We last saw Nakanohito Genome around a year ago. And the fans all around the globe have been anxious since then to find out more about his story and other teenagers who went missing mysteriously. But we’ll only get to know about their story if The Ones Within Season 2 gets greenlit. And unfortunately, we don’t have any such news regarding its renewal.
Although the first season got support from fans, it’s still quite underrated. It had only 12 episodes, yet the character development and plot twists were mind-blowing. “The Ones Within” follows the strange story of Iride Akatsuki, who is a typical teenager obsessed with video games. But due to unknown events, he gets teleported to an entirely new world. Luckily he finds other kids of his age who then figure out how to get back to their natural homes.
Silver Link Studio is behind the show, explaining why the first season was so visually pleasing. Despite an enthusiastic fandom, chances of getting a second season seem very bleak. In case you don’t know, the anime is based on the Manga of Ozora! And if we compare the 12 episodes of the anime to the manga, there is plenty of content that is left to explore.
Moreover, the good news is that the Manga is not complete! The writer is still working on it. So, yes, The Ones Within Season 2 can happen! If you haven’t watched the show yet, you can stream it on Funimation.
The Ones Within Season 2Release Date
Even after two years, we have no updates regarding the 2nd season. However, nothing to get upset about! Because firstly the Manga is still not complete. The writers might be waiting for the manga to finish first. So, according to the story, they can shape the subsequent seasons in line.
Sadly we can not predict how long this is going to take. But hopefully, it will be soon! Only 4 out of 9 volumes have been adapted by the studio. The writer of the Manga releases two books annually. So, if we get lucky, The Ones WIthin Season 2 might come out by the end of this year or in 2023!
The first season has a score of 6.74/10 based on over 6,100 votes on MyAnimeList. And deducing from this audience’s response, there is a good chance of a sequel happening.
The Ones Within Season 2 Cast
As there is no confirmed lineup of characters for the second season. We can’t say anything about its cast. But if the writers are willing to continue with the story, then naturally, the main characters of the first season will come back. In that case, you can expect the following to star in The Ones Within Season 2:
- Karin Sarayashiki
- Kaikoku Onigasaki
- Himiko Inaba
- Anya Kudou
- Yuzu Roromori
- Zakuro Oshigiri
- Makino Aikawa
- Akatsuki Iride
Depending on the story development, there might be new additions to the cast. If you want to find out the new characters, you can give the original manga a read as the second season will also derive its content from there. However, the main story will revolve around the characters mentioned above and their new adventures. As far as the voice cast is concerned, we hope that the same actors will return for both Japanese and English dubbing.
The Ones Within Season 2 Plot
In the first season, children all around Japan started disappearing into thin air. At first, it seemed like they were normal kidnappings, but when the police weren’t able to track the kidnappers, that is when things got serious. And all the main characters of” The Ones Within” were victims of these kidnappings.
Our lead character, Akatsuki Iride, was a gamer who had a strong passion for gaming and recording himself while playing it. At that time, a game named “The Ones Within-Genome” got famous. However, many suspected that this game teleported you to a completely different world.
Iride ignored all these baseless rumours and decided to play this game. And when he started playing it, the stories proved to be true. In the fictional world, he also finds other seven stranded teenagers. All of them then meet Paca, who tells them about the challenges they’ll have to face to get out of that place.
To get back to their world, all 8 of them had to play a game. And whoever disagreed with playing it would get locked in “The White Room” for the entirety of the game. But this game was not as easy as it sounded. Strangely they had to battle their own deepest and darkest fears and secrets. If the second season is to come then, it will also focus on the gang and how they coped up with their trauma.
