‘Plunderer’ brings a fascinating notion to its fore—a mere number determined one’s worth in its dystopian world. Although it offers a lot more than this concept later one in its first season, it’s this idea that initially piques your interest. With what follows, ‘Plunderer’ becomes more of a character-driven fantasy drama that also involves a few spells of Ecchi here and there. Its bright and colorful art style reflects on the diversity of its characters and its well-detailed backgrounds capture the essence of its bleak backdrops. Along with these, even its background scores and themes are pretty memorable. ‘Plunderer’ may not be exceptional in any way, but is entertaining nonetheless. After a pretty long run, its first season has now come to an end and if you’re wondering when its next season will come out, here is everything you need to know.

Plunderer Season 2 Release Date: When will it premiere?

‘Plunderer’ season 1 premiered on January 9, 2020, and with a total of 24 episodes, it finished airing on June 25, 2020. As you may already know, its first season is a two-cour season but its runtime was not split into two different halves. Despite initially receiving a bit of a backlash because of its controversial scenes, ‘Plunderer’ has garnered a pretty decent fan following. Moreover, many have also appreciated it for its undertone of dark themes surrounding class divides and dystopian societies. So considering its popularity and its decent rating on most platforms, ‘Plunderer’ seems to have a good chance of returning.

The animation studio behind ‘Plunderer’ is the lesser-known GEEKTOYS, which has only created 3 other anime in the past. Out of all of its previous anime adaptations, the studio hasn’t renewed any of them for a second season. But since ‘Plunderer’ happens to be one of its best creations, it is possible that it’ll make an exception. ‘Plunderer’ is an adaptation of a manga series of the same name written by Suu Minazuki. The manga has been in publication since December 2014 and so far, it has a total of 15 published volumes. And since the mangaka has been consistently creating content, we can expect two more volumes of the manga to be available by the end of 2020.

Compared to the source material, the anime is quick-paced and manages to cover almost 10 volumes in its runtime of 24 episodes. Since only 5 more published volumes are available for now, the creators of the anime only have enough content for a single-cour 12-episode season. So only if a 12-episode season is finalized, we can expect ‘Plunderer’ Season 2 to release sometime in 2021. If not, fans of the anime will have to wait a bit longer for its renewal. Any official news regarding its release will certainly be updated here.

Plunderer English Dub

The English dub for the first season of ‘Plunderer’ is available on Funimation and Amazon Prime. You can also stream it on Hulu with its original Japanese audio and English subtitles.
