When will the sequel to the anime “Somali and the Forest Spirit Season 2” come out?
Fans of the story of the little girl and the protector of the forest, who first read the manga and then watched the series, understand that the anime almost completely repeated the plot of the published volumes. This means that currently there is not enough source material to create new series. Unfortunately, writing a single volume takes a lot of time. And in practice, it is very rare if 2 volumes are released in a calendar year. It also became known that the last volume of the manga was released on December 22, 2020 due to the illness of its author Yako Gureishi. With that said, we shouldn’t expect new episodes of the anime “Somali and the Forest Spirit” any time soon. We continue to monitor the information.
For many years, people and various creatures lived in parallel, not even suspecting the existence of each other. At the first meeting of the two races, stubborn and evil people were surprised by creatures that were neither like humans nor among themselves. Misunderstanding and rage erupted between nations, resulting in war. Most of humanity died, because people were physically weaker. A small part of the survivors became pets for creatures and even their food.
Years passed. On the next patrol walk through the forest, the Golem meets a human child, a lonely and frightened girl. Golem could not pass by. Despite the complete absence of emotions, he decided to take custody of her and find other people. Somali, as befits a young creature, is curious and naive. She quickly finds interest, forgetting about everything in the world. In various situations, he always comes to the rescue – a stone protector of the forest, who became not just a friend to her, but a real “dad”. What will happen to their friendship when travelers finally find people? Can the Golem understand real human emotions?..
