BNA: Brand New Animal, created by the Japanese animation studio Studio Trigger, has completed its first season. The series, broadcast by Netflix, met with the audience on April 8, 2020, with the episode “Runaway Raccoon”. After 12 episodes aired, it completed its first season with the episode “Anima-City”. Fans wonder about the series’ season 2 renewal status, whether it will be a new season, and other details.
The anime series, directed by Yoh Yoshinari, comes from Kazuki Nakashima’s pen. The script, specially prepared for the anime, was later turned into a manga and a light novel. Unless we are used to it, it doesn’t get the anime script from manga or novel. On the other hand, the series BNA was one of the best anime series released in 2020 on Netflix.

What is the plotline of the anime: BNA?
The story takes place in the 21st century. It is based on a period in which anthropomorphic (such as human) animals that have never been seen in the world before, called Beastmen, came to light. Michiru Kagemori, an ordinary high school student, suddenly turns into a tanuki Beastman one day. A high school student in trouble with monster hunters travels to the city of Anima.
The city of Anima is a place where creatures like themselves can live in peace. Michiru, who meets the wolf Beastman named Shirou Ogami, wants to uncover this transformation’s secret. The two young people begin to investigate the mystery behind this sudden event and even the deep secrets that lie behind the city’s origin.
Will there be a 2nd season of BNA? When will it air?
- Last update on November 21, 2020: Netflix has not yet renewed the series for a second season. However, there is no cancellation yet. It was one of the most successful series of the year. Expectations are still that there will be a second season.
It is not known if the studio is currently working on a sequel. There is no information they have published on this subject yet. Although some people liked the series quite a lot, everything is moving on finance. It seems that there are not many open topics left about the script right now. If the script is expanded, there may be a continuation light for the series, but the priority is not the scenario but the financial reasons. For this reason, eyes have turned to a statement that can come from Netflix.
The fact that there has not been a cancellation announcement from Netflix so far increases the chances of seeing the series’s second season. Considering that it takes one year to prepare an average anime series, we think we can see a possible second season of the series towards the end of 2021.
