The Ones Within: About the Show

The Ones Within Season 2
Still from the Ones Within Episode 7

The Ones Within is an Isekai anime based on a web manga series by Osara. It was released back in 2019 as an anime adaptation of the original manga material. The show is not really a breath of fresh air in the genre, but it still offers a lot to watch. The story of the show is based around mystery and this is mostly a mystery anime at its core and does not take liberty for innovations.

The story of the anime follows our main protagonist, Akatsuki Iride, an online sensation who is famous for his “Let’s Play” videos. Japan has been undergoing a serious children disappearance problems and without much solution. Things change when Akatsuki plays a magical video game that takes him inside the video game world. This video game world is the same one where all the other kids had disappeared off to. Initially skeptical about the game, Akatsuki was now stuck in the game itself. The show follows the kids and Akatsuki as they battle their innermost fears and dark pasts. It sees them fighting just for a glimmer of hope to complete the game and earn their much desired freedom.

The Ones Within Season 2: Renewal and Release Date

The Ones Within Season 2
There has been no announcement for season 2 of the show yet

While the first season of the show had mixed reviews, the web manga series that it is based on is still being written to this day. So it seems highly likely that a season 2 of the show might be possible in the near future, given that we have enough material for the same.

So far, the original manga has been putting out 2 volumes of the same every year. And the first season itself had around 8 volumes pushed into one season. So it seems highly unlikely that we would be seeing a second season anytime soon.

There have been no announcements by the publisher so far about the future of the show and that leads us to believe that there might still be time before a second season is announced, owing to the dearth of original material. The show is certainly very inspired in that it picks elements off of other great animes, but still the original manga material will be needed.

If an estimate was to be provided, we would say that late 2022 would be a good estimate. Given the rate at which the manga is being produced and the average time it takes for an anime to be produced. And that is being quite optimistic, honestly.

The Ones Within Season 2: Final Words

Given all of the above facts, we would say that the show might be announced late 2022. Given the fact that it has been 2 years since the release of the first season, that is a good estimate. However, a release before late 2022 doesn’t seem plausible for the show. It just would not fit in the timeline. And to be fair, given that the show isn’t that popular, it would come as no surprise if the show isn’t renewed at all.

For those who haven’t watched the first season, they can watch it on Hulu. Alternatively, you might be able to stream it on CrunchyRoll.

The show currently holds a rating of 6.9 on MyAnimeList, our preferred Anime website and the one we trust. It also holds a rating of 6.1 on IMDb.
