MEGALOBOX is a beloved anime series in the segment of life and action genre released on many streaming platforms in 2018. The anime about boxing is actually based on a manga series written by Chikara Sakuma. It was made by TMS Entertainment, one of the largest anime studios in Japan. The studio has also created many popular anime such as: dr. stone and fruit basket in recent years. We also know that unlike most studios, their productions often get follow-up approvals with significant viewership and Blu-Ray sales. While it is broadcast on many online platforms such as Netflix† hulu† Megalo Box, also found a spot in crunchy rolls and Funimation† In this way it became very popular in a short time. The first season of the anime originally aired between April 6, 2018 and June 29, 2018 and consisted of 13 episodes. After more than two years, fans are still looking forward to a new season. The series has been extended for a second season†
What was the storyline of the anime?
Anime about sports is always a favorite of the viewers. The audience can’t jutsu like Naruto (Naruto), can’t stretch its arms like Luffy (One Piece), can’t destroy the world with one blow like Saitama (One Punch Man), but can start boxing like Ippo (Hajime no Ippo), can start playing basketball like Sakuragi (Slam Dunk), and can start playing volleyball like Shouyou Hinata (Haikyuu!!). We can feel the characters’ difficulties and internalize their struggles. Sports anime generally increases our motivation for life. Megalo Box is also a good choice among this anime.
Our main character, Joe, or nicknamed Junk Dog (JD), is a young boxer who wants to profile himself in the boxing world. Although he is a talented, enthusiastic fighter, at the same time he is little more than a boxer in the suburbs. The boxing matches he plays are fake matches where the winner is always determined. But one day he got the chance to have his name written in golden letters in the boxing world: Megalonia Boxing Tournament! He enters the tournament by issuing a fake ID. In this tournament, he set his sights on getting to the top and becoming the boxing champion. But is his main goal to become a boxing champion? Or is it to defeat Yuri, the last winner of the Megalo tournament, even to sacrifice everything?
Will there be a second season of the anime?
Good news for enthusiasts. The studio has renewed the anime for one second season† The sequel will continue the story seven years after his departure. The staff of the original anime series Megalo Box announced on July 2, 2019 that Megalo Box Season 2 is in development at Anime NYC. Megalo Box’s production company TMS Entertainment has posted a teaser video on its Twitter account.
When is the second season release date?
Although the series has been approved for a new season, no official Publication date it came out. However, it is more than a year since the extension was announced and we believe that preparations for the new season have come to an end. In addition, the studio has managed to get new season approvals for many anime. They are preparing for the second season of successful productions such as Dr. Stone and also the new anime series. We also know that there are delays due to Covid-19. The second season of the anime will probably air in the spring of 2021 and can be released by mid 2021 on online platforms such as Netflix.
- The last update on February 15, 2021† The release date is set for April 2021.
Season 2 Plotline Expectations
At the end of the first season, Joe defeated Yuri in the infamous Megalonia tournament, praising the title of “Gearless Joe”, but what about now? From the teaser we can deduce that the story takes place after seven years. So how was this seven years?
In the original story, Rikiishi died before Joe had a chance to fight him, he was traumatized and he started having serious boxing problems. Likewise, Junk Dog can face his physical trauma. After all, something must have happened in the last seven years. Probably something terrible.
At the end of the first season, after the fateful match between Joe and Yuri, the Megalonia Tournament was announced. The second season may focus on the darkness of what it means to be the best. With the creative vision of Moriyama and TMS Entertainment, anything can happen. The second season of the series can immerse you in the world of Megalonia and expose your audience to the mysterious truth and what has happened to Joe for the past seven years.
