The new anime Japan Sinks 2020, prepared by Japanese animation studio Science Saru, has completed its first season. This survival drama anime was broadcast on Netflix and found audiences from all over the world. Season 2 of the anime, which is published as ten episodes in total, is curious. Will there be a season 2 of Japan Sinks 2020? When will it air on Netflix?
Tokyo Magnitude 8.0, an old anime, was the first appearance in Japan Sinks 2020. The anime, which has the same style and is about the earthquake, contains heavy drama. The anime, published on Netflix, was adapted from a book of the same name in 1973. Ho Pyeon-Gang & Masaaki Yuasa direct the anime series.

What is the plot line of Japan Sinks: 2020?
The anime revolves around Ayumu Muto, whose mother is Filipino and his father is Japanese. He is a runner, and as he is about to return from school, a major earthquake occurs that will change everyone’s lives, and most of them extinguish. The quake was so severe that many houses and roads were destroyed. Moreover, this will be the beginning of the end because earthquakes will not cease, and the underground plates of the huge Japanese continent have been displaced. This means that the country is buried in the ocean. Ayumu and his brother Go, along with the other survivors, are hunting to save their hellish lives.
The bad character of Japan Sinks 2020 is natural disasters. We do not see bad enemies or unusual creatures in the series. The anime moves at a general pace and deals with ordinary people’s search for salvation. In this respect, it does its job properly. Apart from that, the anime makes him watch without getting bored.
Its drawings are similar to the anime Devilman Crybaby. It is worth noting that there are even two series Science Saru. When the characters are sad or scared, they get so ugly, and this kind of scene was also present in Devilman Crybaby. The background art and effects are also above average anime.
Japan Sinks 2020 has handled natural disasters well. It’s not too action-packed, nor does it contain violence or excessive drama. Anime is talking about only a small group’s survival goal. There are minor disadvantages, but it is a quality anime, enjoyable to watch when we look at the whole.
When will Japan Sinks: 2020 Season 2 release on Netflix?
At the time of this writing, there was no renewal from Netflix for Season 2. When we follow the producers closely, we cannot catch a clue about Season 2. We want to share our own opinion on this issue due to the lack of official explanation. As the name suggests, Japan Sinks 2020 was the only seasonal anime referring to the current year. The fact that the series ended with a beautiful finale and the lack of resources also reduces the new season’s possibility.
As we mentioned before, creators adapted the series from the book of the same name, and the book doesn’t contain enough material for Season 2, and it’s very difficult to come up with a sequel. However, when it comes to Netflix and Anime, we may have some surprises. If enough material is provided for a second season, we may see a new season in the summer of 2021, but this is very unlikely that we do not expect.
What will be the plotline of possible season 2?
In a possible second season of the series, our bad character will be natural disasters again, maybe not an earthquake, but we may be watching a different natural disaster. Also, we can witness the struggle of our characters in the drama series.
