Not sure about the BD/DVD but the Manga sells very well, probably the reason this gets a second season despite how crap the first was. Its like the 7th or 8th best seeking manga this year atm.

Nope, but it's the 8th best selling manga series this year and there's also a live action movie coming out soon so the BD/DVD sales didn't really matter in this case.

The ranking of the manga sales this year (thanks to Westlo from animesuki):

*1 13,667,923 ONE PIECE (Continuous Show)
*2 *9,995,863 Nanatsu no Taizai (2nd Season coming 2016)

*4 *8,057,216 Kingdom (77 episodes aired)
*5 *8,007,223 Ansatsu Kyoushitsu (2nd Season coming 2016)
*6 *5,762,759 Haikyuu!! (2nd Season airing right now)

Spoiler tags, guys, you know better.

Cute name, Revenge.
>come into a sequel topic
>complains about spoilers from last season
I don't get the logic behind this, not at all. There are people who aren't aware of this series and just happened to stumble upon this announcement. Think of it as sort of an introduction or motivation to start the series. The spoiler tag is there for a reason, you know. It might not be mandatory, but how about being a little bit considerate towards others? There is always a slight chance of ruining the experience for others.

The feeling of Terra Formars getting a season 2, must the same feeling a cancer patient gets after they go into remission and start living a normal happy life again...only to later get news that the cancer has returned aggressively and they're now terminal.

Interesting to see they picked up a new studio and staff. Seeing as how even though it sucked, it was super popular in Japan.

If it sold well, but they were still willing to admit that there were faults and picked up new staff members to do better, then this season might actually be watchable.

I thought first season bombed big time. How come it gets a sequel after that failure where censorship was just a part of the problem?

The manga is REALLY popular.. If you haven't noticed.

Yay, more joke material.

TYO my man, your other series (or should I say OVA?) about life on Mars was waaaaaaaaaaaaaay better than this one... but it seems that Planet Cockroach: The Avvenire is....

Can't wait for censorship parodies.

Nov 8, 2015 2:27 AM by ExTemplar

Funny censorship or bust.

The art of TF is really good.

they want revenge for getting low rates from the first season

Nov 7, 2015 7:36 PM by zetsu_shoren

Hope they will handle it better than the first season because many interesting characters will show their fangs this season...
