Well with volume 29 of Btooom! dropping and the end of the series being announced a promise of a big announcement on May 9th 2016 has fans excited in anticipation. The first anime covered volumes 1-9 so we now have 11 volumes of new material. Anime season 2? A movie? OVAs? What do you think?


I doubt season 2 to be honest. It's more likely the manga ending at this rate.


I agree with Stark.

Just so you can see that it can't be announcing the manga is ending here is a link when it was announced that it was going into the final arc.

I agree with @neugenx. it has to be the announcement for a second season as the manga ending was announce a while back. I don't think they would use the 20th volume just to announce a Pachinko machine. so yeah I say it's a second season.

There are other things it could be other than an anime TV series or a pachinko machine (movie, OVA, live action series, spin-off manga, etc.).

If it did get a second series, it would probably set the record as the lowest selling standard length anime to get a sequel. (I had to add "standard length" as Diabolik Lovers actually sold worse, but got a sequel, which sold far better, although still not great).



The possibility of a second season is possible you even said it your self with Diabolik Lovers selling poor and getting one. The other things you mention are as also possible but we just have to wait and see.

Even if there is a 0.00001% chance of something it is "possible". I'm saying it is rather improbable.

Diabolik Lovers was a less expensive to produce short series, and was primarily intended as a promotional vehicle for the game series. While I have not seen it, I suspect it also had lower production values (and thus cost per minute) than the Madhouse-produced BTOOOM!.

While how much a series improves the sales of its source material certainly factors in to whether it gets a sequel, a full-length series typically at least has to fall into "at least it wasn't a total write-off" territory.

Given that a typical single cour anime costs around $2 million (US), that's a lot of additional copies of the manga that would have to be sold to make up for only low triple digit media sales, and probably little in the way of merchandise licensing.

I agree with the AncientOne

You have to understand the anime industry of Japan to figure out which titles gets a second round or so .We can only wish for certain titles to get one and if not we move on.

I got the sense Btoooom! wasn't liked much. Plot went by faster then a race car and just ended with no resolution, it was a promotional thing. I did sort of enjoy the idea and some elements, but it disappeared about as fast as it a appeared.

A second season would be great, but even a movie or OVA would be good. I'm up to vol:10 of the yen press manga and really enjoyed the anime. It's totally underated IMO, especially when there is so much junk anime out there that sells by the bucketload.

If it is, I expect it will replace a pachinko machine as the standard for disappointing announcements.
