Read to know all the latest updates of Parasyte: The Maxim season 2: release date, the upcoming plot, and everything to know.
Parasyte: The Maxim Season 1 Recap
Kiseijuu: Sei no Kakuritsu (in Japanese) translated as Parasite: Maxim is a Japanese horror sci-fi anime. The manga series from which the anime has been derived is a work of Hitoshi Iwaaki.
In the first season of Parasyte: the maxim, the life of the protagonist teenager Izumi Shinichi has been followed. The boy was living a rather peaceful life, till when the parasitical aliens start taking over the world. These parasites are tiny little creatures physically. But once they enter the body of humans through the nose or ear, they can take over the body of the human host. However, during the invasion night, luckily the parasite was not able to enter Izumi Shinichi’s brain through ears or nose. So, the parasite entered him through his hand and gets buried there itself. Hence, the parasite retains its own physical space in Shinichi’s arms.
Since the parasite was not able to take over Shinichi’s brain, the boy is not under the complete control of the parasitical alien. This leads to a major conflict between the human and the parasitical alien. However, they both come to the terms that they both need each other to remain alive. As the only way to kill the parasite is by killing the human host. Therefore, this leads to an unlikeable alliance formation between Izumi Shinichi and the parasite alien.
When is Kiseijuu: Sei no Kakuritsu Season 2 coming? Release date
The anime premiered on October 9, 2014, and with a total number of 24 episodes. The anime series was produced by the Madhouse studio, which is well popular for producing famous anime such as Death Note. However, Madhouse studio never confirmed renewing the Parasyte season 2, after the release of the first season. Later, the whole first season was made available on Netflix in the month of May 2020. Since then, the assumptions of next season have gained hyped among the fans as the anime became quite popular. However, Netflix has not yet confirmed the Parasyte: The Maxim Season2 officially. Still, the commercial success of the anime has increased the probability of an official announcement for another season. If in any case, Netflix considers renewing the Parasite: The maxims, we can expect the anime till the end of 2022.
What we can expect in Parasyte: The Maxim season 2?
One of the main reasons, why the anime didn’t get another renewed season was because the anime ended with the manga series plot. That means that there is no more written plot for the upcoming seasons. However, we can expect the show can start with a new plot, and with fresh characters. Since the anime also explores the philosophical relationship between humans and nature in the first season. We can assume that Parasyte: The Maxim season 2 will also follow the same theme with a new plot. Keep yourself updated with the latest news of Parasite: The Maxim Season 2 release date.
