Will Killing bites return for its second installment? Well, here are all the updates regarding the release date, trailer, plot, cast, and more.
A fabulous creation of Liden Films, Killing Bites (Kiringu Baitsu in Japanese ) is a Japanese action, sci-fi anime tv series based on the manga series of the same title. Shinya Murata has written the manga, and Kazuasa Sumita has illustrated it. 16 volumes of the manga have been serialized in Hero’s Inc.’s seinen manga magazine so far. Liden films adapted the manga as anime tv series. It consists of 12 episodes and premiered between January to March 2018 in Japan. The series became widely popular and applauded by the viewers. The 1st season left the fans at the cliffhanger, so they are desperately waiting for the second season.
Below are all the updates regarding the second installment so far.
The release date of Killing Bites season 2. When will it air?
The production house has not shown the green flag to the second serving of the series so far. However, we are expecting that makers will renew the series for the second season soon.
The reason for not renewing the series for the season is the lack of source material. The original manga had 10 volumes, and 7 volumes were used to create 1st season, but now sixteen volumes have been created. So we are expecting the second season. Do not expect it any time sooner. If the production of the series starts this year, then we are likely gonna see it somewhere in 2023.
The cast of Killing Bites season 2. Who will be in it?
Going by how the 1st season ends, we will surely see our protagonist Yūya Nomoto. He was the investor of Hitomi and had feelings for him. However, she killed him. He will definitely return to fetch revenge from Hitomi.
Next, we will see our 2nd protagonist Hitomi Nomoto. She is the Rattle(honey badger), a hybrid who follows the order of her guardian Shido. She seemed killing Yuya, so she will be there when Yuya comes after him to take vengeance.
Our next returning character is Reiichi Shidō who is the legal guardian of Hitomi. He holds the powers to control the hybrid matches. He ordered Hitomi to kill Yuya making him his enemy.
We are not sure about the other characters, however, we are definitely going to see some new characters in season 2.
The plot of Killing Bites season 2. What to expect in season 2?
The story of season 1 focuses on the two protagonists Hitomi Uzak and Yūya Nomoto.
Four Zaibatsu Conglomerates of Japan sponsor underground death matches between Therianthropes, genetically engineered hybrids having the power to transform into animals. Yūya Nomoto, unaware of his friend’s intention, joined them in a plan of abducting and raping a girl Hitomi. They kidnapped him, but she being an animal hybrid, killed everyone except him. Later she forced him to drove to the underground battlefield where Yuya became his investor.
Later several battles took place and the underground battles become legal and opened for normal humans too. In the end, we saw when Yuya was about to confess his feeling to Hitomi, she killed him on the orders of Shido, her lust as well as his guardian. However, he was alive and planning to create more hybrid to take revenge from Shido and Hitomi.
Well, season 1 left us with cliffhangers and several questions are popping in our heads.
