What is the plotline of 7 Seeds?
In the near future, a giant meteorite collided with the earth. All living organisms, including humans, were wiped out from the planet. Anticipating this outcome, the government took measures against the worst-case scenario. Specifically, it was “Project 7SEEDS”, where five sets of seven young men and women were carefully selected and placed in teams (Spring, Summer A, Summer B, Autumn, and Winter). Each participant was then put into cryogenic sleep in the hope of preserving humanity’s continued existence.
When these men and women woke up, they suddenly thrust themselves into a brutal world. They tried to find ways to survive while being loved forever and grieving for their loss. 7 Seeds tells the story of a group of young people who find themselves at the end of the world when they wake up. Shy Natsu and the others embark on a fierce struggle to find a way to survive in a changing world.
Will there be a season 3 of 7 Seeds?
The last update on February 12, 2021: At the time of writing, neither Netflix nor Studio Kai has yet to renew the series for season 3 yet. We are monitoring the news for you. When the confirmation arrives, we will share it with you, but we can make some predictions. There are some main criteria for anime to get a new season approval. These are the manga they use as source material and their popularity.
When is the release date of 7 Seeds?
The first season of the series was announced in November 2018 and was broadcast on Netflix in June 2019. The second season confirmation came in October 2019, and the new season was released in March 2020. With similar logic, we can expect renewal from Netflix soon. Based on our analysis, the third season of the series will be on the screens in the summer of 2021.
Manga status of the anime
7 Seeds is the anime adaptation of Japanese manga written by Yumi Tamura, as we mentioned earlier. The manga began airing on Bessatsu Shōjo Comic in 2001. Short broadcasting life for 1 year then continued for years at Flowers. Published for 16 years in total, the manga consists of 35 volumes in total. The story is currently complete, and the manga is not ongoing.
On the other hand, the anime quickly consumed the chapters of the manga in the first season and covered 16 volumes. Fortunately, in the second season, the story got deeper, and only 4 volumes were used. In total, the anime covers 20 volumes of the manga. There are 15 volumes left. So, in summary, we can say that the series has enough source material for one or two seasons. It’s about how fast the story will progress in the possible third season.
Popularity and other factors
Disc sales are also very important for anime companies. However, 7 SEEDS ‘disc sales were not made. Netflix has acquired the series’s streaming rights, and the upcoming new season confirmation is directly linked to how long Netflix users watch the anime. Although the series was broadcast on the Netflix platform and received the second season’s approval, it is still not famous worldwide. The absence of Crunchyroll distributorship may also affect this because anime enthusiasts do not usually adopt Netflix as a platform. However, different viewer profiles found the opportunity to follow the anime closely. We think the series will get the third season’s approval after the second season’s approval.
