Cannon Busters is an anime series that first appeared in 2019. It would not be right to call it an anime since it is an American animated series and does not has an exact anime style. Still, we keep the series on our anime list because it was animated by a Japanese studio and adapted from a comic book like a manga. Cannon Busters is based on a popular comic book that was first released in 2015. Netflix‘s original production is about the adventures of SAM, a friendship robot, who is looking for her lost friend. The robot is accompanied by a fugitive and a sensational pink Cadillac on its journey. Satelight and Yumeta Company are jointly animating the series. We also know the Satelight studio with Log Horizon, which has previously received many new season approvals. The adaptation of the series to anime took place after a long period. LeSean Thomas, the comic book’s author, is the leading actor in this event, which can be called a success story. In 2014, he raised $156,000 with the fund he initiated on Kickstarter, enabling the series to turn into an anime. Latterly, fans are still researching for a second season after more than three years. So, has Netflix renewed Cannon Busters for a second season?
The comic book, which is the series’s written source, did not manage to be very long. The magazine, which was able to issue 3 issues in total, then continued as an anime, with improvements on story basics. Of course, there are about 15 years in between. It would not be right to call the series a manga adaptation right now. A new script is required directly for this Netflix original production. For this reason, it does not mean much whether there are enough written sources for the second season.
As of September 4, 2022, at the time of writing, Netflix has not yet renewed the series for the second season. So fans should keep it on the agenda and recommend it to their friends in order to see a new season of the show.
LeSean Thomas, the creator of the animation series, is currently one of the key persons behind the new season decision. However, L. Thomas seems to have turned his focus to the Yasuke series which is also aired on Netflix on April 29, 2021. The animation he created, Yasuke, was animated by the famous anime studio MAPPA (the studio of Attack on Titan 4th Season, Jujutsu Kaisen) and is currently more popular than Cannon Busters. If there is a renewal, we think it will be primarily for Yasuke.
It’s still good news that there hasn’t been a cancellation yet. Considering production time, with possible renewal, a new season of the series may meet with the audience around 2024. This is the earliest possible date because the series’s production is not like other anime, and it takes more than a year. We can see that the pilot episode was in 2016, but the series was coming out in 2019. Things will be relatively faster. However, a new season is quite unlikely currently.
What is expected from season two of Cannon Busters?
Kelby has been kidnapped, and SAM and her gang have been unable to save him. SAM and her quest to reunite with Kelby will cause her to face even more dangerous foes as Kelby is on his way to the Mystic Emporer. SAM has only just realized that she’s actually a Cannon Buster, so expect to see her in this mode as more fearsome enemies appear. On the other hand, Philly is enraged that Bessie was killed in her fight against the Mystic Emporer’s minions. Without a car to cross Gerabolt, the journey will take much longer. However, it is possible for Bessie to reassemble or buy a new car. However, the evil Mystic Emperor will need to be taken care of at the end of the journey.
