Recap of Prison School Season 1
Prison School season 1 follows the story of five male students who are the first to be admitted to the previously all-girls Hachimitsu Academy. However, their excitement is short-lived as they soon discover the strict and oppressive rules of the school, enforced by the Underground Student Council.
The boys are subjected to harsh punishments and humiliation, leading them to plot their escape. The season ends with the boys successfully escaping but with the threat of the Underground Student Council still looming over them.
Release date and platform for season 2
Prison School was released in 2015, a few years before Grand Blue. It’s quite an old Anime by today’s standards, but certainly, one to watch. While it’s been a long time since the release of the first season, there is still hope for a new season. Let me explain why:
- Prison School was a very popular and successful Anime.
- Prison School Season 2 would be much wanted among fans.
- Other Anime like Full Meta Panic or Classroom of the Elite have released additional seasons after long breaks of 2 years+
We would say given the Animes popular we would say that Prison School Season 2 release date would be somewhere around late 2023. However, Prison School Season 2 could most certainly begin production (if it has not already) by 2024.
The source material is written
Only the first 12 chapters of the manga are covered in the first 12 episodes of Prison School Season 1. There are 277 chapters in 28 volumes of the original manga. Thus, 200 additional chapters are needed to produce Prison School Season 2 or additional seasons.
Author of mystery and horror books Naoyuki Uchida questioned Tsutomu Mizushima about Shirobako and Prison School Season 2 through Twitter in 2015. “Thanks for watching continuously since SHIROBAKO,” he said. Regarding the second season, I’m not sure. Although I feel uncomfortable, I still want to do it.”
Hiramoto is working on other things
Akira Hiramoto is currently hard at work on his brand-new manga for Kodansha’s Monthly Shonen Magazine, which debuted in March 2022.
Unfortunately, there is currently no official release date for Prison School season 2. However, it has been confirmed that the season will be released on the same platform as the first season, which is the Japanese television network Tokyo MX.
Fans are eagerly anticipating the announcement of a release date and hoping for more information about the plot and characters in the upcoming season.
Plot Predictions and potential storylines
While there is no official information about the plot of Prison School season 2, fans have been speculating about what could happen next. Some predict that the season will pick up where the first season left off, with the boys still trying to escape from their all-girls prison.
Others believe that the season could introduce new characters or storylines, such as a rival school or a new warden. Regardless of what happens, fans are excited to see what the creators have in store for the beloved anime series.
