Otaku or not, there’s a high chance that you may have heard about the popular anime “Death Note.” If you are an anime freak, this very anime is among the list of your preferred Top 5 anime, and we’re certainly not wrong on that one.
To put it, Death Note is a Japanese manga series penned by Japanese writer Tsugumi Ohba and Taskehi Obata as the illustrator. The manga series became so popular that it was later adapted into an anime of the same title, released on October 3, 2006, comprising 37 episodes manufactured by Madhouse.
For those who haven’t heard or watched the anime yet, “Death Note” anime is considered a masterpiece even though it’s over a decade since the anime was out, and fans couldn’t help but be curious about Death Season 2. Several spin-offs came out, including Netflix’s live-action adaptation. However, it’s natural that fans still prefer the anime version and remain hopeful to this day that the second season will someday arrive, even if they have to wait for years for this masterpiece.
Here’s everything we know about the second season of Death Note.
What is Death Note about?
The story revolves around Light Yagami, a high schooler and a genius who one day picks up a strange notebook that fell from the sky. The owner of “Death Note” is Shinigami Ryuk, who grants the Death Note user to have superpower to annihilate anyone whose name is penned down in the pages of the book. The user, Light Yagami, uses the name Kira and seeks to kill anyone, primarily the criminals, to create a quiet community. He becomes so engrossed in eradicating the bad guys that he becomes evil himself and gains the spotlight from the police task force, directed by impenetrable detective L, to imprison him.
Death Note Season 2: Release Date
Death Note season 2 doesn’t have a release date. The future seems uncertain as the anime series had a satisfying ending and pretty much covered all the chapters from the manga. However, there was some speculation that a new story for Death Note has published in Japan’s Jump SQ magazine in 2020, but at this point, a second season of the hit anime may likely never happen.
The cast of Death Note Season 2
The main protagonist in the story is Light Yagami, other important characters are Shinigami Ryuk, Detective L Lawliet, Misa Amane, Nate River and Teru Mikami.
Death Note Season 2: Plot
In the first season’s finale of Death Note, there was a showdown between Light Yagami and his enemy Ryuk which the main lead Light Yagami lost, and it so happens that he dies. Note that this anime series has many twists and unexpected turns of events making the viewers extremely difficult to predict what’ll happen next. Did Light Yagami actually die after his name was written on the Death Note by Ryuk? You have to find out for yourself, and if you’re that curious, you can always watch the anime.
Additionally, the story gets even more enjoyable with the appearance of new Shinigamis other than Ryuk, and guess what? They also possess a Death Note. So apparently, Light Yagami is not the only wielder of the infamous book “Death Note.”
Doesn’t this sound intriguing to you? For your information, this anime isn’t just called a masterpiece or Greatest of All Times for the namesake. Now, one may think, what’s all this hype about an anime released in the early 2000s, but clearly, if you watch it, you’ll know why it’s prevalent across the globe.
Also, several rumors have been going around lately that Netflix might be working on something related to the hit anime series and is planning to release it soon. Still, as you know, Netflix’s live-action adaptation of the anime series was a total disaster, and we’d better not get our hopes too high, or so we think.
