What’s in the future of Soredemo Sekai wa Utsukushii? Can fans save the sequel? Hence, here’s everything you need to know.
Soredemo Sekai wa Utsukushii, popularly known as The World Is Still Beautiful, debuted as a manga series back in 2012. Written and illustrated by Dai Shiina, the manga serialized in Hakusensha’s shoujo manga magazine Hana to Yume for 25 volumes. In 2014, Studio Pierrot picked up the story for a twelve-episode anime adaptation. The television series received much critical acclaim and love from fans.
The World Is Still Beautiful Season 2: Renewed Or Canceled?
The first season of the shoujo anime opened up to positive critical during its first broadcast. It did not do much business internationally, yet it still has a major fan-following. Over the years, the demand for a second season seems to be increasing. However, Studio Pierrot or any other companies involved in the anime’s production have not renewed Soredemo Sekai wa Utsukushii Season 2 yet.
On the other hand, not that the Soredemo Sekai wa Utsukushii manga has ended, chances for the anime’s renewal have automatically decreased. Unlike original anime, adaptations are produced only to act as mere advertisements of their source material. Hence, they only survive as long as they have content to promote. Sadly, mangaka Dai Shiina wrapped up her acclaimed manga series with the last three chapters in April 2020. This threatens the future of The World Is Still Beautiful Season 2.
Is There Still Any Hope For A Sequel?
Can fans save it from cancelation?
While the end of Soredemo Sekai wa Utsukushii manga decreases the chance of its anime’s return, there is hope for a new season as long as fans demand it. In today’s world, fans hold quite a lot of power over the renewal of a show. Hence, if enough people sign petitions in support of The World Is Still Beautiful Season 2, they might be able to save it. Until then, we will all have to patiently wait for Studio Pierrot to renew the show. Keep an eye on this corner for all future updates.
The World Is Still Beautiful Season 2 Release Date
Since Soredemo Sekai wa Utsukushii Season 2 is yet to get an official renewal, it’s currently hard to predict a release date. It won’t be easy for fans to convince the studio to pick up the sequel, and it might take a lot of time too. Well, even if they renew it sooner this year, the new episodes may not premiere anytime earlier than mid to late-2022. We will update this article as soon as Pierrot announces the release date.
