Darwin’s Game is a Winter 2020 anime series that concluded its run in March of the same year. The Season 1 finale strongly hinted at Darwin’s Game Season 2, and fans have been eagerly waiting for Season 2 ever since.
Darwin’s Game (Jap.: Dāwinzu Gēmu) is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by FLIPFLOPs. An anime television series adaptation by Studio Nexus (“Chivalry of a Failed Knight“) aired from January 3 to March 20, 2020.
Darwin’s Game Season 2 Release Date
FLIPFLOPs launched the series in the January 2013 issue of Akita Shoten’s shōnen manga magazine Bessatsu Shōnen Champion which was published on December 12, 2012. The series has been compiled into 22 volumes as of December 8, 2020. The manga entered its final arc on January 11, 2020.
Studio Nexus hasn’t announced any other anime plans for 2020 or 2021. Assuming the first season is financially successful, maybe they’ll jump straight into production for the second season.
Let’s just hope Darwin’s gaming season doesn’t end like Btooom!, which was never made, leaves anime audiences hanging in the air while waiting for the Death Game story to be completed in the manga.
Season 2 of Darwin’s Game is yet to be announced. We can expect an announcement by the end of this year and the series to be out by Winter 2022.
Series creator FLIPFLOPs or Studio Nexus have not released the release date or confirmation of production. This article will be updated with the relevant information as soon as it is out, so be sure to check back!
Darwin’s Game Manga is Ending Soon
Bessatsu Shonen Champion magazine announced in December 2020 that the “last event” in history began in volume 22.
The end of Darwin’s Game manga is coming pretty soon. While the final chapter or volume has yet to be revealed, it has been announced that the manga has entered its final story arc starting January 11, 2020.
What to Expect From Season 2
The ending of Darwin’s Game Episode 11 corresponded to Chapter 30 of Volume 8.
However, the final scenes summarized only parts of later chapters since the anime’s ending outlined how the Sunset Ravens implemented a D-Game ban.
Darwin’s Game season 1 did not cover the Police Investigation Sub-plot, but it’s possible Darwin’s Game Season 2 will bring it back to the forefront once the matter is escalated.
