After waiting for the pitched aerial battle between Hiro Shishigami and Ichiro Inu-Yashiki, most anime fans probably desire to watch Inuyashiki Season 2 in the future. Unfortunately, the Inuyashiki: Last Hero anime adaptation is based on the Inuyashiki manga, which has already reached an ending. But is there enough source material still left for the second season of Inuyashiki?
Manga creator Hiroyo Oku first began serializing the Inuyashiki manga back in January of 2014. The manga ending is contained in Chapter 85, and the final book, Volume 10, was released in September of 2017.
As of Episode 9 of the anime, the story has caught up with manga Chapter 58: Plane Crash, which is contained in Volume 7. The anime is scheduled to end with Inuyashiki Episode 11, which will cover the events of the last three volumes.
The mangaka is best known for the Gantz manga, which had an anime adaptation that deviated completely away from the source material. Fortunately, that’s not the case with the Inuyashiki anime adaptation by studio MAPPA, which has been manga-accurate. (It will be interesting to see if American President Donald Trump makes a guest appearance like in the manga.)
The only problem with following the Inuyashiki manga so closely is that Oku wrote an ending that makes it very difficult to create Inuyashiki Season 2 unless they finish Episode 11 with an anime original ending. (See the ending of this article for spoilers and discussion on potential stories for the anime sequel.)
Inuyashiki Manga Volumes Have An English Translation
The anime for Inuyashiki is currently only available for international online streaming via Amazon Anime Strike. Besides signing up, the only other option is to read the English translation of the manga. Thankfully, Crunchyroll Premium provides all of the chapters.
It’s also possible to buy the complete manga collection in paperback format. All of the volumes are currently available for sale, except for Inuyashiki Volume 10, which comes out on December 19, 2017.
