Will There Be Alice & Zouroku Season 2?
The show was really popular when it premiered four years ago. It managed to create its own place with a rating of 7.11 by 41k members on its MAL group. The beautiful storyline gained this show a lot of followers. Moreover, the manga hasn’t been finished, and the studio still has so much content left uncovered. So, the possibility of Alice & Zouroku Season 2 taking place is really good. Now, the fans only have to be patient and wait for an update from the officials.
Alice & Zouroku follows a girl named Sana, who looks like an average little girl but she has a special ability called “Alice’s Dream.” Most of her childhood was spent in a laboratory where she acted as a test subject because of her powers. Her powers allow her to create anything using her imagination. One day she escapes from the laboratory and encounters a stubborn old florist named Zouroku Kashimura in a convenience store. Sana’s pursuers catch up with her all too quickly, but Zouroku saves her and takes her with him.
In the last episode, fans saw Alice escaping from wonderland along with her friend, and then in the final moments, there was a grown-up Alice holding flowers and thanking Zouroku. Well, it’s obvious that old age has shown its might in the manga, but nothing happened like that in the anime yet. Therefore, the odds will return again for more adventures when Alice & Zouroku Season 2 hit the screens.
