Isekai anime shows have been pretty popular nowadays. Now and then, there’s another iskeai getting released, be it an anime, manga or a light novel. What makes the genre interesting is its setting and the characters.
January 8th marked the release of Plunderer, another isekai anime. The first season recently wrapped up and was able to garner a considerable fanbase. After the much-anticipated battle between aces, fans are eager to know when the second season will roll out.
Here’s everything you need to know about the anime, from its release date to the storyline of the second season and other interesting aspects.
1. Release Date of Plunderer Season 2
The production team for ‘Plunderer Season 2‘ hasn’t released any official statement regarding the new season. However, after seeing the response from the first season, it’s highly unlikely that there won’t be a second season of the anime.
According to some speculations going on, the second season is expected to release sometime in 2021, most probably in July 2021.
2. Where to watch Plunderer?
3. Theory Section
If the second season of Plunderer gets released, then it will be only of 12 episodes as the first ten volumes were adapted, and currently, there are only five volumes to adapt as of now. It might be a single cour anime and the other part will get released sometime later.
Plunderer isn’t your another generic isekai anime. The show has a unique concept of ‘counts’ which determine one’s life cycle and social status in the world they live in. Despite starting on a low-tone, the series gets better with every passing episode.
I. Financial Standings
There is no official information about the total sales of the manga, but from the popularity of the anime, the manga must be doing good in the market.
II. About the Studio
The animation studio behind the isekai anime is the lesser known ‘GeekToys.’ They have only created three anime so far; out of those three, neither of them received a follow-up for a second season.
But since ‘Plunderer‘ had an outstanding response, the possibilities of a second season are high this time.
III. The Animation
The animation is crisp and detailed. The art style stands out; it’s vibrant and colorful. Whether it be characters’ outfits or the action sequences, they all look neat. Keeping in mind that this is coming from a pretty new studio, it’s certainly fascinating.
IV. About Suu Minazuki
Suu Minazuki is widely known for his fantasy comedy manga series ‘Heaven’s Lost Property.’ He is working on the sixteenth volume of Plunderer for now. He has been consistent from his side, releasing chapters constantly; from that, we can infer that he is in good health.
V. Production Update
GeekToys, Kadokawa, or any other production team hasn’t announced anything about the second installment of Plunderer.
Currently, there are fifteen volumes in total, so there’s a chance that there might be a 12 episode single cour in the future till Suu Minazuki completes the remaining volumes.
4. Expected Storyline/Plot for Season 2
The first season of Plunderer threw light on issues of societies and its segregations, reservations based on cast and the corrupted social hierarchy.
While delving on similar issues, Season 2 will kickstart with Licht, Hina, and others discreetly infiltrating the royal capital in search of the original ballots to see whether there are other aces or not. Meanwhile, Hina couldn’t shake off the idea of Schumelmann Bach being an unkind person to her and Licht. At the same time, the royal capital is facing a conspiracy of its own; if they don’t resolve it quickly, they will find themselves at war with the Abyss.
The next season will take a darker route and Schumelmann’s tragic backstory will be revealed. The capital is in chaos, and Licht is dressed as an ugly woman. If adapted correctly, this season might turn out to be one of the best.
5. Key Visual
There is no key visual released yet, but the second season will adapt from Volume 10.
There is no teaser/trailer for the second season released yet. As soon as it drops, we will update this section.
