Will Revisions be returning for a second season? Let's explore the possibility.
Revisions season 1 was a huge hit on Netflix and it's now only a matter of time before we get season 2. The Netflix Original series was written by Makoto Fukami and Taichi Hashimoto but was not adapted from a manga. Yes, unlike most animes, Revisions was not a manga first. This is usually unheard of in the anime community so as of now we have literally no idea what we can expect in the second season. But before we can even discuss the plot of the second season we must first explore if there is going to be a second season at all.
It's just a matter of time before Netflix gives Revisions season 2 the greenlight but as of right now we have no official news regarding its renewal. The decision to renew the series isn't only going to be from Netflix. Fuji TV will ultimately have the final say when it comes to renewal but Netflix's massive bank account is enough to sway any decision.
Anime takes quite a long time to be produced and since Revisions has a lot of CG animation it may take a little longer than the average anime. So I wouldn't hold my breath for season 2 to come out anytime soon. 2020 seems like wishful thinking but 2021 seems very likely.
There isn't any manga to go by as the show is completely original. The manga that is being written is based on the anime so it doesn't have any new content at the moment.
Kazuya Ide, a producer at Shirogumi Inc, the CGI animation studio behind the show said in an interview:
"Script development is a very long process. Especially so when it's an original series. But again, unless you have the script made and fixed in place, you can't start building the world. So the script development itself takes a long time regardless of what you're working on, and with an original project, you have to make the script from scratch. Then, based on the script, you have to then make the entire world from scratch with CG. It's a very difficult process – very challenging!"
"If it's a live-action movie, they basically draw the buildings and things they need to set the scene, and they have to do the same thing with the creation of CG. So it all starts from there. And then, once you do the backgrounds and build the world itself, then you can put characters in it and see how they react and think about character movement. So that is a lot of work to start with."
The show follows a boy by the name Daisuke Dojima, who was kidnapped when he was a child. He is transported to 300 years in the future with his friends where they have to fight against a number of murderous cyborgs known as Revisions.
