The Ones Within Season 2 Release Date & Renewal Status

The Ones Within Season 2 Release Date & Renewal Status

The manga’s official Twitter announced The Ones Within anime on May 23, 2018, later confirming it as a TV series on September 13.

The anime debuted on July 7, 2019, with 12 episodes and an OVA on February 7, 2020. Although the studio and production team have not yet made any official statements, fans are eagerly awaiting Season 2.

Unfortunately, there’s no news on The Ones Within Season 2’s renewal as of October 2023. Speculation is challenging, and optimism should be cautious.

Given the nature of the anime industry, we assume that The Ones Within will not be returning with a sequel. Mediocre at best, the show didn’t make enough profit to guarantee renewal.

That said, we’ll update this article if there’s any new information.

Is There Enough Source Material For A Sequel?

Is There Enough Source Material For A Sequel?

The chance of The Ones Within returning is slim because the first season covered 37 out of 48 manga chapters. Although the manga is ongoing, it hasn’t released a new chapter in nearly three years, leading fans to lose hope. Some even fear it may never continue.

As of October 2023, the manga only has 48 chapters, which is not enough for another season. The hiatus has gone on for three whole years, which is really concerning.

At this point, the best we could hope for is the manga to continue, let alone getting an anime adaptation.

What Will Happen In The Ones Within Season 2?

What Will Happen In The Ones Within Season 2?

A wave of mysterious vanishings plagues Japan. Despite diligent police efforts, no clues emerge. All victims share one trait: teenagehood.

Meet Akatsuki Iride, famous for gaming “Let’s Play” videos, particularly “The Ones Within – Genome.”

Rumors suggest the game transports teens to another world. Akatsuki becomes a believer when he’s sucked into this realm, joining other vanished teenagers.

Together, they must conquer the game’s challenges to return home. But facing dark secrets and hidden pasts stands in their way.

The next season will continue their adventures, introducing new characters and potential villains. We might also see some of the mysteries from season 1 be revealed.

Which Studio Will Animate The Next Season?

If we ever get a season 2 of The Ones Within, I’m sure it will be Silver Link that adapts it. This is because they are the ones who worked on the first season.

Again, the chances of renewal are very low because of profitibality issue. So, Silver Link will most likely shelf it. But, in the off chance the manga gains popularity, they might chance their decision.

That said, it has not been officially announced that Silver Link will handle the next season. The producers might hand off the project to another studio. However, I’m sure fans wouldn’t like that because it will most likely be a downgrade.

Where Can I Watch The Ones Within Season 2?

Where Can I Watch The Ones Within Season 2?

Currently, the first season of Nakanohito Genome is only on Crunchyroll and Funimation. We assume that the upcoming season will also follow suit.

So, we can expect The Ones Within Season 2 to be available to stream on Crunchyroll and Funimation.

However, it must be noted that not all regions have access the above mentioned platforms. So, using a good VPN service is suggested to enjoy this anime.

Alternately, you can also resort to buying the Blu-ray of the new season once it is released. While a bit costly, it offers you premium watching experience.

Conclusion

In conclusion, the future of Nakanohito Genome remains uncertain. The manga has been in hiatus for three years, and the first season wasn’t exactly well received.

Given the low popularity and profitability of the series, we predict that The Ones Within season 2 is not possible. At this point, you can take up the manga and read from chapter 28, (or 38 if we include the OVA) to continue the story.
