Akame Ga Kill Season 2: Will the show ever comeback? – Recent News

A story painstakingly illustrating the shift in human motivations once pushed against reality, they don’t want ubiquitous in their world, with some blood and gore, undoubtedly deserves some accolades. Akame ga Kill or Akame ga Kiru is one such anime that deals with these topics in a dark fantasy-specific framework. Even though it diverged significantly from its source material, the anime managed to capture the hearts and minds of many viewers.

The anime television series was directed by Tomoki Kobayashi and was produced under the aegis of Square Enix. Makoto Uezu penned the lyrics, and Taku Iwasaki provided the music.

The first season of the anime was aired on July 7, 2014, and got concluded on December 15, 2015.

The Anime Akame Ga Kill Season 2 Has been Officially Cancelled and there won’t be any additional season of the show anytime near.
The anime has been off the air for a long time, and because of its enormous popularity, many viewers began to wonder if a second season was in the works. To begin, I’d like to point out that the manufacturers have made no formal announcements or even the slightest imitation of one thus far, and it’s unlikely that they will do so any time soon.
The real question now is: Is there a chance for a sequel to this anime?

There will be no more installments of Akame Ga Kill, as its creators haven’t provided any updates since the series’ final episode aired over seven years ago.

Because of the date it ended broadcasting, you should have guessed that they would have continued the anime already, and your instincts were correct in this case. Most of the time, anime doesn’t continue when they have exceeded a specific time.

Manga Vs Anime

The anime also strayed from the manga’s intended course after only adapting the first eight volumes of the latter and concluding according to its own set of rules. As a result, the show was already nearing its climax even before the manga was completed. We may deduce from this fact that the producers would have to come up with an entirely new plot to proceed with the season renewal, which is quite unlikely.


The third factor by which we may measure the show’s future prognosis is its popularity.
The program on its course of 1 season gathered a loyal fan following and has an IMBD and MyAnimeList rating of 7.8 and 7.5 respectively, which is fairly outstanding. However, the popularity inside Japan was dismal as it was only able to sell 2,150 units. To put this amount into context, to obtain an assured season renewal a program must be able to hold more than 4000 units from its disc sales. Sales of the manga were also disappointing.

To conclude, the anime is less likely to make its debut again but looking at it from an optimistic perspective there will always be a place for possibilities until we hear something that is beyond a reasonable doubt. However, we’d prefer to wrap things out in a nice way. Hinowa Ga Crush, a type of prequel to the first season, is available for reading.

Availability of Primary Sources

The show is based on Takahiro and Tetsuya Tashiro’s manga series of the same name. From March 20, 2010, to December 22, 2016, the show was on the air.
Takahiro originally intended for Night Raid to be an all-girl band, with a boy as the protagonist. However, due to some unknown complications, it turned out the way it is today. After the first manga series was published, a prequel called Akame ga Kills: zero was released.

The plot revolves around Tatsumi, a young boy who was forced to live in his hometown and relocate to a bigger city to establish a fair livelihood for himself, along with his two pals. They become separated, however, as a bandit attack occurs.

The setting where all of this is happening is run by a prime minister who lacks any probity whatsoever. In his regime, corruption, injustice, suppression are endemic. Night Raid, a band of assassins swear to get rid of the prime minister and therefore set the town right. They are eventually joined by Tatsumi himself, who often have conflicting ideas as they manage to learn their ways and set the world on the correct track again.
