Sabikui Bisco Season 2: Renewed or Cancelled + Release Date Predictions 

Sabikui Bisco Season 2, when will it happen?

Post-apocalypse in anime is a regularly used trope and has provided a perfect setting for numerous series over the years.

Whether it’s Dr. Stone or Made in Abyss, the mystery behind the disaster and its effects of it leading to a dystopian world with its own surviving rules forms key plot points of these series.

One such anime was privy to the Winter 2022 slate as an adaption of Shinji Cobkubo, Sabikui Bisco hit the small screens.

The premise is set in post-apocalyptic Japan, where the land has been plagued by a “Rusty Wind,” which, for its namesake, rusts away anything it touches.

According to the government, the reason behind the deadly nature of the wind is believed to be the spores of mushrooms.

Consequently, the mushroom tribe called Mushroom Guardians is criticized and prosecuted for the horrific catastrophe. 

However, contrary to society s’ belief, the mushroom is not a supplement to the rusty wind and is, in fact, a source of reducing the rust.

The story follows a young mushroom guardian named Bisco Akaboshi who, despite public opinion, grows mushrooms all over the country to prevent the effects of the deadly wind.

His actions have led to a new label for him known as “Man Eating Mushroom,” and even a bounty is offered for his capture.

Bisco s’ mission is to find the legendary Sabikui mushroom, which is the ultimate cure for the rusting disease. His quest has two travel partners who are a giant crab, Akutagawa, and the kind doctor Milo Nekoyanagi.

Can Bisco succeed in finding this elixir of life mushroom amidst the prejudice labeled against him is the central plot of the show.

Sabikui Bisco was a relative success, and fans who enjoyed season one wonder if there will be a second installment.

Sabikui Bisco Season One aired from 11th January 2022 to 29th March 2022 for 12 episodes.

As of writing, there is no update from studio OZ on the renewal of Sabikui Bisco Season 2.

Production studios consider various financial and commercial metrics before announcing a renewal.

The good news is original creator expressed the hope for an anime sequel by “Team Rust-Eater Bisco” by tweeting, “I’m sure we’ll meet again someday. Let’s go on a journey together. On my back!

Source material should not be an issue as more than seven volumes are available for the creators to produce Sabikui Bisco Season 2.

But the downside is financial; the anime could not provide a significant boost to the light novel sales, and the Blu-ray discs were too low to enter Oricon’s weekly sales ranking.

As mentioned earlier, Sabikui Bisco Season One was above-average at best, and consequently, it could not break into the top-rated Winter 2022 slate.

Post-apocalyptic animes tend to get the initial inquisitiveness from the fandom; hence its IMDB user episode ratings were again decent at best.

Even if we consider the ratings and reviews of season one as passable, a crucial factor for renewal will be the availability of studio and source material.

Studio OZ is a new and upcoming production house, and as of writing, it is unclear what their future schedule looks like.

It has been over a year since Sabikui Bisco season one aired, and coupled with no projects announced from OZ, it’s safe to assume that the studio does not have the facilities to handle multiple animes at once.

Furthermore, the studio may decide to move on to new and far more lucrative projects, which could push back the chances of Sabikui Bisco Season 2 happening.

All in All, it could be a multiyear wait before any updates on Sabikui Bisco Season 2 trailer and Sabikui Bisco Season 2 release date gets announced.

In the finale episode of Sabikui Bisco Season One, “Bow and Arrow Duo,” Milo and Bisco meet again, but the latter seems transformed.

His arm is glowing, and his body is exuding spores causing Milo to surmise that Bisco is half-human and half-Rust-Eater.

Bisco assaults the Kurokawa Tetsujin, yet it recuperates after each assault, and Tirol reasons that the Tetsujin’s “pilot” lives inside the iron veil, and that ought to be the focal point of their assault.

 Pawoo volunteers to part the mask, and after Bisco concurs that she can have anything she needs on her return, she, out of nowhere, snatches and kisses him. 

The cover falls away, uncovering Kurokawa embedded inside the head, yet he proceeds to assault and immediately blinds Bisco with concentrated Rust. 

Supported by Milo, Bisco fires a bolt, killing Kurokawa and forestalling the Tetsujin’s fall to pieces.  A tsunami of Rust-Eater mushrooms sprouts and obliterates the Tetsujin and all the Rust nearby, including the disease inside Pawoo. 

Ultimately, the tremendous number of Rust-Eater mushrooms gives a boundless fix to the Imihama populace. Pawoo becomes the new legislative head of Imihama and pronounces freedom from the Japanese government while denouncing its mistreatment of Mushroom Guardians.

Sometime later, a hidden Bisco and Milo leave through the Gunma-Imihama line station and give the authority and his associate vials of the Rust-Eater infusion as remuneration for focusing on the abandoned mushroom. 

The duo heads off into the distance, intending to find a way to undo the Rust-Eater transformation, as Bisco does not wish to live forever (and because he keeps growing mushrooms on his body).

Sabikui Bisco Season One covered the first volume of the light novel, which means Sabikui Bisco Season 2 will begin by adapting Volume 2.

Despite saving humanity, many Sabikui Bisco Season 2 characters will be after Bisco and Milo.

To cure his unique condition, Bisco and Milo travel to the holy land of Shimane. But soon, they come face to face with the ambitious immortal monk Kelshinha.

 It takes Bisco by surprise and steals his stomach. No longer immune to the rust eaters, Bisco, along with his partner Milo, must infiltrate the heart of Shimane to regain their original bodies before he bites the dust in five days. 

Will this dynamic duo be able to recover what they lost and send Kelshinha packing?
