Those of you who have watched The Ones Within are surely concerned about the possibility of a Season 2. The anime also known as Nakanohito Genome [Jikkyouchuu] premiered in July, and it has mainly been praised by viewers. So whether the mystery series has a chance to be renewed for a second season? To date, there has been no official news about the renewal. Yet it’s not a reason to get upset since we believe that Nakanohito Genome [Jikkyouchuu] Season 2 (The Ones Within Season 2) is due to happen. And below we are ready to explain why do we believe so.
Most of us know that Nakanohito Genome [Jikkyouchuu] is based on a Japanese manga series of the same name written by Osora. As of today, the manga consists of nine volumes, and the good news is that the last one was issued on June 27, 2019, on the eve of the Nakanohito Genome [Jikkyouchuu] Season 1 premiere. As a result, this new volume couldn’t be used in the current television adaptation. Accordingly, we now have at least one fresh book for a next television season.
Will there be a Nakanohito Genome Season 2?
However, since The Ones Within Season 1 consists of only twelve episodes, we frankly doubt that the Silver Link. studio managed to adapt even a half of source material. We thereby tend to believe that we have enough source material for The Ones Within Season 2 right now. Nonetheless, we will have to wait until The Ones Within Season 1 finished airing to find out how many volumes the studio Silver Link. (Fate/Kaleid, The World’s Finest Assassin) has used to produce the current television adaptation.
Talking about the reception from viewers, it was mainly average, nothing extraordinary. According to MyAnimeList, Nakanohito Genome [Jikkyouchuu] Season 1 holds a score of 6.74/10 based on over 6,100 votes. But still, such response from the target audience is more than enough for the further decision on renewal.
Finally, according to the information published on the official website of the anime series, the BD/DVD kit is set to release on Wednesday, September 25, 2019. Once we have enough data about the BD/DVD sales of the franchise, we might expand the forecast since the commercial success of the media franchise might point out the decision on renewal or cancelation of the series.
Summing up, Nakanohito Genome [Jikkyouchuu] has a good chance for another television season. No doubt, we should wait for the official announcement by the Silver Link. studio. Therefore, we are tracking down all the official Japanese sources on the subject of Nakanohito Genome [Jikkyouchuu] Season 2. Once the studio announces any official news about the 2nd season, we will update this page.
The Ones Within Season 2 Release Date
As mentioned above, we have every reason to believe that Nakanohito Genome [Jikkyouchuu] Season 2 is just a matter of time. But when might the 2nd season premiere in case of renewal? As usual, we are talking about two possible scenarios.
Therefore, in case if the Silver Link. studio adapted only four volumes out of nine, we might expect Nakanohito Genome [Jikkyouchuu] Season 2 already next year, in July 2022, given the current schedule of the series. If the studio used five books for the current television adaptation, we will have to wait until at least 2022, given that Osora, the manga author, releases two books a year and at least a year is required to create another television season.
The Ones Within Storyline
The story is taking place in Japan, where a wave of mysterious disappearances flooded the streets. Even despite that police officers were struggling to define some clues, the only hook was that all the vanished were youths.

Nakanohito Genome [Jikkyouchuu] Season 1 kicked off on July 7, 2019, on AT-X, and was later broadcast on Tokyo MX, KBS, SUN, BS11, and TVA. Nakanohito Genome [Jikkyouchuu] is based on the eponymous manga series by Osora. The Silver Link. studio served as a developer of the television adaptation.
