Unbreakable Machine-Doll is a Japanese anime based on a light novel written by Reiji Kaitō and illustrated by Ruroo. Its serialization began in November 2009, and it has a total of seventeen volumes. The light novel gained popularity due to which its manga adaptation also started in April 2010 and an animated adaptation made by studio Lerche in 2013.
Unbreakable Machine-Doll is an exciting and entertaining anime to watch, primarily because of its adorable main character. Fans have done everything possible to pressurize the studio into producing Season 2.
However, there are some rumors which will hint if Season 2 will be released or not. So, without any further ado, let’s start talking about Unbreakable Machine-Doll Season 2.
What Happened So Far In Unbreakable Machine-Doll
The story is set in the early 20th century, in a different historical version of the United Kingdom. Scientists develop a technology called “Machinery,” which allows them to give intelligence and life to mechanical dolls. These dolls were invented to use as a military weapon. An institute named Walpurgis Royal Academy of Machinery was established along with this invention. In this institute, puppeteers are trained to handle the mechanical dolls. As the number of puppeteers and dolls grows, the applications for these Automatons increase and the military starts using them too.
The anime revolves around Raishin Akabane, an aspiring puppeteer, and his machine doll called Yaya. Raishin wants to enroll in the Walpurgis Royal Academy but fails the entrance test every year. Once in four years, a battle is conducted between the top puppeteers at an “Evening Party,” and the only way left in which Raishin can enroll in the academy is by defeating one of the top students. They will be participating in the competition. Raishin’s main motive is to enter the school to avenge the people who killed his family members.
What Is Going On With Lerche?
Lerche is a Japanese studio founded in 2011 as an animation brand of Studio Hibari. After the production of season one, studio Lerche remained active and worked on many notable projects, including Assassination Classroom season one and two, Danganronpa 3: The End of Hope’s Peak High School, Scum’s Wish, Classroom of the Elite, and Toilet-Bound Hanako-Kun. They are currently working on the production of Rumble Garanndoll.
What Do We Know About Unbreakable Machine-Doll Season 2 So Far?
Almost eight years have passed since the first season was released, but the studio nor the writer has made any official announcement about Season 3. The anime has not been canceled, but it has not been renewed either.
However, rumors have started which claim that the anime will soon be canceled.
What Are Fans Saying About Unbreakable Machine-Doll Season 2?
There were many untied knots in the first season’s finale, due to which after it had ended, fans began demanding a second season. However, fans are becoming infuriated because they think a second season won’t come out, as many rumors say.
Although years have passed since Unbreakable Machine-Doll season one ended, fans haven’t given up on Season 2. They admire the anime’s plot, characters, and art and couldn’t stop themselves from starting a petition for the show’s renewal.
Fans have not forgotten about the anime either, as they have been posting creative tweets on Twitter, asking for Season 2.
Will There Be Unbreakable Machine-Doll Season 2?
Unbreakable Machine-Doll was popular soon after its release, especially in Japan. It was rated 7.10 by 137,740 users on myanimelist, an average rating, but many anime with this rating on the platform have gotten Season 2. There is also enough source material for producing Season 2 as there are seventeen volumes available, and the first season only covered the first three volumes of the light novel.
An OVA of six episodes was also released after the first season, from December 25, 2013, to May 28, 2014. The OVAs increased the anime’s popularity and fans’ hopes for Season 2, and since the first season ended on a cliffhanger, fans thought the studio would be completing the plot with season two. However, nothing was said about it from the producers.
Recently, there have been many rumors claiming that the anime will be canceled. One of the main reasons for the rumor is the Light Novel on which the anime is based, finished on July 25, 2017. The producers already didn’t show interest in Season 2, and the Light Novel has ended too, further reducing the chances of a second season. The first season was probably created to boost the sales of the light novel, but since the light story has ended, there is no reason for creating its Season 2.
Furthermore, although anime did not sell very well, the Blu-ray and merchandise both sold poorly. The light novel volumes had low sales too. The anime was not as successful as a studio would want it to be in order to create a second season. Moreover, the studio has been busy working on more popular projects, Toilet-Bound Hanako-Kun, and others, which indicates they’re probably lost interest in producing Season 2 of Unbreakable Machine-Doll.
In conclusion, the chances of Unbreakable Machine-Doll Season 2 are extremely low unless there is a spark in its demand and recognition, which would encourage the creators to produce season two.
When Will Unbreakable Machine-Doll Season 2 Be Released?
There are very low chances for the renewal of Unbreakable Machine-Doll. Since the officials have not announced it is being released, there is no release date available.
What Can We Expect In Season 2 Of Unbreakable Machine-Doll?
Season 1 comprises twelve episodes which are why many important details are omitted. Fans became very curious about the technologies behind the dolls, as it was one of the main factors which provoked their interest in the anime. Season 2 would most likely explain the history of the dolls and their creation in more depth.
Nevertheless, the second season would have some fantastic fights, lots of harem, and more adorable moments of Yaya.
