There are numerous hidden anime gems on Netflix, but “Erased” is a popular favorite. The fascinating time-traveling drama has only 12 brief episodes, leaving fans wanting more. Exists more to the tale? Here are the known facts.
The science fiction series concerns 29-year-old Satoru Fujinuma, who can momentarily travel back in time to save a person’s life; he employs an ability called “revival.” After the murder of his mother, he is sent back 18 years to when he was in elementary school, further than ever before. Now, his mother’s destiny is intertwined with that of his three kidnapped and murdered classmates.
In Japan, “Erased” is known as “Boku Dake ga Inai Machi,” or “The Town Where Only I Am Missing.” The eight-volume manga series has now been converted into a live-action film, an anime series, and a Netflix live-action series.
Here is everything we know about Season 2 of “Erased” the anime.
Will It Happen or Not?
Still eagerly awaiting the release of the second season, which launched on Netflix in 2016, are the fans. According to several reliable sources, Erased’s second season will ultimately be produced.
The announcement that this anime series would debut on December 10, 2021, means that fans will not have to wait much longer. According to the sources, it will be followed by 12 episodes. Consequently, if this is true, fans may lose interest in the next December, but a prevalent global epidemic could affect the show, and producers may also change the real date.
When Will Erased Season 2 Release?
There is currently no confirmation that “Erased” will receive a second season, hence its release date is unknown. Five years have passed since the conclusion of the anime, but its availability on Netflix has attracted new viewers. Netflix and animation studio A-1 Pictures will likely produce the series’ second season if fans demonstrate sufficient enthusiasm. Netflix has recently developed a keen interest in anime, producing an abundance of original content.
Nonetheless, if they do renew “Erased” shortly, fans may have to wait a few years to see it. The original “Erased” manga, written and illustrated by Kei Sanbe, was published for the first time in June 2012 and completed in April 2016. The anime and live-action feature were both released in March 2016, before the printing of the conclusion. According to Crunchyroll, the 2017 Netflix live-action series is the only adaptation to remain faithful to the manga’s ending. Nevertheless, despite this, anime remains popular.
What Will Be the Plot of Erased Season 2?
Even though the anime did not completely adhere to the manga’s plot, it did conclude the murder mystery and tie up any loose ends. So, what else must the second season cover? The writers could, of course, create an original plot centered on Satoru’s time-traveling skill that is distinct from the source material. However, the manga did feature a spin-off novel that further examined the killer’s motivations and what transpired after “Erased.”
It is feasible that Season 2 of “Erased” could employ this material, albeit the series’ framework would likely be considerably different from Season 1. The original author also authored and illustrated a spin-off manga named “Boku Ga Inai Machi: Re” that centers on Kayo Hinazuki, one of the initial kid victims. While the main plot may have concluded, there is ample material to produce a new season; it would simply be a little different.
Who Is in the Cast of Erased Season 2?
Since Season 2 has not yet been confirmed, the possible cast remains unknown. It would depend totally on the plot and, consequently, the personalities featured in it. The main character in the first season of “Erased” is portrayed by two voice actors, as he exists at two quite different ages, but this may not make sense in subsequent episodes.
Ben Diskin voices Satoru at age 29 in the English dub, while Michelle Ruff portrays him at age 10 in the dub. Both are prolific voice actors in English dubs for Western animation and anime. Fans have undoubtedly heard Diskin’s voice previously, possibly as Sai in “Naruto: Shippûden” and “Boruto” or as Joseph Joestar in “JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure.” In addition to numerous other parts, Ruff provided the voice of Kaori in the sci-fi anime classic “Akira” and Fujiko Mine in “Lupin the Third.” Either of them can return, depending on the anime’s plot.
As stated previously, the dates have been disclosed and it is certain that the event will occur. In the next months, it is likely that the cast, plot, and trailer will also be announced by the film’s developers, so keep an eye out for good news.
