The predominant problem is that the anime TV sequence is an unique story.

(See beneath for extra particulars concerning the books.)

And a Lycoris Recoil sequel is simply doable if the story writers go away an open door for a continuation. Presumably, super-terrorist Majima gained’t have fully destroyed the DA group by the tip of Lycoris Recoil Episode 13. The Alan Institute can be left standing even when one among its leaders dies.

Nor can Chisato die by the point the credit roll though different character deaths are probably. There have definitely been many dying flags for Chisato so it will depend on how the primary season resolves the issue together with her synthetic coronary heart.

On the damaging facet, the anime was hardly ever featured within the Top 20 of Crunchyroll’s hottest anime record. There had been even days when it was essential to manually search on the Crunchyroll app simply to search out the TV present!

As such it’s tough to say whether or not the anime manufacturing committee (Aniplex, BS11, and ABC Animation) may have Lycoris Recoil renewed for a second season since worldwide streaming income is the most important issue influencing monetary success these days. Presumably, the producers haven’t pre-planned the Lycoris Recoil Season 2 manufacturing out upfront since they might first wish to see whether or not the monetary numbers from the primary season justify a Lycoris Recoil sequel.

Anime studios like A-1 Pictures and the primary employees are contractors. They are booked out years upfront for anime initiatives.
