It has been four years since fans last saw World End, and now they are eagerly waiting to see World End Season 2. World End was a short term for What Do You Do at the End of the World? Are You Busy? Will You Save Us? The show can steal everyone’s heart and make them a fan of this story, including its writer and director as well. However, despite that, the audience didn’t get to see more episodes of the anime series. The sequel of the light novel series is already here but will there be the sequel of the anime?
World End, also known as Suka Suka or the short term of Shumatsu Nani Shitemasu ka? Isogashii Desu ka? Sukutte Moratte Ii Desu ka? is a Japanese sci-fi fantasy anime series. It is the remake of the fantasy light novel series of the same title by Akira Kareno back in 2014 until 2017. Later it was also adapted into a manga series in 2016. The Suka Suka anime series made its debut in April 2017. The series ran for twelve episodes that ended on June 27 of the same year. Since then, every single fan of this show has been waiting for its second season.
World End Season 1: Quick Recap
It has been over 500 years since the human race almost went extinct at the hands of the fearsome and mysterious Beasts. The surviving races now make their homes, towns, and cities up on floating islands in the sky to keep out of reach of all but the most mobile of Beasts. Only a group of young girls dubbed the Leprechauns, can wield the ancient Dug Weapons needed to fend off invasions from those dangerous creatures.
Into the people’s unstable and fleeting lives, where a simple call to certain death could come at any moment, enters an unlikely character, a mysterious man who lost everything in his final battle five hundred years ago and had awakened from a long, icy slumber. Unable to fight any longer, the man,
Willem becomes the father those kids never had, caring for and nurturing them even as he struggles to come to terms with his new life, in which he feels the pain of helplessly waiting for his loved ones to return home from the battle that his daughter once felt for him so long ago. Together, Willem and the leprechauns gradually come to understand what family means and what is truly worth protecting in their lives.
World End Season 2: Renewal Status
The Suka Suka light novel series has a total of five volumes in it with a side story, and it ended way back in April 2016. Later on, the author released the sequel of this light novel series titled SukoMoka. They have published a total of eleven volumes in it. The first season of the anime has only adapted the first three volumes of SukaSuka. Therefore, for creating World End Season 2, the production company can use the remaining thirteen volumes. It is more than enough for a twelve-episode season. The makers can easily make four more installments of the anime with the rest of the source material.
The ratings and the viewership was also good enough for the makers to renew it for another installment. However, in the past few years, the popularity of anime series has decreased due to the time gap. Besides, the anime has already completed its job to promote its source material and the source material also finished its story. Therefore, despite having enough source material, the chances for World End Season 2 to happen are very unlikely.
World End Season 2: Release Date
Satelight and C2C, the studio that co-produced the debut season of the anime series, received a great response from the viewers. It met with positive critical reception as well. Despite that, the studios didn’t renew the series for a second run. The fans are continuously demanding an update on the second season. Yet, the makers and the production companies are pretty tight-lipped about it. They have neither renewed nor canceled World End Season 2. Therefore, the fans are still hopeful that their favorite anime will return for another run. Now we can only wait for the future announcement.
