Release date for Season 2 of the anime “Darwin’s Game”
There is no exact information about the planned 2nd season of the series. The ratings of the season 1 of the anime are quite good, the viewer is immersed in the plot, lives with his hero all his battles, which means the director should think about how to please fans with new series. But the viewer’s desires are not always satisfied.
It is believed that work on the new season will begin only in the fall of 2021 and its premiere will take place, respectively, closer to the second half of 2022. We are waiting for confirmation of this information.
Anime “Darwin’s Game”: which characters in the title role?
- The young 17-year-old guy Kaname Sudo by nature is not capable of harming anyone. He studies, communicates with peers – his life is no different from any high school student. But once in the Game, Kaname had to accept its rules: in a duel, you either win or die. Each player has a specific sigil. Our hero is able to reproduce in his hands any object that he touched earlier. The rules are simple, but does he want to participate?
- Kyoda is a friend of Kaname who, by the will of fate, knows about the Game firsthand. The guy tried to stop Kaname from joining the Game, but did not have time to explain anything to him. All that Kyoda can help a friend is to intercede for him in his first fight. The act is worthy of a real man, but the guy was killed. In the Game, Kyodo was endowed with the ability to see the auras of all participants – Kaname’s aura was the strongest.
- 16-year-old Shuka Karino knows everything about the Game, because she has been her player for a long time. The girl has very high combat characteristics, she is not afraid of death and easily enters the battle. Seeing a new participant in Kaname, she became interested in him, because he managed to defeat the first opponent.
- The smart age Rain Kashiwagi is another character. She is only 13 years old, but the girl easily collects information about the participants. Her ability is to know the exact location of those around her. Rain does not like being called a child, as she does not consider herself at all. The girl’s motto is to run, and not try to fight the enemy.
The plot of the anime “Darwin’s Game”: what was and what will be?
Kaname Sudo receives invitations to participate in the free “Darwin’s Game”. During the battle, which takes 1 hour, communication with the outside world is impossible – only through a special application. The best option for salvation is to run away until the time of the battle is over.
The main rival of the protagonist was a man dressed in a panda, the mascot of the local baseball team. The man attacked Kaname with a knife and tried to kill him. The fear and horror that gripped the student quickly brought him to his senses: now he does not get out – he is in the game.
Realizing that it is impossible to get out of the Game, Kaname begins to analyze what is happening and collect the necessary information. Points are awarded for each victory, an opportunity to get a random prize is opened, while points are deducted when receiving assistance during the battle and other conditions. And most importantly, each player has his own ability. But how can all this be stopped?..
