If you found A Certain Scientific Accelerator, the supernatural anime, which premiered this summer interesting enough, you're likely trying to figure out whether there will be a Season 2. We experience mixed feelings, while talking about the possibility of renewal. Besides, there has been no official announcement of Toaru Kagaku no Accelerator Season 2. But still, there are some points that play in favor of renewal as well as those that point out cancelation, and below we want to pay your attention at some of them.
The bad news is that the original manga series of the same name, which served as a source material for Toaru Kagaku no Accelerator is not currently serializing. The manga consists of nine volumes to date, and the last one was issued last year, on October 11, 2018. Since then, there have been no new volumes published. On the other hand, it doesn't mean that the manga is completed, it could be a hiatus on the contrary, isn't it?
A Certain Scientific Accelerator Season 1 consists of twelve episodes, and it's unclear so far how many chapters of the original manga were included in the television adaptation. Therefore, if the current television season covers all the volumes of the Toaru Kagaku no Accelerator manga series, we doubt that we might see A Certain Scientific Accelerator Season 2 someday.
However, if there remains a piece of source material, we still have a chance for Toaru Kagaku no Accelerator Season 2. In addition, it's worth mentioning that there are four more chapters that haven't been included in volume format, not to mention a spin-off manga, which consists of four additional volumes.
That's why our vision on the future of Toaru Kagaku no Accelerator Season 2 is doubtful. If we had the current manga serializing, we might say more exact data on the subject of renewal, yet since it's suspended, we wouldn't be so sure. But still, Toaru Kagaku no Accelerator Season 1 is on the air, and we, in any case, should wait until it's ended to evaluate the odds.
Another key factor, which, as a rule, plays in favor of renewal is a reception, which the anime series receives from viewers. A Certain Scientific Accelerator Season 1 has received mainly favorable reviews, talking about the target audience, given the data presented by MyAnimeList. In accordance to their metrics, the current installment of Toaru Kagaku no Accelerator holds a score of 7.54/10 based on approx. 3,000 votes.
Summing up, there are, as a rule, three key factors capable of affecting the decision on renewal. We are talking about the availability of source material, response from critics and viewers, and commercial value of the media franchise. In case with Toaru Kagaku no Accelerator, it's unclear to date whether there is enough source material. Meanwhile, the response looks above average.
Finally, talking about the BD/DVD sales, the Blu-ray is scheduled to be released on Wednesday, October 30, 2019. Once we have some commercial statistics of the media franchise, we might extend our forecast.
In any case guys, we have to wait for the official announcement. Don't believe anyone that Toaru Kagaku no Accelerator Season 2 is confirmed until this media outlet provides a link to the official source. As soon as we have some certain data from the official Japanese source, we will update this page.
Toaru Kagaku no Accelerator Season 2 Release Date
As mentioned above, we see the future of Toaru Kagaku no Accelerator Season 2 doubtful, however, we don't rule out the possibility of another television season completely. Thus, in case of renewal, there are two possible scenarios when will we see A Certain Scientific Accelerator Season 2.
If the current television adaptation doesn't cover the manga source completely, which is quite possible, taking into account the single-cour adaptation, we might expect Toaru Kagaku no Accelerator Season 2 next summer, in July 2020, given the current schedule of the series. In the worst case scenario, we will have to wait until the source material for a second season is ready, and such period may last longer.
Since we want you to know only reliable data on the subject, we are tracking down the official Japanese sources relating the possibility of renewal as well as a specific release date. As soon as any certain data about Toaru Kagaku no Accelerator Season 2 emerge, we will update this page. So guys, stay tuned for updates. We will keep you informed.
