As an anime fan, the saddest part about your favorite titles is when its the final episode of the series. Depending on the popularity of it (i.e. merch sales as well as the fandom surrounding it) nine times outta ten your favorite title usually gains a second season. (Or third or fourth if its really popular.) With the amount of anime that’s out in the world right now, there have been several titles that have flown under the radar; meaning that in spite of having great character development as well as a decent plot, they never go past the first season – which is kind of a shame! So from us to you, here are five underrated anime titles that really NEED a second season.
Chivalry of a Failed Knight
As fans of this series we can’t tell you how much this series needs a second season! If you haven’t gotten the chance to see this series just yet, this is one we recommend that you check out! There’s so much more to Ikki and Stella’s relationship as well as what will happen at the Seven Star Sword Art Festival, so hopefully we get to see a second season of this awesome show!
As a part of the Saturday Night Toonami lineup back in the mid 2010’s, this title is beloved by many despite the fact that it only got one season. The manga of course goes deeper and even reveals that fan-favorite Shiro is the most powerful ‘Deadman’ in the whole series; which may be one of the reasons to give this series another season, or possibly two!
The Sacred Blacksmith
This one’s another title that had some great potential to have a second season, but like many underrated titles it never got the credit or fanfare that it deserved. If you’ve read the manga, you already know that the main characters are waaay different in personality that their anime versions. Another gem that kinda needs a second season…
No Game, No Life!
Anyone who has seen this series already knows it needs a second season! Who doesn’t want another season of Sora and Shiro? Will the two of them finally beat the God of Games and claim the world of games as their own? Welp, we’ll have to find out in the second season – IF it gets one!
Hip-Hop, Feudal Japan, and Samurai? These three things make up this classic known as Samurai Champloo! If you’re a fan of Cowboy Bebop, then you’re gonna love this series. Great characters, awesome fights, and good music! This one is NOT to be overlooked! 😉
There are so many titles out there with only one season; some of the reasons for that can range from the lack of sales (DVD’s and merch) to the studio becoming bankrupt (which has happened in several cases). Nevertheless these one-season titles are still awesome and still give you the same level of excitement as you’d find in multi-season titles. On that note that will do it for this post, but we’ve still got some more blog content coming your way! 😉
