BNA: Brand New Animal is a show that might make you seem like a furry if you talk about it too much.
The anime takes place in a world where humans coexist with another species known as the beastmen, who can take human forms and otherwise live as half-animal and half-human.
Michiru, originally a human, suddenly transforms into a tanuki-girl or a raccoon-girl. Unfortunately for her, beastmen are not accepted by human society.
She is forced to run away to Anima, a special city that serves as the residence for the beastmen only. After unraveling the reason for her sudden transformation, Michiru realizes that there’s a bigger mess surrounding her.
BNA was a Netflix-exclusive anime produced by the renowned studio Trigger. Although there were some mixed reactions, the show received lots of love from many fans.
Season 2 of BNA is yet to receive an official release date yet.
1. Release Date
BNA premiered in July 2020 on Netflix. The show has not been greenlit for season 2 yet, but the audience’s positive response might make it happen. If the show gets renewed for another season, we can expect it to be back by the fall of 2021.
Studio Trigger is not really known for making sequels so, if the show was not funded by Netflix, another season would be improbable. However, since the anime did financially well, there is a high probability that Netflix would renew it.
Also, when Netflix comes out with exclusives, they try to make multiple seasons if the show was profitable, so there are chances that BNA will not be canceled.
2. What To Expect From Season 2
The story of BNA season 1 was pretty self-sufficient, and episode 12 could conclude the anime itself. However, the brilliant world-building in the season leaves room for many new possibilities.
Season 2 could expand more on the human-beastmen hostility situation. The anti-beastmen could become a significant threat to Anima city, and this situation could lead the story forward.
It is also revealed that Michiru and Nazuna are genetically unstable but have abilities that haven’t been revealed yet. So, if the anti-beastmen front grows, they can play a significant part in that.
BNA is an original anime television series, so we don’t have source material to have a clearer picture of season 2, and there are multiple directions that the show could take.
