Last year, during Anime NYC 2019, the makers officially announced Megalo Box Season 2. The news wasn’t surprising for the fans as they already knew it will arrive sooner or later. But the fans are definitely excited to see more of this anime. The inaugural season received a great response from the fans, and the critics also praised this series. If you’re a fan of this brilliant show, here’s everything you need to know about its upcoming installment.
Megalo Box is a Japanese action anime series. The creators announced this show on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the manga series Ashita no Joe. TMS Entertainment produced the anime series, which made its debut on April 6, 2018. It ran for thirteen episodes, with the last episode being aired on March 23, 2019. The last episode featured the final match of Megalonia.
Production & Renewal Details Of The Second Season!
The anime got a quick renewal for the creators after completing its debut season. In November 2019, TMS Entertainment revealed a teaser video in which they revealed that Megalo Box Season 2 is in development. They also revealed that there would be a gap of seven years between the events of the first and the second season. The production for its second season might go a little slower than usual because the studio is also busy with the production of Dr. Stone Season 2, which is already scheduled for early 2021.
Megalo Box Season 2: Plot Details!
At the end of the debut season, a year after Junk Dog’s fateful match with Yuri, they announced a second Megalonia tournament. But being on the peak of the Megaloboxing world may not be exactly what he’d hoped it would be. It is also possible that “Gearless” Joe came under stress to build Gear of his own to defend the title. Junk Dog could also feel problems with the women since Yukiko Shirato was encouraged by Youko Shiraki. She was the dearest thing to a girlfriend to Joe.
Now in Megalo Box Season 2, Youko toys with his future like a beast in the way she plans Joe’s fights. Despite Joe’s restorative condition being wrong, she also assists him to push himself to the utmost in the match against Mendoza. The thing is, everyone understands they’re liked by each other, and they’re shown right when she understands she’s in love with Joe. TMS Entertainment won’t show it in the same way and will undoubtedly add some fresh elements to it.
Megalo Box Season 2: Release Date
Unfortunately, when the creators announce the second season of this anime, they didn’t mention its release date. It’s been an entire year since TMS Entertainment began the production for the following installment. Therefore, fans won’t have to wait much longer now. It is likely that Megalo Box Season 2 will premiere in the first half of 2021. The makers will reveal its official release date anytime soon.
