When will the sequel to the anime “Gleipnir Season 2” be released?

The viewer, who initially got acquainted with the story thanks to the manga, and then saw the anime adaptation, could notice one fact. The series, as often happens, could not fully convey the artistic style and the depth of emotions that the author laid down in the book version. Despite this, the anime received its portion of good reviews and, most likely, the sequel will be released. Season 2 has not yet been officially announced, but it can be assumed that it takes about 1 year to create one season. Thus, we expect the premiere of the series “Gleipnir Season 2” in April-May 2021.

Plot

No one believed Clair Aoki, who claimed that monsters lived among humans. After the terrible death of her parents and the disappearance of her sister, she became isolated in herself. No one believed her. All that she had was a gold coin, the purpose of which the girl did not know. Clair understood that a coin could help her find answers to her main questions.

Shuichi Kagaya grew up an ordinary boy until one day he turned into a monster. Outwardly it was a dog costume. After the transformation, the guy gained incredible strength, dexterity, as well as the sense of smell of the animal. And on ordinary days, the guy had a nose like a dog. Where did he get this ability from? Or maybe it’s a curse? There are many questions. But Shuichi decided for himself: never under any circumstances to show others who he really is.
