What is the Plotline of In/Spectre Season 2?
The spirit world has a great place in Japanese culture. This fantastic effect, which is frequently found in the country’s culture, appears in many anime productions. In ‘In/Specter’, we watched the story of Kotoko Iwanaga, a highly talented psychic who was able to communicate with the spirit world. The young and beautiful psychic falls in love with handsome Kurou Sakuragawa, who recently left her boyfriend. Realizing that she has extraordinary powers as he gets closer to Kurou, Kotoko begins to solve mysterious events in the spirit world with the man he falls in love with. The fantastic adventures of the two and the unnamed feelings between them make In / Specter quite enjoyable. Those who want to watch both fantastic and romantic anime shouldn’t miss it.
Kotoko and Kuro officially started dating the last time we watched the series. The long un-named relationship eventually became clear. On the other hand, Rikka Sakuragawa, on the other hand, still poses a huge threat. No trace of Rikka has been found yet, they can discover traces of Rikka in the second season, we will see many mysteries and adventures again in the second season of the series.
Is the anime renewed for a second season, when will it air?
About a year has passed, but “In/Specter” is still not renewed for a second season. There is no news about the second season on the official website of the series as well. The news may be bad at this point, but it’s commonplace in the anime world. There is also no cancellation for the second season of the series. There are many parameters to evaluate whether the anime will have a second season.
As we mentioned earlier, In / Specter is a manga adaptation. The manga, written by Kyo Shirodaira, began publishing in 2011. It was last released on August 25, 2020. The manga, which is published in 12 volumes in total, continues to be updated. Besides, the manga’s Blue-Ray sales continue. At this point, a second season can be used as an advertising tool to support the Blue-Ray sales of the series.
Does manga provide enough resources for 2nd season of anime?
The answer to the question is yes, the first season of the anime series includes six volumes of the manga. This means that the remaining six volumes can be used for a second season. In this respect, there is a high probability of a second season of the series. The most crucial criterion for the continuity of anime is manga competence.
Popularity and rating
The series has its base fan base, but it does not seem to reflect its popularity in the manga to the anime. The series currently has a slightly below-average score of 6.7 on IMDb and was rated by only 430 people. Despite this, anime is a product of Brain’s Base, which is not a very large studio. The anime studio’s most popular product in the last five years seems to be In / Specter. The studio is also currently working on another manga adaptation called “To Your Eternity” and this anime will be released in April 2021. In general, this studio, which prepares Blue-Ray supportive anime adaptations, has not renewed any anime for the second season in the last five years.
After all these evaluations, we are not very hopeful for the second season, but considering the manga proficiency, we are fifty and fifty percent. If it comes to renewal, we can see a new season of the series at the end of 2021.
