There is nothing particularly new or exciting in “Lost Song,” and it is by no means a groundbreaking animation. But it’s great fun and interesting in its own right. Surprisingly, it ends up exceeding your wildest dreams. My initial impression was that it was just another generic fantasy anime with no really fascinating or unique features. However, the plot twists and turns put me on the edge of my seat to the very end. Almost every turn in the story brought a fresh surprise, and nothing happened by chance. There are just 12 episodes, but the show’s pacing is so good that it effortlessly moves from one story revelation to the next. What sets this anime apart from the rest is its unpredictability.
With any luck, the show will pick up enough viewers to warrant either a second season or a spin-off. Jump to the next section for information on whether or not we will be receiving a new season of this fantastic anime.
Lost Song Season 2 Renewal Status
For two long years, Lost Song devotees have waited for an update on the show’s future. Neither Netflix nor the production companies have announced any plans for a second season. Therefore, followers are getting restless and want to know if Season 2 of Lost Song will ever be released. However, the show has been marked as “ended” on Wikipedia. Netflix may have quietly canceled the show.
Lost Song Season 2 Release Date
On April 8, 2018, the first episode of the first season of ‘Lost Song’ aired, and on June 16, 2018, the last episode aired. Netflix began making the first season available for streaming around the world on a weekly basis beginning on October 5, 2018, six months after it first aired in Japan. While Netflix has yet to make any formal announcements regarding the show’s renewal, the show’s creators have been dropping hints on social media. If everything goes according to plan, season 2 of “Lost Song” will premiere in 2023. We will revise this section as new information becomes available.
Lost Song Storyline
The border settlement where Rin, a lively little girl, resides, is surrounded by grass. Finis is often seen spending her days alone in the royal palace of the busy capital. Despite their seeming differences, the ladies are united by a unique ability: the power of song, which can mend wounds and generate and control water, fire, earth, and air. As the threat of war looms over the kingdom, the two young women will each embark on a perilous trip that will inevitably taint their magical songs with the blood of innocents. As their loved ones die in a stone jail, Rin and Finis pray that their final song will be a message of hope.
