After the release of season 1, fans have been anticipating the release of season 2 for a very long time and here is everything you need to know about this anime.
'Juuni Taisen: Zodiac War' or 'Jūni Taisen' is a Japanese novel that is written by Nisio Isin and the illustrations of the anime are done by Hikaru Nakamura. The novel was first published in May 2015. This anime is a prequel to another manga titled 'Dōshitemo Kanaetai Tatta Hitotsu no Negai to Wari to Sō demo Nai 99 no Negai' which is translated as 'The One Wish That Must Be Granted, and the Ninety-nine That Can Be Done Without' and it was released on January 2015. The licensing of the novel is handled by Viz Media. The manga was later on adopted as an anime series by Graphicana and it aired from October 3, 2017, to December 19, 2017. When the first season released, it became widely popular among the audience and the critics alike. It has been almost two years since the season 1 finale aired and fans are now waiting with bated breath to see when the second season will be hitting the screen. Well fret no more, we bring everything you need to know about season 2 of 'Juuni Taisen'.
No release date for the television adaptation has been announced yet, but fans still have a glimmer of hope as the last set of the light novel of the same name was released on December 12, 2018. Since the new novel produced a lot of new material, one can expect that season 2 will come to fruition.
The plot, as the title suggests deals with warriors. The show begins in a city where approximately half a million people live. By some unknown event, all these people have been removed. In order to deal with the situation, twelve mercenary officers, who are known to be the deadliest, all signify the attributes of the Chinese zodiac. They are all pitted against each other in the twelfth zodiac tournament and it takes place every twelve years. During the fight, every warrior is asked to swallow one of the twelve poisonous gems and it will kill every single warrior in twelve hours. The winner must retrieve all the gems from the other eleven and must do so before the deadline.
No trailer about the second season has been available as of now, but since the second series of the manga has already been released, it can be expected that the television series will be renewed too. If that is the case, a trailer for the second season will drop in no time as soon as the series goes into production.
There is a reason why there is such a huge demand for a second season. As it is the case with most of the anime out there, 'Juuni Taisen' was adopted from a manga series. When it was adapted into a television anime series, it was widely liked by the audience and critics alike. It had pretty high ratings on its opening and finale episodes and we hope that the second season will meet with a similar kind of success.
Right now, there has been no indication of season 3 happening as of now but we all can hope that the fans of this beloved anime will get a third season in the upcoming future.
