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 the 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?
The last update on February 7, 2021: At the time of writing, Geek Toys studio or any related company with the anime has not renewed the series for a second season yet. However, we don’t want to drag fans into pessimism. This is commonplace for anime. We often do not know when animations will be renewed. We can see a renewal in the coming days. 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 Status of Plunderer
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 17 volumes in total at the time of writing. The last volume was published on January 26, 2021. There are 69 chapters in total, with the chapters that are not in tankobon format yet.
So, how many of them are adapted to anime? The answer to this question is 38 chapters. The anime’s first season covers Volume 10, Chapter 38. The remaining stock material is 31 chapters in total. There is currently not enough source material for the second season of 24 episodes. According to a leak, the second season of the series will consist of 12 episodes instead of 24 episodes. In this case, we can say that manga provides sufficient resources.
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 increased in Google searches for the second season. When we look at the popularity, it is 75.9%. This score is quite enough for a new season. On the other hand, Manga is very popular in Japan. However, in disc sales, which is an important financial data, the anime only sold around 200 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 to consider for a new season) The increasing popularity may still be a good chance for a second season.
When is the release date of season 2?
There are many leaks from the Japanese media that there will be a second season. We’ll wait and see. If the second season consists of 24 episodes like the first season, we will have to wait until 2021 late for the release date.
