It’s been seven long years since Kantai Collection:KanColle Season 2 was announced at the end of the season one finale but then it fell into radio silence. Fans of the series had almost given up hope but now we know when the second season is going to air.
Unfortunately, you’ll have the rest of the year to wait as KanColle season 2 is slated for Fall 2022. But hey… you’ve waited seven years already, what’s another nine months, right?
The announcement was made via Twitter as well as at the Chinjufu New Year Special Live 2022 event.
MyAnimeList describes the anime as follows:
With the seas under constant threat from the hostile “Abyssal Fleet,” a specialized naval base is established to counter them. Rather than standard naval weaponry, however, the base is armed with “Kanmusu”—girls who harbor the spirits of Japanese warships—possessing the ability to don weaponized gear that allows them to harness the powerful souls within themselves. Fubuki, a young Destroyer-type Kanmusu, joins the base as a new recruit; unfortunately for her, despite her inexperience and timid nature, she is assigned to the famous Third Torpedo Squadron and quickly thrust into the heat of battle. When she is rescued from near annihilation, the rookie warship resolves to become as strong as the one who saved her.
Despite the news, no promotional trailer was revealed for the new season quite yet but at least you all have your hope restored!
