Guilty Crown is an original anime by Production I.G, which is a studio that’s known for adapting some of the most famous titles in the anime world like Attack on Titan, Haikyuu, and Psycho-Pass. The anime is a series of many genres such as action, drama, romance packed together to form an epic story. It also has mecha and superpower aspects as its theme. The anime is pretty popular, sitting at the 90th of the most popular anime out of all in MAL with one million members.
On October 15, 2011, the first two episodes of Guilty Crown were screened at the New York Anime Festival. As the second episode didn’t air in Japan until October 20, 2011, the screening of it was a world premiere. The anime ended at the 22nd episode on March 23, 2012. It’s been around for 9 years since its first release, so will there be long-awaited Guilty Crown Season 2 to serve as a continuation from the first season?
Will there be Guilty Crown Season 2?
As for now, there is still no information regarding Guilty Crown Season 2. It’s still not being announced yet because it’s unlikely that we will get a second season. What’s the reason behind it?
As Guilty Crown is an original anime, there is no source material that can supply for the story. With that being said, Production I.G has to come up with a new story that can serve as a continuation. Anyway, it doesn’t matter in the end as the anime itself has ended the story and there’s already a solid resolution, which proves that a new season is not necessary for the near future. As we all know, the story ended with the death of both Inori and Gai, with Shu being blind and the apocalypse virus has gone completely.
At the end of the day, we still don’t know whether there will be Guilty Crown Season 2, but it’s best to not expect anything at this point, given the reasons above.
There is a Guilty Crown manga!
For those of you who aren’t satisfied enough with the original ending from the anime, or just simply a true fan of the franchise, there is a manga that you can read literally everywhere. It adapted the first 12 episodes from the anime, but it has an alternate ending where Inori, the main heroine, survived and the story turns into a happy ending, unlike the anime. It overall explains the ending better than the anime.
As a reminder, the manga is not the source material as the anime is an original, and no, it’s not ahead of the anime. What makes them different is simply the ending of the story which is already explained above. With that being said, this manga is perfect if you’re fed up with the anime ending.
