Megalo Box (also known as Megaro Bokusu in Japanese) is a boxing anime television series. Written by Chikara Sakuma and produced by TMS Entertainment. The show was created to commemorate the 50th anniversary of a famed manga series called Ashita no Joe. In February 2018, a manga adaptation of Megalo Box, titled Megalo Box: The Twin Fists of Fate, was released and a couple of months later, on April 6, 2018, Season 1 premiered.
It was a hit among anime viewers, and hence, many are hoping for a second season. Here’s everything we know about the prospects of Season 2 thus far.
Megalo Box Season 1 premiered on April 6, 2018, and ran till June 29 of the same year. To the delight of fans, Season 1 was followed by the release of three special episodes, which were released between July 27 and November 22, 201
During NYC 2019, TMS Entertainment announced that its second season is now in production. The story of the second season will be set seven years after the events of the first season. In an interview, director of the series, Yo Moriyama, also confirmed the second season by saying: “I understand that there’s a lot of love regarding MEGALOBOX and I’m very happy about it. I’m also very happy to say that MEGALOBOX 2 is in development and we definitely wouldn’t want to disappoint the fans. I’m very much looking forward to it.”
To this, producer Moriyama further added: “There’s really not much I can say at this point. I’m really trying to give out a very different angle compared to the first MEGALOBOX. So I think we can definitely give fans something that is beyond their expectations.” As of now, a final release date for the series has not been determined, but we can expect Megalo Box season 2 to premiere sometime in October 2020.
