Share

Megalo Box 2: Nomad marks the 50th anniversary of the series’ manga by Chikara Sakuma. As fans now enjoy its return on the small screen, the franchise revealed its official number of episodes, BluRay disc set, and more.

Megalo Box 2: Nomad started airing on Sunday, April 4. It once again reminds fans of the legendary anime series that started in 2018.

Number of episodes, BluRay disc set, and more

According to Epic Dope, the second season will have a total of 13 episodes.

It will also have a limited edition BluRay disc set that will feature the whole season and an additional new short.

The disc will be out on July 28 with a price of $350.51 and comes with a lot of additions.

It has a special booklet with You Moriyama’s artwork, Episode 1’s storyboard and scenario, and non-credit OP, ED.

It will also feature a teaser and main PV and a special box with Moriyama’s illustration.

In addition, Animate, Rakuten Books, and Amazon will come with original illustrations as part of store privileges.

Gearless Joe’s return in the second season

Fans expect to see more battles in Megalo Box 2: Nomad. Though viewers celebrate the fact of Joe’s return, they are surprised to see him full of scars.

They don’t even see it coming that he will change his name to Nomad. Why is that so?

The second season features a five-year time gap between the two seasons.

After suffering from substance abuse, the change fans have been waiting for may finally happen in future episodes.

Also, Moriyama released a statement to explain why the second season is called Nomad.

“What should be portrayed in a modern story?” he asked, per Comicbook. “That was the major theme in creating the sequel.”

“Three years have passed since the end of the last season, and I felt again that it is very difficult to understand something in a world that has changed so much, and we need help there,” he continued. “In the midst of all this, I now strongly believe that the thoughts and choices we put into our story were not mistakes.”

Moriyama added the second season’s title alludes to the character’s loneliness.

“People with loneliness and hope, drift, meet, and pass each other in search of light,” he explained. “What I was trying to portray was each person’s way of life.”

“So I put that into the title. I hope you will accept this work as a new story called NOMAD,” Moriyama revealed.

Fans who want to start watching Megalo Box 2: Nomad can start seeing it on Funimation.
