Release date for Season 2 of the anime “Gleipnir”
The anime caused a storm of emotions by viewers. This became clear by the number of comments and reviews on the Internet. Moreover, people spoke about the project both with admiration and with negative coloring. On the one hand, the plot is unusual, the characters externally worked out well. But what about the inside of the protagonists? Clair Aoki seems not just unpleasant, but a crazy girl, villains are typical antiheroes. But still there is something in the anime that catches and makes you watch the series to the end. Perhaps this is the whole charm of the project.
Official sources have not yet disclosed information about when work on season 2 will begin. Most likely, the coronavirus will continue to hold many of the projects “frozen” for a long time.
Despite this, we hope to see the new anime series in the fall of 2021. Recall that the production of season 1 took one year.
Anime “Gleipnir”: which characters in the title role?
- Shuichi Kagaya wants to be an ordinary teenager and not use his abilities. The peculiarity of the guy is to transform into a huge dog costume. Throughout the series Kagaya from a timid, kind guy turns into a bolder, more confident person who, each time, is better at managing his unusual abilities. After the reincarnation, Kagaya, in the form of a dog, has a revolver with 6 bullets, and thanks to the zipper on the back of his suit, anyone can enter it and begin to control the monster. In this case, the “connection” of both characters occurs, their memory and feelings are combined.
- Another anime heroine is Clair Aoki. Initially, the girl refers to Kagaya with contempt and arrogance, but over time, her attitude towards him changes. Clair is a strange, rude, emotional and arrogant, at first glance, girl. She was left alone, without her parents and sister. In order to find her missing sister, she is ready to do anything, even to kill. Upon entering the costume, Clair is able to take control of the Kagai’s body and feel what he feels.
- Nana Mifune – a classmate of Kagaya, has tender feelings for the guy. She received a recommendation to the university, but the girl understands that this is not accidental. Nana saw that Kagaya was constantly depressed and closed, so she was trying to help him and talk, but all to no avail.
The plot of the anime “Gleipnir”: what was and what will be?
Shuichi Kagaya no longer remembers what a normal teenager is. The secret depresses the guy, makes him weak, sad and withdrawn. And how he wants not to hear smells, not to turn into a monster with incredible strength. Why should he be chosen and why is he endowed with such abilities?
It seems that not a day goes by without Kagaya thinking about it. His friends, classmates do not suspect anything. But the incident that happened on a typical summer evening changed everything. Kagaya smelled smoke and ran to its source. The building was on fire, inside was a girl unconscious. The guy saved her, but instead of gratitude fell into the girl’s network. Clair Aoki managed to notice that it was not the guy who saved her, but the monster in the image of a huge dog. Now he’s on the hook.
The acquaintance of Clair and Kagaya was not accidental. The girl had a sister who, once turned into a monster, killed their parents and disappeared. Now Clair will do everything possible to find her. Too many questions need answers. And Clair knows who can help her with this – Shuichi Kagaya…
