Unlike other anime that are getting sequels like One-Punch Man and My Hero Academia, another anime could get another season but with an exception.
According to Crunchyroll, Japan recently released an app game based on the video game violent manga series Btooom!, created by Junya Inoue. The app game is called Btooom! Online and this is where 6-8 players can kill each other for chips by using tiny bombs called BIMS. Unlike other series like Sword Art Online, Log Horizon or .hack//Sign (usually pronounced Dot Hack Sign). the story is very brutal and death can be gruesome. Based on scenes I seen, it’s like playing Bomberman and Call of Duty.
This is where things get interesting, Japan mentions that if this app game makes it to the top 5 in the top 5 domestic apps list, they will consider making a second season. The first season of the anime left fans with a cliffhanger and the manga kept going.
The anime was licensed and dubbed by Sentai Filmworks and the books were licensed by YenPress.
This makes you wonder, how would feel if anime companies did something like this. In my opinion, if they did this with Bleach: Brave Souls, if they promised that they will do the Thousand-Year Blood War if this game made it top 5, we could get a conclusion to the anime.
But that’s my thoughts, what do you guys think? Would you willing to support Japan if they did this in your area? What do you think about the Btooom! news?
