What is the plotline of No Guns Life?
Produced by Madhouse, one of the long-established anime studios, No Guns Life takes place in the near future and in a world dominated by the cyberpunk theme. In this world, people have turned into cyborgs called “Extended”. Some of them have been “overextended” by metalizing their entire body, including an arm, some legs, and some head. The Extended bout has become widespread among the local people, especially after the so-called great war. However, most of the extended who appeared in this war had to get involved in crime in order to survive. Having a huge revolver head and one of the most effective weapons of the great war that ended, Juzo Inui is the main character of the anime and tries to solve the problems of Extendeds and acts as a kind of mediation. Throughout the anime, Juzo’s experiences and experiences with Tetsuro are presented to us.
As a style, a nostalgic air is created in No Guns Life. In other words, although it is cyberpunk, it resembles old animes such as Trigun, especially in terms of its drawings. It shows itself from the opening piece. It is as if we are entering the sci-fi anime of the nineties. The anime series, which preserves this atmosphere in the second season, will likely give the same taste in season 3.
Will there be a third season of the series?
The anime has not yet been renewed for a third season. Anime studio is working on the manga adaptation of The Vampire Dies in No Time for 2021. Funimation or anime studio Madhouse didn’t mention any developments for season 3. We can make some predictions for the third season.
Is the source material enough for a third season?
As we mentioned before, the series is an adaptation of the manga series written by Tasuku Karasuma. The manga, which started to be published in the Ultra Jump magazine, has been published since 2014. The good news is that the manga is still going on. At the time of writing, the last volume was released on September 18, 2020, and consists of 11 volumes in total.
Anime lovers know the connection between anime and manga. Manga is the main source material of the anime, and there are no scripts other than No Guns Life’s manga to continue the anime’s story. Anime’s two-season covers 40 chapters of the manga. This chapter corresponds to the second chapter of volume 7. Considering that the manga has 11 volumes in total, there is enough source material for a new season. However, the first and second seasons of the series were prepared as a single linked season and were planned to be broadcast three months apart. However, due to Covid19, this period was extended to 6 months. In other words, the studio can still consider 24 episodes for a new season. In this case, the source material is insufficient, but the manga is ongoing as we mentioned.
When is the release date?
The anime’s rating score is 65.6%, according to our metrics. This popularity is critical for a third season, but not impossible. With a simple account from the manga situation, if the series will prepare for a new season of 24 episodes, the release date for No Guns Life season 3 will not be earlier than 2022.
