The, arguably, best original anime this season just ended on March 27, 2023. But a day before that, they already announced the second season of High Card at AnimeJapan 2023. Aside from that announcement, nothing comes out aside from a new visual teaser for the second season.
The series is the original work that comes from a franchise created by a collaboration of three big companies, Kadokawa, pachinko developer Sammy Corporation, and animation studio TMS Entertainment
Their story is written by Homura Kawamoto (Kakegurui franchise), and his younger brother Hikaru Muno (Kakegurui novel). They are inspired by the movie Kingsmen while writing the story. It’s no wonder that fans find the series like the mix of Kakegurui X Kingsmen.
Visual Teaser Of Season 2
The High Card anime just revealed that they are working on the second season. At AnimeJapan 2023, the visual teaser was revealed showing Finn with his nemesis, Black Knight, who kills his parents.
Do you see something weird? No, your eyes are fine. The visual has a typographical error. It’s funny because the staff realized the mistake after a day it was posted.
Currently, there is no news related to the second season of High Card. Looking at the first season. It takes almost two years for the series to be broadcasted. It is estimated that the second will have to wait for at least a year.
But, with good reception, the estimated date can be faster than expected. Who knows? Just stay tuned for further information.
