Like many 12-episode anime series, The Case Study of Vanitas is wrapping up soon. As this was arguably one of the best anime of the Summer 2021 Season, many fans will be wondering if they can expect a Season 2 of The Case Study of Vanitas, and when.
Noé and Vanitas have already come a long way in this first batch of episodes. They started off unable to stand each other and while this is still true, they're allies now and they're slowly coming to trust each other. Noé is obviously intrigued by the enigma that is Vanitas; a very obnoxious human and self-proclaimed vampire doctor, without a plausible motivation for his interest in helping vampires.
In the latest episodes, Noé and Vanitas are hard at work to solve some mysterious vampire disappearances. Along the way, they make new friends and allies. Meanwhile, some of the characters we had considered to be allies, turn out to be a bit shady.
This alone is plenty of drama for another 12-episode batch. Besides, the manga of Vanitas no Karte is currently ongoing. This means that even long-time fans must wait to find out why Noé kills Vanitas, or at least why he claims so at the end of the anime premier.
Thankfully, studio Bones won't leave us hanging. While no Season 2 has been announced, Season 1 of The Case Study of Vanitas won't stop at 12 episodes.
This is a split cour anime, meaning that the next batch of 12 is going to air in the near future, likely during the Winter or Spring 2022 anime Season. There is already an entry for it on MyAnimeList, so it's likely to air in the very near future.
So far, the fantasy show has shown real promise, with stunning art, an upbeat vibe, and an excellent plot. The show airs on both Funimation and Hulu, and it already has an English dub, meaning that creators truly invested in it.
Therefore, depending on the course of the manga, even more content after the second cour of Season 1 finishes airing is very much possible. We'll update you with more information if any official announcement is made.
