The highly emotional anime ‘To Your Eternity’ has been renewed for season 2 and this week, the release window has finally been confirmed online.
One of the best things about anime is the variety of content available to users from around the world.
On any major platform, you have the option to go from one epic adventure series that makes you scream to a tragic love story that will make you cry.
In 2021, fans watched with teary-eyes as Brain’s Base’s hit adaptation of Fumetsu no Anata e, a.k.a. To Your Eternity premiered with an incredible first season.
However, as one door closes, another opens – with the release window for To Your Eternity season 2 recently being confirmed online!

To Your Eternity renewed for season 2…
The announcement concerning To Your Eternity season 2 was shared on August 30th, 2021, only a few hours before the season 1 finale aired in Japan.
Anime renewals are typically dependent on two factors; source material and popularity. Thankfully, To Your Eternity had enough of both to secure a second anime season.
According to Monsters and Critics, the season 1 finale of To Your Eternity adapted up until Volume 6 chapter 54 in the manga series.
However, a total of 16 Volumes across 146 chapters have been published in Japan – meaning that there is enough source material for at least one, if not two, more seasons of anime!
To Your Eternity also received extremely positive reviews from both fans and critics alike from around the world. At the time of writing, the television series is scoring an impressive 8.7/10 on IMDB, 4.7/5 on Crunchyroll and 8.42/10 on MyAnimeList, with the latter consisting of more than 196,000 individual reviews.

To Your Eternity season 2 release confirmed…
In addition to confirming the sequel series, the official To Your Eternity Japanese website revealed that season 2 will release as part of the Fall anime slate in 2022.
This has recently been reaffirmed by the series’ official website, with a new promotional image being shared – see below.
“The TO YOUR ETERNITY Season 2 Teaser Visual has arrived! An original work by character designer Koji Yabuno, the artwork depicts Fushi the immortal with a gentle smile on his face. What new encounters await him? Stay tuned to find out! TO YOUR ETERNITY Season 2 is set to begin broadcast Fall 2022.” – Blog post, via anime-fumetsunoanatae.com.
Whilst a specific date has not yet revealed, fans should expect season 2 episode 1 to air on Monday, October 3rd or Monday, October 10th.
This would not only be in accordance with the start of the Fall broadcasting slate for worldwide streaming, but also maintains the same programming block in Japan as the first season.
The quick turnaround for season 2 is not only thanks to expert planning from the production team at Brain’s Base, but the availability of source material.
As previously mentioned, ten complete manga volumes are available to be adapted, which significantly shortens the production timeline for any anime project.
However, fans should note that the episode number for the sequel season has not been confirmed. Season 1 consisted of an unusual 20-episodes run; so will this continue into season 2 or will production switch to a more traditional split-cour broadcast?

Potential plot for season 2…
Spoiler warning: This section will give a brief overview of upcoming story arcs from the manga that are expected to be adapted in season 2.
Assuming that a second season would also cover a similar amount of source material to the first instalment, we would expect the following arcs to be adapted in season 2:
The Guardians Arc: Chapter 56 – 62
Uralis Kingdom Arc: Chapter 63 – 70
Bennett Church Arc: Chapter 71 – 82
Renril Arc: Chapter 83 – 116
Adapting up until chapter 116 would not only be enough for an entire anime season, but would also set up a potential third season that would cover the series’ ‘Second Act’ a.k.a the Present Era arc.
Opening the second season would likely be The Guardians Arc, where four decades have passed and Fushi has been alone on a deserted island ever since Pioran died of old age. However, he comes to meet both Hayase’s granddaughter and a group of ‘Guardians’ who see Fushi as a deity.
