The world ends with you Animation just wrapped up on Funimation and fans are already wondering if the hit series will return.
The series is also known as Subarashiki Kono Sekai The Animation and is an animated adaptation based on the Square Enix (2007) game of the same name.
Directed by Kazuya Ichikawa and written by Midori Goto, the series was released on Funimation in April 2021 and ended this month (June 2021). For the purposes of this article, the anime may be referred to as “TWEWY”.
So, will the series continue in season 2?
Will there be a season 2 of The World Ends with You The Animation?
- At the time of writing this article, The world ends with you Animation has not been renewed for Season 2. However, based on the poor reviews, we don’t expect the series to return.
The series is at 7.1 / 10 on IMDB and 5.96 on My anime list, where it was rated by thousands of viewers. Poor reviews show that there won’t be a high enough demand from viewers to warrant a second season.
Of course there is the next game called ‘Neo: The world ends with you‘, due for release in July 2021. This game will be a sequel to the 2007 game, with a new protagonist.
This could mean that if the game is popular enough it could pave the way for a second season and new arcs, but it still seems highly unlikely at this time.
TWEWY Season 2: Release Date Prediction
As the series has not yet been renewed, we are unable to give an official release date. However, we can estimate when Season 2 would release if the series were to be renewed. Therefore, we expect the series to release season 2 in the spring of 2022.
The reason for this is that Season 1 was released on April 10, 2021 and ended on June 26, 2021 after 12 episodes. If the series were to be renewed, we would expect an average one-year gap between seasons, leaving an expected release date of April 2022.
This could depend on the commitments of the animation studios “DOMERICA” and “Shin-Ei Animation” who co-hosted the series. If they chose to work for a potential 2nd season, we would still estimate a one-year gap between seasons.
