After a fabulous season 1 and an equally heart-fluttering movie, Tsurune is ready to awe us with its second season. While Minato and Shu’s friendship and rivalry was entertained in the first two installments, it’s time for them to face some more competition.
You guessed it right, a new character will be introduced in season 2, and it is a known face for the Kirisaki High trio.
Season 2 of Tsurune, titled Tsurune: The Connecting Arrow, will be released in January 2023. It is likely to be streamed by Crunchyroll once it airs.
The latest trailer for the upcoming season shows the new character, Eisuke:
The trailer shows glimpses of Minato, Shu and Seiya. You can also see Eisuke zooming into a picture of the protagonists. Eisuke is the trio’s senpai from their middle school days, but they went their own ways after some time.
It looks like it is finally time for their reunion. Eisuke is in the kyudo club of Tsujimine High School. Will they meet at an upcoming competition?
It looks like season 2 of Tsurune will be off to a wild start. Not only are the issues between Seiya and Shu unresolved, but there will also be another factor that might disrupt the already scarce peace.
Let’s just hope that Minato’s target panic doesn’t return again after discords arise between his friends.
Tsurune The Movie: The First Arrow premiered on August 19 in Japan and served as a lovely prequel to season 1. Now, it’s time to move forward with the actual plot and see how KyoAni maintains the utopian animation quality.
Tsurune is a light novel by Kotoko Ayano which was adapted into an anime series by Kyoto Animation in 2018. As of 2022, three volumes have been published under Kyoto Animation’s KA Esuma Bunko imprint.
The plot revolves around Minato, a high schooler who has grown up loving archery but developed a sudden target panic. Yet, he is recruited into an archery club in high school and along with his team and instructor finds the true meaning behind his passion.
