Yasuke is an action and fantasy genre original anime series released on Netflix in the spring of 2021. The production period of the anime has been going on for quite some time. First announced in 2018, the anime finally met audiences. The series, not based on manga or light novels, was created by LeSean Thomas† The series creator also appeared with gun crushers† On the animation side there is: MAPPA, a successful studio. We also know the studio with Jujutsu Kaisenone of the trends of 2020, and Dorohedoro that also airs on Netflix. Netflix licensed production hit the screens on April 29, 2021 with the 6-episode first season. Viewers are now wondering if there is a second season from the anime.
What is the storyline of the anime?
A peaceful boatswain, once known as the Black Samurai, finds himself in the middle of the conflict when he takes charge of a little girl with mysterious powers. In 16th-century feudal Japan, an alternate reality reimagined with magic and advanced technology, a warrior named Yasuke witnessed the fall of Oda Nobunaga in battle against the army of warlord Yami no Daimyo in Honnō-ji.
Twenty years later, Yasuke puts his story behind him as a legendary ronin known as the “Black Samurai” and retires to a remote village as a skipper named Yassan. At a local bar, he meets a singer named Ichika and the sick Saki with mysterious magical powers. After an attack, Yasuke is ordered by Ichika to take the boy to a doctor. While protecting the little girl, he finds himself in a power struggle.
Will there be a second season of Yasuke?
From December 12, 2021at the time of writing, Netflix, Mappa or LeSean Thomas not yet renewed the anime for one second season† The fact that the anime has aired worldwide on Netflix and has a successful name keeps hopes alive for the second season. On the other hand, anime already enjoys strong popularity. Hopeful signals were given for the second season from the anime’s Twitter page. The anime team says this is just an introduction and their bigger purpose. It is difficult to accept this as an innovation for now, but it is undeniably a strong signal.
We hope these 6 episodes will serve as an introduction to this world and get you hyped for more. We have big plans for Yasuke. It’s just the beginning.

So when can a new season of the anime be released? It’s hard to answer this question because there’s no renewal yet, and the anime’s release three years after its initial announcement might make you think you’ll be waiting for a second season just as long as the first season. However, this is a misleading notion. We know animations and character designs take a long time in the beginning, but then the time it takes for a new season is about a year. If there is an extension, it is possible to see Yasuke second season in 2022† We will keep an eye on the official news and keep you informed. Stay tuned.
Is Yasuk popular enough?
For animes to gain approval for the new season, it is important how popular it is and how much it is viewed on online platforms. Series that don’t gain enough popularity usually don’t get approval for a second season. Yasuke’s official Twitter account is currently followed by 53,000 people, which is a huge number of followers for an anime. On Google we see an above-average search volume for anime. It seems that a strong audience is waiting for the new season of the anime, and the series deserves another season.
