Relife is an anime series based on the manga version written by Mr Sou Yayoi. TMS ENTERTAINMENT Studios create the animation of the show. The first season released on July 2 2016. However, the manga is released for readers since 2013.
From the day it’s the first season has been ended. Fans are desperately waiting for it’s the second season to show up. Sou Yayoi is the person behind giving us this great anime; he is the writer and illustrator of this anime.
Release Date: Relife, season 2, when it will be released?
From July 2, 2016, to September 24, 2016, ReLife season 1 came to an end marking a total of 8 episodes. On September 24 final episode was released.
After some years later to continue the storyline and to give anime a meaningful ending, special 5 OVA episodes have been released. Special episodes were given a different title naming ” Relife: kanketsu hen”.
Currently, the official announcement of a release date for the second season is not made yet. But if we analyse the ending of the first season it does not shows a high possibility for the release of the second season.
The primary reason for which official release date for season 2 is not declared yet is due to OVA episodes, yes you read it correctly. The OVA episodes answered all of the unanswered question left in the first series. Also, the only reason why special episodes were released was to give anime a meaningful end.
So all in all conclusion is. The special episodes are meant to complete the storyline, and no such official release date has been announced about season 2, which makes it pretty clear that chances of season 2 are pretty slight.
But worry not, We will update this section if we found any changes in the release date.
