Prison School Season 2 Release Date Status, Cast, Plot And Much More

Akira Hiramoto created the Japanese manga series Purizun Sukru (Prison School). The anime is based on the manga and features a prominent all-girls boarding school known for its high education and severe discipline. The 12-episode first season launched in 2015 to positive reviews. Since then, people worldwide have been excitedly anticipating the Prison School Season 2. Here’s what we know.

When is Prison School Season 2 coming out?

Season 1 of Prison School began on July 11 and ended on September 26. There have been talks of a second season. The makers have not announced plans for a second season. While the manga series is still going strong, the fact that the anime only sold roughly 4500 units per volume isn’t encouraging.

Naoyuki Uchida, a mystery and horror author, recently approached Prison School and SHIROBAKO director Tsutomu Mizushima on Twitter regarding Season 2. Considering Mizushima’s stance, the second season of Prison School is unlikely.

We can only hope for another season of Prison School. If that happens, we can safely assume that ‘Prison School season 2 will be released in 2022. We have yet to hear from the producers or the studio – who are notorious for keeping secret new productions and release dates. Official sources have yet to reveal the air dates and other details about a second season, so we’ll have to wait.

English Dubbing of Prison School

We all know that while the Japanese cast has received overwhelming appreciation, the English dub has received harsh criticism for its casting, voice acting, and script. Fans of Prison School Season 1 can watch the English dub on Funimation and Anime Lab. It’s also available on Hulu and Crunchyroll with English subtitles.

Plot

Prison School is set at a prominent all-girls boarding school noted for its high curriculum and severe discipline. That changed after the school policy was revised to allow males to attend as well. First-semester acceptance of only five males results in a schoolgirl-to-boy ratio of 200:1. Boys try everything to get close to girls, including peeing in girls’ bathrooms, but the stringent Underground Student Council stops them (USC). Infiltrating the girls’ bathing area results in their confinement in the school’s Prison Block, where they are given a month in prison or expulsion by the USC.

“The imagery is gorgeous, and the dichotomy of utilizing such wonderful visuals to express a hilarious story is interesting,” said voice actor Kamiya Hiroshi. The main feature is the vulgarity and filth, but the dramatic prison break tale truly caught me. Trying to flee Kiyoshi and his pals teaches them a lot. The lads’ friendship is endearing. And the tale is exciting, so I’m always eager for the next part. Crazy is a bit strong, but the filmmaker is certainly picky. He’s careful about which sentences work best in which scenes.

Characters of Prison School

Kiyoshi Fujino (Hiroshi Kamiya in Japanese, Austin Tindle in English): Taishi Nakagawa presents him. He is the primary character who is in love with Chiyo. Despite his lack of intelligence, he is resourceful and quick-witted. Hana often targets him in prison due to multiple embarrassing events. He is the only one who has been put in school prison more than once. While incarcerated for the second time, USC and Mari become allies.

Takehito Morokuzu (Katsuyuki Konishi, English): “Gakuto” speaks in an old-fashioned manner and is slightly insane. Despite his oddities, Gakuto is a brilliant strategist who adores Mitsuko. He is a successful strategist who adopts the methods of The Three Kingdoms generals or other ancient generals to secure the success of his projects. Gakuto is one of the series’ most popular characters, owing to his brains and willingness to sacrifice for his comrades. His character arc is as vital to the plot as the protagonists.

Kenichi Suzumura (in Japanese) and Clifford Chapin (in English): His golden hair is out of place. He’s pessimistic. Anzu, his love interest, went to the same middle school as Kiyoshi. When Kiyoshi tries to escape away, he is shunned and singled out until USC urges him again.

DAISUKE NAMIKAWA IN JAPANESE AND CHRIS BEVINS IN ENGLISH Joe is the “misfit” and is known as “Joe”. He has an odd obsession with ants yet is physically weak due to severe stomatitis. Joe went to Gakuto’s middle school. Sato is his lady love.

Reiji And (voiced by Kazuyuki Okitsu in Japanese and Sonny Strait in English): While he cares for his pals, he enjoys pain. He likes Meiko so much that he craves her chastisement.

Characters from the Underground Students Council are also featured (USC). Characters include:

The Japanese version of Mari Kurihara (voiced by Sayaka Ohara): She is the USC president. She is the daughter of the chairman of Hachimitsu Private Academy and is cold and manipulative. Mari has always detested boys and doesn’t believe her father’s decision to open the academy to males. Despite her cool and calculated personality, Mari has a sensitive heart, as evidenced by her concern and support for Meiko when Kate insults her. “Anyone who likes birds isn’t all bad,” she says. Kiyoshi has a crush on Chiyo, her sister.

Shizuka Itou (in Japanese) and Whitney Rodgers (in English): She is tall, wears glasses, and is the USC Vice President. She also supervises the lads in prison in the episode. She was ridiculed and criticized for her huge breasts until Mari came to her rescue. She has become one of the school’s strongest characters and is an expert in Judo. She is a strict disciplinarian who frequently targets Gakuto. She is a formidable figure, but she is afraid of offending Mari, as seen by her body-wide heavy sweating while she is present. Climbing is her thing.

Kana Hanazawa (in Japanese) and Alexis Tipton (in English): In the show, Hana is the USC secretary who usually gets in trouble with Kiyoshi. She later develops affection for her. When Meiko’s tough discipline techniques don’t work, she employs karate to beat guys ruthlessly. She appears collected and tough on the outside, yet she is impressionable, knows nothing about boys, and is often unable to adapt to unexpected situations.
