Accel World Season 2 is a highly anticipated sequel, fueled by the success and popularity of its first season in 2012. So, it’s no surprise that fans are still wondering about the renewal of this anime for a second season.

Here’s everything we know so far regarding whether or not there will be a new season of Accel World and when it will be released.

The anime series “Accel World” is based on a popular light novel of the same name, first released in 2009. The “Akuseru Wārudo” light novel series is written by Reki Kawahara and illustrated by HiMA.

“Accel World” is a great sci-fi action anime with virtual reality and gaming elements, and people worldwide love this series. The story is about Haruyuki “Haru” Arita, a socially awkward student who finds solace in virtual reality gaming. When Haru meets Kuroyukihime,, she introduces him to the Brain Burst program.

The anime television series Accel World has had one season. It was directed by Masakazu Obara and animated by Sunrise. Additionally, there is an animated film based on the series titled “Accel World: Infinite Burst.

There has been no word on whether or not the director or studio will return for Accel World Season 2.

The first 24-episode Accel World television anime series premiered in Japan in April 2012. Since then, the series has amassed a sizable fan base that is still waiting for Accel World Season 2 Episode 1 or some sort of sequel.

Will There Be A Season 2 Of Accel World?

Accel World Season 2 has not officially been confirmed. The first season ended in 2012, and while there has been interest among fans for a continuation, there hasn’t been any announcement regarding a second season.

The author of Accel World mentioned wanting to push for another season in 2014, but the animation studio at the time, Sunrise, was working on other projects. Since then, there haven’t been any significant updates on the potential for a second season.

Considering the length of time since the first season ended, it appears unlikely that a second season will be produced in the near future.

For those who are impatient for Accel World Season 2 and want to learn more about what happens next, you can begin reading the light novel series.

if you want to continue the story from where season one of the anime ended, have a look at Accel World Light Novel Volume 5 in English.

The first season adapted only volumes 1 to 4 with some volume 10 content mixed in out of 27, so if renewed, a hypothetical Season 2 could likely cover Volumes 5 to 9.

I highly recommend checking out Accel World Light Novels. Many fans prefer books over anime, and it is the only way to continue the story in 2024.

I will update this post with any news or a release date for a new Accel World anime project from the official Accel World Twitter account or Crunchyroll.
