Netflix and LeSean Thomas’s Yasuke anime has received praise from critics and anime lovers. It really is a one of a kind anime and a remarkable addition to the samurai genre.
However, season 1 was only six episodes long, and fans are now eager to know if there will be a second season. Not to worry, because hints have already been dropped about the anime’s next step!
Yasuke, the warrior hero’s next adventure is awaited by fans all around the world.
Just after the premiere of Season 1, the producer and music composer of the series, Flying Lotus, announced that there are big plans for Yasuke.
Season 1 of the anime had six episodes with an average run time of 30 minutes.
With Flying Lotus’ recent tweet, fans expect Season 2 to premiere soon with even more episodes.
However, neither Netflix nor the production studio, MAPPA, have confirmed anything officially.
Unlike most traditional samurai anime, Yasuke is based on a real samurai. Yasuke was the first black samurai ever recorded in Japanese history. And Academy Award-nominated actor, LaKeith Stanfield, is the English voice actor for the loyal samurai.
The series has been praised for its unique take on Japanese Feudalism with the incorporation of magic and modern technology. The music in the anime, composed by Flying Lotus, is perfect for this setting.
The global audience has also appreciated the blend of African and Japanese cultures as presented in the series.
Will we see a live-action adaptation of the anime? Or is there a bigger season 2 under production? We will find out soon!
Set during a war-torn feudal Japan with mechs and magic, Yasuke is charged with the task of protecting a mysterious child who’s threatened by dark forces.
He struggles to take care of a peaceful existence after a past life of violence.
But when an area village becomes the centre of social upheaval between warring daimyo, Yasuke must take up his sword and transport a mysterious child who is the target of dark forces and bloodthirsty warlords.
