Will Ningen Fushin Be Renewed for Season 2?
As previously mentioned, Ningen Fushin has not yet received a season 2 renewal. Yet, what are the possibilities of the show receiving a second airing? The source material and popularity are the two key aspects driving the argument about Ningen Fushiin season 2 with one factor acting against the renewal and the other in favor.
On the one hand, the original Ningen Fushin light book series from which the anime is adapted is still adding new chapters; so far, Japan has published four full tankobon volumes; volume 5 appeared on March 24, 2023.
The original work by Shinta Fuji has also been adapted into a manga with a total of six volumes published in Japan. This implies that there will be more than enough material to create a second season of the anime adaptation of Ningen Fushin.
On the other hand, the biggest concern with season 2 is whether Studio Geek Toys will want to continue production, especially in light of the show’s underwhelming reception from fans around the world.
User-based feedback platforms continue to offer crucial information on how different series are being perceived by anime viewers, even though they are by no means the end-all and be-all of anime renewals.
However, with Geek Toys’ upcoming Dead Mount Death Play and Liar Liar anime set to premiere on the 2023 Spring slate, there is a good chance that the studio will shelve Ningen Fushin in favor of more lucrative projects. As previously mentioned, these scores are by no means a definitive “nail in the coffin” for the chances of season 2.
Thus, it would be surprising, if not altogether pleasant, to see Ningen Fushin return for season 2. Yet, fans of the anime series may have one last hope for the success of Geek Toys’ future endeavors.
