Black Rock Shooter has received a lot of mixed reviews over the years where some have either called it utter garbage and the others have claimed that it is somewhat of a masterpiece. When it comes to the story of the show, all of its plot holes and missing links are quite evident.
However, despite its extremely short runtime of just 8 episodes, its overall story turns out to be far more fulfilling compared to its OVA. Here’s everything you need to know about a potential second season of Black Rock Shooter!
When’s the release date for Black Rock Shooter season 2?
Black Rock Shooter’ season 1 premiered on February 3, 2012 and ended on March 23, 2012. Unlike most other anime, it only has 8 episodes in its first season with each one of them being 23 minutes long.
‘Black Rock Shooter’ is actually based on characters illustrated by Huke. These illustrations were later turned into a music video by producer Ryo. And soon after this, the title of the song became an inspiration for the anime.
The reason why the anime only has 8 episodes is that there isn’t anything more to its story. Even then, many fans wanted a continuation of the series and a few of them even started online petitions to request for a new one.
There were also some rumors regarding its renewal back in 2017, but till date, there have been no official confirmations regarding it. After all these years, a season 2 seems less of a possibility but even then, if there is any news regarding ‘Black Rock Shooter’ season 2 release date in the future, we will surely update it here in this section. Stay tuned!
What to expect from the plot of Black Rock Shooter season 2?
Artemis, an AI rogue that was supposed to help automate the global workforce, instead chooses to fight against humanity in the year 2062. Twenty years have passed since the Artemis Project collapsed, and Empress, a young girl, awakens in an underground research facility located at a specific base.
She is one of three remaining guardians of humanity. She has no memory of the past. She only knows what the colonel of peace-building forces tells her. Her task is to destroy the orbital elevator that connects Earth and the moon. It is currently being constructed by Artemis. The mechanized army mass-produced on Earth will attack Earth if she fails to do so.
She is stopped by Dead Master and Strength who she believed were her allies. Artemis’ unmanned forces and Smiley, a member of the “Educational Institution” religion, are also standing in her path. The colonel and Empress make their way onto the orbital elevator with the colonel. But what awaits them? Because the show hasn’t been renewed yet, we do not have any information on the plot. If the makers release anything, we will update this space. Stay connected!
