Plunderer Season 2 Release Date, Everything you need to know

Plunderer is a popular anime series in the action-fantasy genre, which first appeared in the spring of 2020 with its anime. The anime is adapted from the manga series written by Suu Minazuki and has been published by Kadokawa since 2014. The anime, which first met with the audience on local Japanese networks on January 8, 2020, is also one of the anime licensed by Funimation. Plunderer, which gained viewers from all over the world thanks to Funimation and Hulu TV, was animated by the Geek Toys studio, which we know with the Hensuki anime series. After the first season, which consists of 24 episodes in total, the audience is now wondering about the fate of the second season of the series. So has the anime been renewed for a second season?

What is the plotline of Plunderer?

At our age, we are all running after likes on social media! Even the interactions we receive can sometimes even get ahead of us! So, where will this trend lead? Everyone has a number one in Plunderer’s world. This trick is like the sum of all the actions we’ve done throughout our lives that give us plus points! If we do not collect new points over time, our existing points are deleted one by one, and we fall to zero. Zeroing for a long time is the same as dying! When her mother’s score is considered, Hina sets out to search for the Red Baron at her request. Litch, whom he met during his journey, also has a very low score, and he is looking for the Red Baron. It is so fun to follow the fantastic adventure of this forced duo closely. This fun adventure is expected to continue in the second season. The series’s entry story is very similar to the first episode of season 3 of the Black Mirror series published on Netflix.

Is the series renewed for a second season?

As of November 18, 2021, at the time of writing, Geek Toys studio or any related company with the anime has not yet renewed the series for a second season. However, we don’t want to drag fans into pessimism. This is an ordinary situation for anime series. As there has been no official announcement about the second season of the anime so far, we have speculated about the second season. There are some parameters to assess whether the series will have a second season. One of the most important is whether the source material is sufficient for a second season of the series and the other one is popularity.

Manga

The Plunderer anime is an adaptation of the manga written and illustrated by Suu Minazuki. The manga, published in Monthly Shōnen Ace magazine, like most famous manga, began its publication life in December 2014. Plunderer manga consists of 19 volumes in total as of November 2021 and the last volume was published on October 26, 2021. There are 77 chapters in total, with the chapters that are not in tankobon format yet.

So, how many of them are adapted into anime’s first season? The answer to this question is 38 chapters. The anime’s first season covers up to volume 10, chapter 38. The remaining stock material is 39 chapters in total. There is currently as much source material available as was adapted in the anime’s first season. In this case, we can say that manga provides sufficient source material to create a new season. However, since enough source material has just been completed, it will take time to adapt it to the anime, even if the series is renewed.

The popularity of the anime

When the series was first released, it was unheard of worldwide, but continued to be watched afterward. Recently, we see that the anime has strong search popularity on Google worldwide. Anime, on the other hand, is currently ranked 586th on the Myanimelist popularity ranking. However, in disc sales, which is an important financial data, the anime only sold around 200 copies in its first volume sales, and this is really far below what was expected. (In general, it is expected to be at least 3,000 – 4,000)

However, it should be taken into account that disc sales have generally decreased in recent years with changing habits. Finally, when we look at the Twitter account to see the popularity of anime in Japan, we see that 16k people follow. This is not very good considering the worldwide popularity. In general, we observe that over 100k people follow the animes that have been approved for the new season in Japan.

When is the second season of Plunderer?

As of November 2021, the anime has not yet been renewed for a second season. We speculated above about the second season of the anime and talked about the possibilities for renewal. At the moment, the manga has enough source material, and it has above-average popularity worldwide. However, the anime isn’t very popular in Japan, and it didn’t do well in disc sales. Although we have some concerns, we see the light for a new season. If the anime is renewed soon, the average production time will be about a year. In this case, it is not possible to see a new season before 2023 – 2024. Stay tuned.
