Attaining an IMBD and MyAnimeList rating of 7.2 and 7.3 respectively, Chrome Shelled Regios or (Kokaku no Regiosu in Japanese) is an anime adaptation of a Japanese light novel series written by Shushuke Amagi and illustrated by Miyu. The show is highly praised by the fans who like to follow the post-apocalyptic anime niche due to its storyline and alluring animation style, which will make you feel as if you, yourself are stranded in that world.
Moreover, there have been several manga adaptations starting from the one drawn by Miyu which got published in Dragon Age Pure. This was followed by an adaptation, illustrated by Nodoka Kiyose and got serialized in Monthly Dragon Age. A third Manga adaption was laid out by Watari and published in Beans Age Magazine. In total the show in its garb have 46 volumes comprised of both manga and light novels.
The show aired from January 11, 2009, to June 20, 2009, carrying 24 episodes for its season 1.
Chrome Shelled Regios Season 2 Release Date
It has been 12 years since the first season of the show got released and amassed a status of its own, resulting in fans’ exacerbated desire for a new season. What is the possibility of season 2? You may ask. The answer to this question is that no one knows with certainty, since no official announcement regarding the renewal has been confirmed by the makers and the speculation regarding its exact renewal date is not grounded in evidence.
Whether the season gets renewed depends on two factors that we need to consider. Firstly, the propensity of the anime to source various elements, which the makers found plausible, from various volumes have rendered season 1, directionless and messy. If the anime, focused more on systematic and staged adaption from the original source material, then there would have been abundant content from which the anime could fuel up for few next seasons.
Secondly, we can consider the popularity of the show. As mentioned earlier the IMBD rating of 7.2 and MyAnimeList ranking of 7.3 makes the anime a decent watch than its counterpart ‘God Eater’, the story of which is also based in a post-apocalyptic world but only has an IMBD rating of 7. Also, thousands of copies of its Blu-ray\DVD were sold.
From this, we can reach the conclusion that the probability of the show’s renewal is pretty much there but it will have to involve a fresh and unique idea to atone for the mistakes of the previous season and start the story from scratch.
