Orient Season 2 Confirmed


Orient anime series’ first season has finally concluded today after a week-long delay. Season 2 is now confirmed to be released in July 2022.

Orient, the anime adaptation of Shinobu Ohtaka’s manga, is the last series of the Winter 2022 anime slate to come to an end.

After a delayed broadcast last week due to an earthquake near Japan, the penultimate episode and season one finale will release back-to-back today.

Shortly after the finale, Oriental Season 2 is confirmed

The Orient website confirmed that season 2 of its series was in production just hours after the season finale premiered on Japanese television networks.

Previously, Musashi and company had already been expected to return to television before the announcement. Because anime series are typically renewed based on two factors. The availability of source material and the popularity of the show, both within Japan and abroad.

There is good news for Orient fans since Shinobu Ohtaka’s original manga series is still in production. So A.C.G.T. still has plenty of story material to work with. Orient Episode 12 covers chapters 18 to 42 of the Daito Mine arc, which was originally a manga story that covered chapters 18 to 42.


There are fourteen manga volumes, 121 chapters, and 14 manga chapters published in Japan as of March 2022. Therefore, there is enough source material right off the bat for three TV seasons.

Apparently, the Awaji Island Recapture Operation Arc, started in chapter 43. And it continues through chapter 47, is the next story arc in the manga series.

Its popularity, notably the difference in domestic and international audiences, was the only potential caveat to this. Although Orient has done well in Japan, it hasn’t done as well with fans around the world.
