It has been about 15th years since the anime fans of this show are demanding a new season. But sadly, there is still no new season. However, as fans of anime, we always want to know whether there is any hope for bringing back our favorite anime. Air Gear has not been doing very well lately, and here is everything you need to know about it.
Ito Ōgure’sŌgure’s anime adaptation of the same name, known in Japan as Kaminoyu, is a mecha action series. It was published in 2003 and had 37 volumes. The manga concluded with 37 volumes in July 2012. There were enough fans that the author wanted to create an anime about it, which occurred in April 2006
Why Is Air Gear Season 2 Not Renewed Yet? Will it be canceled?
Even though viewers have seen a lot of sports anime, the idea of Air Gear (inline skating) was interesting. That is why people have been asking for a sequel for fifteen years. However, one of the main reasons why it is hard to get a renewal is low ratings and revenue. Even though this anime has amazing features, it was not able to earn as much.
The series was danked due to its unpleasant and uneventful narrative. The first season had good animation, and people liked the sound. People also liked some of the character arcs. The good parts of the show could not make up for the bad parts. As a result, it received an average rating from critics and audiences. The series struggled to make enough money.
Air Gear Season 2
The first season of Air Gear didn’t do well in ratings and sales. So it will be hard to get the second season renewed. But because Toei Animation is a successful studio, they might not want to take on a project that can’t make money. However, the sequel might get renewed if any other studio wants to do it.
Is There Any Chance For Air Gear Season 2?
Despite the fact that Season 1 of the anime was a financial failure, it had a large following. Social media and online petitions can help preserve or restore your favorite program these days. Many anime was greenlit as a result of audience pressure in the past. Other animated series, like Full Metal Panic! and Berserk, took between 10 and 20 years.

As of today, Air Gear still has a lot of potentials to be a good anime. It might not do well if it is made into a sequel, but it could do well if the creators work on a storyline and stay loyal to the original manga. As of now, Toei Animation has a full calendar with numerous projects in development. As a result, Air Gear Season 2 may not be produced anytime soon by the studio. However, we hope that other studios will be interested in the second season, which will raise its chances of renewal.
Is There Enough Source Material?
Air Gear Season 2 is an adaptation of the manga series. Because the manga may not have any more books, Air Gear Season 2 may end. The Air Gear manga series has a total of 37 volumes. Air Gear Season 1 of the television show adapted the first 12 volumes and left some gaps that we can fill in by making more episodes. The anime OVAs that are two made up the story from Volume 16, 23, and 24.
Hence, there are still 22 volumes of the manga that haven’t been adapted. There is enough data for a second season. If Season 2 gets renewed, there will be enough source material for a third run. We hope the anime has another chance to prove itself.
Air Gear Season 2: Release Date
In case Toei Animation (or any other studio) renews the sequel in a couple of years, the new season might arrive early. Even then, the release date might fall around 2022 or later. The best thing to do is wait for an official announcement. We will update this section with the date when it comes out.
