Last Tour girls is an anime series in the genre of Iyashikei (a sub-branch of the slice-of-life genre) set in a post-apocalyptic world. The series, which is one of the most influential animations of 2017, is actually based on manga like many anime series. The manga is owned by Japanese artist Tsukumizu, who wrote and illustrated the story himself. Successful studio white fox made the last tour for girls. We also know the studio from well-known anime such as Goblin Slayer and Arifureta† The anime, licensed by Sentai Filmworksoriginally aired on AT-X, Tokyo MX, BS11 and many local networks from October 6, 2017 to December 22, 2017. It was later released on Amazon Prime and gained worldwide recognition. However, after the first season of 12 episodes, we haven’t seen a second season yet. But will the series be a second season despite the elapsed time?
What is the storyline of the anime?
The anime is about two little girls left alone in cities devastated by long wars and tells that their struggle for survival is their new war. Civilization is destroyed, but chito and Yuuri continuing their lives amid this destruction, wandering aimlessly among the ruins of the world on their beloved motorcycle called Kettenkrad. They spend their time in the empty streets looking for food and water to drink. Despite their worse days and cities with no element of luck, these two have each other. During desperate days, these two friends who are looking for their next meal and enough fuel to sustain them for another day can be seen as the reason they only live the experiences and feelings they share in this world without anything with them. .
Even though the dialogues may seem boring to you in the Girls’ Last Tour animation at first, we’ve reviewed the anime with satirical questions and questions that will make you think about many issues, from the wars underlying the dialogues to the social order. Looking at the characters, because Chito is more dignified, more careful and smarter than Yuuri, she gets a place in the team with a little leader and a little bit of control. On the other hand, Yuuri can be seen as the opposite: she doesn’t care about anything except food; her mind is in the mood and a little lazy. But she’s adept at guns. In this way, she is in the defensive part of the team.
Will there be a second season of Girls’ Last Tour?
From April 2021the anime hasn’t come yet renewed for a second season at the time of writing. The white fox studio has not announced the 2021 and 2022 work plan for any anime, including Last Tour girls† We saw that the animes were renewed after years, but most of these animations were popular and had sufficient source material. Looking at these details for the Girls’ Last Tour, we have some concerns; Let’s speculate about the new season among all known key factors.
Manga status in terms of second season opportunity
As we mentioned at the beginning of the article, the manga of the same name was written and illustrated by Tsukumizu. The manga published in Shinchosha’s Kurage Bunch magazine since 2014 has been merged into 6 volumes. However, the manga series was completed on January 12, 2018 and is no longer running. The anime series progresses true to the manga. In the first season of the anime series, the first 4 parts were adapted. If we look at the remaining stock material, we see that there are only 2 volumes left. Obviously, the remaining source material is simply not enough for a new 12-episode season. The anime series may continue with original content, but this is a tricky opportunity that we don’t often see.
Disc sales and the other factors
Disc sales for animes are important, both financially and given their popularity in Japan. In general, an anime is expected to have more than 4,000 sales in volume average before it can be approved for another season. Looking at Girls’ Last Tour’s BluRay and DVD sales, we see that two volumes have been sold. In the first volume, 2497 copies were sold and in the second volume, 2,387 copies were sold. Although there are not very bad sales, we see that it is under the dam.
Looking at the overall popularity rating of the anime, we see a score of 77.1%. In global evaluation, we see that it has an above-average popularity. However, only 27k people follow the animes Twitter accountand it is not one of the best anime for anime fans in Japan.
Girls’ Last Tour Season 2 Release Date?
There is no confirmation for a second season from the anime. We see that the source material is not enough for a new season. On the other hand, the target in disc sales has not been reached and there is not enough popularity in Japan. The fact that the manga is complete indicates that there is no point in promoting a manga with a new season. According to the result of our evaluation, we think that the anime will not have a new season. However, the anime world is full of surprises; we’ll let you know when a second season is announced. The average production period for animations is one year; since there’s no renewal, it doesn’t seem possible to see a new season of the anime until 2022. We recommend you the popular anime series Kono Oto Tomare! and Grand Blue in the segment of the life genre.
