From Los Angeles to New York, faster than anyone else. This goal is pursued by the brilliant but socially clumsy engineer Apare Sorano and the clever but cowardly samurai Kosame Isshiki, who one day decide to participate in the Trans-America Wild Race. With the prize money they want to return to their homeland in Japan, but first it is important to outdo all competitors on the track through the untamed West.

Will there be a Season 2 of Appare-Ranman!

At this time, it is not known whether Appare-Ranman! gets new episodes. However, the chances are poor, as the series is described as “finished” on most platforms. Should this change and a 2nd season is announced, we will try to renew this article in a timely manner.

Appare-Ranman! was produced as an original anime at studio P.A. Works. The series aired from April 10 to September 25, 2020. A manga adaptation by Ahndongshik was serialized in Kadokawa Shoten’s Young Ace magazine from April 3, 2020 to January 4, 2022, despite this, the third volume of the tankobon was previously published on December 28, 2021. Therefore, there is no manga chapters* that we can use to orient ourselves as far as the plot is concerned. Even the greatest hits of the studio including ‘Charlotte‘ and ‘Angel Beats‘ still only have single one-cour seasons. Don’t give yourself too much hope – a sequel is probably not possible.

Appare-Ranman! Season 2 Release Date

On the off chance, if the creators of the show decide to continue its run, we can expect Appare Ranman Season 2 to release sometime in 2023 or later. Since it is an original anime, the creators of the show will have the liberty to take its storyline in any direction they want. But then again, most original anime never get second seasons, so we’ll just have to wait and see if this one’s an expectation.

Appare-Ranman!: Action

No dream is too big for Appare Sorrano, a socially-awkward inventor living in a small rural town in Japan in the late 19th century. Fascinated since childhood by the creation of steamships that can connect people across great distances, he’s learned to make machines of all kinds from various scientific texts. His goal is to sail across the sea, beyond the sky, and ultimately, to the other side of the moon.

Unfortunately, through a string of events, Appare finds himself stranded in the middle of the sea on his mini steamship. Floating alongside him is a skilled but cowardly samurai, Kosame Ishikki, who was tasked to keep his eccentric behavior in check. Just when all hope seems lost, a large steamship saves them and takes them to Los Angeles. With no money or plans, they decide to participate in the “Trans-America Wild Race,” which gives Appare the chance to build his own automobile, and Kosame the opportunity to use the cash prize to return home. However, against rival racers and unknown challenges residing in the wilderness, just how far will this adventure take Appare and Kosame?
