It is the original anime series by Studio Trigger and later licensed by Netflix. The anime was first announced at Anime Expo on 5 July 2019, and after a year it premiered on Japan’s Fuji TVs ultra programming block. It is directed by Yoh Yoshinari and the scriptwriter is Kazuki Nakashima. The BNA Season 2 anime could continue the story of Michiru Kagemori and Shirou Ogami in Anima City The question is whether or not Trigger will produce a Brand New Animal Season 2 anime series.

It is Japanese series; it is a science fiction, fantasy drama genre anime with an appealing storyline that’s why it’s attracted most of the audience. The first season has 12 episodes released on 8 April 2020 on Netflix. The season ended with a cliffhanger and led the people to wonder what will happen in the next season.

Will there be BNA Season 2

Brand New Animal

When the script was written for the first season of BNA, there was no sign of renewal for the second season, and Netflix also didn’t cancel the second season. This anime has secured a good position with a high audience in just less time after its release. And as we know Netflix will never release such hyped and popular series among fans so that their audience cuts down. BNA is a short series anime, and that to be it is not adapted from any manga series. This means Netflix can renew this series and also direct the writers for a creative and good storyline.

BNA Season 2 Release Date

BNA Season 2 Release Date

This anime Brand New Animal serialized in Tonari no Young Jump and the mangaka in Asano. There are also 12 chapters as 12 episodes in anime which were released on 29 May 2020.

The release date of Brand New Animal season 2 is not yet confirmed or decided by Studio Trigger (“Kill la Kill, Darling in the FranXX”). No official confirmation from the production house that the anime could return. In Anime Expo 2019, when the anime was announced there was some indication that gave hints for the second season renewal in early 2021, but as we can see there is a delay, it must be because of the spread of the Covid-19 virus.

As of now, Netflix will never schedule back-to-back series so close as Beastmen is also coming to end. If everything goes right and the production of the BNA 2 starts this year then, the audience can expect that the release date of BNA season 2 might be happening in the mid-year of 2022 or early 2023.

BNA Season 2 Expected Plot

As of now, there is no official update about the second season, and because it is not adapted from any manga series so predicting the storyline is also difficult. It’s upon the makers where they want the storyline to be. As the season 1 ending had one loose end. Where it left Michiru and Nazuna’s condition unresolved, and they were into humanoid form.

The cure for the transformation of a human into a humanoid has still not been found although Sylvasta Pharmaceuticals has figured how to transform into a super Beastman. So it is expected that the story of Michiru and Nazuna gives space to the makers to divert the plotline into any direction and explore for BNA season 2.

Where To Watch BNA

Watch BNA on:

BNA Action

The set of the story is set in the 21st century, where a humanoid animal or anthropomorphic animal called Beastmen living in the darkness for centuries, has finally come to light. The story starts when a normal high school student, Michiru Kagemori suddenly transforms into tanuki Beastman. Running away from everyone she initiates her journey to Anima City where all humanoids can live peacefully and it is specially set only for them to live by themselves.

After that, she met Shirou Ogami, a wolf Beastman who helped her and investigated the truth behind her conversion. How did Michiru become humanoid? And in the process they two dive into some unexpected mystery and strange events, which leads to even deeper secrets of the origin of Anima City. This shows based on a major theme that is horrors and desolation from prejudice and racism.

When Michiru arrives at Anima City there are two dominant races on earth humanity and humanoid (Beastmen) are on the edge of waging conflict against each other. And of course, there is some greater force in each side who wanted war just for their own sake. The representatives from both sides, especially from defeat, turned out to be corrupt who agreed to serve humanity by going against their kind. Later Michiru discovered that there is some indication and scope for the reconciliation. But her main objective is to find a cure to become a person again.
