Re:Creators: Is It Possible To Create Season 2?
Those viewers who watched Re:Creators this spring apparently desire to see a sequel since the story doesn't seem complete. Some fans even expressed their own opinions how the next season might look. We've mentioned numerous times that it's not so easy to predict the future of the franchise which begins with an anime series. We mean that if a story has no base in the form of a light novel or manga, the show's creators could find themselves in the complicated situation when they don't know where to move forward.
Unfortunately, Re:Creators relates to such a kind of show, which started as it is. Nonetheless, most of you are wondering, whether or not Troyca Inc. is going to produce another installment of the anime. Let's try to figure it out together.
As mentioned above, Re:Creators anime has no roots in any light novel series or manga. As a result, there is only one primary reason to create one more season. Yes, correctly, we're talking about money. If the show's creators consider the franchise commercially successful enough, they have all the desires to film a sequel. Therefore, first of all, we must look up at the BD/DVD sales.
Well, they sell 2,000 items per week on the average. Not a bad indicator, isn't it? Additionally, it's worth noting the manga sales. They were satisfactory as well. So, in general, we could rule out this factor; more precisely, it plays in favor of renewal. However, also worth noting that we can't know for sure whether or not the Troyca studio managed to cover the expenses.
Another reason to produce another installment is that the first season of Re:Creators has received a pretty good response from the target audience. On MyAnimeList, the anime has a score of 7.68/10 ~ 50,000 votes. The viewers of Amazon Prime Video have also praised the series, given the rating of 4.3 out of 5 stars. Relying on these figures, we may conclude that the viewers are fully satisfied with this anime series.
Finally, don't forget that such a famous broadcaster as Amazon participated in the project and even served as an exclusive licensor of the series worldwide. This fact points out that Amazon is interested in continuing the franchise as well. Moreover, they initially considered this show commercially expedient, that's why the broadcaster distributed it exclusively across the globe.
Summing up, we conclude that Re:Creators has good odds of obtaining Season 2. Nonetheless, the final decision depends on Amazon to a greater extent than even Troyca Inc. So we will have to wait for the official announcement.
Re:Creators started off in April 2017 on Tokyo MX. Soon, TVA, AT-X, BS11, and other Japanese broadcasters began airing the series. Amazon served as a licensor of the anime worldwide and streamed the anime through their Prime Video Service. Troyca Inc. acted as a developer of the anime series. The first season of Re:Creators consisted of twenty-two episodes came to an end on September 16, 2017. Since then, there has been no official news about the renewal. To be sure of this, please visit the official website of the anime series.
What Is The Re:Creators Series About?
The story focuses on Souta Mizushino, a seemingly ordinary high school otaku who desires to create his own light novel. One day, Souta watched anime series for inspiration. But suddenly he found himself in the anime's world, where he has become a witness of a fight scene. Upon arrival to the real world, Souta surprisingly found out that the world has changed.
Now, various fictional characters flooded the streets of his hometown. Furthermore, Celestia Yupitilia, an anime heroine from the fight scene was somehow transferred along with him. However, it seems that one mysterious uniform girl is aware of all these strange things, as well as about the creators of this world. A storyline thereby follows the adventures of Souta, Celestia and their friends on a mission to discover the truth about all these supernatural events.
On The Subject Of The Possible Release Date For Season 2
We presented numerous factors below in an attempt to explain why we believe that Re:Creators would return for Season 2. But what about the release date? Nonetheless, in fact, there is no official confirmation of renewal as of now. However, even if the show will get its sophomore installment, we doubt that the next season premieres earlier than next spring. More likely, the premiere is scheduled for the second half of 2019, or even for the beginning of 2020. The primary and foremost problem is that this anime has no source material. This means that the show's creators have nothing to adapt. So we will have to wait until Rei Hiroe creates another story. In any case, we are waiting for the official announcement. Stay tuned for updates. We'll keep you informed on the subject.
