The first season of Akame Ga Kill was released in 2014 and only managed to sell 2,150 copies per disk.

The number of anime series that sold below 3,000 copies per Blu-ray disk is usually considered very bad.

Approximately, Akame Ga Kill Manga volume 14 sold around 160,000 copies, and manga volume 15 sold over 150,000 copies.

Although it’s not bad, it should be around 250k.

But still, it’s not in the top 200 popular manga series.

Only 5 figurines are available. The series has produced fewer than 150 pieces of merchandise. The numbers are not good especially when it’s an anime adaptation.

Release Date of Akame Ga Kill Season 2

Release Date of Akame Ga Kill Season 2

It’s very hard to say if there will be a season 2 of Akame Ga Kill or not. Many anime are popular yet they do not receive new seasons, while some others continue to be renewed.

However, Akame Ga Kill being loved by many viewers is a fact that cannot be denied. We can hope that it will get renewed for sure.

Why Akame Ga Kill will never be released? Let’s find out what happened to this.

The main reason that the second season is not being released is because of the profit. As you know profit is the main factor for the studio and director. If there is no profit the director and studio don’t want to invest in that series anymore. So profit is the main reason why the second season of Akame Ga Kill has not been released yet.

So what I’m thinking is that Akame Ga Kill Season 2 will never be released, so don’t wait for it. It’s gone now.
