Alice Gear Aegis Expansion Season 2, will it happen?
Animes are primarily based on manga or light novels, but often they are created as sales ploy to attract more consumers to a particular franchise.
Series like Beyblade, Digimon, Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh!, and Bakugan were simply created to increase the sales of their toys while simultaneously becoming a status symbol within kids.
Although with the onset of the digital age, creators have moved on from toys and merchandise with a focus on open source free-to-play video games.
Each year numerous such animes are released, and Spring 2023 was no different as studio Nomad s’ Alice Gear Aegis hit the small screens.
The premise is set in a world wherein Earth has been abandoned by humanity after a race of mechanical aliens called Vice drifted them into space.
Resigned to life in a starship forged by pieces of shattered moon, the hopes of humanity rests on the hands of a young women known as Actresses.
These women can wield weapons that can not only harm Vice but also have mechanical suits called Alice Gears, which can protect them against any alien incursion.
Can mankind survive the alien invasion with the help of Actresses and their enhanced abilities is the central plot of the show.
Alice Gear Aegis Expansion Season was received with poor reviews from fans and critics alike.
However, fans who enjoy the game and the anime series are wondering if there will be a second installment or not.

WHAT IS THE ALICE GEAR AEGIS EXPANSION SEASON 2 RELEASE DATE?
Alice Gear Aegis Expansion Season One aired from 4th April 2023 to 20th June 2023 for 12 episodes.
As of writing, there is no update from studio Nomad on the renewal of Alice Gear Aegis Expansion Season 2.
|Alice Gear Aegis Expansion Season 1||4th April 2023|
|Alice Gear Aegis Expansion Season 2||Yet to be Announced|
Production Studios consider various financial and commercial metrics before announcing a renewal.
Financially, the anime was created to promote the video game which it has with over 100k downloads.
As mentioned earlier, Alice Gear Aegis Expansion Season One failed to impress fans and critics with its ‘cute girl using mecha to fight alien’ trope.
The major criticism seems to be labeled at the tone of the episodes, which takes a slice-of-life approach by the end despite the franchise being action packed.
The only saving grace about Alice Gear Aegis Expansion is the animation and artwork which is expected of studio Nomad.
Whatever core premise the game revolves around is secondary to Alice Gear Aegis Expansion, as the show seems to assume that its viewers will have already gotten plenty of that in the game.
For any of the out-of-towners that are just popping in to be polite, though, the appeal of this one is limited unless you really want is time to chill and indulge in wacky antics with Gacha gals.
While the reviews and ratings are not in favour, a crucial factor for renewal is the availability of studio and source material.
Studio Nomad, albeit producing animes since 2004, have a very limited production schedule that operates on one anime per year policy.
Even popular animes like Dropkick on MY Devil need crowdfunding campaigns to get a second season, further indicating the studio s’s production capacity.
Furthermore, the anime has no source material such as Alice Gear Aegis Expansion manga or light novel, which in context isn’t a massive problem as creators could adapt storylines from the game.
Hence, considering the poor reviews and studio Nomad s’ production capacity, it’s highly unlikely that the series will be renewed for Alice Gear Aegis Expansion Season 2.
All in All, expecting any updates on Alice Gear Aegis Expansion Season 2 trailer and Alice Gear Aegis Expansion Season 2 release date could be a pointless wait.
ALICE GEAR AEGIS EXPANSION SEASON 2 PLOT
In the final episode of Alice Gear Aegis Expansion Season One, “Farewell, Nodoka Takahata!”, Nodoka tries to fight back with her powers but is saved by the Yotsuyu.
The Onariya s’ head office washes their hands of the experiments as they cite it’s been carried out by an individual research team while Narukozaka Factory has lifted its business suspension order.
Nodoka is prepared to leave Narukozaka Factory as her Actress license has become invalid and she bids farewell to everyone.
She promises to come back and reunite with her comrades by once again becoming an Actress.
The episode ends with the entire Narukozaka Factory saying their goodbyes to Nodoka as she leaves in tears.
Alice Gear Aegis Expansion Season 2 will most likely continue from where the first season left with a new mysterious organization coming to front.
How Nodoka makes her comeback to the Actress group will also be a key storyline.
Finally, will the Alice Gear be able to safeguard humanity as new and powerful aliens come to light?
