Orient Season 2: Release date, Storyline and updates

Orient is one of the most popular Japanese Anime Television Series. This series received huge popularity within the premiere of just a few episodes. 

And now, fans are enthusiastically awaiting the release of the second season. Will it be renewed or cancelled? Which characters will be included/excluded? Here’s everything you need to know about Orient season 2!

Is there enough source material to produce Orient season 2?

Yes. For the Orient series, there are fourteen manga volumes, 121 chapters, and 14 manga chapters published in Japan, as of March 2022. Therefore, there is enough source material right off the bat for three TV seasons.

Apparently, the Awaji Island Recapture Operation Arc started in chapter 43. And it continues through chapter 47, which is the next story arc in the manga series. Its popularity, notably the difference in domestic and international audiences, was the only potential caveat to this. 

Although Orient has done well in Japan, it hasn’t done as well with fans around the world. So does that imply the show will not receive a greenlight for season 2? Let’s find out!

Orient season 2 renewal status: Will it be renewed or cancelled?

Orient season 2 has already been renewed. The Orient website confirmed that season 2 of its series was in production just hours after the season finale premiered on Japanese television networks.

Previously, Musashi and company had already been expected to return to television before the announcement. Because anime series are typically renewed based on two factors. The availability of source material and the popularity of the show, both within Japan and abroad.

And so, there is good news for Orient fans since Shinobu Ohtaka’s original manga series is still in production. So A.C.G.T. still has plenty of story material to work with. Orient Episode 12 covers chapters 18 to 42 of the Daito Mine arc, which was originally a manga story that covered chapters 18 to 42. Read the release date down below. 

Orient season 2 release date: When’s it scheduled to premiere?

The Orient Season 2 release date is confirmed. The series is releasing on July 11, 2022. The second season is officially titled Orient: The Battle of Awaji Island. This announcement was made by the Orient: The Battle of Awaji Island trailer PV that was released on June 8, 2022.

Orient season 2 cast: Who’s going to be in it?

The voice cast is going to be pretty much the same as the previous season. However, the makers have released an additional cast list as well. And so, there will be multiple additional Japanese voice actors added to the Orient Season 2 cast. 

Orient Episode 12 introduced new characters Tatsuomi Uesugi (Tomoaki Maeno), Kanetatsu Naoe (Natsuki Hanae), Masayuki Amakasu (Yoshiki Nakajima), Akihiro Shimazu (Koki Uchiyama), and Katsumi Amako (Gakuto Kajiwara). 

How many episodes will Orient season 2 have?

The number of episodes has not been announced yet. However, it’s possible that Orient Season 2 could be multiple cours. Since the Awaji Island story arc is the longest in the Orient manga series, we can expect multiple cours. However, nothing’s official at the moment. 

Orient season 2 trailer: Is it out yet?

Yes, the official trailer is out. Watch it down below!

Further, on May 18, 2022, another Orient Season 2 trailer was released. It introduces the members of Tatsuomi Uesugi’s band of warriors and showcases fresh footage teasing the Awajishima Battle arc. 

Where to watch Orient? 

You can watch the anime series on Crunchyroll. 

Will there be an Orient season 3?

Most likely, yes. As mentioned above, there’s enough source material to produce another season. So, we can expect an Orient season 3 for sure. However, nothing’s confirmed at the moment.
