Will A.I.C.O.: Incarnation Return For Season 2 on Netflix?
Netflix expands its library by a dozen new anime series this year. A.I.C.O.: Incarnation is another project by Bones premiered at the beginning of March on Netflix. The first season of this web series consists of twelve episodes. Therefore, those viewers who ended watching A.I.C.O.: Incarnation are likely wondering whether there will be a next season of the anime? Netflix has yet to define the future of this show. However, we could estimate the odds of A.I.C.O.: Incarnation to return for Season 2. However, we could estimate the odds of A.I.C.O.: Incarnation to be back for Season 2. In a nutshell, we are almost confident that the verdict by Netflix would be positive. If you want details, read our small study to find out why we think so.
First, if you have already acquainted with our other articles, you aware of the fact that Netflix was going to spend about $8 billion this year to order more original content for their subscribers. But the most notable is that the global broadcaster was intending to use the sufficient amount of this sum to acquire more anime series. It looks like Netflix is quite serious about such kind of web series in its library. We assume thereby that the broadcaster inked many long-term deals with various famous Japanese studios that produce the anime. As a result, we tend to believe that almost every new anime at Netflix would eventually get a new season. Of course, this statement is too doubtful to be a truth. But you'll see the confirmation over time.
Further, we'd like to pay your attention to the response which A.I.C.O.: Incarnation has received from the target audience. Let's take a look at some figures. According to MyAnimeList, A.I.C.O.: Incarnation holds a score of 7.19/10 > 1,300 votes. On IMDb, this anime has a rating of 7.2/10. Finally, the viewers of Netflix were entirely satisfied while watching this web series. Without a doubt, Netflix would have to take these data into account.
Lastly, in the case of Bones, this studio, as a rule, renews such anime series, which managed to gain success among the viewers. Therefore, even if A.I.C.O.: Incarnation is not broadcast on Netflix, this anime anyway would have had a chance for another round at any Japanese television network. The point is that any Japanese studio estimates the local and international BD/DVD sales of an anime series before their decision on renewal or cancellation. A.I.C.O.: Incarnation thereby has excellent potential for sales overseas since it is broadcast on Netflix. But also worth noting that the original manga consists of just one volume. As a result, in the case of renewal, Bones could face the issue of lack of the source material for another television adaptation. On the other hand, Netflix position A.I.C.O.: Incarnation as the original scripted series. We think thus that Netflix might nudge Yuuichi Nomura to write more of the story.
Summing up, A.I.C.O.: Incarnation has a good chance for another season on Netflix. This anime is one of those freshmen in the current Netflix schedule (as well as a part of $8B investments); the reception by the viewers was mostly excellent; we foresee the successful international sales of the web series. Our verdict, thereby is that Netflix is most likely about to pick up A.I.C.O.: Incarnation for Season 2.
A.I.C.O.: Incarnation kicked off on March 9, 2018, on Netflix. The studio Bones served as a developer of the television adaptation. Kazuya Murata acted as a director of the anime. The sci-fi web series is available globally exclusively on Netflix.
A.I.C.O.: Incarnation Summary
If you have not yet watched this bio sci-fi action anime on Netflix, please read a brief overview of A.I.C.O.: Incarnation below.
Set in the foreseeable future in Japan, the anime depicts the events that happened after an accident known as the "Burst." The accident occurred during a research project, which, as a result, triggered the appearance of artificial life form called "Matter." This substance had eventually spread across the Kurobe Gorge. In order to prevent the further spreading of the Matter, the government opted to cordon that area.
The story focuses on Aiko Tachibana, a 15-year-old girl whose family died as a result of the Burst. One day she encounters a new student, Yuya Kanzaki, at her school, who reveals something incredible about her body, as well as how she relates to a ground zero that was the center of the Burst. Aiko thus decided to get into the restricted area, assisted by a team of divers led by Yuya.
On The Likely Premiere Date For Season 2 of A.I.C.O.: Incarnation
As mentioned above, we are inclined to believe that A.I.C.O.: Incarnation has a chance to return to Netflix for Season 2. But the broadcaster has yet to announce their further plans on the anime. Nonetheless, in the case of renewal, A.I.C.O.: Incarnation Season 2 would happen not earlier than next spring. The premiere could take place in March 2019, given the current schedule of the series. In any case, Bones would have to have at least one year to produce one more season of A.I.C.O.: Incarnation.
Therefore, we doubt that the premiere might happen earlier. However, please bear in mind that all the data above is just our small study and forecast on the subject of the future of the anime. Anyway, we are looking forward to the official announcement by Netflix on their decision about A.I.C.O.: Incarnation. So stay tuned for updates.
