It’s been over a year and no recent news has been disclosed regarding the Hinomaru Sumo Season 2 release date and that is why today we are here with all the updated details on when you can expect a season 2 to be renewed.
With a rating of 7.0 on IMDB, Hinomaru Sumo is one of the best sumo sports anime online, and Season 1 touched so many lives that enthusiasts can’t wait for Season 2 to be released.
Would you like to recall the plot? Let’s recall for those who haven’t watched the show previously. This is a story of a boy called Hinomaru. His journey starts from the first day when he went to the high school name Ushio Joins Odachi. He went for the Sumo Club on a similar day.
For being a sumo one should strike out a height of 5.4 feet meanwhile Hinomaru was a boy of short length but this is not a big deal for him because he wants to be the best and do methods for that too.
Hinomaru Sumo is Japanese sumo manga series written and illustrated by Kawada. It was serialized in the Weekly Shōnen Jump journal from May 2014 to July 2019, with its chapters compiled into 28 tankōbon volumes by Shueisha. A 24-episode anime television series modification by Gonzo aired from October 2018 to March 2019.
Hinomaru Sumo or Hinomaruzumou is the story of a boy called Ushio Hinomaru aka Onimaru Kinitsuna as his stage name whose sole objective in life is to be a Yokozuna, but because of his small height he can never ratify the physical test and that is why he needs to be at every school in his prefecture and then go to the nationals and win the nationals to get a direct scholarship to the permissions.
Winning the nationals is the only option Ushio has, if he doesn’t win the nationals, then his wishes of being a Yokozuna will be broken down, and thus starts his voyage with his newfound friends at Odachi high school.
Ushio begins his journey with his friends and finally reaches the nationals where he has to face even hard opponents and since it’s a team match, he alone cannot win the entire thing.
Season 1 is all about Ushio and his friend's training and facing one foe after another. To win the nationals, Ushio has to win against Kozu Sosuke, son of the retired Yokozuna Yamatokuni.
At the end of the Hinomaru Sumo season 1, we see Ushio going toe to toe against Kozu Sosuke and overthrowing him, thus ensuring the third win for his team and winning against Eiga high at the nationals.
Ushio then vied in the All-Japan National Championships where he lost to Tennoji and seized third place. Tennoji won the entire thing and received the right to be become a fifteenth-ranked makushita, while Ushio came to be a sandanme. Kozu Sosuke declared openly his entry into the pro leagues as well.
So this is how the first season ended and now fans are eagerly waiting for a Season 2 where we get to see Ushio’s exploits at the pro event and his journey of becoming a Yokozuna.
Even though the anime was adored by fans from all over the world, the sales were very low and that is why fans are discussing that maybe there will never be a second season.
But according to many anime critics online, there are high probabilities of a second season being released. The second season of the Hinomaru Sumo will star Onimaru’s journey to coming to be a Yokozuna and the hardships he will confront in the way.
Even though no Season 2 trailers or any announcement regarding it has been announced online, we have high expectations of the second season being released in 2021. We expect Hinomaru Sumo Season 2 or Hinomaruzumou S2 furlough date to be around in June 2021.
Hinomaru Ushio was voiced by Takuya Eguchi, Shinya Ozeki was voiced by Taishi Murata, Yuma Gojo was voiced by Shunsuke Takeuchi, among others.
This is the most popular question when somebody discusses impending animes or series. I don’t think there will be some major differences in the characters because characters are the only thing that stays constant.
The Hinomaru Sumo Season 2 will come back on the cover of us soon if the producer wants. Once the show gets a green dot, after that we could expect something more from the creators.
Hinomaru Sumo is a great watch. Characters are well-rounded and charismatic, the Sumo is suspenseful and the fantasy of the sport is well understood. The MC is desirable and well-voiced, the art is placed on and doesn't let you down in the heat of the battles.
