Gleipnir season 1 debuted on April 5, 2020. When will its season 2 be available? Let’s find out.
Gleipnir was considered as one of the weird anime shows initially. Fans didn’t appreciate the character, premise, and visuals. But the show soon turned things around. It is now hailed as one of the refreshing, new takes on anime. The central theme of the show revolves around Ecchi, horror, and action. Action and ecchi fans loved the show; however, it didn’t receive much acceptance outside this.
Will There Be A Gleipnir Season 2?
There hasn’t been any official confirmation on whether a second season will be released. Gleipnir is facing a problem many other animes face as well – a lack of material. The first season adapted the first seven volumes of the manga. Only nine volumes are available, i.e., only two more to make a second season.
When Will Gleipnir Season 2 Be Released?
Fans are waiting eagerly for some sign of the anime’s release date, however, no studio has given any news yet. Since the airing of the last episode in season 1, on June 28, 2020, a raging debate among the fans is whether the show will appear during 2021 spring or Mid-2022. Most fans believe the latter.
The anime can’t afford to divert from the manga, as the story is well-liked, and the fans are excited to see the manga chapters get animated.
The first season was animated by Pine Jam and directed by Kazuhiro Yoneda. Shinichi Inotsume was responsible for composing the series, while Takahiro Kishida handled character design. No announcement on the cast for season 2 has been made, but they will likely remain the same, except around five new characters joining the show.
Season 2 Spoilers and Preview
Gleipnir Season 2 will have Shuichi, Claire, and Tadanori Sanbe heading to the alien ship’s crash site, as it was the reason for all the mess on their planet. However, the journey will be difficult, and they might come across the two guardians- one, a sword-wielding warrior, and the other, a strange girl who gains mysterious abilities from reptiles.
The combat will be very challenging, and they will also meet Kaito later on. He is capable of bringing the dead back to life. Defeating him will be a finicky task.
About The Show
Gleipnir follows the High School student Shuuichi Kagaya, who can transform into a monster. When he finds himself in a burning house with a girl trapped inside, he instinctively saves her, leaving his phone behind, before the cops arrive.
However, the girl he saved recognizes his monster form, as her sister possessed a similar ability and used it to kill her parents. The girl, Claire, makes it her mission to find and confront Shuuichi about his powers. Unfortunately, even Kagaya doesn’t know much about them. To find an answer to their questions, the two journey together but soon realize that they’re not alone. Others are also searching for the knowledge.
You can watch season 1 of Gleipnir on Funimation.
