There are tons of hidden anime gems on Netflix, but enthusiasts like “Erased.” Yet, with only 12 short episodes, the fascinating time-traveling plot leaves viewers wanting more. Is there more to the story? Here’s what we know.
The sci-fi series features 29-year-old Satoru Fujinuma, who can go momentarily back in time when someone’s life is in danger; he utilizes an ability called “revival” to rescue peoples’ lives. But once his mother is murdered, he’s sent back deeper than ever before – 18 years into his past, to when he was in elementary school. Now, his mother’s destiny is tangled up with his three friends who were kidnapped and executed.
Titled “Boku Dake ga Inai Machi” or “The Town Where Only I Am Missing” in Japan, “Erased” began as an eight-volume manga book but has now been translated into a live-action movie, an anime show, and a Netflix live-action series.
Erased Season 2 Release Date
No word yet on whether “Erased” will get a second season. Therefore a release date has not yet been established. Netflix, for example, has recently shown a keen interest in anime, releasing numerous original series in the genre. Even though the anime has been over for five years, Netflix’s decision to stream it has attracted new viewers.
There is a chance that Netflix and animation studio A-1 Pictures will produce a second season if fans demonstrate enough support for the series.
Kei Sanbe’s original “Erased” manga was released in June 2012 and ended in April 2016, respectively. Before the publication of the last chapter, both the anime and live-action feature were released in March 2016. Fans may have to wait a few years to see “Erased” if it is renewed soon.
As a result, according to Crunchyroll, Netflix’s 2017 live-action version is the only one that adheres to the manga’s finale. Despite this, anime remains popular.
The Plotline of Season 2 of Erased
A murder mystery was solved, and all loose ends were tied up even though the anime didn’t follow manga strictly. If the writers wanted to explore Satoru’s time-traveling abilities, they could create a new plot. After “Erased,” however, a follow-up novel went in-depth into the killer’s motivations in more detail. What else needs to be addressed for Season 2?
Season 2 of Erased could make use of this information. Still, the show’s format would likely alter significantly from that of Season 1. “Boku Ga Inai Machi: Re” is the name of the spin-off manga written and illustrated by the original author, who was one of the actual kid victims of the original manga.
A new season might be made even if the main storyline has concluded; the only difference is tone.
The Cast of Erased Season 2
Season 2 hasn’t been confirmed yet. Therefore we don’t know who the cast might be. When it comes to which characters will be featured in the story, it depends on the plot. Two voice actors play the main character in “Erased‘s” first season as he exists in two very distinct eras, but this may not make sense for later episodes.
- Ben Diskin portrays Satoru Fujinuma in the film.
- In the role of Sachiko Fujinuma, Minami Takayama is featured.
- David W. Collins portrays Gaku Yashiro.
- Stephanie Sheh portrays Kayo Hinazuki in the anime series.
- Playing the role of Hiromi Sugita is Christine Marie Cabanos.
- She plays Osamu in the show.
Erased Season 2: Will It Be Renewed?
As we all know, the series premiered on Crunchyroll, Daisuki, and Funimation in 2016. Because the show’s major animation studio, A-1 Pictures, is now working on other manga series, we haven’t heard anything formal about a Season 2 renewal.
Netflix has been working on a spin-off or live-action picture based on the Erased books and series. There will be a lot of interest in seeing if the show gets a second season, a spin-off, or a live-action picture. As one Quora user hypothesized, there may not be a Season 2 because of the conclusion of the anime’s story in Season 1.
Erased Season 2: How Many Episodes Will, There Be?
There were 12 episodes in the first season of the Erased manga. Erased’s second season is incredibly doubtful, as we’ve said, and no one has stated anything about it expressly, so we don’t know anything yet. However, if the program does return, we expect it to contain at least 12 episodes, if not more, much like the first season.
Is Season 2 of Erased Available on Netflix or Hulu?
Because the second season of Erased has yet to be announced, and we believe it is doubtful, no one can watch it at this moment. Although the first season’s broadcasting pattern suggests that the show will air on Fuji TV in Japan and via Netflix globally, they feature the anime in their library.
