The In/Spectre anime is based on the Kyokou Suiri (In/Spectre) novel series by Kyo Shirodaira. Since 2011, Kodansha has been serializing it along with works by Chasiba Katase and Hiro Kiyohara. Since 2015, the same publisher has been releasing a Chasiba Katase manga adaption. In this article, we shall discuss In/Spectre Season 2.
Fans of In/Spectre have been anticipating In/Spectre Season 2 since it first concluded in 2020 when the show made its big debut. While the epidemic was going on, Brain’s Base was working diligently on the show. And now, in advance of its premiere next year, a brand-new season two poster has surfaced!
The new vital visual for In/Spectre Season 2 features Kuro Sakuragawa and Kotoko Iwanaga as promised, as seen in the image below. In a crowded street, Kotoko leads as the leads are seen scurrying through it. Given what we learned about the couple in season one, we can anticipate that In/Spectre will explore their connection even more in its second season, and viewers won’t dare to object.
Is In/Spectre Season 2 delayed?
A year later, in January 2020, the In/Spectre anime series will premiere after first being teased in January 2019. Fans weren’t given much time to wait after episode 12 ended in March 2020 before a second production decision was made. In/Spectre Season 2 was announced in November 2020 with a unique teaser preview, as shown below.
In/Spectre Season 2 will debut in October 2022 as part of the Fall airing schedule, it was announced in March of this year. Takatoshi Honda will be succeeded as the character designer and principal animation director by Kentarou Matsumoto, according to Anime News Network. Aoi Yuki and Makoto Furukawa, who play Masayuki Muroi and Yuki-Onna, respectively, respectively, will be the two new characters for season 2.
Unfortunately, it has just been revealed that this premiere window has been delayed for both its domestic broadcast and international premiere via streaming platforms; as a result, to get to the new adventure, fans from all over the world will have to wait patiently.
The Japanese website stated, “Due to different circumstances, we have chosen to postpone the broadcast of “Fictional Reasoning (In/Spectre) Season 2,” which was slated to begin in October 2022.” Regrettably, no precise explanation for the delay was provided.
In/Spectre Season 2 Release Date
Even if the delay of In/Spectre season 2 is not ideal, the good news is that it won’t last too long. The Japanese version of the anime’s website announced the return date of the series in the same announcement announcing the delay.
Although a particular date was not provided, fans can anticipate that In/Spectre season 2 episode 1 will air on Crunchyroll on either Saturday, January 7th, or Saturday, January 14th, assuming the show keeps its spot on Japanese television from the first broadcast. The second season’s episode count has not yet been determined, however, it is anticipated that it will consist of another 12-episode run.
A second season of the anime doesn’t seem to have been anticipated by the series’ original author, Kyo Shirodaira, which is interesting. In a statement posted on the anime’s Japanese website, the creator stated that while “I honestly was startled because I did not expect a second season of the anime at all,” the team “will be waiting to see how the animated Ms. Iwanaga moves again.”
The Expected Plot of Season 2
Kotoko, 17, is in a peculiar circumstance. She was taken captive by ykai ghosts when she was a young girl, and when she was released, she had lost one of her legs and one of her eyes. She has been able to speak with both helpful and harmful extraterrestrial powers since that time. Until she finds out that Kur, her longtime crush, has had his own ykai encounter, Kotoko is all alone in her power. Kur’s life is in turmoil as if being affected by the paranormal wasn’t enough. Kotoko and Kur work together to solve mysteries—from ancient demons to the ghost of an idol—using their common experiences and understanding. The bigger issue, though, may be finding true love for a girl who is accustomed to coping with ghosts.
The Expected Cast of the anime
Yuuki Onna, portrayed by Aoi Yuuki, and Masayuki Muroi, voiced by Makoto Furukawa, are the new characters you can see in the video. The major characters, Kotoko Iwanaga and Kurou Sakuragawa, Akari Kitou, and Mamoru Miyano will return in In/Spectre season 2.
Ratings secured by the first season
In spite of receiving more than 163,000 individual reviews, the series only received 6.6/10 on IMDB and 6.91/10 on MyAnimeList when it debuted in 2020.
