The second season of Ao Ashi’s anime adaptation can benefit from both positive reviews and a wealth of manga sources; find out when season 2 will be released.
Sports-themed anime series is not for everyone, but for those who enjoy them, Captain Tsubasa has long been regarded as the best football (soccer) series.
With the airing of Aoashi over the previous two seasonal slates, however, that show has been noticeably dethroned for many sports anime viewers. Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end, and the series will reach its conclusion today.
Know When is Ao Ashi Season 2 Coming Out, Release Date, Update, Plot Story, Rating
Ao Ashi has not yet been officially renewed for season 2 prior to the conclusion of episode 24, but fans can be optimistic that positive reviews and the availability of source material will be enough to justify a second game – here’s everything you need to know.
Season 1 Episode 24 of AO ASHI: Release Date and Time
Ao Ashi episode 24, the season 1 finale, will air on Saturday, September 24.
Crunchyroll reports that the following global times will be available for the release of episode 24 “From Now”:

Thanks to Ashito’s “bird’s-eye vision,” the Esperion B team was able to break through Musashino’s impenetrable defense and score a goal to tie the game. Musashino’s side was perplexed by Ashito’s free-flowing movement. While Esperion was gaining momentum and preparing to win the match. Ashito’s success and development irritated striker Kaneda, who couldn’t hide his displeasure.

Esperion is challenging Musashino, who currently holds the top spot in the Tokyo Metropolitan League. What will happen in the deadly conflict between the two? Episode 24 Story is available on the official website.
Ao Ashi Season 2 Renewal Status
As previously stated, the company behind the popular football anime series, Production I.G., has not yet formally renewed Ao Ashi for season 2.
There is, however, plenty of source material available for the anime adaptation to turn into a second TV season. This is frequently what determines whether an anime series is developed further or is canceled indefinitely.
Episode 24 is not expected to be adapted until volume 12 chapter 117 of Yugo Kobayashi and Naohiko Ueno‘s original manga series. The good news is that 29 complete Tankobon volumes had been published in Japan as of September 2022. That is, assuming the series continues at its current pace. There would be enough material for not one, but two additional anime seasons.
Ao Ashi Season 1 Popularity
Then there’s the belief that Aoashi should be popular enough to warrant a second season at Production I.G. Prior to the season 1 finale, the anime is currently rated 8.1/10 on IMDB, 4.1/5 on Anime-Planet, 80% on Analyst, and 8.15/10 on MyAnimeList.
In addition to maintaining high ratings internationally, the anime helped to boost manga sales in Japan by reaching the top 20 on Oricon in April, May, and June of this year.
I can’t believe it’s already over, damn. Season 1 was like a prologue compared to the greatness that comes later. Hopefully Ao Ashi gets a season 2 asap. pic.twitter.com/usS2lTGnng

Given the positive reviews, increased manga sales, and ease of access to the source material, it should only be a matter of time before Development I.G. confirms that Aoashi season 2 is in the works.
Production I.G. has already scheduled three major anime productions for 2023, which fans should be aware of. FLCL Shoegaze, Fafner in the Azure, and Rakudai Majo are among the artists featured. There will also be an unannounced Psycho-Pass: Providence series.
These initiatives are likely to take precedence over Aoashi season 2 during the first half of 2023. Because of this hectic schedule. In general, fans can expect season 2 of the popular football anime to premiere on the Fall airing schedule in October 2023.
