The World’s Finest Assassin, Takt op Destiny, Muv-Luv Alternative, and Sakugan’s season finales will air on Crunchyroll.

The route for the later series, Sakugan, has been as difficult as Gagumber and Memempu’s journey together.

However, the biggest question of the fans at this moment is whether the second installment of Sakugan will be confirmed and when it will air?

Sakugan Season 2: Renewal And Release Date Explored For Anime Series

The Finale Of The Sakugan Season

  • Pacific Time: 7.30 AM PST
  • Eastern Time: 10.30 AM EST
  • British Time: 3.30 PM GMT

Has Sakugan Been Confirmed For A Second Installment?

At this moment, Studio Satelight, the production house behind the successful anime franchise, has not formally renewed Sakugan for a second season, and we remain skeptical about the show’s future.

On the other hand, the fact that the closing episode of season 1 was labeled “To Be Continued” suggests that a second television season will be made. At this moment, the narrative still has a lot of room for expansion with characters like Princess Sina and the Shibito Group.

The TV show is a rough adaptation of Nekotaro Inui’s novel “Sakugan Labyrinth Marker,” which was first published as part of the 2019 Project Anima event. While there is no sequel to the novel, the tv adaptation did not always follow the original narrative in chronological order. Director Junichi Wada told Anime Trending that they wanted the second installment to be as creative as an anime rather than a replica.

As a consequence, it is safe to believe that the first drafts of a second season have already been completed, giving fans optimism that Sakugan will return for more adventures. The only issue is that Sakugan season 1 has received mixed reviews, edging on ‘average’ after its dramatic debut on the Fall anime.

Fans of the show should be worried about the series’ current ratings of 6.83/10 on MyAnimeList and 7.1/10 on IMDB. Similarly, Sakugan did not feature on many of the top 10 anime lists for the Fall season, with one of the top comments on MAL simply remarking, “What to say about Sakugan. To not have any expectations.”

Surprisingly, the manga, which started production on August 13, 2021, is a point to ponder. If this manga continues to be incredibly successful in Japan as we approach 2022, the development of season 2 may be approved. Sakugan’s fate will likely be determined by how much of the original narrative the production team has planned, as well as the local success in Japan, given the low overseas ratings.

Unfortunately, anticipating a likely release timeframe for Sakugan season 2 is difficult due to a dearth of available information on the series’ development. The show was supposed to launch in 2020, but it was postponed until October 2021, owing to the impending coronavirus outbreak. The great news is that this may shift Season 2’s release date forward, most likely to Fall 2022.

The Storyline of Sakugan

The “Labyrinth” is a vast underground area where life exists in clusters called “colonies.” The surface has faded into obscurity over time, perhaps only imagination to those who have never witnessed its splendor.

A colony’s members may take up a range of specialized tasks to ensure mankind survives the harsh circumstances of the underworld. “Workers,” who excavate valuable ore to fuel the colonies, and “Markers,” travel into the Labyrinth’s amazingly lush surroundings to bring back data to assist navigation. However, mankind is threatened by monsters known as “kaijuu,” which vary in size from a tiny kid to a large structure and are aggressive to any human they come across. Furthermore, kaijuu that are big enough may push their way inside colonies, posing a greater hazard.

Memenpu is a nine-year-old university graduate whose discoveries have greatly benefited her neighborhood colony’s Workers. She has, however, recently dreamed of being in a place with a limitless ceiling that is not bound by bedrock. These dreams feed her ambition to become a Marker and wander the vast unknown of the Labyrinth in pursuit of a fantasy location. Despite her father, Gagumber’s vehement objections, a confrontation with the kaijuu sets a risky but exciting series of events that would alter humanity’s course forever.

Why does it seem probable that a Sakugan sequel would be based on the Sakugan Episode 12 end?

Even before hearing the director’s statement, it was clear that the anime had built on the novel’s idea. Many of the unbiased stories were episodic, and the filmmaker and all three authors were enthusiastic about the concept.

They came as grafted on after the fact since the meandering pace did not progress the primary narrative forward. As a consequence, it seemed like a long-form tale crammed inside the confines of a traditional 12-episode anime season. They did not even provide enough time to wrap up the major narrative of the book, though the first season effectively addressed the key character struggle of the first story arc.
