Has 86 Season 2 been confirmed? 86 Season 2 has yet to be officially confirmed, so there is no release date for the second season of this anime series.
The question is whether there is a season 2 of 86? And when is? 86 Season 2 Coming Out?
Here’s everything we know so far about whether or not 86 anime season 2 will take place in 2022, as well as its likely release date.
The 86 anime, known as Eiti Shikkusu in Japan or Eighty Six in some countries, is based on a successful light novel.
The 86 light novel series was written by Asato Asato and illustrated by Shirabii†
86 is a fantastic military anime series with mecha and science fiction elements, so it’s no wonder fans are asking if 86 will have a season 2.
The main character of this anime series is Vladilena Milizebetter known as Lena†
The story is about Lena, a military officer in the San Magnolian army. She is an outspoken activist against the mistreatment of the country’s Colorata minority and the deliberate deception of the general public by the government of the Republic.
How many seasons of 86 are there? There is only one season of the 86 anime. That means there isn’t a season 2 of the Eighty Six anime yet.
The first season is all you can watch as no movie or OVA has been made for the 86 series yet.
The first season of the 86 anime, with 23 episodes, premiered in Japan in April 2021. Since then, the series has gathered a sizable fan base who are still hoping for 86 to get a season 2.
Over the past six years, I’ve researched hundreds of anime sequels. Some examples are:
So read on to find out if 86 will return for another season and the likely Eighty Six Season 2 release date.
Will there be a season 2 of 86?
We need to look at two factors to determine whether there will be an 86 Season 2 in 2022 and the likely Eighty Six Season 2 release date.
The first factor is the source material and the second is how much profit the first season made.
We will now examine both to see if 86 anime will have a season 2 or not.
86 Season 2 Light Novel & Manga
For the 86 anime, the source material is a light novel.
How many parts of 86 are there? As of January 2022, there will be ten light new volumes of 86. There is also a manga adaptation, a spin-off manga series, and a prequel manga.
Is the 86 light novel ready? The 86 light novel is underway and the end is not yet in sight. Since the series only started four years ago in 2017, it will be at least a few more years before it ends.
Asato Asato published the last volume in Japan on June 10, 2021.
86 Volume 11 Release Date? The release date for volume 11 is February 10, 2022. It should also be released in English in 2022.
Where to start reading 86 after the anime? The 86 light novel after the first season is part 4.
So, if you want to continue the story where the anime ended, check it out 86 light novel volume 4 in English†
The first season has parts 1 through 3 adapted, so the second season should probably use parts 4 through 6.
That means there is enough content for at least two more 86 seasons in 2022.
I highly recommend getting the 86 light novels† Many fans prefer books to anime, and it’s the only way to continue the story in 2022.
Eighty Six’s profitability and sales figures
How well did the 86 Blu-ray sell? The 86 Blu-ray sold approximately 2,000 copies per disc. That’s a decent number for 2021, even though I was hoping it would be at least 3,000.
2,000 isn’t bad, and while Blu-ray sales aren’t that big of a deal these days, they help with the odds of a new season.
How well does the 86 light novel sell? 86 Volume 9 sold approximately 20,000 copies, and 86 Volume 10 sold approximately 18,000.
The 86 light novel is selling reasonably well, but I’m curious how well volume 11 does as it should show the full anime boost.
How many copies does 86 have in print? As of 2021-06-01, the Eighty Six series had 1,300,000 copies in print.
It is not in the top 200 most popular light novel series of all time.
How much merchandise is there for 86? There are about 15 figurines and models, which is not a low number. More than 200 pieces of merch have also been made for this series so far.
Some characters are cute, like this one Mini Lena and this Lena figure† But this 86 Juggernaut (long range cannon type) model looks the coolest.
I think it’s clear by now that this series didn’t flop and earned some money†
It’s too early to tell if it’s made enough money for a second season† It will be much easier to say how well this anime is selling in the next 3 to 6 months.
I highly recommend to check out 86 merchandise if you are a fan of the Eighty Six series. Amazing things have been made for this franchise.
86 Season 2 Release Date
As of January 2022, 86 Season 2 will not have a release date as it has not yet been confirmed. However, we should get news about the second season of 86 by the end of 2022 if it happens.
The earliest release date for 86 Season 2 is 2023.
There’s plenty of source material for a second season, and it looks like this series has sold quite well so far.
This series also seems popular on social media, and even the official Twitter account has almost 110,000 followers already.
That means streaming has made good money off it, which is critical to the possibility of a new season in 2022†
So a new season of 86 has a good chance of happening, but we’ll have to wait a little longer to be sure because the series isn’t even officially over yet as we’re missing the last two episodes.
On average it takes about two years for a run of two jobs to get another seasontherefore 2023 as a release date sounds about right.
Even if it releases in 2023, we should still get the announcement of Season 2 of 86 in 2022.
Production issues and the fact that Aniplex is on the production committee are two things to worry about for the second season of this anime.
Aniplex is looking for big hits, and why 86 made some profit, it’s not a hugely profitable series either. We’ll be able to see in the next 6 to 12 months whether this series gets a second season or not.
Checking out the 86 anime merchandise or 86 light novels if you want to support the Eighty Six series or continue the story.
You can also see if other anime series from fall 2021 are getting new seasons:
