Floating Dragonsalso known as Kuutei dragonsis one of many anime Netflix released in 2020. The adventure, cooking and fantasy anime is actually a manga adaptation. The series originally aired on Fuji TV (+Ultra), KTV, THK, TNC, UHB, BS Fuji between January 9, 2020 – March 26, 2020. The licensing rights of the series, which grew in popularity after airing on Fuji TV, were acquired. by Netflix and were listed on Netflix on April 30, 2020. The anime was created by Polygon Pictures, such as Levius that we analyzed the details of the second season. The last episode of the 12-episode series was “Dragon Corridor”. The details of the second season of the series are curious. Does Netflix renewed the series for a second season?
What is the storyline of Drifting Dragons Season 2?
The rulers of the sky, dragons. While dragons pose a major threat to humans on Earth, they are also sources of medicine, food, and materials. For this reason, dragon hunters hunt in the sky with their ships. This story is the story of one of the ships mentioned, Quin Zaza and his crew.
In the first season, Drifting Dragon was an anime that tells the daily life of Quin Zaza’s crew, who soars through the air and hunts dragons through the eyes of Takita, the ship’s newcomer. Although the animation of the anime causes prejudice at first, it manages with the details of the drawings of the dragons. The characters are colorful and let you feel what they are going through.
However, there was a point missing in the first season of this anime† The anime only talks about hunting dragons, but the anime has a mystical world that can have serious potential. Anime can’t tell; it does not. It just takes place around the crew and saddens anime lovers who talk about the sky. Because there can be many stories from this universe, and we think that the anime will expand on the theme in its second season.
The anime’s music was pretty good; there is a Spotify list for those who liked the songs of the anime! In short, while the world building part was heavily wasted, this was the perfect anime for those who spend time on lockdown days or fans of fantasy, with a sweet scenario.
Will there be a second season of Drifting Dragons?
Netflix released the first season of the series on April 30, 2020. Netflix has the license rights, and a possible second season is broadcast on Netflix. Netflix has not yet renewed the series for a second season. We have made an analysis whether the series will get a new season. It is possible to evaluate under a few headings.
The series is an adaptation of a manga, as we said before. The original manga series began to be published in a Japanese manga magazine, “Good! Afternoon”, on June 7, 2016. It was published in 9 volumes for the manga written and illustrated by Taku Kuwabara. The manga still continues today The final volume was released on September 7, 2020. An English version is available for those who want to read the manga in English. Seven volumes of the series have been translated into English so far.
So, does the manga provide enough source material for the second season of the anime? The answer to the question is yes. The anime is very faithful to the manga and the anime covers the first three parts of the manga. At an estimated ratio, the series has enough material for at least two more seasons. Below is a detailed comparison of anime and manga episodes.

Other Factors and Season 2 Release Date
Netflix released nine anime this year. Among them are notable successful anime such as Blood of Zeus and Dorohedoro† We know that some of the highlights are being renewed for the second season. But we’re not sure about Drifting Dragons. Drifting Dragons was the least viewed anime of the 9 anime released on Netflix in 2020. It was not noticed or given a chance by many. Under these circumstances, Netflix is unlikely to give the series a chance at a second run. But resource adequacy still suggests a second season may be in the works. We are on it fifty and fifty percent. If Netflix extends the series with a second season, an average production of one year is assumed. In this case, we may see a new season in the spring of 2021.
