If you're concerned about the possibility of To the Abandoned Sacred Beasts Season 2, we have some data, which may be interesting to you. The anime premiered this summer and has received mainly positive reviews from viewers. However, there has been no official announcement of Katsute Kami Datta Kemono-tachi e Season 2 so far. In spite of this, we tend to believe that a sophomore season of the dark fantasy anime is due to happen, and below we want to explain why we think so.
No doubt, you're aware of that Katsute Kami Datta Kemono-tachi e is a television adaptation of a Japanese manga series of the same name written by Maybe. To date, the manga contains ten volumes. And the good news is that the last, 10th volume has been issued right after the premiere of the anime, on July 9, 2019. It's clear that the tenth volume couldn't thereby be included in the current installment of To the Abandoned Sacred Beasts.
As a result, we now have at least one new volume for another television adaptation. To be honest, we doubt that MAPPA Co., Ltd., the studio, which is responsible for the television adaptation of Katsute Kami Datta Kemono-tachi e managed to adapt the entire manga into a single-cour 12-episode television season. But even if so, at least one new volume remains, as mentioned above.
Also worth mentioning that To the Abandoned Sacred Beasts Season 1 has been praised by viewers, given the data by MyAnimeList. According to their statistics, the 1st round of the anime holds a score of 7.07/10 based on approx. 6,700 votes, to date. In addition, it's worth noting that on IMDb, Katsute Kami Datta Kemono-tachi e keeps a high rating of 8.0/10.
Finally, the BD/DVD version of the anime will be available in the market on Thursday, September 26, 2019. The first release limited edition will cost ¥ 9,000 + tax. Why did we mention about it? As a rule, the BD/DVD sales reflect the commercial success of the media franchise. Therefore, in case if the financial statistics of the anime series are acceptable, such data increase the odds of Katsute Kami Datta Kemono-tachi e to receive another television season.
Summing up, in our opinion, Katsute Kami Datta Kemono-tachi e Season 2 is just a matter of time. All the factors described above play in favor of renewal. As a result, all you need to do is to keep on waiting. As for us, we are tracking down the official sources on the subject of any news regarding To the Abandoned Sacred Beasts Season 2. Once any additional data emerge, we will update this page.
Katsute Kami Datta Kemono-tachi e Season 2 Release Date
Since we don't rule out the possibility of renewal, it's time to talk about the likely release date for a second season of the dark fantasy anime. Katsute Kami Datta Kemono-tachi e Season 1 consists of only twelve episodes, and therefore we assume that only five chapters of the original manga have been adapted into a television series.
In such a case, we have enough source material for Katsute Kami Datta Kemono-tachi e Season 2 right now, given the recently released 10th volume. We thereby might expect Katsute Kami Datta Kemono-tachi e Season 2 already next year, in July 2020, taking into account the current schedule of the series.
However, in the worst case scenario, if the MAPPA studio adapted all the manga chapters available to date into a 12-episode television season (unless vol. 10), the waiting could last at least three more years, up to 2023. To be honest, we doubt in such development of events. But still, if so, To the Abandoned Sacred Beasts would go on a long-term hiatus.
In any case, we are looking forward to any official news from the MAPPA studio. As soon as the studio announces Katsute Kami Datta Kemono-tachi e Season 2 or sets a specific release date for a next season, we will update this page. So guys, stay tuned for updates. We will keep you informed.
