Akame ga Kill is a Japanese anime that aired on television in 2014. It was based on the manga by Takahiro, illustrated by Tetsuya Tashiro. It was a big hit at the time. This led to the hype for the second season. However, the anime was never aired despite rumors of release dates.
Will there be Akame ga Kill season 2?
Akame ga Kill hasn’t had a season 2 in over 7 years. Rumors have been growing since then. The first season was produced by Square Enix. It was aired on several TV channels and received promising reviews. But the story has been completed. At this point, only the fallout can be animated. Even if the rumors are true, animating spin-offs is far-fetched. The chances of remastering the Anime series, which is more accurate as far as the manga is concerned, are also low.
Akame ga Kill Season 2 Release Date: When will it be released?
The first season of the series covered the whole story of Akame Ga Kill. The ending was exclusive to the anime because the manga was not finished yet. You may have found some differences in the final episodes. There are high chances for season 2 or a spins-of or OVA because the manga Akame Ga Kill has a prequel “Akame Ga Kill! Zero”. This manga has never been animated despite its popularity. Also, there is a sequel to the manga “Hinowa ga Crush” which is the continuation of the original story.
Akame ga Kill anime was made by the studio White Fox (Cautious Hero & Grimoire of Zero) which is also responsible for some other famous works Steins;Gate, Re:Zero, The Devil is a Part-Timer!, Goblin Slayer. Since both The Devil is a Part-Timer! Season 2 and Goblin Slayer Season 2 has been announced, we may be not getting Akame ga Kill Season 2 any time soon.
According to some rumors, the anime “Akame Ga Kill” will be aired in 2022 or 2023. However, there is no official announcement. We still don’t know whether the anime is in production or not. We might receive the announcement at the end of this year. If the production was already planned, the anime might be delayed further due to the COVID pandemic.
Akame ga Kill Season 2: What will be the plot be?
The plot is probably taken from the manga Akame ga Kill! Zero. It is a manga derived from the prequel that spans over 10 volumes. It mainly focuses on the story of one of the members of Night Raid, Akame. She is considered the female protagonist of the story. She has a very stern demeanor in battle but shows great concern for her comrades. The story covers Akame’s past when she was working for the empire as an assassin. This was before she defected for the night raid.
Akame ga Kill! Storyline
Night Raid is the covert assassination branch of the Revolutionary Army, an uprising assembled to overthrow Prime Minister Honest, whose avarice and greed for power has led him to take advantage of the child emperor’s inexperience. Without a strong and benevolent leader, the rest of the nation is left to drown in poverty, strife, and ruin. Though the Night Raid members are all experienced killers, they understand that taking lives is far from commendable and that they will likely face retribution as they mercilessly eliminate anyone who stands in the revolution’s way.
This merry band of assassins’ newest member is Tatsumi, a naïve boy from a remote village who had embarked on a journey to help his impoverished hometown and was won over by not only Night Raid’s ideals, but also their resolve. Akame ga Kill! follows Tatsumi as he fights the Empire and comes face-to-face with powerful weapons, enemy assassins, challenges to his own morals and values, and ultimately, what it truly means to be an assassin with a cause.
