ENGI found a gem in Full Dive: This Ultimate Next-Gen Full Dive RPG Is Even Shittier than Real Life!, as the anime series continues its promise in a showcase of how life is when a game goes beyond its confines. With only a few episodes before Season 1 ends, here is what we expect to happen and whether or not there would be a season 2.
The story goes around Hiroshi Yūki, a high school student, who plays virtual reality massively multiplayer online role-playing games or VRMMORPGs. Hiro in his games wanted to see if there are new games in a games store when the game store manager, Reona Kisaragi, forced him to purchase Kiwame Quest, a game. When he put it on, he realized that there’s something peculiar about the game, it’s too realistic.
While in the game, it looks, feels, and appeals to the senses like everything is real; like one is stepping into a whole new different dimension. It is as if one goes into a portal of some sort. When you’re hit in the game, it hurts in real life as well. It’s not your usual VRMMORPG, it cannot be casually played at all. The reward of the game is this: the sense of accomplishment.
From the pages of the Japanese light novel series of the same name by Light Tuchihi with the illustrations of Youta, and the seinen manga series by Kino, both of which are still ongoing, the question of whether there would be another season of Full Dive awaits.
As of the time of writing, there is no confirmation from ENGI or from Kadokawa or just any party concerned with Full Dive and its production on whether there would be a season 2. The doors cannot be closed just yet, however, as producing a whole new season could take time for them. Sometimes, it even takes years before a sequel can have a green light.
Looking at the chances of Full Dive, it is possible that it would have a season 2 because of its consistency in both the ratings and viewership. There is also more material from the light novels and the seinen manga considering that both are ongoing and are rather young publications as well. That gives the anime series more basis for future projects.
The anime series could be streamed online on Funimation where the premium access subscribers have the privilege of a week of earlier streaming of the latest episodes of the animes under their roster for the price of $5.99 per month or $59.99 a year. As for the English Dubbed version of Full Dive, there is no news released yet.
Full Dive releases episodes weekly every Wednesday at 10:30 PM JST/ 6:30 AM PT/ 8:30 AM CT/ 9:30 AM EST/ 2:30 PM BST.
