Will There Ever Be Plunderer Season 2?
The anime, Plunderer, is based on the manga series directed by Hiroyuki Kanbe. The number of seasons an anime can release is primarily dependent upon the source material and then its popularity.
The manga series entails 18 volumes until now, and it is still ongoing. So, for the Studio Geek Toys, there is enough material for Plunderer Season 2 to be released. There is a possibility that the Plunderer anime will be renewed for the second instalment as the first season received a great response from the whole world.
The anime was not only released in its native language, Japanese, but also licensed for the English translation to be available worldwide. FunimationNow has streamed the anime series in English speaking regions and also premiered two episodes on YouTube in many countries. As the response for season 1 was positive, there is a possibility that Plunderer Season 2 might be announced anytime soon.
