Try Knights tried very hard to become one of the best rugby sports anime, but it failed. However, the series has great potential, so fans still want to see Try Knights Season 2 despite its disappointing debut installment. The technical accuracy and the intense voice acting impressed the viewers, but that wasn’t enough to save this show. So, will the anime return to improve things it did wrong in the first season? Here are all the latest details.
Try Knights is a Japanese sport (rugby) anime series. It is an adaptation of Shunsako Yano and Chizuka Erisawa’s manga series of the same title. Gonzo animation studio picked up the manga and animated the inaugural season of this series. The anime made its debut on July 31, 2019. Moreover, it ran for a total of twelve episodes before concluding on October 16 of the same year.
Try Knights Season 2: Renewal Status!
The first season of this sports anime didn’t receive a very positive reception from the fans. Whereas the critics provided it a negative response as it has a lot of flaws. Along with the storyline, the art and the animation of the anime were also bad and different from the manga series. It really disappointed the fans as they were expecting a loyal adaptation. As a result, it only has a poor score of 4.71 on MyAnimeList.
The series is not that popular either and only has 16K members in its MAL group. The only good thing for the future of the series is that the production studio still has the required source material to make Try Knights Season 2. But, due to the poor critical reception and less popularity of the anime, its second season seems very unlikely.
What’s The Show About?
The story of Try Knights revolves around a guy named Riku Hamura. He enters a new high school but without any sight of his future. He was once used to be a rugby player, and then he gave up the sport because of his physique. In the school, he saw students playing on the ground like monsters. At the same place, he saw Akira playing rugby that refreshed his memory of this sport. Suddenly Riku gave Akira a bit of advice to improve his game, and that is the moment when everything changed for him. His dying passion for rugby came back, and he decided to join the sport again.
Try Knights Season 2: Release Date
As previously mentioned, the chances for the anime’s sequel to happen are very less. But fans can still hope for a miracle to happen and for the makers to finally renew it for another season. If that happens, then fans can expect Try Knights Season 2 to release by the end of 2022 or in 2023. Until then, we can only wait for now.
